By 28/10/2020

Over a 10-year period between 2009 and 2019, the annual growth rate of sukuk in terms of issuance volume has outstripped conventional bonds. Global sukuk registered a 5.2 per cent compound annual growth rate, compared to 2.3 per cent for conventional bonds. Annual growth rates alone do not convey the full story, though, as the conventional bond market towers over the sukuk market in volume terms.
