We are committed to matching market expectations in terms of transparency, accountability and corporate governance and have the highest corporate credit ratings in the Middle East – Aa3/AA/AA from Moody’s, Fitch Ratings and Standard & Poor’s respectively.

While the consistent backing of our shareholder gives us a base from which to fund and develop our investments, we are focused on implementing best practice commercial principles and the pursuit of solid financial returns.

In April 2009 we launched our inaugural Global Medium Term Note programme and continue to have uninterrupted access to the international capital markets. We also maintain long-term relationships with more than 120 local and international banks.
