NEW JOINT VENTURE

Qatar to launch rating firm for debt issuers

Doha, September 19, 2012

 

 
Qatar will establish an assessment and rating company for domestic non-government debt issuers and institutions, the Gulf state's central bank governor has said.
 
The entity will be a joint venture between Qatar's central bank and Qatar Holding, the investment arm of the country's sovereign wealth fund, Sheikh Abdullah bin Saud al-Thani said at a conference in Doha.
 
"This is part of our effort to create an institution that will supervise the valuation of domestic issuers and bonds. It will be for local non-government institutions," he said, adding that the company would be launched in 2013.
 
The country will also form a committee to encourage the development of its capital markets, he said. - Reuters
