The lender has chosen Citigroup, Credit Agricole , Deutsche Bank, HSBC, National Bank of Abu Dhabi and Standard Chartered for the roadshows, which will take place between March 12-18. They will take place in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
A potential dollar-denominated bond could follow the meetings, subject to market conditions.
