UAE’s Sharjah Islamic Bank (SIB) is expected to issue US dollar-denominated Sukuk by the end of June to boost its Tier 1 core capital.

Earlier this year the bank’s board approved the issuance of Shari’ah-compliant Tier 1 instruments for up to AED 2.8 billion ($762 million), to strengthen SIB’s capital adequacy ratios, reported Reuters.
