Mr. Tony Daher, Group Chief Executive Officer of Burgan Bank, said: “Despite being one of the largest issuances in Kuwaiti Dinar, the successful completion of this transaction in a short period is a testament to the bank’s robust financial position, investment grade rating, and the positive developments it is undergoing.
