EFG Hermes’ managing director for debt capital markets, Maie Hamdy, considers investor’s interest in bonds is flourishing. “With the CBE hiking interest rates to curb inflationary pressures, the need for alternative corporate financing solutions continues to grow in tandem in our home market. At the same time, bonds in every corner of the global debt market are recovering as investors turn toward fixed-income assets once again.” Maie Hamdy said.

Advisors: EFG Hermes was the only financial advisor, transaction manager, bookrunner, underwriter, and arranger on the issuance. Dreny and Partners acted as legal advisor and KPMG checked the issuance.
