He emphasized that the high ratings of these tranches reflect the quality of the subsidiaries’ portfolio and investor confidence in the company’s track record and its ability to offer compelling investment solutions.

Mohamed Aburiah, Vice President of Treasury and Securitization at GB Capital, commented: “GB Capital is proud of the successful conclusion of these issuances, which reflects MNT-Halan group’s confidence to act as the sole securitization largest special purpose vehicle – the company is considered amongst the largest SPV for private sector securitization issuances.”

GB Capital expects to close multiple issuances for its NBFI’s subsidiaries in Q4-2023, with a value exceeding EGP 8bn, which will raise the total issuances for the company to EGP 34bn.
