ISTANBUL, Sept 17 (Reuters) - Turkey is expected to raise
$1-1.5 billion through its debut dollar-denominated sovereign
sukuk, which is expected to be placed on Tuesday, bankers said
It is hoped that the bond, which has a maturity of 5-1/2
years, will set a benchmark for future sukuk issues by Turkish
banks and companies.
