  3. To collect the revenues resulting from the collection of the revenues of bonds and to reinvest them; and
  4. To ensure the availability of liquid money for strategic projects in the Emirate of Dubai.


In order to achieve its objectives, the DFSF may:

  1. Grant loans and credit facilities to Governmental and non-Governmental entities;
  2. Issue bills, bonds, and sukuk or any other financial instruments on behalf of the Government in or outside the Emirate of Dubai to make available the necessary financial liquidity to finance the projects.
