Real estate leader United Development Company (UDC) surged 2.14%, finishing at QR24.20. Barwa Real Estate Company (unchanged at QR29.20) announced that Barwa City Real Estate Company, a 100% owned subsidiary shall enter, subject to the fulfillment of certain conditions, into a Murabaha financing, with Qatari Diar Finance a 100% owned subsidiary of Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company Barwa City shall, in turn, enter into Sharia compliant financing arrangements with Barwa Financial District WLL and Barwa Commercial Avenue Company WLL.
