World Bank-linked IFFI to price dollar sukuk on Thursday - leads

DUBAI (Reuters) - The International Finance Facility for Immunisation Co. [IFFIM.UL] (IFFI), for which the World Bank acts as treasury manager, plans to sell a dollar-denominated Islamic bond on Thursday, a document from arranging banks showed. IFFI will look to sell a three-year sukuk of benchmark size -- traditionally understood to mean in excess of $500 million (317 million pounds) -- and will pay an interest rate between 15 basis points and 17 basis points over the three-month London interbank offered rate (Libor). Qatar's Barwa Bank, Malaysia's CIMB , National Bank of Abu Dhabi , the investment banking arm of Saudi Arabia's National Commercial Bank <1180.SE>, and Standard Chartered are arranging the transaction. IFFI is rated AA by Standard and Poor's and AA+ by Fitch. (Reporting by David French; Editing by Mark Potter)
