To set the scene, the host begins by introducing himself and introducing the guest in this episode, then proceeds to outline the purpose of the series, with a short preview of the topics that will be covered in coming episodes. Discussing the purpose of this series, Mohamed Barakat highlights four major topics to be covered, namely, securitization, real estate investment trusts, IPOs, and Sukuk; each topic will be covered in a single or multiple episodes depending on its complexity.

Securitization is the main topic of this episode, and Mostafa Elsakaa presents bite-sized, digestible content to help listeners understand what securitization is, how securitization certificates are issued, the role of the parties involved, and the relevant agreements and arrangements that memorialize and structure a securitization transaction.  

Tune in next time when Instruments of the Egyptian Capital Markets addresses the real estate investment trusts (REITs), identifying the contours of the REITS capital market landscape today as one of the instruments that effectively contribute to the development of the Egyptian real estate sector.
