The Malaysian bond and sukuk market is valued at RM1.3 trillion, of which government and sukuk account for 54% of total issuance. The remaining balance is corporate issuance. Nearly 97% of corporate bond and sukuk investors are from the domestic institutional market.
The Malaysian bond and sukuk market is the third largest in Asia (relative to gross domestic product). Malaysia also has the world’s largest sukuk market.
With the Securities Commission Malaysia encouraging more retail participation in the bond and sukuk market, retail investors will gain direct access to the bond and sukuk market while enabling issuers to issue their papers to retail investors directly
