RAM – SIDC Bond Conference: Fresh Perspectives –
Engineering The Future Of The Malaysian Bond & Sukuk Market

 

The organisers of this bond conference, RAM & SIDC have designed a programme that will foster dialogue among industry experts who will be discovering their inspiration and journeys in the Malaysian bond market. The Conference will also set the stage to discover their aspirations for the future of the capital market.

Join us as leading researchers, regulators and players navigate the Malaysian bond and sukuk market. Let’s walk through some new developments and see how they will change the market in the coming years.

The Conference also hopes to unravel some of the intricacies that are impacting the way investors plan their portfolios. We have also built in solution-centric discussions with case studies to give participants a 3-dimensional take on Fintech, ESG and Sukuk.

Sessions have been created to infuse traditional ideas to deepen and strengthen the market like tenures, going down the credit curve as well as retail investors. The bond and sukuk market has always been at the forefront of building the country’s infrastructure by matching funding requirements to cashflow. Hence, we have also structured dialogues to deliberate on the future of infrastructure financing in the country with participation from industry leaders.

This Conference aims to build new relationships and strengthen existing ones as it will discuss key industry practitioners’ views on the market and what they predict for the Malaysian bond and sukuk market .
