The Malaysian Bond And Sukuk Almanac 2020 featuring special ESG sections

15 February, 2021

BPAM releases its annual publication, the Malaysian Bond and Sukuk  Almanac 2020 today. This report provides an overview of the Malaysian  bond market as at 31 December 2020 with special commentaries on  Malaysia’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) fixed income  landscape.

Presenting a complete guide on issuer profiles and  listings of government and corporate bonds and sukuk, the top issuers,  lead arrangers and trustees in various categories, the BPAM Bond and  Sukuk Almanac is an essential handbook for individuals, market players,  issuers as well as local and international investors.

“The  Malaysian bond market remains relevant as a primary capital raising  conduit for businesses. The current blight caused by the Covid-19  pandemic has been pivotal in the transition to an automated and  digitalised business environment for many organisations. BPAM remains  committed to be the provider of choice for relevant bond market  information for decision making.  Although the total new issuance of  bonds (and sukuk) has dropped in 2020 (MYR 366.7 billion) compared to  2019 (MYR384.8 billion), the future remains bright with ESG based  investments expected to be the main drivers going forward.” said Meor  Amri Meor Ayob, BPAM’s Chief Executive Officer.

The Malaysian Bond  and Sukuk Almanac 2020 is available on BPAM’s website and BondStream, BPAM’s custom made platform and data-mining tool for the Malaysian Fixed  Income Market.
