Malaysian Bond & Sukuk Conference 2019:
Capital Markets for a Sustainable Future

 

Market players and regulators expect the Malaysian bond market to remain resilient despite being reviewed by FTSE Russell’s World Government Bond Index (WGBI) due to market liquidity concerns. Bond issuances in Malaysia are expected to exceed RM100 billion in 2019, while the sukuk market is expected to remain resilient. How should market regulators, players and issuers respond to the current scenario to remain an attractive investment destination for investors, particularly from the international market. This event highlights the issues and strategies to remain resilient in an increasingly open and competitive market.

Initiatives by the Securities Commission of Malaysia (SC) have resulted in the capital market expanding to RM3.19 trillion as at end-April 2019. The capital formation was due to the ability of businesses to obtain long-dated financing through the equity, bond and sukuk markets. In 2019, Malaysia still maintains its leadership role in the Islamic capital market. This presentation mainly outlines the key economic achievements of 2019 and MARC’s domestic economic outlook for 2020.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) recognise that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.

Retail bonds are an important component of the overall bond and sukuk market infrastructure and the first of its kind to consolidate price and credit information. This special presentation will showcase a web-based centralised interactive platform which provides an advanced search engine allowing investors to filter bonds and sukuk in Malaysia which are currently standing at RM1.3 trillion according to their preference, for example the expected yield, duration and rating. The platform will provide access to a broader base of investors pool which in turn could strengthen Malaysia’s position as a leading sukuk and bond hub in the region.

The sukuk market saw continuous growing interest by new market players across jurisdictions.

DAY 2 - FRIDAY 29TH NOVEMBER 2019

In the years ahead, capital markets and investment banking are expected to see an increase in the attention to and adaptation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The 17 pillars of SDGs, set in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and intended to be achieved by the year 2030, are a UN resolution. Malaysia stands exceptionally well compared to other countries in terms of achieving these SDGs, especially in eradicating poverty and providing education and healthcare. Islamic finance, as one of the fastest-growing sectors in the global financial industry, provides a unique opportunity for innovative solutions. Forecasts indicate that Islamic finance assets are expected to reach US$3.8 trillion in 2022. With their emphasis on inclusiveness and broad understanding of business society relations, Islamic finance principles are highly aligned with SDGs, and forging new partnerships in this area will be essential to provide the much-needed reinforcements to finance and implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Fintech in capital markets emphasise the core concepts of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and examines the ways that AI could enhance or disrupt capital markets. Capital market players are well positioned to take advantage of the latest technological developments. However, until now, most firms have focused on using these technologies to cut costs, but AI has the potential to create value across an organisation in many different ways. This special presentation examines how AI can help transform decision-making in capital markets.

Presenter:
Mr. M. Nazri Muhd, Chief Executive Officer, Expert Analytics Centre Malaysia (EAC) and MyFinB Malaysia

10.30am-10.45am : Coffee Break

Malaysia has been successful in developing its capital markets, particularly its bond and sukuk markets. Now, it faces challenges on improving and creating access to the bond and sukuk markets and improving their efficiency. A high degree of investor concentration, dominated by government pension funds, may require the market to promote more diversity. Other challenges include improving liquidity and transparency, technology and confidence levels in both local and international capital market stakeholders.
