The Securities Commission (SC) expects gross issuance of corporate bonds and sukuk to remain healthy with RM110 billion to RM120 billion to be raised in 2022.
This was conveyed by the SC executive chairman Datuk Seri Dr Awang Adek Hussin at MARC Malaysian Bond and Sukuk 2022 (MMBS 2022) virtual conference, which opened yesterday.
Awang Adek said the growth of this market segment would be underpinned by Malaysia's strong sovereign ratings, well-developed corporate bond structure, experienced market professionals and a conducive regulatory environment.
"The domestic bond and sukuk market has demonstrated its resilience in the face of past challenges and was a source of stability for Malaysia's broader financial system.
