Malaysia Capital Markets 2012
The local bourse has seen a bonanza of major offerings in 2012, from the $3.1bn IPO of plantations owner Felda Global, to the dual Singapore-Malaysia listing of hospital operator IHH Healthcare. The corporate bond market is also on a record-setting pace, thanks in large part to a string of sukuk sales that included a $9.9bn debt offering from tollway company PLUS. Meanwhile a wave of consolidation, which has already transformed Malaysia’s banking industry, is now hitting brokerages, with at least three major mergers or acquisitions occurring in 2012. Developments on the horizon include the 2016 opening of the Tun Razak Exchange, which the government hopes will become a hub for Malaysian and international financial institutions. This chapter includes an interview with Tajudin Atan, CEO, Bursa Malaysia.
