Malaysia: US$1.5 billion sukuk a sign of our Islamic finance strength

Malaysia's successful pricing of the US$1.5 billion (RM5.4 billion) global sukuk has strengthened the country's position as an international centre for Islamic finance, says Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
Najib, who is also finance minister, said the 30-year tranche was the government's inaugural sukuk issuance, which is also the longest tenured sukuk.
"This sukuk also fulfils Malaysia's objective of making the issuance a new benchmark," he said at the Finance Ministry's monthly gathering in Putrajaya today.
The issuance comprises US$1 billion of 10-year and US$500 million of 30-year benchmark Trust Certificates (Sukuk) for a total size of US$1.5 billion.
Najib said the deal was oversubscribed, attracting an aggregate interest of US$9 billion from a combined investor base of more than 450 accounts. – Bernama, May 19, 2015.
