Bloomberg launches Malaysian foreign currency Sukuk index

Posted on 09 June 2011

Bloomberg executives announced the launch of the Bloomberg Malaysian Foreign Currency Sukuk Index (BMSSUTR), a non-ringgit denominated index developed in conjunction with Bank Negara Malaysia. The new Bloomberg index provides a global benchmark for the performance of sukuk bonds and the ability to track movements of foreign currency issues.
“The Islamic financial marketplace is growing rapidly and there is high demand for more transparency, pricing, risk and return information,” said Gerard Francis, a Bloomberg Professional service executive. “We believe that this latest index will become the instrument of choice to help investors and fund managers maximize their investments in Shariah finance. It is also another sign of our 20 years of experience and commitment to the region.” (Press Release)
