President/ Chief Executive Officer of Cagamas, Kameel Abdul Halim said, “The Company successfully issued RM960 million worth of bonds and sukuk through its first public book building exercise this year.”

This allowed the Company to successfully tighten the yield by 5 basis points (bps) from the initial price guidance. The bonds and sukuk were priced competitively at a spread of 35 bps over the Malaysian Government Securities. This demonstrated the strength and resilience of the domestic fixed income market. Proceeds raised from the issuances will be used to fund the purchase of Islamic home financings and housing loans from the domestic financial system, reflecting continued provision of liquidity by Cagamas to the domestic banking system,” said Kameel.
