Malaysia sees opportunity in Korean sukuk

Bursa Malaysia and Korea Exchange promote Islamic bonds to Korean issuers.

In a conference room in Seoul, more than 200 members of Korea's financial community came together to hear about the possibilities of sukuk, or Islamic bonds, from Bursa Malaysia and the Korea Exchange KRX.

The information session was aimed at promoting awareness of Islamic financial markets in Korea where there is reportedly a high level of interest among corporates and in the government for sukuk issuance.
