MARC (Malaysian Rating Corporation Berhad) has again redefined the domestic rating landscape by winning the Rating Agency of the Year (Malaysia) award for the second year running.

Awarded by Hong Kong-based The Asset, The Asset Triple A Sustainable Capital Markets Regional Awards 2019 is the industry's most prestigious recognition in banking, finance, treasury and the capital markets.

The Rating Agency of the Year award honours the contribution of credit rating agencies to the Asia G3 bond market in providing investors and issuers with fundamental parameters regarding the creditworthiness of corporates, financial institutions and sovereigns.

MARC Chief Executive Officer Datuk Jamaludin Nasir says of the accolade, "This is a collective win for all stakeholders, including clients and arrangers that have put their trust in us, and continue to do so. It is also a well-deserved acknowledgement for MARC and our staff who have continuously strived for excellence."

MARC provides ratings in various corporate sectors, with our key capabilities being infrastructure and project finance given our longstanding track record in rating domestic toll roads, power plants, water assets and ports. MARC has previously been the recipient of Project Finance Rating Agency of the Year (Malaysia) by The Asset.
