MARC will be hosting its annual MARC MALAYSIAN BOND AND SUKUK 2022 VIRTUAL CONFERENCE (MMBS 2022) over two half-days on July 27-28, 2022, where the keynote address will be delivered by Securities Commission Malaysia's Executive Chairman, Yang Berbahagia Dato' Seri Dr Awang Adek Hj Hussin.

The conference will act as a platform to explore the latest insights on the bond and sukuk market post–COVID-19 as well as emerging global market trends, featuring panels of expert speakers from Moody's Investors Service, CIMB Investment Bank Berhad, HSBC Amanah Malaysia Berhad, Tenaga Nasional Berhad, Jentayu Sustainables Berhad and Bond Pricing Agency Malaysia.

On the first day of the event, participants can expect to gain deep insights into the nation's current economic standing and the capital market outlook for the remaining of 2022.

Day One will also feature a panel discussion on how the bond and sukuk market is faring and adapting to the transition towards COVID-19 endemicity. Central topics that will be explored include avenues that companies can take to manage their capital needs post-pandemic, how the hawkish stance on monetary policy by central banks around the world would pan out for the rest of the year and current investor appetite towards the debt capital market.

MMBS 2022 will continue on Day Two with a panel discussion on emerging global market trends. The conference is timely to drive conversations around ways for companies to build supply chain resilience, progress of Malaysian companies and consumers in fully embracing digitalisation, as well as the impact of current commodity, food and energy prices on inflation and the economy as a whole.

Overall, MMBS 2022 is aimed at exploring the current trends and challenges pertaining to the bond and sukuk market, especially in the era of the new normal post–COVID-19. Moody's Investors Service is MARC's event partner for MMBS 2022, and CIMB Investment Bank Berhad is a silver sponsor.
