KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia's total bonds and sukuk outstanding grew to RM1.9 trillion in 2022 from RM1.7 trillion in 2021.

This reflected higher levels of bond and sukuk fundraising in the market, the Securities Commission said in its 2022 Annual Report.

The report said the overall Malaysian Government Securities (MGS) yield curve had shifted upward, tracking the movements of the global bond market.

This was driven by expectations of continued monetary policy normalisation globally and domestically, given elevated inflationary pressures.

The spread between corporate bonds and MGS widened across major tenures, except for three-year notes.

Meanwhile, the domestic bond market witnessed lower foreign interest, with net outflows amounting to RM9.8 billion in 2022 (2021: net inflow of RM33.6 billion).
