Market Summary



Yield Movements

Local currency (LCY) bond yields in Malaysia jumped across all tenors between 28 February and 15 May. The yields tracked long-term United States Treasury yields which increased due to expectations of high consumer price inflation brought about by the government’s recent stimulus packages. Investors were also cautious over the uncertainty of the path of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some potential challenges to the economy are potential vaccine rollout complications and increasing number of cases that might necessitate another Movement Control Order. During the review period, the yield spread between 2-year and 10-year yields contracted from 126 basis points to 108 basis points.

Size and Composition

The LCY bond market of Malaysia grew 2.8% quarter-on-quarter (q-o-q) and 7.9% year-on-year in the first quarter of 2021, reaching MYR1,648.9 billion (USD397.8 billion). This expansion was due to the growth of both the LCY government and corporate bond market which grew 4.3% q-o-q and 1.0% q-o-q, respectively. The higher stock in LCY government bonds was supported by the increase in central government bonds. Outstanding sukuk or Islamic bonds jumped 2.5% q-o-q to MYR1,041.6 billion at the end of the review period, supported by expansions in both government and corporate sukuk.

Policy, Institutional, and Regulatory Developments

FTSE Russell said on 29 March that Malaysia had already been removed from its fixed-income watch list and the economy remained in its FTSE World Government Bond Index. The favorable decision was in consideration of Bank Negara Malaysia’s regulations that allowed better access for foreign investors to Malaysia’s financial market.
