Strong sukuk issuance and performance is anticipated this year

Strong investor demand supported by improving liquidity is expected to boost both issuance and performance of sukuk this year. Global issuance expanded for the fourth year in a row in 2012, growing 64 per cent to about $138 billion. While sukuk is still considered an alternative investment, it is believed to have the potential to grow, especially due to funding needs and large infrastructure investments in Malaysia and the GCC.
