Kuala Lumpur, 29 March 2007


New release date for SC list of Shariah-compliant securities


The Securities Commission (SC) updated list of Shariah-compliant securities will now be issued every last Friday of May and November. The list was previously issued every April and October.


This change is to streamline the issuance date of the SC list with the FTSE-Bursa Malaysia (FBM) EMAS Shariah Index review date. The FBM EMAS Shariah Index uses the SC’s Shariah-compliant list as a basis to construct the index’s constituents.


The first SC updated list of Shariah-compliant securities for 2007 will be released on 25 May.
