DIVERSE. INNOVATIVE. SUSTAINABLE.
A global torchbearer in conventional and Shariah markets.
Today, we are globally-recognised as the best, most innovative exchange in Shariah investment – a distinction earned from pioneering various innovations in Islamic finance, such as Bursa Malaysia-i – the world’s first end-to-end Shariah investing platform, and Bursa Suq-Al-Sila’– the world’s first end-to-end Shariah-compliant commodity-trading platform.
Bursa Malaysia is also the world’s biggest palm oil futures trading hub. Our Crude Palm Oil Futures (FCPO) contract has long been recognised and referenced as the global price benchmark for the palm oil industry.
In 2014, we introduced the globally benchmarked FTSE4Good Bursa Malaysia Index which measures the performance of companies demonstrating good environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices. In 2015, we joined the United Nations Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) initiative, strengthening our commitment to promoting sustainable strategies among our issuers and the marketplace.
