Bursa Malaysia Shariah List: 20 Additions, 15 Deletion




EPF expects to see 1.5 mn of its 6.7 mn depositors migrate their retirement savings to a new Shariah compliant plan within the first year of its projected launch in January 2017.


● The new Shariah list , effective 27 May 2016, has 669 Shariahcompliant stocks, 74% compliant—20 stocks were added while 15 were deleted.
● Shariah AUM in Malaysia amounted to RM101 bn as of Mar-16 (35% in equities), up by 16% YoY. The Shariah AUM growth surpassed the 1% growth registered by total Malaysian AUM (exGLiCs) (RM669 bn).
● Bigger cap stocks removed from the Shariah list—Bumi Armada, Sunway Construction, Hume Industries and Kian Joo. Bigger cap names which are now Shariah compliant include Hong Leong Industries, Star Media and Amway.
● EPF expects to see 1.5 mn of its 6.7 mn depositors migrate their retirement savings to a new Shariah-compliant plan in 2017. This would account for RM100 bn in pensions savings. Thus, Shariah AUM could easily double from its current RM101 bn.

EPF could double the Shariah AUM

Employees Provident Fund expects to see 1.5 mn of its 6.7 mn depositors migrate their retirement savings to a new Shariah compliant plan within the first year of its projected launch in January 2017. This would account for RM100 bn in pensions savings, EPF CEO Shahril said in Feb 2016. Thus, Shariah AUM could easily double from its current RM101 bn.
Food for thought: Does this mean that Shariah heavyweight sectors such as Industries, Telco, Utilities and Plantations will command significant premiums, as Shariah funds become more dominant?
 The bulk of the banking sector is non-Shariah. Does this mean that the banking sector in Malaysia could derate?
