KUALA LUMPUR: RHB Investment Bank Bhd has emerged No. 1 in terms of highest market share in the Malaysian Ringgit Bonds for the first eight months of 2013 as it targets to be a one-stop financial services provider for local and international issuers.
The investment bank said on Monday it had taken the top spot in the Malaysian Ringgit Bonds league tables by Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, Dealogic and Mergermarket.
RHB Investment Bank said its capabilities and expertise were evidenced once again by this noteworthy achievement.
RHB Investment Bank managing director and CEO Mike Chan the achievement “underlines our strength and capacity to continuously support both our local and regional clients to accomplish their funding needs”.
“We believe that the merger of RHB Investment Bank with OSK Investment Bank Bhd (OSKIB) has further strengthened our position as an investment bank with a regional platform that will enable us to better serve our clients across the Asean region.”
Chan said for this year, RHB Investment Bank launched about seven debt programmes and continued to help its clients raise funds from the debt market, given ample liquidity and suitable market conditions.
“We are committed in supporting the debt and Islamic capital markets and we aim to be a one-stop financial services provider for local and international issuers to participate in the Malaysian debt and Sukuk markets,” he added.
RHB Investment Bank's achievement is also a reflection of its experience and strength in various industries including infrastructure, power, plantation, property development, construction and Government-linked companies.
