Structured, developed, arranged and advised by NewParadigm Capital Markets, this is the first structured transaction in Malaysia involving unbilled sales and the first in the world to involve affordable housing as well as the first syariah compliant securitisation of progress billings and monetisation of progress billings in the market globally.
In a release, NewParadign said that this transaction monetises future payments to be received from the sale of yet-to-be-completed development projects allowing the Issuer to more efficiently manage project development cash flows.
