Global Sukuk by Mohd Fadzil Mohamed

After a strong performance last year with returns of 10.6%, the Global Sukuk asset class continued to perform strongly in the first two months of this year. In March, it corrected in line with all other asset classes globally where most investors were impacted by the market turmoil following the Covid-19 outbreak. Nevertheless, we have seen a resurgence in financial markets as governments around the world delivered stimulus packages and economies starting to reopen.
