The Asset's Daniel Yu speaks with Zainal Izlan Zainal Abidin of Securities Commission Malaysia about the country's strategy for socially responsible and sharia-compliant investing. In this podcast Zainal talks about the challenges in making Malaysia a global Islamic finance centre. He sees great potential for Malaysia as it rolls out new products, such as a sukuk ETF. Zainal believes the gradual harmonizing of Sharia definitions will fuel more cross-border transactions between Malaysia and the Middle East.
