Announcement Details
Sukuk Perumahan Kerajaan

Bank Negara Malaysia wishes to announce the issuance of Sukuk Perumahan Kerajaan (SPK) by the Government of Malaysia under the Housing Loan Fund Act 1971. The purpose of the issuance is to refinance funding for housing loans to Government servants and to extend new Government housing loans.


Funds are raised through sukuk instead of loans as done previously, consistent with the Government’s continuous support in developing the Malaysian sukuk market. Future issuances of SPK will depend on the funding requirements of the ‘Skim Pinjaman Perumahan Kerajaan’.
