PETALING JAYA: Foreign flows into the local bond market returned to positive territory in May amid foreign investors’ flight-to-safety demand and Bank Negara’s hawkish pivot. Nevertheless, the magnitude was only a meager RM531mil, which did not completely offset the relative net foreign outflows of RM2.2bil in April. Total cumulative foreign holdings in the local bond market grew to RM911.1mil for the first five months of 2022, following the net foreign inflows. Notwithstanding this, they were significantly lower than the cumulative net foreign inflows of RM25bil from January to May 2021, according to MARC Ratings Bhd.

Jason Jean/Courtesy of MATCHESFASHION.COM In September 2018, Matchesfashion .com opened its doors to a new retail concept spanning five floors of a townhouse in London's Mayfair district.

- A + A NEW YORK (June 30): Tesla Inc fans are hard to shake. The electric-vehicle maker’s stock is set to post its worst first half ever with a 35% plunge that eclipses the S&P 500 Index’s 20% decline.

Indian corporates may face an elongated receivable cycle, or even default on payments by Russian importers due to the sharp fall in Russian Rouble , bankers said. The Russian Rouble fell nearly 30% on Monday against the US dollar after the country’s premier Vladimir Putin on Sunday ordered his nuclear forces to be on high alert in view of the evolving Russia-Ukraine conflict . Separately, in view of the steep depreciation of its currency, the Bank of Russia on Monday decided to increase the key rate to 20% per annum from 9.50%, the sharpest rate hike since 2014, to compensate for the increased depreciation and inflation risks. “This is needed to support financial and price stability and protect the savings of citizens from depreciation,” the central bank said.
