But all this was not acquired overnight. It took many key partners that range from the capital market regulator of the country, various government bodies towards the private sectors. Bursa Malaysia’s ecosystem majorly thrives as the total Islamic law was compliant of assets which have been currently estimated to the US $2 trillion and it has been backing up the green growth agenda of Bursa Malaysia (Musse, Nor and Ahmed 2021). The sustainability of Islamic finance exerted huge potential as it caters to the appetites of having a wide range of shareholders.
