Central bank officials

“The Islamic banking industry, that consists of both dedicated Islamic banks and Islamic banking schemes in the conventional banks, continues to show commendable performance with profitability and assets surpassing for the first time the threshold of RM1 billion and RM100 billion respectively at the end of 2005. The industry has become a major contributor to the overall economic growth, with assets equivalent to nearly 25% of the country's gross national product.”

“…Malaysia's growth prospects are expected to strengthen in 2006. The favorable external demand would reinforce the sustained expansion in domestic demand, which is expected to be positive for both real income and employment generation…real private investment is forecast to expand…As a result of both supportive external and domestic demand, the economy is expected to register improved performance in 2006.”

Central bank officials2

“For Malaysia, the focus of policy thrusts in 2006 would be to build on the gains of 2005, ensuring fundamentals are strengthened and the flexibility of the economy is further enhanced. In this respect, the Central Bank will determine the interest rate policy to provide a sound environment for sustainable performance of the economy. Macroeconomic policy would thus continue to stress growth in an environment of price stability…Further efforts will therefore be undertaken to ensure that the economic and financial structures and systems are conducive for the building of a dynamic, resilient and flexible economy.”

Parity models

Parity Models

Purchasing Power Parity & International Fisher Effect


Relative ppp calculation

Relative PPP: Calculation

  • For currency quoted in European terms:

    Future spot rate = 3.78 (1+.037)5/(1+.038)5

  • Future Spot rate =3.761827


Relative ppp analysis

Relative PPP: Analysis

  • In recent years, the inflation rates of Malaysia and U.S. have been very close.

  • Thus, the Relative PPP model, suggests that the Malaysian Ringgit will appreciate against the U.S. Dollar, but not very much and not very fast.

  • Hence, according to this model, we recommend that companies that wanted to expand their operations into Malaysia do so now. The circumstances are favorable for that, because a stable exchange rate helps minimize economic and translation exposures, which are otherwise difficult to measure.


Absolute ppp calculation

Weighted Basket

The Malaysian Ringgit is quoted in European Terms. Therefore, the PPP exchange rate = ringgit price/dollar price.

Using this weighted basket, the exchange rate is R1.50 per $1.

Absolute PPP: Calculation


Absolute ppp analysis

The current exchange rate obtained from bloomberg.com is USD/MYR 3.6588.

Using the formula: (spot rate – PPP rate)/spot rate = (3.6588 – 1.5014)/3.6588 = 0.5896

From this, we find that the Malaysian Ringgit is undervalued by about 59%.

Since the currency is so grossly undervalued, it is reasonable to expect that the Ringgit will strengthen in the future.

This conclusion is supported by looking at the trend of the exchange rate for the year 2006:
