PUTRAJAYA, Malaysia—Malaysia named Nor Shamsiah Mohd Yunus, a former central-bank official concerned in an investigation into state-investment fund 1Malaysia Growth Bhd., as governor of the regulator.
The appointment Friday confirms a Wall Road Journal report that Ms. Nor Shamsiah would change Muhammad Ibrahim, who resigned from Financial institution Negara Malaysia earlier this month. He left following revelations that some $500 million used to purchase land from the Finance Ministry was subsequently used to pay down 1MDB’s debt load.
