Islamic finance in South-east Asia

Islamic finance offers an opportunity for certain classes of investors and lenders to provide financing whilst allowing Shariah-compliant businesses to tap the financial markets. Shariah-compliant instruments and financing are deeply entrenched within the Malaysian financial market sector. The ability to support the rapid development of this alternative mode of funding within the global commercial markets demands innovation, insight and collaboration of the highest order.
