Details

Islamic finance is one of the fastest growing segments in the global financial market. However, while the principles and concepts of Islamic finance date since the founding of Islam, it is only recently that widespread application and practice has developed. Further, while predominately Muslim countries obviously fuel the growth of Islamic finance worldwide, both Islamic and conventional financial institutions in countries with smaller Muslim populations, including the UK, the US, and in Europe, are increasingly providing Shariah-compliant financial products and services. The recent global financial crisis especially has encouraged customers and regulators in many countries to consider Islamic finance as an alternative to conventional financial systems.

This book compiles recent and cutting edge research in Islamic finance, including Islamic banking, and provides a useful starting point for discussion and policy formulation for academic, industry and government researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and students alike throughout the world. Contributors to the volume include academics with Islamic finance expertise and practitioners and policymakers with a long history of involvement in the sector from across four countries. This mix ensures that the book has comprehensive coverage of many of the issues involved, is highly accessible to the professional and nonprofessional reader alike, and that it will serve as an authoritative source of information on Islamic finance for years to come.
