Islamic finance comes of age

Joint opportunities for Western and Arabic financial institutions

With the recent announcement by the Saudi capital market of four IPOs in April 2009, Islamic finance is riding high. The traditional values of Islamic finance are growing in appeal for Western investors seeking a safe haven from the current financial storms. With capital market regulators in the Middle East working hard to improve the region’s regulatory system and to offer a wider range of Shariah-compliant investment vehicles, new opportunities are opening up. Arthur D. Little identifies the
