2014 saw global Islamic finance spur economic growth in many jurisdictions, including beyond the traditional Islamic economies, spurring the industry to greater heights. In advanced economies sukuk provided an alternative fund raising option amid limited available fiscal space, with an opportunity for governments to establish themselves as Islamic finance players for future issuances. South East Asian jurisdictions attracted record demand for sukuk, while Islamic banking in Malaysia transitions into a more sophisticated market, spurred by evolving and forward-looking regulatory changes. In Africa Islamic finance is supporting real and sustainable financial activity, particularly for infrastructure and other economic programmes.
