Europe: A Rising Opportunity for Islamic Finance

A recent spike of interest in Islamic fiance from Europe is creating opportunities for global Islamic fiance hubs. Following monumental sovereign sukuk issuances by the UK and Luxembourg, several signposts lead to increased opportunities. Expanding trade links between Europe and OIC countries, growing preference for ethical fiancial solutions, massive infrastructure requirements to meet 2020 targets, governmental support for the Islamic fiance sector plus the structure of the EU single market system are all are seen to be providing opportunities for sukuk issuances, Islamic banking products and services, trade fiancing and Islamic funds.
