Islamic finance has an important role to play in supporting the recovery from Covid

Andrew Hauser – Executive Director to the Bank of England has some thoughts on this which are shared by following this link to the Bank of England website

Andrew is of the opinion that Islamic finance has an important role to play in supporting the recovery from Covid and that the core principles of Islamic finance are extremely well suited to responding to some of the biggest challenges we’ll all face in rebuilding our economy once Covid has passed. Prioritising equity-like risk-sharing over debt, factoring ethical and environmental considerations into investment decisions, and embracing innovative financial solutions beyond traditional banking is key to recovery.

The expansion referred to would also show that Islamic Finance is now offered in over 60 countries and via 300 Islamic financial institutions. To put this into global terms, approximately 0.5% of financial assets are estimated to be under Sharia-compliant management. This progression and market interest has seen many non-Muslim countries throughout Europe and Asia now offering Islamic Finance solutions. 

If you consider the ever-increasing diversification of cultures, growth is expected to steadily continue for some time yet within Islamic Finance market place and so perhaps this is something to explore.
