Islamic Banking and Finance: A rapidly growing industry

Expected to experience double-digit growth in the coming decades, Islamic finance exists in over 75 countries, offering a broad and sophisticated range of financial products and services, designed to meet the financial and theological needs of the global Muslim community.
