Opportunities for Islamic Banks

With assets in the GCC worth over $600bn and well over $1.1 trillion for the wider region, Islamic Banking proves its effectiveness in tackling increasing regulatory requirements, growing investments into new products & Fintechs, increasing its geographical network and more. What can we do further?   

  • Standardization of product structures and documentations (IIFM, New Sharia’ Governance Module in Bahrain)
  • Investments into innovation and digital solutions (e.g. the board of most of the important Islamic banks regionally placed $15-50mn over the next 3 years for digital initiatives that could cost up to 50% of their retail revenues)
  • Compliance with the new regulatory requirements (i.e. increasing capital to comply with Basel III requirements, DIB raising AED 3.2 bn, QIB QAR2bn, Sharjah Islamic Bank of $500m in Sukuk, and more showing the appetite in the market and the competency of Islamic Banks in this region)
  • Expanding the geographical network (e.g. interests in Africa and Asia)
