Demystifying Islamic Finance – Correcting Misconceptions, Advancing Value Propositions

Demystifying Islamic Finance – Correcting Misconceptions, Advancing Value Propositions
Zaid Ibrahim & Co.
May 2010

Demystifying Islamic Finance identifies 15 most frequent misconceptions and 10 main value propositions of Islamic finance. It highlights, among other things, that Islamic finance is not a mere replica of conventional finance. It also negates the notion that Islamic finance is superior and immune from unethical practices. The publication emphasises that Islamic finance is practical for stakeholders who wish to add depth to their financial system; enhance diverse product offerings and widen their customer base. In consequence to this, it shares the belief that the Islamic Finance opportunity will amplify avenues for investment and capital raising.
