Islamic Finance: Growth and Prospects in Singapore

Islamic Finance: Growth and Prospects in Singapore
Habibullah Khan & Omar K. M. R. Bashar
June 2008

Abstract: "Islamic finance has been growing rapidly since its launch in the 1970s. The major market for this industry is typically the Middle East and it is gaining popularity in the UK, USA and Southeast Asia. Malaysia is the leading Islamic finance industry in Southeast Asia while its neighbor Singapore is relatively a new market player. Singapore revised its regulatory framework and tax structure and gradually introduced various Shariah-compliant financial products in the last couple of years. This paper argues that despite having small domestic market and competition from Malaysia, Singapore can still position itself in a niche market in the region. Through its strategy of integrated financial and economic development, Singapore can create new opportunities for Islamic finance and related financial products in the region."
