IFN Annual Guide 2013

The Islamic Finance news Guide 2013 aims to provide our readers with a roundup of the year’s industry highs and lows from an objective viewpoint of the market practitioners themselves. As part of this growing sector, we have witnessed unprecedented leaps in the Gulf Islamic capital markets space in 2012 beyond most expectations considering the current economic climate. Major issuances originating from up and coming sovereigns such as Qatar and Saudi Arabia created a stir in the market, and more importantly, has provided the impetus for similar issuances moving forward. 

Apart from movements in the Islamic capital markets, the Islamic equities space also received a boost last year with the listing of a major retail Sukuk issuance in Malaysia, growing interest for customized indices in the Gulf, and increased efforts by the industry as a whole to push forth within this space. Although it is still far from being recognized as a major sector within the industry, Islamic equities and its subsets such as REITs and private equity are picking up in the more progressive markets.
