About this title


Interviews with the professionals driving the rapid global growth of Islamic finance

Though the modern Islamic finance system has existed for more than forty years, its size and influence in the banking industry has expanded massively in just the last decade. This book looks at Islamic finance from the perspective of the experts shaping the industry, including some of the founders of the first Islamic banks—Haj Saeed Lootah, His Royal Highness Prince Mohamed Al Faisal Al Saud, and Sheikh Saleh Abdullah Kamel—as well as other professionals who have greatly influenced the industry. Editor Emmy Alim offers rare insight on Islamic finance with these insightful interviews focused on the development, rise, and future trajectory of Islamic finance.

  • Features rare insider perspective on the rise of Islamic finance with interviews from the top names in the industry in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the United States
  • An ideal resource for bankers and finance professionals working in traditional finance as well as Islamic finance
  • Written by Emmy Alim, Editor for Thomson Reuters Islamic Finance Gateway, a multi-platform forum for experts and professionals in the Islamic finance industry

From the Inside Flap:

With the shockwaves from the 2007/2008 global financial meltdown still being felt around the world, the flood of investment capital flowing into the more stable and socially responsible Islamic financial markets continues to mount. Currently boasting a phenomenal 20% annual growth rate, the Islamic capital markets are well on their way to assuming their rightful position as a major player in global finance.

As interest in Islamic finance continues to expand rapidly both within and beyond the borders of the Muslim world, finance professionals and investors everywhere are hungry for expert insights into the current state of the industry, knowledgeable perspectives on emerging trends that are shaping it, and well-informed opinions about its likely future. This book provides ample servings of all three.

In writing Global Leaders in Islamic Finance, Thomson Reuters Asia finance journalist Emmy Abdul Alim has accomplished a rare feat of scholarship akin to such modern classics as Market Wizards and The Money Masters. Taking her cue from authors Jack Schwager and John Train, she has brought together an elite group of leaders who have broken new ground in Islamic finance and let them express, in their own words, their views on the development, rise, and future course of the industry.

These visionaries include Haj Saeed Lootah, His Royal Highness Prince Mohamed Al Faisal Al Saud, Sheikh Saleh Abdullah Kamel, and Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, all trailblazers in Islamic finance. From the founding of the first Islamic commercial bank, Dubai Islamic Bank, which opened its doors in 1975, these visionaries have guided the evolution of this vibrant sector.

Joining these experts are a host of others from Asia, the Middle East, and the West who have had a formative influence on the global Islamic finance industry. These include banking pioneers, Shari'ah scholars, academics, and government officials.

In a series of candid narratives, those experts share their unparalleled insights into an array of issues surrounding the creation of a separate Islamic financial industry, the milestones and setbacks it encountered during its founding and evolution, and the challenges it yet faces in today's global financial marketplace.

Offering a rare opportunity to learn about the rise of Islamic banking and finance and the crucial issues affecting it, Global Leaders in Islamic Finance is must reading for all bankers, finance professionals, and investors.
