The growing demand for Islamic finance is expected to continue, offering corporates today Shari’ah compliant cash and liquidity management solutions covering the entire working capital cycle. The Islamic finance sector is full of potential, but what will it take for Shari’ah compliant products to meet the growing expectations of corporates and effectively compete against their conventional counterparts?
