In our network, many of the conventional banks that have had success in the Islamic arena have made a significant commitment to their Middle East and South East Asia offices. However, many newcomers now are going down the route of Islamic windows because it leverages their position rather than dilutes the strength of their bank.

Our consultants have developed a niche where they have a strong network in the Sharia-compliant space across a limited pool of candidates.
