International Journal of Islamic and Middle Eastern Finance and Management

Description:

The international field of Islamic finance has been growing at an estimated rate of 15% a year, and is currently estimated to be worth something in excess of US$300 billion as new Islamically-compliant financial instruments and products are introduced.  This growth is occurring not only in the Middle East but in the Western world and in the developing nations of South Asia andAfrica.  There are now several Islamic financial institutions operating in the UK, Europe, and the USA.

The rate of growth of the economies of the Muslim world and in particular of the oil-rich states of the Arab Middle East is very impressive.  Much of this growth has occurred in the sectors of banking, finance and financial services.  Personal finance is also showing strong growth in these areas and among Muslim communities world-wide.

The status of Islamic hedge funds, the booming trade in Sukuk (Islamic bonds), retail and corporate lines of Islamic credit and derivatives as well as mortgages, auto financing, consumer finance, along with Islamic credit/charge/debit cards across the world are also current themes in this sector.

Managers in any company operating in or trading with the Middle East, Malaysia, Indonesia or Pakistan have to be aware of the existence of this sector and of its implications for Western ways of doing business.

At present, no journal provides comprehensive cover of research in this expanding area. International Journal of Islamic and Middle Eastern Finance and Management will serve as a central repository for research in the field, bridging the interests of scholars and practitioners and bringing the results of research and product development to the attention of the international financial and business management community.
