Islamic finance is growing in popularity as institutions are increasingly adopting some sort of Islamic finance practices. Malta is one of the jurisdictions pushing forward the practice of Islamic Finance.
Erremme Business Advisors (EBA) is one of the first Maltese firms with the right experience to offer advice when it comes to companies interested in investing and availing of the benefits that Islamic Finance brings with it.
What is Islamic Finance?
Islamic finance concerns financial services systems that are consistent with Islamic (Sharia) law. Islamic law prohibits usury, the collection and payment of interest, and investing in businesses that are considered unlawful, or haraam – such as businesses that sell pork or alcohol, or businesses that produce media such as pornography, which are contrary to Islamic values.
Why choose Malta?
There are various reasons for choosing Malta:
- The island’s strategic position in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, hence its proximity to North African countries
- The language: since English is one of Malta’s official languages, Malta can be an ideal place to host Islamic finance training institutions
- Highly developed financial centre
