Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The unprecedented rise in popularity of Islamic finance has, in recent years, led to a massive increase in interest in Islamic finance, capital markets and financial products. This has, in turn, led to a demand for more literature in the area, a demand that is in some way being filled. However, there exists no guide which provides real insight into the real world of Islamic financial transactions, and illustrates the complexities of this important mode of modern finance.

Case Studies in Islamic Banking and Finance is a one of a kind resource that fills this gap. Based around 13 individual cases, the book will stimulate discussion and develop the reader's understanding of Islamic finance by contrasting their existing theoretical knowledge against practical examples. The cases cover important topics such as Islamic finance, including Ijara and Musharaka contracts; Islamic mortgages for home finance; financing; and leverage. Each chapter concludes with a set of questions designed to test the readers understanding of each case, with suggested solutions at the end of the book.
