Islamic finance is one of financial services’ fastest developing sectors, growing at 10-12% annually in many Muslim countries. Islamic finance seeks to distinguish itself from conventional, interest-based finance by promoting ethical and socially-responsible investments and raising, using and lending capital in accordance with Shari’a, or Islamic law.

Islamic commercial jurisprudence prohibits:

  • Interest on loans or securities
  • Speculation
  • Uncertainty in certain contractual terms
  • Anti-social business activities

KPMG provides the following services in this area:

  • External and internal audit services in accordance with IFRS and AAOFI standards

  • Shari’a compliance tests 
  • Training 
  • Accounting advisory on shari’a products 
  • Corporate finance and transaction advisory
