A small island nation aspiring to spearhead Islamic finance in South Asia: size does not matter
Share of Islamic banking in the national banking sector of the Maldives is reaching 5%. Despite this, the Maldives has not featured in ISFIRE previously. In fact, it has not been even ranked in Islamic Finance Country Index (IFCI), published by our yearbook, Global Islamic Finance Report (GIFR). This is an important exclusion, as the country has been involved in Islamic banking and finance for more than 14 years. This article should serve as a prelude to a country report that will be included in GIFR 2018, to be published in March 2018.
