The financial crisis has been a blessing in disguise for banking institutions offering Shariah-compliant solutions, providing numerous business opportunities to them. Islamic banking institutions can now target a fresh HNW client base.
Reversion to more ethical investments by non-Muslims can offer Islamic institutions significant opportunities for expansion.
Strategic Management in Islamic Finance
The institutions which can take advantage of this shift in customer preferences during the current great recession should be in a position to become leaders in the future. Islamic law prohibits investing in businesses that are considered haram in Islamic ethical code. Islamic ethical investment structures avoid businesses that deal in gambling, alcoholic liquor, nightclubs, pornography, pork and such. Islamic investments rely on tangible asset-backed transactions and avoid sub-prime securities and financial leverage from hybrid products, derivatives and associated creative accounting practices.
Investors in Islamic investments have an implicit right of information on the use of their funds and the nature and performance of underlying assets. The comfort level of investors through this transparent guarantee on the proper utilisation of their funds is a clear advantage in Islamic banking. Non-Muslim scholars at the Anderson Graduate School of Management, University of California, have pointed out that, "Islamic finance will be less prone to inflation and less vulnerable to gambling-like speculation, both of which are fuelled by the presence of huge quantities of debt instruments and derivatives.
Many western social investments and green funds are based on promotion of environmentally friendly businesses. Islamic finance does not allow financing anti-social and unethical businesses dealing in gambling, alcoholic liquor, and nightclubs. In this respect, it is clearly ahead of the recent surge in ethical finance and socially responsible finance.
The financing it provides is mostly asset-based, whereby the Islamic bank knows the actual utilisation of funds due to the very nature of its transparently structured modes of finance. The global market for Islamic banking services continues to expand and the sector has perhaps the best potential for growth of any sector in international finance today.
Products that are compliant with Shariah law are gaining wider understanding and acceptance and are making their way into the international mainstream of financial products. The Islamic finance industry, with the help of leading bankers, product development managers, lawyers, regulators and investors, are contributing to new product innovations and expanding the market in breadth and depth.

Islamic finance is steadily making its mark across the world not only in regions with predominant Muslim populations but also in the Western countries such as the UK, France and Germany where a sizeable expatriate Muslim population resides and is increasingly keen to avail Shariah-compliant investment and financing facilities. Asset growth has been particularly pronounced in the GCC countries. Internationally, Islamic banks grew quicker than conventional banks, maintaining double-digit asset growth over the period Banking assets account for the majority of global Islamic finance assets worldwide.
The challenge for Islamic banks is to have high-quality service with leading edge innovative products, while at the same time, maintaining credible Shariah compliance. This applies to various retail, investment and corporate products. At present, most Islamic banks lack a segmented focus and implement a "one-size-fits all strategy".
TREASURY MANAGEMENT FOR ISLAMIC BANKS
Thus, they must adopt a focused and differentiated, customer centric strategy to grow quickly in a relatively small but highly competitive HNW market. The fact that these segments have higher average monthly household incomes suggests potentially profitable focus segments for the Islamic banks. The Islamic bank's liability deposits have historically been concentrated in Emirati and GCC national communities.
Though relatively smaller in numbers, the wealthy segments bring considerably more revenue per customer than the mass segments.
