Economics, politics spur Islamic banking in Oman

With its foray into Islamic Banking just this May, Oman could potentially take a big chunk out of the $1 trillion-industry. But will the global expertise be there?

…come in line with the rest of the region and allow Islamic finance,” said George Sanders, partner at international law firm SNR Denton in Muscat.

“We’ve come across transactions that were held up or modified because investors had been hoping to use Islamic finance and had to rethink the deal because Oman didn’t have it.”
