“We have always viewed the lack of “institutionalization” to be one of the key challenges facing the Islamic banking industry; Shariyah Review Bureau is certainly a step in the right direction as they have built a strong and credible platform of Shari’a scholars and coordinators who are not only knowledgeable in Shari’a itself but have a good understanding of general finance and economic principles and have consistently proven to be responsive and readily available to address our and our client’s questions, concerns and structural needs.

As many practitioners appreciate, one additional challenge facing the industry is the ability of the Shari’a advisory function to keep up with the pace required by financial transactions; SRB have impressed me not just by their constant availability to take calls and answer emails, but by the quick turnaround in the issuance of compliance certificates such that the timeline would match the transaction’s overall timeline. We look forward to continuing to work closely with them inshalaah”
