As one of the most powerful sectors of the global banking market today, Islamic Banking’s global presence, growing acceptance, ease of exportation, steady market and strong ethical foundation presents a new opportunity for financial institutions located in the Middle East to export their business outside of the region to serve the more than 1 billion Muslims living worldwide.
According to Dr. Eagle, financial institutions in the Middle East will be successful in exporting their products and services abroad by implementing comprehensive training for their employees. “Through training, banks will be able to build a well-educated staff that is familiar with Shariah-compliant banking products and services and educated on how to communicate them to their customers. With the number of Islamic banks growing throughout the world, it is important for Islamic financial institutions to offer banking products that are competitive with conventional products offered by other retail banks,” said Dr. Eagle.
