  • SECTOR IN-DEPTH
    30 Mar 2020|Moody's Investors Service
    The Islamic finance sector remains underrepresented in the global financial system and has ample room to expand. Islamic banking, sukuk and takaful markets will continue to expand as governments support their development to meet increased demand.

    SECTOR IN-DEPTH
    25 Mar 2020|Moody's Investors Service
    Global sovereign long-term sukuk issuance will grow modestly in 2020, continuing the expansionary trend of the past few years. Larger issuers are driving growth in overall volumes even as some smaller issuers have not sought to refinance maturing repayments, leading to greater market concentration.
