I have spent some time in Trinidad & Tobago working with the Agricultural Development Bank on the strategic options to introduce Islamic banking into the country.
I was interviewed by Guardian newspaper about this topic. Among other thoughts, I have stressed that an Islamic bank is first a bank, then a Sharia compliant firm. A prudent Islamic bank shall confirm adherence to regulations and risk management rules as well as Sharia.
Enjoy reading the report here and let me know what do you think about an Islamic banking in the Caribbean.
