Islamic financial product

Sukuks are a financial product in accordance to Sharia law. It is a financial certificate comparable to a bond which allows the issuer to sell those sukuks to investors in order to purchase an asset of which investors have a partial ownership. The sukuk issuer is contractually bound to buy back those sukuks at a future date as per the value. The main difference between a sukuk and a conventional bond is the abstention from accumulating interest. Malaysia is the leading issuer of sukuk outstanding assets worth about 219 billion U.S. dollars, followed by Saudi Arabia and Indonesia.
