Islamic Finance and Malaysia: Prime Opportunities for the Canadian Market
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is the undisputed Islamic Finance Capital of the World, an industry valued by the end of year 2013 at $2 Trillion; positioning it as one of the most important financial centers in the world. It is outshining Singapore and Hong Kong on this matter despite their attempts to establish themselves as “the” Islamic Finance hub.
By 2015, Malaysia will have reached the status of a “Fully Industrialized Nation”; an accolade that has not been conferred upon the overwhelming majority of the developing nations. As the gateway to Asia, Malaysia is a country that has strong underpinnings with oil and gas, palm oil, tin & rubber, financial services, resilient stock exchange as well as exporters of cars, computers (it has its own Silicon Valley called: Cyber-Jaya), rare-earths and more.
Malaysia also is very aggressive with international investments, the PETRONAS deal purchasing Calgary’s Progress Energy showcasing their desire to expand internationally, as well as being the largest purchaser of Real-Estate in London, England amongst all the South-East Asian Nations (last year 60% of all properties bought in London was via South-East Asia).
