We have worked with different Sharia'a committees and advisers to structure some of the most complex and innovative Islamic finance transactions representing a range of institutions including sovereigns, corporates and financial institutions. We also regularly host and participate in Islamic finance conferences and training workshops across the GCC region.
Our experience spans all types of Islamic finance transactions (including sukuk, murabaha, mudaraba musharaka bai salaam, ijara, istisna'a,). DWF’s Islamic finance team have extensive expertise and experience in both Islamic finance and conventional finance and are at the forefront of innovation as Islamic financing techniques and products evolve.
The growth in the Islamic capital markets has seen the evolving of the structures that are used in Sukuk. According to the IIFM Sukuk Report of 2018, the Wakalah structure has become increasingly popular, and the number of Sukuk based on this structure has continued to grow.
DWF has announced further growth of its financial service sector group with the appointment of partner Martin Puglsey alongside the launch of a new banking practice in the UAE with the appointment of partner Umera Ali.
