Qatar – New regulations for Islamic banking

The conventional way in which banks offer Shariah-compliant services and likely boost the performance of banks that focus solely on such services will be changed by the new rules for Islamic banking in Qatar released by the Central Bank in late August.
The new regulations, made public on August 29, prohibit conventional banks from allocating more than 10% of issued capital to Islamic banking operations and from opening additional branches for Islamic banking.
