Foot Anstey LLP wins contracts from Middle East by specialising in Islamic finance

<p>Foot Anstey LLP, a South West law firm, is winning valuable contracts from the Middle East by specialising in Islamic finance. The firm, which has five offices across the South West regi&oacute;n, is one of very few firms in the UK to be able to arrange finance deals in accordance with Islamic law. The Islamic finance team at Foot Anstey has recently advised Islamic banks and Middle Eastern investors on a range of high value and complex transactions. They have created structures to allow conventional and Islamic financiers to work together. Foot Anstey has already advised several Middle Eastern investors on Islamic finance deals. Although most of its business has been in the Middle East, where there is still potential growth, the firm is now looking to expand into South East Asia as well.</p>

Britain wants to be hub for Sharia banking

<p>Three million muslims live in Britain, and more and more of them are demanding financial products compatible with their faith. British business leaders are eager to cash in on this expanding revenue stream.David Slater and his colleagues of London and Partners, backed by the British government, are now pushing for London to become the global hub for Islamic finance and they&rsquo;ll be pressing their case at the 9th World Islamic Economic F&oacute;rum which will be hosted by London in October. The U.K. already has the largest Islamic banking sector outside the Middle East and Asia. Britain has also changed its commercial and taxation laws to accommodate sharia-compliant finance. More sukuk have been issued on the London Stock Exchange than any other bourse, worth more than $34 billion.</p>
