Three to five years to comply with UAE lending rule – bank boss
According to Hussain Al Qemzi, CEO of Noor Islamic Bank, three to five years will be necessary in order to to comply with new central bank regulations. The regulations state requirements for lenders to limit their exposure to state entities in the Gulf state. The new rules restrict banks from lending more than 100% of their capital to government institutions or more than 25% of their capital to any state-related entities. Hussain Al Qemzi described the given timeframe as "challenging".
