Turkish Parliament passes tax neutrality law for Sukuk Al-Ijara

Almost unnoticed, the Turkish National Assembly in Ankara passed the Finance Bill 2011 in February 2011 which includes tax neutrality measures for Sukuk Al-Ijara (leasing certificates) thus paving the way for a spate of corporate Sukuk issuances in the country.
The Istanbul Stock Exchange also launched the first Participation Bank Index paving the way for Islamic equity funds and products to be launched in the Turkish market.
