Many experts in Islamic finance work for international companies that do business in majority-Muslim countries. However, according to CNBC, Islamic financial institutions have been on the rise around the world. In the United States alone, there are about 25 Islamic financial institutions, offering services from investment banking to real estate financing.
You can also find Islamic banks in European nations like the UK, Germany, and Luxembourg. Islamic finance attracts both Muslim people and non-Muslim people alike, who find its community-based principles appealing.
