Islamic-finance advisory firm has European companies in its sights.
Amanie Advisors, an Islamic-finance advisory firm, has tasked Noel Lourdes with expanding its business in Europe.
As head of the firm’s European Advisory Division, Lourdes will aim to help the firm capitalise on growing numbers of European companies looking to diversify their sources of funding. He’ll work in Dublin and report to group president Dr Mohd Daud Bakar.
In a statement, Bakar said: “We think that European corporates will really benefit from a better understanding of the core principles of Shariah-compliance investing and the benefits it can provide. Where there is a lack of capital available in Europe, Islamic finance has potential to offer a valuable and affordable alternative.”
