Download (1769Kb) | Preview
Fuelled by the skyrocketing commodities prices and the booming middle-classes in emerging economies, the Islamic equity funds industry has been in the recent years one of the fastest growing sector in the global finance panorama. This paper discusses the peculiar characteristics of an Italian equity portfolio constructed following the Sharia'a provisions and the opportunities this industry offers to Italian financial institutions in both the retail and wholesale markets. This paper also discusses how these funds weathered the financial crisis and how they are able to offer a value-added to particular investor classes along with the ethical part.
