The total assets of the Islamic financial system have now surpassed around $1 trillion, a fivefold increase over their magnitude just five years ago. Islamic Finance is now among the fastest growing financial segments in the world, with an estimated annual growth of 20 percent. According to State Bank of Pakistan, the current global economic turmoil may have forced many major economies to cut back on their development plans but for Pakistan, this seems like an opportune time to step up measures that could further beef up its financial sector particularly Islamic finance. According to Islamic financial market of Pakistan in world context, the Islamic assets size is around 5% of total conventional assets size, whereas in few Muslim countries the market share of Islamic Finance is very high. For example in Malaysia where total Muslim population is around 65% of the total population, they have the share of Islamic Banking of approximately 20% of total conventional banking. This shows that being 99% of Muslim population of Pakistan the Islamic finance has great potential. The “Targeted Audience or Targeted customer” of this Ad is untapped prospective customers those who does not like to have banking with conventional banks and they wanted their banking transactions in line with Shariah.
