Featured Resource: The Islamic Finance Consumer

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

As Featured in the Islamic Finance Resources Blog

An emerging theme in the Islamic finance industry is the need to better understand the consumer.  The 'Muslim consumer' has become a well defined market segment but research is hard to find on this area.  Even the broader segment of 'Islamic Finance consumers" (Muslim and non-Muslim alike) is equally lacking appropriate data metrics.  Here is a shortlist of papers that have tackled the mindset and perception of the Islamic finance consumer in various markets:
