Islamic banking and finance to continue growth in 2013

Islamic finance in Malaysia prepares to compete more aggressively in the global financial market in order to continue its growth on a new level. In spite of the expected challenging year ahead and the slowdown in global economy, the continuation of the country's growth trajectory is very likely. The main reasons for the industry to remain favourable are the robust achievement recorded throughout the year combined with the “safe-haven investment” sentiment among investors.
