IFIS Islamic Finance Awards 2013
The inaugural IFIS Islamic Finance Awards follow a year of intensifying activity in global sukuk and Islamic financing markets. The results put a spotlight on the highest achievers and showcase overall contributions to the growth of the Islamic finance market. The awards winners have been chosen through an exhaustive poll of industry participants. IFIS asked practitioners to pick the most impressive borrowers, banks, funds and service providers in the Islamic capital markets over the past 12 months (September 2012 to August 2013). The results of the poll have favoured innovative deals and businesses at the cutting edge of the Islamic finance market. IFIS awarded winners in the Deals, Borrowers and Arrangers, Islamic Banks and Industry Service sections after tallying respondents’ votes in each category. First place votes scored three points, second scored two points and third place one point. The IFIS League Table awards are based on the market leading IFIS Sukuk Database. IFIS measured the volume of dollar-denominated and global sukuk arranged by investment banks between September 10, 2012 and September 9, 2013.
