Iran Islamic Finance Forum

Date: 23 Oct 2018
Location: Kish Island, Iran

About the Iranian Financial Markets

The banking sector of Iran is fully Shariah compliant, making the Islamic Republic the largest Islamic banking asset holder in the world. The banking community has 45 banking institutions including nine investment banks, three government-owned commercial banks, five government specialized banks, 20 private banks, two Gharzolhasaneh banks and one bi-national bank.

Iran’s first Sukuk paper was issued in 1994, based on Musharakah and in 2016, the Iranian government debuted its Sukuk Ijarah. The outstanding amount of debt instruments in the capital market is valued at US$7.89 billion.

In May, the Securities and Exchange Organization established foreign exchange-denominated mutual funds, foreign currency-denominated debt securities and foreign exchange-denominated hedging instruments to prevent the future effects of volatility of the Iranian rial against the US dollar.
