Although Islamic finance has constantly grown in the last decades, key theoretical and operative issues are still under debate. Recognizing the relevance of these issues, this website aims at providing an introductory guide to Islamic finance and its fundamental principles.

This website is managed by Dr. Valentino Cattelan, currently Associate Researcher at the Saudi-Spanish Center for Islamic Economics and Finance (SCIEF), IE Business School, Madrid.
