Banks plan Shariah assets for Asian millionaires

Kuala Lumpur/Hong Kong: Standard Chartered Plc will start Islamic private banking services in Asia and CIMB Group Holdings Bhd. plans to roll out new products for the wealthy as they target rich Muslims who have limited investment options.
The UK’s second-largest lender by market value will offer Shariah-compliant products tailored to meet the needs of people who have at least $2 million (Dh7.35 million), Wasim Saifi, the Kuala Lumpur-based global head for Islamic consumer banking, said in a July 6 interview.
Malaysia’s CIMB will market more instruments in the fourth quarter for clients with a minimum of 1 million ringgit (Dh1.15 million), Badlisyah Abdul Gani, chief executive officer of CIMB Islamic Bank Bhd., said in a July 10 interview.
CIMB says Islamic private banking has been slow to take off due to the challenge of creating enough investments that comply with Shariah law, while Standard Chartered estimates that seven out of eight Muslims globally bank according to non-Islamic principles.
