This guide shows you how Shariah theory is applied to the private equity industry and how this works in practice. It gives an overview of the industry before focusing on key areas within it, such as profit sharing, valuation, risk mitigation, exit strategies, trust, monitoring methods and due diligence. Case studies and examples of business financial appraisals in the MENA and ASEAN regions, the UK, Europe and the USA give an in-depth view of areas including: the Islamic banking industry; its use as a source of funding in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, ICT, agriculture and fishery industries; and how it is used by investment companies as part of their asset management strategies. Each case study is accompanied by questions for classroom discussion or assignments.
