Artisans of Islamic Finance

Like true artisans, we initiated and adopted our own innovative dual banking leverage model which enabled us to offer our clients the most comprehensive suite of Islamic financial solutions in Consumer Banking, Wholesale Banking and Asset Management as well as private banking and wealth management solutions. 

CIMB Islamic has grown to become ASEAN’s leading mid-sized, full-service universal Islamic banking franchise; and we have been recognised year after year as one of the industry’s pioneers and game-changers. Yet through it all, we remain artisans at heart – dedicated and completely focused on crafting and developing new, practical Islamic financing innovations that add real value to our everyday lives.

We are proud to be recognised as a pioneer in Islamic financial markets, having advised on the world’s first Shariah compliant exchangeable Sukuk and the largest sovereign Sukuk issue. Today, we are one of the world’s largest sukuk issuers.
