Turkey is seen as a rising participation finance (Islamic finance) star. Over the years, the strong commitment from the authorities to create a holistic participation finance ecosystem has led the sovereign to introduce new regulations and reform others while pushing for the industry to take on a bigger role in Turkey’s financial system. By 2025, the Turkish participation banking sector is expected to hold a 15% market share from 5.1% at the end of 2015 when total assets of participation banks reached TRY120.3 billion (US$18.82 billion). Turkey still has a long way to go to achieve its goal in terms of modernization, standardization and innovation – taxation issues on participation financial contracts need to be ironed out and the lack of corporate issuances remains unsettled together with Turkey’s stand in terms of fintech.
