The global gold investment markets

Traits for Shariah-based investment solutions

The current COVID-19 pandemic and its economic consequences have shed a light on new market services that leverage the digital transformation shaping our new economic models; gold, in particular, forms the subject of our report.

The global gold investment markets: Traits for Shariah-based investment solutions

The macroeconomic environment and fiscal policies shaped around lowering interest rates in key Western economies and the current COVID-19 outbreak have both contributed to the increased emphasis on gold trading and investment.

The report assesses the current state of gold investment markets in core Islamic financial markets and analyses the key economic and business drivers of gold trade and investment, in particular the Shariah-compliant product offerings, and examines the opportunities that gold as a commodity offers for Shariah-based innovative investment solutions.

Additionally, the study examines the Shariah-compliant gold market in seven countries, and the regulatory and policy environment, products offered by various market institutions, and the regional differences in these markets.

The study also aims to present a high-level approach to align Maqasid al-Shariah with the SDGs and ESG and looks at how IIFSs can leverage technology to design products that will diversify their product offerings and boost the social value to markets and societies.
