Shariyah Review Bureau in key UAE tieup
Dubai, November 27, 2012
Shariyah Review Bureau (SRB), a leading Sharia advisor with a scholarly presence in the Mena and Asia region, has partnered with UAE-based Ahmad Lootah & Associates to offer Sharia advisory, audit and certification (Fatawa) services in the country.
An independent professional accounting & audit firm, Ahmad Lootah & Associates described the partnership as a trend-setting strategic move.
“The successful strategy of doing business in the GCC is to ensure it is Sharia compliant and the caliber of SRB’s experience in Sharia matters combined with our advisory and audit skills will benefit the business charters of UAE based firms greatly,” remarked Ahmad M. Lootah.
He said the company was focused on providing Sharia complaint services to its clients in the field of audit and assurance services related to accounting, company formation and liquidation, IT and forensic audit, litigation support and arbitration, governance and risk management.
SRB chief executive Yasser Dahlawi said, “This corporate relationship will bridge the distance with our current clients while continuing to provide the full spectrum of Sharia competencies to institutional businesses in the emerging Sharia compliant capital markets within the GCC.”
“More and more people are searching for Sharia compliant products and services and our experience has shown that businesses seeking growth are rapidly shifting to progressive Islamic channels particularly in the UAE where many financial institutes, banks and real estate firms are dynamically taking steps to develop new Sharia compliant products to expand their sales and markets,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
