Islamic finance company Amanie Advisors is to set-up an operation in Dublin, IDA Ireland has said.
Amanie was established in Kuala Lumpur in 2005 and provides its clients with advice on the Islamic capital markets, structured finance and fundraising solutions.
From its Dublin office the company will also give advice on product structuring that complies with Islam’s Sharia law as well as Sharia supervisory and monitoring services, annual Sharia reviews and Sharia screening for equities.
Its European deal origination will be managed from the Dublin office by Noel Lourdes who was an advisor to the Central Bank of Ireland from 2009 to 2012 and previously practised with KPMG Corporate Finance.
