ASSAIF - the oldest Islamic finance consultancy in Europe - provides worldwide strategic institutional advisory to governments, central banks, public and semi-public institutions, regional and local authorities. It operates on a projects-basis model by establishing core teams of professionals and local experts in the legal and Shariah, fiscal and administrative, financial engineering and marketing areas.

The long experience in Islamic, conventional and ethical finance enables ASSAIF to provide informed opinion and analysis with an intellectually inclusive approach and to structure products and instruments that join the implementation of the values advocated by the Islamic political economy to the techniques proper to Islamic finance. ASSAIF focuses only on projects that are spiritually, socially, intellectually, and economically beneficial to society at large and has been instrumental in bringing Islamic finance to new markets and extending its range of activities to new areas.

Furthermore, ASSAIF values and disseminates the culture of diversity and encourages the development of new forms of governance in Western societies that take into account the financial inclusion of the Muslim communities in full compliance with the national regulations and their own cultural requirements.

Islamic finance represents a workable alternative to the endemic crises that shake conventional finance. Based on real transactions and risk-sharing principles, it only deals with those sectors of the economy that can actively contribute to a sound individual and societal development. Its understanding of the nature of money, its dislike of credit brokerage based on interest rate, its wealth redistribution approach and its inclusiveness of all faiths and races, make Islamic finance a modern and sensible proposition.
