Emirates Islamic Bank PJSC expects its Islamic financing business to increase by 5 percent to 10 percent this year, Gulf News reported, citing Faisal Aqil, the Dubai-based bank’s acting deputy chief executive officer.
The rise will be driven by an increase in financing to small and medium-sized businesses and to large companies, the Dubai-based daily said, citing Aqil. Provisions for bad loans have peaked and will decline, according to Aqil.
