Achim Klueber, EuropeArabBank: "Sharia-conforming finance could be blueprint for remodelling finance."

With the conflict in Syria still unresolved and the political situation in many of the Arab Spring countries still shaky, North Africa and the Middle East are not necessarily high on CFOs' investment agendas. But the region has a lot of potential, says Achim Klueber, managing director at EuropeArabBank. In terms of its global GDP share relative to its population, the region has been punching below its weight for too long and will eventually have a lot of catching up to do. CFOs of construction and retail businesses are not the only ones who should be looking out for opportunities. Sharia-compliant finance could even be a blueprint for remodelling corporate finance in general, Mr Klueber says.
