Trevor Norman, Director of Islamic Finance and Funds, commented on this latest accolade: “It is a huge honour for VG to once again receive this prestigious award which is testimony to our team’s deep understanding of Islamic finance. Over the past year our team has expanded and we have taken up new initiatives in Islamic Finance, reaching out to new geographic markets and promoting the issues of Impact Investing, Green Sukuk and Women in Finance. For over two decades we have been committed to developing strategies that are specifically aligned to Shariah principles, working closely with our partners and clients across the globe to continue to provide a world-class service that meets their individual needs whilst remaining respectful to the structures of their specific region.”
This industry recognition consolidates VG’s leading global position as an Islamic finance partner of choice.
