MSF regulations amended

To promote Islamic finance products in the capital market, the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) has introduced amendments in the Murabaha Share Financing (MSF) Regulations.

MSF is a Sharia-compliant leveraged product, a viable alternate avenue for the capital market investors who prefer Islamic mode of financing.

The product was initially launched in September 2019 with the guidance of renowned practicing Sharia scholars.

However, through recent amendments, a system-based initiation and affirmation process has been introduced for Murabaha Sale Transaction.
