Ismail Hussein: From a bank to Parliament

Retail investors will soon get to invest in Singapore’s first syariah-compliant real estate investment trust (Reit), the Sabana Reit – set to hold about $850 million of Singapore industrial properties. Maybank Singapore is offering smaller firms an Islamic commercial property loan that comes with one of the longest fixed interest rate terms here. The product, called Maybank Islamic Term Financing, will provide small- and medium-sized enterprises (SME) with financing for completed commercial and industrial properties, on a mid- to long-term basis. Maybank Singapore head of Islamic banking Ismail Hussein said the product had contributed significantly to Maybank’s Islamic SME financing portfolio.
