Types of Sukuk

One of the topics that I hardly write about are Sukuk (islamic Bonds). Unfortunately, I am not greatly involved in many Sukuk deals, either by design or exposure. In my line of work, I get to see the legal documents, but somewhat uninvolved when it comes to actual structuring. There are many, many experts in the field so I will not even attempt to pretend what they do is easy.


But I did come across this interesting presentation on the types of Sukuk. A presentation I saw on Linkedin by Camille Paldi on the Types of Sukuk provides an excellent introduction to the subject. With her permission, I attached herewith the presentation on Sukuk in pdf for your easy download.

Also, I notice Camille Paldi writes (via her presentation slides) a massive amount of literature on Islamic Banking, which is a trove of information for someone who seeks it. Do have a read on her other presentations as well.

Happy reading.

  1. Assalamualaikum,
    Dear Amir,
    Do you have any write up or any information/articles on reclassifying of deposit from wadiah to mudharabah.

    Thank you.



    • Salam Faridah,

      I am not aware of the reclassifying from Wadiah to Mudharabah. Instead it should be reclassification from Mudharabah into Wadiah, following the instructions after IFSA 2013. IFSA defined Mudharabah as Investments; BNM issued Investment Accounts therefore Banks have options to reclassify Mudharabah CASA into either Mudharabah Investments or Wadiah CASA.

      My earlier write up for the effort of reclassification Mudharabah Deposits into Investment Accounts as attached https://islamicbankers.me/2015/06/30/the-investment-account/

      Hope that helps
