star this property answer text <p>Islamic finance is the one of the world’s fastest growing sectors - according to estimates from TheCityUK, at the current rate of growth, the market will exceed US$2 trillion in assets by the end of this year.[1] The Government has not estimated the benefits to UK companies of the expansion of the UK’s Islamic finance market, although we recognise the significant opportunity it represents UK firms.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Government is committed to ensuring that the UK remains the global partner and destination of choice for Islamic finance. In June this year the Government was the first western country to issue a sovereign sukuk, an Islamic bond, worth £200 million. This cemented the UK’s position as the western hub for Islamic finance and demonstrates that the UK has created a level playing field which puts Islamic finance on par with conventional forms of finance.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The UK has a high concentration of Islamic finance and related professional services firms: 6 full Islamic banks, over 20 banks offering Islamic finance products and services, and over 25 UK law firms have Islamic finance units. As the Government continues its efforts to develop the UK’s Islamic finance market, we expect further opportunities and benefits to arise for UK companies although these have not been estimated.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The 4<sup>th</sup> EU Anti-Money Laundering Directive transposes the global standards on anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism finance set by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) in 2012. These standards further embed the risk-based approach, which allow obliged entities, including companies, to adopt anti-money laundering checks which are best suited to the risk they face in their everyday business. This allows for more proportionate and balanced anti-money laundering regimes across the EU including in the UK.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Directive is currently in its last stage of negotiations. The UK government is committed to publishing an impact assessment and to consulting on the implementation of the Directive before transposing its new requirements into UK legislation, in line with better regulation principles. This timing is necessary to ensure that any Impact Assessment accurately reflects any changes to the draft legislation agreed in negotiations.</p><p> </p>
