What exactly is ethical finance? Is Islamic finance ethical? Is ethical finance Islamic? Islamic finance is routinely described as ethical. This reflects the fact that self-described 'ethical' finance is a large and growing sector of the market. It has a very positive image with which Islamicfinancial services seek to associate themselves. Yet the claim that 'Islamic' and 'ethical' are synonymous is rarely seriously examined, and nor is the claim that there exists a consistent and generally understood definition of 'ethical' practice. This book examines a wide range of financial institutions in the UK which fall broadly within theethical sector, considering the nature of their principles and practices, and how they relate to Islamic models and to Muslim communities.
Elaine Housby is an independent researcher and freelance writer with a special interest in religious thinking about economic matters. She obtained a PhD on the topic of Islamic finance in the UK and is the author of Islamic Financial Services in the United Kingdom, also published in the Edinburgh Guides to Islamic Finance series.
