Chelles: opening of the first Islamic finance agency

The first agency dedicated to Islamic finance is coming to Chelles, NorrAssur announced on Friday. The startup, up until recently only active online, specializes in Islamic finance and respects Islamic law, shariah, and most notably prohibits speculation and interest or investments considered taboo in society (tobacco, alcohol, arms…)

For the moment it offers only investment and insurance. It will open on Pierre Mendes-France Boulevard and will include a prayer room. NoorAssur states it is committed to opening twenty agencies by 2016.
