Thomson Reuters Islamic Finance Gateway

Thomson Reuters Islamic Finance Gateway (IFG) covers all information and transaction requirements, from treasury and asset management to sharia advisory and legal counsel, all provided through dedicated communication, knowledge and transaction systems. This allows the sharing of content and transactions with counterparties in addition to displaying prices and covering recent trends, coverage and analysis.
The Islamic Finance Gateway offering contains three major components:

  • Islamic Finance Gateway Community: Born out of market demand, IFG Community was recently launched in October 2012. It provides two major spaces for industry professionals to gather, interact, and engage in meaningful and collaborative development – 1) an online platform connecting the global Islamic finance community to each other and to reliable and up to date multi-sourced Islamic finance news, insider information and latest markets movements, and 2) face-to-face events such as forums and roundtable sessions. IFG Community aims to be ‘the forum’ for actionable outcomes that will advance the whole industry.
  • Islamic Finance Gateway Research: Daily and Weekly IFG Briefings will be an indispensable part of the industry professional’s preparation for the day and week ahead. IFG Briefings provide key news, market movements, coverage of all relevant Islamic asset classes, and much more. These are pulled together from the most relevant Islamic finance news and analyses, and presented in a digestible format.

Islamic Finance Gateway Research Reports will give a 360° view of Islamic finance by country, region, asset class and credit. ‘Credit Reports’ analyze the credit worthiness of unrated financial institutions to provide users with an up to date review of counterparties they intend to transact with. ‘Asset Class Reports’ review opportunities and issues with particular asset classes of interest to Islamic finance investors, and ‘Country Reports’ cover all aspects of Islamic finance in a given country, including: regulatory framework, market fundamentals, legal issues and customer and corporate preferences collated through surveys. 

  • Islamic Finance Gateway Model: Accessible through Thomson Reuters Eikon platform, IFG Model addresses the complete Islamic finance workflow. It is the sole platform market professionals need to access ‘trading-ready’, comprehensive, trusted multi-asset class information on a wide range of Islamic finance instruments such as sukuk, Islamic leveraged loans, funds, Islamic money market, Takaful and currencies, alongside embedded real-time news stories from Reuters, and correlation analytics for Islamic versus conventional market views. The IFG Model improves transparency through lower information search costs and provides greater global connectivity and insight into the industry’s opportunities.
