Citi unveils Murabaha Trade, Working Capital Financing solution

LONDON, September 27, 2022

Citi has announced the launch of its Murabaha Trade and Working Capital Financing solution for corporate clients in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
In line with Shari’a principles, this solution provides financing that supports the general day to day commercial and international trade activities of corporate clients by offering import and export (pre-shipment and post-shipment) advances. This solution was developed to enhance liquidity and provide an alternative source of Shari’a financing.
This launch builds on Citi’s already established Murabaha Trade Advance offered to financial institution clients and represents the next step in expanding Citi’s Islamic Trade and Working Capital solutions.
