Government securities are traded only to a small degree, and those instruments which are marketed often carry riba. Equity markets are also underdeveloped, though from the point of view of Islamic financial institutions, such investments are of potentially greater interest than conventional government securities. The shares of specifically Islamic companies are quoted on the Cairo, Amman and Kuwait stock markets, and many of the other shares on offer could be considered as legitimates Islamic investments. The Islamic Financial Market includes banking, capital markets, and insurance that comply with shari’a principles. Islamic finance is structured to avoid the following, which are all prohibited under shari'a: riba, maisir, and gharar.

For many businesses, particularly in the early stages before profit become predictable, traditional sources of capital such as banks and credit unions are simply unavailable. For those businesses, venture capital may be the best hope to raise the money needed to succeed. Venture capital is money provided by professionals who invest alongside management in young, rapidly growing companies that have the potential to develop into significant economic contributors.
