An investment advisor is a person or a company that provides investment advice to individuals or companies about investing in securities and other investment products. Investment advisors need a license from the CMDA to provide the service. Each investment advisory firm needs to have an investment advisor and each investment fund needs to have an investment advisor allocated to that fund, according to the CMDA regulations.

Islamic Financing is financing activities that must comply with Shariah and also refers to investments which are permissible under shariah. The main difference between conventional financing and islamic financing is that some basic concepts in conventional financing such as interest, speculations, investing in prohibited activities, uncertainties and risk are not allowed in Islamic Financing and investing.

The main types of financing arrangements under islamic financing are Mudarabah (Profit-and-loss sharing partnership), Musharakah (Profit-and-loss sharing Joint Venture) and Ijarah (leasing). The major investment vehicles used are Equities and Fixed Income Securities. Sukuks in Islamic Financing are the equivalent of Bonds in conventional financing, however it represents a partial ownership in an asset, not a debt obligation.
