Al Mustashar Islamic Bank, a newly established bank in Iraq, has started operating on the ICS Financial Systems (ICSFS)-provided Islamic banking software.
ICSFS completed the rollout of its ICS BANKS ISLAMIC solution in three months.
The ICS BANKS ISLAMIC is a modular fully integrated solution developed in accordance with the norms of Accounting and Auditing Organisation for Islamic Financial Institutions (AAOIFI).
Al Mustashar Islamic Bank will implement ICS BANKS ISLAMIC Core Banking System, Credit Facilities & Risk Groups, Time Deposit, Remittances and Trade Finance and other Islamic banking services.
