* Sukuk are investment certificates, which are an alternative way of attracting project financing. The investors’ return depends on the cash flow generated by the project or the asset underlying the sukuk. The sukuk market is a fast growing segment of the Islamic finance market. In 2019, the total market for outstanding sukuk exceeded $ 500 billion (IFSB, 2020).
Since 2019, the HSE-Skolkovo Institute for Law and Development has been implementing the Agrofinmost project aimed at creating legal and organizational mechanisms for direct cooperation with investors from the Middle East and Africa in order to increase the volume of Russian agricultural exports.
