Kuveyt Turk plans to open its first branch, following the principles of sharia law, in Frankfurt-am-Main in cooperation with Ernst & Young auditing company and Norton Rose law firm.
The other branches of the bank will be opened in German cities with large Muslim communities, particularly in Berlin. As for other European countries, such banks are already providing their services in Britain, the paper said.
Analysts doubt if such banking services will become popular in Germany where the Muslim community does not exceed five percent or 4.1 million people.
