The business model of insha
The first Islamic fintech in Germany, which provides innovative banking and financial services in cooperation with solarisBank. In the medium term, all traditional banking services will be offered successively. The insha is committed to the principles of Islamic banking, which i.a. does not allow any business of the arms industry, alcohol or gambling and also prohibits interest and speculation. Therefore, financing is implemented via a trade structuring or participations. This, in turn, has the important economic consequence that the funds are forced to flow into the real sector. Thus, the investments made in this way are sustainable and offer greater security, since every cash flow is underpinned by a real estate.
