Cristian Giacomini, modefinance international CEO, said: “modefinance’s proprietary solution Tigran Risk Platform has already brought an overall 65% reduction in assessment times and costs to its users. We are delighted to welcome Mudaraba in this deal because of a shared group of values -transparency, process automation and digitalization- towards the digital transformation of the Middle-East business ecosystem. With our technologies made accessible, Mudaraba’s clients will be offered a more transparent and automated process of credit risk assessment and management, and analysts will be provided with a far more accurate picture of the entire financial situation of the subject under analysis.”

Ehab Al Dabbagh, Mudaraba co-founder, adds: “Our cooperation & partnership with mode finance Tigran Risk platform was instrumental in the success to offer digital innovative financing solutions to SMEs and investors in the debt capital market.”  

Mudaraba Financial Company got its name after an Islamic finance technique (mudarabah) in which an investor (rab al maal) and a borrower (mudareb) establish a profit-sharing partnership to undertake an investment activity. Under this structure, the rab al maal provides the funds and the mudareb the managerial know-how to manage the investment. The mudareb invests the funds on a Sharia compliant basis (according to which it is prohibited the use of interest rates), he or she earns a fee that is deducted from any profits for managing the funds or business and the parties share the profits according to a pre-agreed ratio.
