This session explores why “taking security” is required in a financing transaction, as well as the broad types of security packages that are commonly used, perfection issues, and a general overview of documentation issues. It also includes tips on
transaction management, inclusive of scenarios involving conditions precedent or conditions subsequent.

This series is part of the series on “Traditional and Islamic Banking & Finance: Practical Perspectives” that covers high-level principles as generally applied in common law jurisdictions, and includes some civil law comparisons. Participants will develop an understanding of the broad principles on banking and finance laws, and adopt an Islamic banking and finance perspective. The series starts at a basic level, and will take participants through key practical aspects of the various banking and finance transactions.


Azlin Ahmad advises on banking and finance matters, with a focus on Islamic financing. With a background in conventional banking and finance, Azlin specialises in the field of Shariah-compliant banking and financing. She has extensive experience in both conventional and Islamic financing transactions, handling a variety of matters for retail and corporate clients, and representing both the borrowers and financial institutions.

Originally from Kuala Lumpur, Azlin practised in Kuala Lumpur for a number of years before relocating to the United Arab Emirates (“UAE”), where she spent over a decade working primarily on Islamic financing matters.

She handles bilateral and syndicated financing, including project financing and private debt securities, as well as Islamic
trust certificates (sukuk). Azlin is also highly experienced in structuring and drafting corporate and retail Islamic products for banks and financial institutions, and the documentation for such products has been widely adopted in the UAE and, prior to that, in Malaysia and Singapore. She has also assisted clients in their corporate debt restructuring exercises as well as acted as local counsel for numerous cross-border transactions that require advice from a UAE perspective. She was seconded to one of the local banks in the UAE, to assist in the setting up of its new legal department, which has given her a greater insight into clients’ commercial and operational requirements.

Azlin is qualified as a barrister in England and Wales, and has been admitted as an advocate and solicitor of the High Court of Malaya.
