It is a new concept, but it is becoming widely accepted from the market participants, especially in the financial market. Alternative Finance was first introduced after the financial crisis of 2008. Apparently, the it was thought to be a choice for the problems that the financial crisis caused. Many studies were conducted about the Alternative Finance, showing interesting results about it. Nowadays, more and more countries are using it in parallel with conventional finance. A special part of Alternative Finance is the Islamic Banking.
