Islamic finance plays a growing role in worldwide commerce, development and consumer access to finance. Each year reveals new questions and challenges for leading practitioners in the field and for the academics who study and teach on the principles and mechanisms of Islamic finance.

This summer review is not a traditional retreat for academic teaching. It is an active platform for questioning, dialogue and discovery of current policy issues and solutions in Islamic finance.

  • Address a key topic for the practitioners of Islamic finance
  • Hear from leading scholars from the International Islamic University Malaysia’s Institute of Islamic Banking and Finance (IIiBF), the leading institute at the centre of teaching Malaysian and international bankers and financial practitioners, who will bring issues and policy solutions from what is recognised as one of the most developed and fastest growing Islamic finance markets in the world
  • Hear from leading practitioners from the UK, Europe and the Middle East on how Islamic finance is playing a role and finding models for participation in the full range of business, commerce, charity, property and ethical trading in world markets
