Islamic finance facing new challenges
Senior executives from the global Islamic finance industry are gathering in the United Arab Emirates to debate the important challenges facing the world’s fastest-growing financial sector.
The International Islamic Finance Forum, which opens in Dubai February 23, is organized by the Institute for International Research (IIR) in association with Dow Jones Indexes, the Saudi Economic and Development Company (SEDCO) and iHilal Financial Services
The twice-a-year Forum has been dubbed “the Islamic finance equivalent of the Davos World Economic Forum.” Debates center on the challenges faced by a financial sector worth $230 billion that is predicted to maintain double digit annual growth rates for the next 15 to 20 years. — (menareport.com)
