Name:[EVE00283] 10th IFSB-INCEIF Executive Forum: Financial Inclusion and Islamic Finance - Aligning Objectives and Methodologies

This is the 10th edition of the IFSB-INCEIF Executive Forum on Islamic Finance Series. 

The IFSB-INCEIF Executive Forum aims to provide a platform for global leaders in Islamic finance to discuss selected emerging issues in the Islamic financial services industry. The Executive Forum places emphasis on issues related to supervision and prudential regulation, both at national and international levels, harnessing from the experiences of a distinguished pool of global experts, academicsand practitioners. More information on the theme and sessions will be uploaded in due course. 

The theme of the 10th IFSB-INCEIF Executive Forum “Financial Inclusion and Islamic Finance: Aligning objectives and methodologies” aims to clarify and align the objectives and benefits of financial inclusion with that of Maqasid Al-Shariah and emphasise the importance of supervisory and regulatory initiatives in supporting the growth of financial inclusion.

Financial inclusion and shared prosperity have been recognised as key components of the global agenda contributing to stability. However, initiatives related to financial inclusion in the Islamic finance context have been somewhat subdued. At the same time, there are promising initiatives in Islamic microfinance, SMEs development and Microtakāful, all of which have significant potential to contribute to financial inclusion. 

The Executive Forum will bring together the advocators of financial inclusion from among experienced practitioners, supervisors and thought leaders as well as Islamic finance industry players. Participants will be exposed to discussions on new methodologies and techniques in the field of financial inclusion, as well as the role of the Regulatory and Supervisory Authorities in ensuring market integrity, financial stability and consumer protection from the financial inclusion perspective. The Panel Session, a key feature of this Executive Forum, will discuss the key issues and challenges in penetrating unbanked Muslims populations, and the availability of infrastructures pivotal in financial inclusion development, as well as policy recommendations from supervisors and market practitioners from the banking, takāful and SME sectors.

The Executive Forum is a paying event. Special rates are offered to all member of the IFSB.
