Africa International Conference on Islamic Finance
2 days / 8 talks & discussions
13 speakers / 1 Conference
October 16 – 17
The formidable growth of Islamic finance has recently been bolstered by the global move towards ethical, socially responsible, sustainable and impactful solutions. Recent reports indicate that 1 in 5 dollars in the US is invested ethically and more than 60% of total investment in Europe is based on some form of ethical investment. Islamic finance tenets have been lauded for their ethical premise and it now seems that the world is considering the same trends.
This conference reviews the global move towards ethical finance in capital markets and considers the impact that this can have within the West African region in general and Nigeria in particular.
The alignment of the Islamic Capital Markets to UN Social Development goals will also be assessed and potential roadmaps that contribute to these goals will be discussed.
It is veritable that public perception of ethical finance often differs from the measurable impact on financial inclusion and living standards. Expert discussants will consider the divergence of perception from real impact and consider the role of awareness in bridging this gap.
In addition, innovation in capital market solutions will be analyzed and deliberations will consider the real value impact for stakeholders in medium to long-term. International specialists in the field will provide participants with global experience and meaningful direction to local development and enhancement.
Fintech (Financial Technology) solutions will also be considered, as they have caused significant disruption to the traditional finance sector. Join global leaders and subject matter experts in this rapidly developing sector that has the potential to create a significant impact of lives of the millions living in the West African region.
