2nd Islamic Finance, Banking & Business Ethics Global Conference 2017

INTRODUCTION

The Islamic finance sector has experienced exponential growth in the last few decades. Islamic banking institutions are now established in over 50 countries and account for more than 15% of the financial landscape in most of these countries. The success of the Islamic financial industry is all the more evident since it has come during a period when the conventional financial industry was experiencing a crisis. From the Olympic village in London to Burj Khalifa in Dubai, shariah-compliant investments are making inroads on a global scale. The global Islamic financial assets stand at USD2 trillion with Pakistan and Malaysia at the forefront. With nearly one-fifth of the banking sector in the two countries reliant on the Islamic financial services with double digit annual growth, he potential of Islamic financial services is huge.
