BNP Paribas – INCEIF Centre for Islamic Wealth Management Inaugural Public Lecture

The economic uncertainty over the last five years-the credit crunch, Eurozone crisis, and subsequent panic has cast a dark shadow on the global finance system and destroyed billions of dollars of wealth. Meanwhile, the Islamic Finance Industry has continued to grow at an exponential pace and is rapidly expanding beyond its core markets.


Thus, in this lecture, Iqbal Khan will present the current state of Islamic wealth management industry, including the latest global trends and key industry developments. Mr Khan will also outline what the future holds and what relevant stakeholders can do to boost the development of this growing industry.




The Centre for Islamic Wealth Management is a join initiative between BNP Paribas Malaysia Berhad and INCEIF dedicated to support the growth of the Islamic wealth management industry, asset management and capital markets with the key objectives of furthering education and research, industry innovation, and policy development.


To facilitate the planned objectives, the Centre will undertake applied research, and conduct workshops, conferences, roundtable discussions and public lectures in the areas of Islamic wealth management that covers aspects of wealth generation, accumulation, protection, purification and distribution.


The Centre aims to be a catalyst of innovation in the nascent area of Islamic wealth management by enhancing the knowledge and know-how of practitioners, Shariah scholars, students, investors and the public. It will also undertake applied research in specialized Islamic wealth management areas to provide solutions to issues in the global Islamic wealth management industry, thus further enhancing Malaysia’s position as a regional and international hub for Islamic finance.
