Cryptocurrency, Forex & Shares


About the Course:

A one day exclusive with two leading Shari’a and Islamic Finance scholars, exploring both the conventional and Islamic aspects of three controversial channels of investment — Cryptocurrencies, Forex and analysing the filtering criteria for investment in shares.

Could Cryptocurrency be considered a commodity or currency in it’s present unregulated form? Investment in shares are often subjected to screening issues that require specific discussions due to the various Islamic indices available on the market (and the legal nature of shares). Forex has its own volatility and exposure to risks, yet is an important market to explore.
