Islamic Retail Banking: Critical Analysis

Islamic Retail Banking: Critical Analysis
Part of the 8-Month Certified Islamic Finance Programme

About the Course:

The 2007-2008 financial crisis created considerable scepticism about the efficiency of the banking sector in general. However, Islamic banking, seen as a viable option, was unaffected by the contagion effect of the crisis. Rather, Islamic banking has been growing in recent years.

This one-day course, among other things, will explore:

–       The nature of Islamic banking and how it differs from and competes with conventional banks.

–       The role of banks as financial intermediaries and how Islamic banks can offer a more robust system if practiced correctly.

–       Controversial fiqhi issues and products

–       Insight into the Islamic moral economy.

Sunday 14th May 2017
10.30am – 5.30pm
London Muslim Centre
