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.
