Name:[EVE00282] 9th IFSB-INCEIF Executive Forum: Promoting Sound and Effective Shari'ah Governance Practices

The IFSB-INCEIF Executive Forum aims to provide a platform for global leaders in Islamic finance to discuss selected emerging issues in the Islamic financial services industry. The Executive Forum places emphasis on issues related to supervision and prudential regulation, both at national and international levels, harnessing from the experiences of a distinguished pool of global experts, academics and practitioners. More information on the theme and sessions will be uploaded in due course.

This 9th edition of the IFSB-INCEIF Executive Forum addresses the governance perspectives of institutions offering Islamic financial services (IIFS). Without a shadow of doubt, Sharī’ah governance plays a major role in charting the strategic direction of institutions be it when opportunities are abound or in the current environment where caution seems to be the prevailing theme.

The theme of this Executive Forum, Promoting Sound and Effective Sharī’ah Governance Practices, aims to address this strategic imperative by bringing together experienced practitioners, banking supervisors, and thought leaders of the Islamic financial services industry to participate in active discussions knowledge-sharing sessions. Participants are expected to have in depth discussions on a wide array of issues related to Sharī’ah governance, the growing demands of stakeholders for robust governance framework after global financial crisis and how Sharī’ah governance can meet the expectations of various stakeholders.

The best global practices of corporate and Sharī’ah governance will be presented, with suggestions for incorporation within organisations. This Executive Forum will also spotlight banking supervisors in ensuring that robust governance structures are in place. The Executive Forum is expected to shed light on the efforts towards promoting and enhancing the current corporate and Sharī’ah governance practices, to support the growth of the Islamic financial services industry.

The Executive Forum is a paying event. Special rates are offered to all member of the IFSB.
