IFSB INCEIF Executive Programme to Discuss Sustainable Finance through Islamic Capital Market

Date posted: 7 March 2022

7 March 2022, Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - The Islamic Financial Services Board (IFSB), and International Centre for Education in Islamic Finance (INCEIF) and its consulting subsidiary, ISRA International Consulting (IICSB), looks forward to jointly organise an Executive Programme Webinar on 16 March 2022.

Following the recently signed MoU between IFSB and INCEIF announced early this year, IFSB together with INCEIF announced their 15th Executive Programme titled ‘Integrating Islamic Finance in Sustainable Finance: The Role of Regulators and Market Players (Islamic Capital Market Sector). The Executive Programme intends to discuss and elaborate the roles of regulators and market players in supporting sustainable finance particularly through the Islamic capital market (i.e. Islamic green sukuk and social sukuk).
Transitioning to sustainable finance and economies including mitigating climate change are amongst major issues that are currently at the forefront of the global consciousness. In recent years, there has been an increase in the efforts to promote more sustainable finance development, both within the public and the private sectors, including through Islamic finance sectors. Islamic finance should have strategic contributions to take part in managing the impact of climate change and environmental, governance or social risks, while regulators have a bigger role to play in catalysing this.
The Executive Programme will be delivered by the following prominent speakers, each with impressive track record and experience in their respective field:
  • Vasuki Shastry – ESG, and Strategic Communications Advisor, discussing on The Roles of Islamic Capital Market (Programs, Instruments, Transactions) In Accelerating the Sustainable Finance 
  • Prof Dr Baharom Abdul Hamid of INCEIF, discussing on Integrating Islamic Social Finance Instrument for Sustainability Agenda
  • Prof Kabir Hassan – IFSB Consultant, discussing on Social Sukuk and its Roles in The Sustainable Finance
The Executive Programme is to be conducted exclusively for Sustainable Finance Stakeholders not only among IFSB Members and INCEIF/ISRA Consulting network. The programme will rely on interactive online discussions through the provision of direct engagement with the subject matter experts. 
The Executive Programme participation is free. Please contact Ms Natejah Ahmad ([email protected]) for further information and to register, visit https://www.ifsb.org/register_online.php?act=addnew&e_id=541
