Islamic Innovation  Day Forum series

Manama A new Islamic finance forum entitled “Islamic Finance Innovation Day” is set to take place in Bahrain on 7 December 2017. 

The event is being held with the strategic partnership of the Bahrain Economic Development Board (EDB) and support from other industry partners including the Responsible Finance and Investment Foundation (RFI), a global non-profit organisation focused on building awareness, promoting research and encouraging convergence in responsible finance.  

The inaugural forum will focus on Islamic Fintech and will be comprised of two moderated roundtables: “Islamic Fintech – Adopting an Innovation Agenda” and “Human Capital Development: Supporting Sustain Growth and Fintech Innovation.” 

“We are pleased to support this forum series focusing on innovation in Islamic Finance and in, particular, the fast-developing Fintech industry, which offers Islamic financial institutions exciting new avenues for growth,” said David Parker, Executive Director, Financial Services at EDB.

The series has been timed to coincide with several Islamic finance events taking place in the Kingdom, which also aim to highlight important current issues and trends within the industry. Key among these is the annual World Islamic Banking Conference (WIBC) taking place in Bahrain 3-6 December 2017, which each year attracts hundreds of regional and international Islamic finance industry heavyweights.
