Thematic Workshop Showreel Launched

On 21 February 2018, a large London gathering of the Islamic finance and ethical finance communities took place. Over 140 bankers, financiers, academics and scholars considered the trend of positioning Islamic finance within the broader umbrella of ethical finance. Following Shariah principles, it is argued Islamic finance is seen to be intrinsically interwoven with ethical finance values and strategies. However, this view is not shared across the whole of the financial services industry and the Muslim community.

The event was organised by the Islamic Finance Council UK (UKIFC) and the International Shari’ah Research Academy for Islamic Finance (ISRA) and hosted by the Islamic finance practice of global law firm K&L Gates.

Our event showreel captures the spirit of what was a highly successful event.
