Islamic Finance and Social Purpose
The Islamic Finance Council UK (UKIFC) and the International Shari’ah Research Academy for Islamic Finance (ISRA), in association with Clifford Chance invite you to our annual conference exploring the social impact of the current Islamic Finance industry and the opportunity the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the UN Principles of Responsible Banking presents.

Our annual event has become the premier London conference in Islamic Finance convening a multi-stakeholder global audience interested in open, frank and challenging discussions on core issues framing the industry’s purpose and informing future direction. Nothing is off the table at the Reimagining Islamic Finance London Summit.
