Description

ISLAMIC FINANCE – AN ETHICAL ALTERNATIVE

Between the 25th and 27th June 2018 the Ethical Finance Hub will be holding a series of one day masterclasses in Edinburgh. This practitioner-led and commercially-focused programme will explore Islamic finance, sustainable finance, UNSDGs and responsible investing.

The intensive practical one-day courses have been designed and will be delivered by the UKIFC, global leaders in Islamic Finance capacity building. The first course includes a comprehensive introduction to Islamic Finance, its ethical foundations, core structures, and creation of Islamic banking products. The second course will provide practical guidance in creating enabling regulatory frameworks, particularly within a secular context, before exploring the nuances of Shariah compliant asset management. The final course is focused on the legal, mechanics and trends within Islamic finance real estate transactions.

The flexible structure allows you to attend any of the courses on a standalone basis or they can be bundled with a discount available for registering as a 3 day course.
