Islamic what?

In a nutshell, Islamic finance refers to the means by which corporations in the Muslim world, including banks and other lending institutions, raise capital in accordance to Sharia, or Islamic law. The UK - and London in particular - has already become a centre for Islamic finance.


More than a dozen banks deliver Islamic finance transactions. There is hardly a large professional services firm that does not have specialist Islamic finance teams. It has helped transform London's skyline by financing in whole or in part developments such as The Shard, Chelsea Barracks, Harrods and the Olympic Village.


We, Roya and Katharine, think this is an exciting topic, which has not received enough attention yet. Therefore we have developed a 60 minutes brown-bag including a Q&A session, which will give you just the right amount of information to cover the basics of Islamic Finance: how it works, why it is up and coming and relevant to us as an organization. We aim to raise awareness and start building a network to form and embrace future opportunities in this field.
