The webinar aims to delve into the core principles of Islamic finance, also known as Ethical Finance or Participatory Finance in various jurisdictions. Our discussion will cover the fundamental principles of Shariah law that govern Islamic finance and will highlight the contrasts with conventional finance.

Key Discussion Points:

  • Interest or trade
  • Asset-based structure
