Financing Ethos: The socially and economically transformative role of Islamic finance

2nd July 2014
  • ResPublica

ResPublica and the APPG for Islamic Finance & Diversity in Financial Markets are holding a private roundtable to discuss the socially and economically transformative role of Islamic finance

Bound by tradition and ethics, Islamic finance follows a moral code that could transform our financial sector and restore ethos and values to British banking. Already prominent in the UK, and with a projected global market worth of $2 trillion in assets by the end of 2014, it is not only ethical, but profitable. In order to harness the opportunities presented by Islamic finance, and to cater for the UK’s young and growing Muslim community, the economic and social benefits of Islamic Finance need to make their mark in the mainstream political debate.

With opening remarks from Lord Sheikh, Co-Chair of the APPG for Islamic Finance & Diversity in Markets, the session will explore how Islamic finance could be better utilised in the UK, ask what role it can play in transforming our communities, combat prejudice against Islam, and discuss how this potential can be realised.
