This series of Islamic finance insights discusses social infrastructure trends and the value proposition of an alternative Sharia’- complaint funding model, which resembles sustainable finance, shares guidelines of responsible investment and sound governance practices.
- Nyra Mahmood, Managing Director, SSHC Limited, looks at the governance of human capital and prescribes the steps to nurture human capital and talent in Islamic finance through investing in people.
- Nurturing Islamic finance talent means to invest in supporting people, in training, engagement and creating a culture which fosters skills, creativity, inclusion and innovation.
The study emphasizes and reflects on the collective views of an industry forum organized by Deloitte Middle East and supported by Deloitte UK, held last November in London. The event was generously hosted by the Chartered Institute of Securities and Investment (CISI) and supported by the Islamic Research and Training Institute (IRTI).
The whitepaper examines and defines the key enablers and influencers of building an effective Islamic finance investment structure as a source of social infrastructure financing. It also analyses the impact of this model in light of regulatory and, market practice and governance requirements.
