The region’s largest Islamic finance gathering. An annual ‘must attend’ business event for Islamic finance professionals from around the world, IFN Asia is a confluence of the brightest and most influential personalities of the industry, bringing quality and relevant discussions to the stage and invaluable networking opportunities.

Asia is recognised by the world as the bastion of Islamic finance housing, the world’s most populous Muslim nation and largest Islamic finance market. With the support of regulators and multilateral Islamic finance organisations, the 17th IFN Asia Forum will take place at the heart of Islamic finance in the region, Kuala Lumpur.

As the center of Islamic capital-raising activities by volume and its diversity of instruments and issuers, the Forum will embody themes exploring Shariah financing through the banking and capital markets from both the perspectives of issuers and facilitators.

William Dale, Regional Vice President for Mambu APAC will be joining this panel to discuss with other industry experts on some of the following points:

  • What is working, what is viable, and what is not? What does this mean for the evolution of Islamic financial services in Southeast Asia?
  • With five neo-banking licenses in Malaysia, how will the development, provision and distribution of digital Islamic financial services evolve in the near-term?
  • What technology is available to help Islamic financial institutions drive scale, integrity, efficiency and ultimately profitability?
