CIMB Roundtable: Islamic Finance for CFOs

In conjunction with the IFN Asia Forum 2014, Islamic Finance news held the first in a new series of Islamic finance-focused Roundtable discussions, sponsored by CIMB Islamic. 

A group of leading industry experts gathered together in a closed-door session to discuss the first in a series of broad yet crucial concepts designed to promote inclusion and participation in the wider industry. ‘Islamic Finance for CFOs’ aimed to create a roadmap for encouraging more corporates to tap the Islamic markets by identifying the key barriers, answering the key questions, addressing the primary concerns and suggesting the best methods for inclusion and awareness-building. 

Islamic Finance news was delighted to bring together Badlisyah Abdul Ghani, Wasim Akhtar Saifi, Mohd Radzuan Tajuddin, Nicholas Edmondes, Khalid Howladar and Rafiza Ghazali in an illustrious debate representing the leaders across all fields of Islamic finance. The result was a fascinating and wide-ranging debate that covered every crucial concern and is an invaluable read for anyone seeking to encourage inclusion in the Islamic capital markets.
