The IFKC is active on a number of levels in its aim to set the standards of thought leadership in Islamic Finance, including:

  • Compiling a library of reference books, standards and industry report
  • Issuing IKFC research and reports to industry stakeholders
  • Holding IFKC seminars and workshops to update professionals on industry issues
  • Conducting surveys of Islamic Finance leaders
  • Sharing webcasts featuring discussions with experts and policy-makers
  • Publishing e-magazine to share thought leadership with clients and markets
