One of the top five leaders globally for Islamic economy development, Kuwait is a force to be reckoned with. The Arab state’s Shariah finance influence is anchored in robust fundamentals: proactive regulators putting in place a holistic legal architecture through various reforms and measures. Such efforts have rewarded the State handsomely: today, Kuwait is home to a thriving Islamic banking market, a vibrant capital market and promising Takaful insurance segment.

And Kuwait is showing no signs of slowing down. In 2020, the government voted in favor to establish a Higher Committee of Shariah Supervision at the Central Bank of Kuwait to boost governance, standardization, and progress. Increasingly more corporates are embracing the Shariah finance proposition, and along with Islamic financial institutions, are actively playing their part to grow the market.

Against this backdrop, IFN is excited to host the 8th IFN Kuwait Forum. Gathering a high-level of the industry’s leading experts, the Forum will be a platform of intellectual and pragmatic discussions on the future of Islamic finance in Kuwait, and how the Gulf country can maximize the industry’s potential to meet its Kuwait Vision 2035.
