With the UN Secretary General’s ‘Decade of Action’ on the SDGs now underway, this webinar will consider approaches to leverage the stability and availability of Islamic finance to achieve more. The Islamic finance sector is booming. From a market of just US$200 billion in 2003, the sector is expected to grow to over US$4 trillion in assets by 2030. Much of these funds originate in the majority Islamic countries in the Arab region, yet the investments are global in scope and impact.

As Islamic finance scales up through the next decade across regions, this unique webinar will assess opportunities to develop new ESG and SDG-aligned Islamic finance products across asset classes. Join us to hear from experts on Islamic finance and ESG investing across markets.
