Our Conference

In recent years there has been a trend towards positioning Turkey as the leader of halal trade and economy. 

Many suggest that the halal economy and participation finance are inherently linked with ethical values and strategies; however, others suggest that these are positively differentiated from the wider ethical finance universe. A final school challenges the notion of these being ethical at all by questioning the creation of synthetic products that do not address economic inequality, gender balance and climate change.

We will seek to address these issues and challenges through thoughtful and responsible dialogue.

Our Masterclasses

The availability of participation banking products and financing techniques is steadily increasingly globally, as regulators continue to enact changes in legislation and policy to create a level playing field, using participation finance as a tool to attract foreign direct investment, finance large-scale infrastructure projects and meet socio-economic targets.

Our masterclasses are designed, developed and delivered by leading practitioners and industry experts, providing practical insights and case studies. Each session has been specially formulated to deepen understanding of how participation principles can be applied across a number of disciplines.
