Islamic finance innovation day focus on ESG

The fourth edition of the annual Islamic Finance Innovation Day is set to take place on May 30 under the patronage of the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB).

The forum, which is founded and organised by FinMark Communications, will focus on ‘Embedding ESG into Islamic Finance – Opportunities for Innovation and Growth’. It will be held at the Gulf Hotel Bahrain Convention and Spa, and expects to attract more than 300 regional and international leaders in Islamic banking, finance and insurance, sustainability, ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) and technology to engage in high-level discussions.

Interactive sessions that have been designed by the forum’s advisory committee of industry experts will encourage knowledge sharing and exchange on how institutions and businesses in the industry can leverage the principles of ESG and the power of financial technology to accelerate further industry advancement, drive innovation and achieve long-term sustainable growth.

The advisory committee is headed by BisB chief executive Yaser Alsharifi and consists of senior representatives from the CBB, RFI Foundation, Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance, Al Baraka Group, Aion Digital and Bahrain Chamber.

The forum will feature a keynote address and fireside chat with industry leaders as well as two panel sessions themed ‘Going Beyond Compliance – ESG as a Driver for Innovation and Sustainable Growth’ and ‘The Essential Role of Fintechs in Accelerating ESG Adoption’.
