World Islamic Finance Forum (WIFF) 2018 - "Expanding the Footprint of Islamic Finance: Innovation, Fintech & Regulation"

World Islamic Finance Forum (WIFF) 2018 themed 'Expanding Islamic Finance Footprint: Innovation, Fintech and Regulation' is being organized in collaboration with Lahore University Management Sciences (LUMS) and INCEIF (Malaysia).

After experiencing stunning double digit growth figures for more than two decades, Islamic finance industry has witnessed a slowdown in growth since 2015. According to S&P Islamic Finance Outlook 2017, Islamic banks' asset growth fell to around 7% in 2015 compared with 12% in 2014. The slowdown is forecast to persist in 2016 and 2017 with growth stabilizing at around 5%. Is it possible to put the industry back on fast growth track and continued globalization? What will define future direction of the Islamic finance industry?

WIFF 2018 aims to deliberate on the future outlook for the global Islamic finance industry in light of rapidly changing market dynamics, driven by technological developments and growing need for innovative products to cater to upcoming sectors. Against this backdrop, the role envisaged for various stakeholders, especially the regulator, to expand the outreach will be discussed by Islamic finance visionaries at the conference. The international conference will bring together Shari'ah scholars, renowned academicians, leading Islamic bankers, regulators as well as prominent personalities from global Islamic financial and infrastructure institutions to deliberate on game changers for the industry.

One of the key objectives of WIFF is knowledge enhancement through intellectual input from the academia.
