How Islamic Finance Works
This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com Dubai's recent debt problems have brought attention to the growth of Islamic finance. A government-owned group of companies, Dubai World, has been seeking to restructure twenty-six billion dollars of debt. About six billion of it is in Islamic bonds, including a three and a half billion dollar bond set for repayment in December. The biggest difference between Western and Islamic finance involves beliefs about charging interest on borrowed money. In Islam, the basic idea is that you should not make money from money itself. Instead of interest, lenders charge fees. Ghiyath Nakshbendi at American University in Washington is an expert on Islamic financing. He says: "The bank will estimate its costs based on its fixed costs, variable costs, the cost of their employees, the rent and so on and so forth. And from that they estimate how much they are going to charge. But he points out that this system can make Islamic financing costly. The costs of the system are shared by the borrowers. The fewer the borrowers, the more each has to pay. In many cases, Islamic financing requires the lender and borrower to share profits and losses. Ghiyath Nakshbendi explains what that means with Islamic bonds, called sukuk. He says the bondholders are buying a share of a business or property. If business is good, then they could get back more than they expected. But if it fails, then there is no guarantee of repayment. Islamic bonds can be structured in different ways, but a major idea is shared profit and loss. Professor Nakshbendi says Islamic lending practices are also supposed to be socially responsible. In world banking, the total share of Islamic finance is less than one percent. But it is growing at a rate of fifteen to twenty percent a year. There is growing interest in Islamic banking in the West. London is becoming a center of Islamic finance. And France recently proposed changes in finance laws to protect Islamic bondholders. Estimates differ, but as much as one and a half trillion dollars may be managed under Islamic rules. In two thousand eight, the International Monetary Fund studied the financial security of Islamic banks. It found that their lack of complex products like futures and derivatives limits the ability to spread risk. And that's the VOA Special English Economics Report.

Is Islamic Finance A Solution?
Saqib Ul Islam, Urdu VOA News, Washington Last few years has brought enormous and unexpected changes in the International and American Financial practices. The Recession which started to make impact in 2007 is not over yet. Housing Mortgage sector is one of the most affected sectors due to this recession. In this difficult time Islamic Finance or Banking System has emerged as an alternative, which is going beyond conservative Muslim countries and into the financial system of the developed and developing countries. In America due to the debate over Sharia Law, Islamic banking and finance has also been under some criticism. George Town University and US Qatar Business Council held a forum on the development of Islamic Finance System. VOA's Saqib Ul Islam was there who talked to the participants and speakers.

Get experience of highly flexible online courses at Brentwood Open Learning College at your own schedules with no fixed study timings. http://www.bolc.co.uk Today Islamic banking has expanded to become a distinctive and fast growing sector of the international banking and capital markets. The key feature, or principle, that distinguishes Islamic banks from any other kind of bank is the rejection of interest-based financial transactions. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, many Western, Middle Eastern and Asian financial institutions recognise Islamic banking as an important new opportunity for growth and have adopted Islamic practices to serve this expanding market. Rejection of interest by Islam poses the question of what replaces the interest rate mechanism in an Islamic framework. Here PLS comes in, substituting profit-and-loss-sharing for interest as a method of resource allocation. Although a large number of different contracts feature in Islamic financing, certain types of transaction are central: • Trustee finance (mudaraba) • Equity participation (musharaka) • Mark-up methods Four key roles are performed in a financial system. It provides financial intermediation services, channelling funds from ultimate savers to ultimate borrowers. The system provides a wide range of other financial services not immediately related to financial intermediation. It creates a broad array of assets and liabilities, each of which have different characteristics. Central role of any financial system is the creation of incentives for an efficient allocation of resources within an economy. Apart from share capital, Islamic banks attract funds by issuing or selling the following instruments: • investment or PLS (profit-and-loss sharing) accounts • savings accounts • transaction accounts, or current accounts • quardhasan accounts • Borrowings Brentwood open learning college is one of the UK’s open learning colleges focused on delivering interactive and appealing distance learning courses.

How FinTech is Shaping the Future of Banking | Henri Arslanian | TEDxWanChai
While FinTech is revolutionizing the banking industry and giving millions of people access to financial services for the first time, new banking models are emerging with FinTech start-ups and tech firms potentially disrupting the status quo. But business schools and universities are not preparing future bankers for these changes, says FinTech thought leader Henri Arslanian. How can designers, programmers and creative thinkers help? Henri Arslanian started his career as a financial markets and funds lawyer in Canada and Hong Kong, after which he spent many years with UBS Investment Bank in Hong Kong. In recent years, he has been teaching graduate courses on Entrepreneurship in Finance at Hong Kong University as an Adjunct Associate Professor, and currently leads the first FinTech course in Asia. His latest book on Entrepreneurship in Finance will be published in late 2016 by Palgrave Macmillan. A member of the Milken Institute’s Young Leaders Circle, Henri is a regular keynote speaker globally on the topic of FinTech and hedge funds and currently sits on a number of finance, academic, civil society and FinTech related boards and advisory boards. Henri is fluent in English, French, Armenian, Spanish and conversational in Mandarin Chinese and has been awarded many academic and industry awards over the years, including the Governor General of Canada Gold Medal for Academic Excellence.

The future of Islamic finance in Australia: Talal Yassine
Islamic Finance has promised to be the 'next big thing' for over two decades. But despite growing in leaps and bounds in many countries it still represents only a small segment of any market and has only just arrived in Australia. Mr Talal Yassine OAM, ANU Honorary Professorial Fellow and Managing Director of Islamic finance company Crescent Wealth presents this seminar at ANU Crawford School of Public Policy. Crescent Wealth is a funds management company that invests in socially responsible assets based on Islamic investment principles. But what does Islamic finance actually mean? Can it be used as an antidote to some of the worst excesses of 'unfettered free market capitalism'? What does its application mean for politicians, policymakers and Australia in the region? Mr Yassine discusses the opportunities, strengths and the challenges of using the Islamic finance principles to conduct business, and how to potentially build an Australia and Asia Islamic finance hub. He looks at how Australia and Asia could follow in the footsteps of the west coast of the United States by becoming the 'home grown' centre of the world's best performing Islamic fund manager or the United Kingdom by being the home to more than 30 Islamic Banks. Talal Yassine is an experienced lawyer, banker and non-executive director. He currently serves on the Board of Australia Post, Sydney Ports, the Whitlam Institute and as Deputy Chairman of the Gulf Australia Business Council. He has also served on the Board of Macquarie University, as the Deputy Chairman of a government regulator, and as Chairman for Platinum Sound Pty Ltd. On Australia Day 2010, Mr Yassine was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for his service to business and to the community through a range of education, health and multicultural organisations.

Role of Islamic Finance in promoting MSME’s and financial inclusion
The development of micro, small and medium enterprises is of paramount importance to economic decision-makers in all developed and developing countries alike because of their pivotal role in promoting economic and social development. Despite serious attempts to develop the sector, it is often constrained by access to adequate finance. It is therefore necessary to look for other financing alternatives that are more suitable and accessible to MSMEs. Islamic finance has come of age and has the ability to adapt to the different requirements of MSMEs with the objective to link financial transactions to real economy and achieve justice between all parties. #IsDBAnnualMeeting #IsDBTN18 #IsDB43AM #ISDB #IsDBGroup
2016 AXA Pop Day | Fulya Apaydin | The 2008 financial Crisis and Islamic Banking in Southeast Asia
The intersection of comparative politics and development economics, with a particular emphasis on political economy. In particular, she focuses on how local actors in emerging economies respond to global pressures that impose greater economic uncertainties. In exploring these dynamics, she is especially concerned with the processes through which economic stakeholders (such as businessmen, consumer groups, labor unions and the politicians) negotiate a balanced sharing of socio-economic risks. The aim of this research is to test the influence of moral values on mitigating risk-taking at an institutional level (taking into account the influence of the social & political context on the outcomes). The case study consists in finding why within Islamic banks, constrained by religious codes & shaped by their national context, one can observe big variations in results and responses to market risk.

Job Options In Islamic Finance
http://www.ethicainstitute.com/Career_Options_In_Islamic_Banking_And_Finance.aspx We're going to try to keep the webinar to less than 90 minutes, we'll have an introductory session which will shortly be followed by the questions that we've received in advance by email and then live questions. So we'll begin right away, the webinar is "Career options in Islamic finance" and as most of you know, despite the global financial crisis, Islamic finance has remained quite resilient through much of the crisis. It has not been completely insulated because obviously even many Shariah-compliant transactions, however compliant they are, are still going to be affected by the markets around that industry. So despite that Islamic banks continue to thrive. There is expansion going on in a number of countries and over 500 Islamic banks, whether stand alone or subsidiaries are all over the world and central banks and countries from as far flung regions as Japan, Canada where we were recently, and Australia have stated their intention to expand with Islamic finance services. The industry is growing annually at a rate of over 20% which is actually a number that we hear a lot but what is more relevant is that in some Islamic finance industries that are relatively mature like, Malaysia, Pakistan, parts of the GCC, it is more stable and growing while in other places where it's just being introduced the rate of growth is much, much higher. The S&P believes that the potential for the market of Islamic financial services is close to $4 trillion and like I mentioned there is a very positive interest from Muslim and non-Muslim countries around the world with many of them starting with capital markets transactions from the get go and then moving on to retail and corporate style products as they progress. So it's good to see that regulatory, legislative and political changes in these countries are accommodating Islamic finance. According to AT Kearney over 30,000 new Islamic banking jobs will have to be filled in the Gulf alone. And there are actually bigger markets than the Gulf, obviously the UK, Europe, North America, these are huge markets where Islamic finance remains largely untapped. There has been progress in places like UK, Europe, but again, it's still the tip of the iceberg. One of the best signs that there is a critical mass of Islamic financial institutions and Islamic finance practitioners is AAOIFI. AAOIFI stands for the Accounting and Auditing Organization of Islamic Financial Institutions and it is the leading standard setting body in the industry. It is essentially an effort to bring the top scholars from around the world from various regions together several times a year to formulate standards for various products and it is widely held to be the leading standard setting body and they've put out a book called AAOIFI Shariah Standards, which I recommend to all of you to try to get a hold of.

Issues in Islamic Finance: Starting Up an Islamic Financial Institution in China
The growth potential of Islamic finance in China is huge given the country’s 1.3 billion population, but developments of Islamic finance institutions in the country is still stunted due to lack of access to Shari’ah-compliant liquidity. Perceived by many in China as being for Muslims only, Islamic finance has struggled to take off. Islamic finance must be open to and adopted by non-Muslims as well, so that it can gain a larger foothold in the country.
