Responsible Finance & Investment Summit (RFI Summit 2017) - Zurich

The Responsible Finance & Investment Summit (RFI Summit) is an initiative of the RFI Foundation and Swiss Arab Network to build awareness of shared values that can bring socially responsible investing (SRI), environmental, social and governance (ESG) and Islamic finance together to increase their positive impact.

This Responsible Finance & Investment Summit brings together key stakeholders within responsible finance to build connections to new growth opportunities and more measurable impact.

The RFI Summit will play a vital role in connecting representatives from across the responsible finance industry to build on the growing cooperation between SRI, ESG and Islamic finance.

Angel Investment as a New Investment Instrument for Islamic Finance

By the end of 2018, Islamic finance assets will reach $2.7 trillion, which is 2% of global finance assets.

Islamic banks, in addition to local and international players of capital markets, are set to benefit from this growth sector. But when you examine Islamic investment assets and portfolios, early stage investments are almost non-existent.

Angel investment, on the other hand, is booming globally and is expected to reach a $50 billion market size by 2020.

What is interesting is that angel investment is 100% compatible with Islamic investment principles and, perhaps surprisingly, the Islamic finance ecosystem is not yet familiar with angel investment.,

How can we create an awareness of angel investment in Islamic finance ecosystem?

The role of Islamic finance in healing the planet

Duty of Care

On the second question relating to the role that Islamic finance, Islamic social finance and the Islamic economy can play in enhancing the outcome? The answer is simple.

That is our job if we are truly following the objectives of the Maqasid Al Shariah. As stewards of the planet with a duty of care for all humanity and all life, it is our responsibility as Muslims to set the example and demonstrate our leadership in this area.

Collaboration will be a key component and there is no reason why the modus operandi that I have described in the previous paragraph could not be achieved by more effectively mobilising the assets that we have in the Islamic social economy — such as zakat, sadaqah and waqaf — to be used for relief of poverty, sustainable growth and healing the planet.

That would be a great start, which would demonstrate the real value of Islamic social finance to the whole community.

All in all, we need to be in a position to pass the world on in a better shape to the next generation. If we focus, organise, follow the path of the Maqasid and thereby help both create awareness and change mindsets, then all of this is achievable. Indeed, it has to be achieved as the burning platform is already there and urgent attention is required!...

UNDP: Islamic Finance for Social Good

Sustainable development in Islamic social finance

The term 'Islamic Social Finance' refers to modes of finance that are rooted in Islamic ethics and intended for social benefit. These include Zakat (almsgiving), Waqf (endowments), Sadaqa (charity) as well as Qard Hasan (interest-free loans).

When one defines 'Islamic finance', it is vitally important that Islamic social finance be included. Doing so achieves three crucial benefits. First, it expands the sector’s scale: the Islamic Development Bank Group (IsDB) estimates the potential of Zakat alone to be as much as US$1 trillion per year. The value of endowment assets — which include countless landmarks such as the Taj Mahal — likely far exceeds the US$2.5 trillion assets of the commercial Islamic finance sector.     

Second, social finance is far more inclusive and widely-adopted. In Egypt, for example, the market share of Islamic banking is 9 percent, as per the Islamic Financial Services Board. The percentage of Muslims who report engaging in Zakat, by contrast, is 70 percent as per the Pew Research Institute. Similar patterns are seen across Muslim-majority countries.

Third, social finance embodies key values, such as generosity and concern for others...

The Islamic Economic Model - A Solution to Economic Problems of Today

The Islamic economic system is neither Socialist nor Capitalist, but a "third way" with none of the drawbacks of the other two systems.

Some brief examples of Islamic economic principles:

• The fundamental economic problem is different from the capitalist model of unlimited wants and limited resources. Islam views the fundamental economic problem to be of fair distribution of resources by removing obstacles which prevent the fair distribution of resources

• Interest is strictly forbidden, from banking, state and individual transactions in the Islamic economic model because it circulates wealth away from the people and society and circulates it to the wealthy - the rich grow richer

• Certain resources cannot be held in private hands, under Shariah natural assets like oil, gas, water, belong to the people are considered public assets utilised for the public good and cannot be privately owned or sold for profit

• Money must be asset backed i.e. by precious metals, gold and silver for example and have real real intrinsic value to prevent inflation

• A Tax system (zakat) which taxes wealth and considers a tax on income as oppressive, tax collected is redistributed to provide income for the needy, including the poor, the elderly, orphans, widows, and the disabled

Roundtable Dialogue: How Islamic is Islamic Finance?

When you're saving money - should you be making money?

Today we look at the differences between traditional and Islamic banking. What's allowed - what's not? So how does one system differ from the other?

A bank might lend you $100,000 for a house and make $25,000 in interest. An Islamic bank says that's wrong, but could still end up $25,000 better off - and you still get the house. We’ll try to explain.
