Workshop | SHAPE for Economic Consulting WLLSHAPE for Economic Consulting WLL
The main aim of the course is to enable the candidates to compare and contrast how different financial solutions are structured in Islamic finance. We will also examine the Basel risk profiles of the different Islamic instruments. We review the various Shariah rules in the market; starting with AAOIFI and explaining where and why variances from AAOIFI occur. The course will use discussions; exercises; and problems to ensure candidates grasp the core rules governing Islamic tools. The exercises cover banking and financing applications (retail and corporate); as well as simple capital market activities (Sukuk and funds) when relevant.
