Luxembourg for Finance invites you to join our livestream session:

The convergence of Islamic and sustainable finance

Wednesday, 24 November 2021

As the chill of winter sets in across Europe, we turn to the Middle East for our next FOCUS ON event.

Dr. Sami Al-Suwailem, Acting Director General of the Islamic Development Bank Institute, will provide the keynote speech on the recent developments in Islamic and sustainable Finance.

A first panel discussion will delve into the convergence between Islamic and sustainable finance, as well as the future of Islamic capital markets. For this panel, we are joined by experts from CIBAFI, Fitch Ratings, Luxembourg Stock Exchange, Norton Rose Fulbright and Wafra Capital Partners.

The second panel of the day brings together experts from Azimut, Euris Group, EY and KPMG. The panel will discuss Luxembourg’s role as a long-standing European partner for Islamic financial institutions operating globally.

His Excellency Robert Lauer, Luxembourg’s Ambassador to the UAE, will provide the closing remarks for the event, touching on the Dubai Expo 2020.
