The Institute of Islamic Banking and Insurance has played a major role in Islamic finance in London through its lectures, seminars and courses. Its diplomas are internationally recognised and have been taken by hundreds of Muslims and non-Muslims interested in Islamic finance.

When you talk about thought leadership the Institute of Islamic Banking and Insurance comes to mind as the original thought leadership platform from which many of the products, services and ideas have come to the Islamic finance industry.

There would have been no career in Islamic for me and many of my friends who started at the time with me without the Institute of Islamic Banking and Insurance. The organisation provided the only source of educational response to the needs that was developing in the City of London and across Europe. Without that organisation none of the new or developmental programmes of education would ever have occurred.
