Abdelilah BELATIK

Secretary General of CIBAFI

Welcome to the 28 issue of the Global Islamic Economics Magazine, (GIEM), a publication dedicated to keeping you up to date on the key activities and achievements of CIBAFI, as well as the latest developments in the Islamic Financial Services industry (IFSI).

The IFSI is experiencing rapid global growth and innovation, and in order to support and sustain this high rate of industry progress, against a business backdrop of increasing complexity, the industry is facing a multitude of challenges. One key challenge that is confronting the IFSI is a dearth of professional talent.

This month I would like to share with you the professional development initiatives CIBAFI are spearheading as we strive to overcome this challenge and support capacity building and human capital development in the IFSI.

The exponential growth of the IFSI is fueled, in part, by the development of innovative financial products and services, however, along with innovation and progress comes significant demand for new expertise and skills. CIBAFI recognises that a substantial pool of professional talent is a precondition for the future growth of the Islamic Financial Services Industry, and as such, are committed to providing a comprehensive array of professional development courses that will support an enhanced industry wide skill set.

 

In order to meet this demand, CIBAFI offers a diverse array of certifications, diplomas and masters programmes, and I am pleased to report that we are now broadening the scope of our professional offerings to include specialised technical workshops and advanced executive programmes.

 

This year CIBAFI will be conducting three Technical Workshops on Risk Management, Islamic Capital Markets and Banking sectors in Bahrain, Kuwait and the UAE, and in 2015 we are looking to expand our geographical reach and hold similar technical workshops in more locations throughout the region and beyond.

 

The workshops are targeted to mid-level staff of Islamic banks and Islamic financial institutions, and will address technical issues relevant to the challenges facing IFSI professionals today. The stimulating, interactive workshops seamlessly integrate theory with practice to offer participants hands on experience and provide the practical tools and techniques that will enhance their day-to-day professional performance.

 

The Executive Programmes are tailored to meet the high level demands required of the C-suite, top management, or Board level executives that seek to help their organisations successfully navigate the obstacles of today’s fast paced and dynamic IFSI. All of our Executive Programmes are delivered from a strategic standpoint with the focus of this year’s programmes being Islamic Investment. A number of other relevant and exciting topics are also planned for 2015.

 

As well as these new professional development initiatives, CIBAFI will continue to enhance industry wide knowledge sharing and collaboration through various activities and initiatives that will facilitate learning, innovation and change.

Together, we can meet the growing demand for IFSI talent and craft creative solutions to industry challenges, while developing even more pioneering Shariah compliant products and services that will elevate the performance of the industry to even greater heights.
