Course outline

The primary objective of this 10-day Islamic Finance Academy is to provide the course participants with an intensive introduction to the practice of contemporary Islamic finance and investment (commerce and finance in accordance with the principles and precepts of Islamic Shari’ah) from a transactional vantage and with particular emphasis on structuring financial transactions and products within current legal and regulatory constraints.

Islamic finance will be examined both as an application of Islamic religious law and ethics (Shari’ah) and as an effort to create and operate Shari’ah-compliant economic and finance systems (including banking transactions, capital markets transactions and investment transactions) without riba (interest) payments and receipts and based upon a compliant risk-reward paradigm that maintains expected and competitive returns for the transactional parties.

The Academy modules are designed to familiarise the participants with the issues that are encountered in a broad range of different areas of the Islamic finance and investment practice, with the types of solutions that have been developed for resolving those issues, with the methodologies that have been developed for devising those solutions, and with the sensitivities of the different transactional participants. Virtually every aspect of the Academy draws upon case studies of actual transactions.
