3RD INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ISLAMIC BANKING & FINANCE

One of the main functions of both the conventional as well as Islamic commercial banks is to take the deposits from the general public for the purpose of finance to Industrialists, business class and the people who are already rich in general. However, people who are poor and marginalized are deprived of taking finance from the Islamic banks. Therefore, it is argued that, Islamic banks are unable to cater the micro-entrepreneurs, marginalized clients including small and landless farmers and hence unable to contribute towards the socioeconomic wellbeing of the society.

On the other hand, conventional microfinance banks have become the sole and significant players of providing access to credit to underserved low income people however, this credit is interest based, as the same emerges through loan contract. Therefore, the time has now come for the Islamic banks in Pakistan to ponder upon the wellbeing of the marginalized people of the society and to help them keeping away from Riba which is prohibited in the Holy book of glorious Quran by establishing Islamic Microfinancing banks including Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) that will contribute towards the objective of poverty alleviation, generate employment opportunities and enhance economic growth in the country through inclusive Islamic financial products.

In this perspective, the Institute of Business Management (IoBM) with an objective to enhance research opportunities in general, and to reduce the gap between academia and industry in particular, is organizing the 3rd International Conference on Islamic Banking and Finance which provides a platform among academics, Shari'ah scholars and practitioners to share and synthesize their theoretical, empirical and field related knowledge regarding establishment of Islamic micro, small and medium financing banks and also shed light on the Islamic perspective of corporate social responsibility.

Where the conventional classroom-based educational methodologies are becoming increasingly ineffective, perhaps the future lies in the past. The time tested concept of Experiential learning in professional disciplines such as business, education, engineering and media offers greater avenues for invigorating the learner of today and tomorrow.  If you think you are at the leading edge of Project-based, Problem-based or  Activity-based learning, then come and share your experience with us at IoBM where an organza of like minded professionals awaits you.

International Conference on Islamic Banking & Finance

Islamic banking was initiated in Pakistan in the year 2002 with an objective to offer not only interest free financing solutions as compare to its conventional counterpart interest based banks but also to contribute towards the wellbeing of the society through its 1st tier products of Mudarabah and Musharakah which ensures price stability, unemployment reduction and economic growth that leads to socioeconomic development in the country.
It’s now time to reassess and reevaluate the socioeconomic impacts of the existing products of Islamic banking industry in Pakistan and try to shed some light as to why Mudarabah and Musharakah have not been implemented as yet? What are the obstacles faced by Islamic banking industry in implementing these products? What would be prospective and/or possible solution to these problems? Is it better to move forward from Islamic Banking to Islamic Trading Houses to implement 1st TIER products of IBF?

According to the most eminent scholar in the field of Islamic banking, Justice Retd.Muhammad Taqi Usmani inscribed in his book titled, “Introduction to Islamic Finance” contemporary products of Murabaha , Ijarah and Diminishing Musharakah which are being offered by Islamic banks can get Muslim Umma away from interest. However, they are not sufficient to meet higher objectives of Islamic economics and financial system and the real products of Islamic banks are Mudarabah and Musharakah which have got intrinsic capability to meet macroeconomic objectives of price stability, unemployment reduction and economic growth.

International Conference on Islamic Finance - Practice, Regulation and Sustainability

Islamic finance is increasingly gaining momentum on the global scene as a viable alternate financial system, grounded in its strong fundamentals risk sharing and asset backed financing. The current asset-base of global Islamic finance industry (IFI) stands at around 2 trillion US$. In Pakistan Islamic banking industry has shown significant progress since its re-launch in 2002. At present, the Islamic banking industry has acquired 11.4 percent share in assets and 13.2 percent share in deposits of overall banking industry. State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) is among the few regulators who have introduced a comprehensive legal, regulatory, and Shari'ah compliance framework for the Islamic Banking Industry.

SBP's recent study findings reflect that there is a huge potential for further development of Islamic banking in Pakistan and a significant proportion of demand lies amongst those who are still financially excluded, most important being the low penetrated agriculture and SME sector.

Government has also been keen and committed towards promotion of Islamic Banking as has been evident from the reforms and development measures on legal, regulatory and taxation frameworks, liquidity management ,conversion of government debt into Shari’a compliant financing, Islamic capital market, Modaraba sector, and capacity development initiatives conducted by its steering committee.

Broadly, the overall Islamic Financial Ecosystem is sailing smoothly towards the development of mature, well-formed and complete financial market - as evident in the Sukuk Issuances from sovereign and corporate entities, Takaful, Mutual Funds, Banca-takaful and other wealth management offerings. Nevertheless, the rapid growth of Islamic finance has also necessitated a need of strong risk management function, prudent corporate governance and transparency. The unique risks embedded in Islamic Banking model solicits strengthening and customization of the prevalent International risk management, stability and capital adequacy frameworks to ensure stability and sustainability. Properly exploiting the unique features of Islamic finance with appropriate adaptability, and without compromising principles of sharia (Islamic law), will be critical to the growth and promising future of the Islamic finance industry.The onus lies on the academia and practice to pursue a collaborative research endeavour to develop innovative solutions while maintaining authenticity enshrined in the Shari'ah Ideals.

The conference provides a platform among academics, Shari'ah Scholars and practitioners to share and synthesize their theoretical, empirical and field related knowledge directed towards the development of Islamic Financial System along the dimensions of financing solutions, risk management, regulation and stability of IFIs to accomplish the aspired economic and sustainable development.
