ICM Series: Islamic Derivatives Explained

Dates:  3 August 2019 (8.30am - 5.00pm) 
Venue: Securities Commission Malaysia
Accreditation: SIDC CPE Eligible

Despite their importance in financial sector development, derivatives are few and far between in countries where the compatibility of capital market transactions with Islamic law requires the development of Shariah-compliant structures. Islamic finance is governed by the Shariah, which bans speculation, but stipulates that income must be derived as profits from shared business risk rather than interest or guaranteed return.
