Munira Ibrahim, Reuters SVP for Sales and Content Solutions, said; “In a world where equities are rallying and technology is disrupting our relationship with money, it’s important to understand what role Islamic Finance has to play. With the esteemed panellists, the event will discuss key issues on Islamic Finance- whether it has peaked and how it ensures it remains competitive, relevant and, above all, attractive?”
