Islamic Finance and Impact Financing.
The Islamic financial services industry (IFSI) is widely recognised as a place where good practice and ethical behaviour based on Islamic principles is encouraged. Some reports in recent years have suggested that Sharia-compliant investment funds can out-perform similar conventional investment funds in times of market stress.
Today, as the world demands greener more sustainable solutions, Neil Miller (Global Head of Islamic Finance, Linklaters London) and Victor Louvet (Managing Associate, Investment Funds, Linklaters Luxembourg) see an opportunity for greater alignment between Islamic investment parameters and the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation and the Taxonomy Regulation requirements. Can generic Islamic principles applied subjectively around the world ever converge with the objective requirements of Europe’s regulations?
Join us to hear how Luxembourg’s growing role in ESG can help provide the right environment.
