A larger group of professional talents are needed globally to respond to new set of challenges brought upon by the current wave of technological innovations in the financial services industry, said Chartered Institute of Islamic Finance Professionals (CIIF).
Fresh pool of talents are also needed to fill new gaps and roles arising from the growing demands for ethical and sustainable finance offered by Islamic finance.
These statements were made during CIIF's second conferment ceremony for its new chartered members that took place here recently.
CIIF president Datuk Badlisyah Abdul Ghani said with the global Islamic financial services industry assets growing by 11.3 per cent year-on-year, which was equivalent to a total estimated worth of US$3.06 trillion in 2021, having the right and insightful knowledge was essential for Islamic finance professionals to deliver high quality service to stakeholders.
