The Islamic Finance Council UK (UKIFC), in partnership with Malaysia based International Shari’ah Research Academy for Islamic Finance (ISRA), has launched the second report in its 4-part thought leadership series that aims to assist and encourage active engagement in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the global Islamic finance sector.
The report provides a quantitative and qualitative analysis of responsible investing in the Islamic finance sector, assessing the level of engagement with the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) amongst financial institutions in Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member states and analysing the approaches and terminology used by 12 Islamic finance signatories. It also features detailed case studies on BIMB Investment Management Berhad, DDCAP Group, GIB UK and Sedco Capital who have all shown notable leadership in responsible investing.
