Deloitte and IRTI to Run Islamic Finance and Takaful Training Programmes

The Deloitte Islamic Finance Knowledge Center (IFKC) in the Middle East has signed an MOU of a collaborative training initiative with the Islamic Research and Training Institute (IRTI), a member of the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) Group.

The initiative responds to calls from industry leaders and regulators to develop industry-based training programmes for the steadfastly growing industry of Islamic Finance and Takaful (IFT).

"This initiative between Deloitte and IRTI draws on the importance of collaboration among industry stakeholders to strengthen knowledge-sharing process and address the industry challenges and market practices. In particular this collaboration aims to streamline professional education and capacity building in Islamic finance," said Joseph El Fadl, Regional Leader Global FSI at Deloitte Middle East.

The 2013 Stability report by the Islamic Finance Service Board (IFSB) states that 'some of the remaining challenges to be overcome include the development of human capital which increases with the development of innovative Islamic financial products and services'.
