About The Roadshow
This is the 3rd IFN Bangladesh event.
Demand for Islamic banking in Bangladesh is on the rise as a result of the country’s robust economic growth, rising population and expanding middle class.
Bangladesh Bank issued Islamic banking guidelines in 2009; the Securities and Exchange Commission announced it was working on regulations for Sukuk and derivatives in 2019; and the central bank also issued the refinance scheme for investment in green products or initiatives targeted at Islamic banks and financial institutions.
Bangladesh boasts 11 fully-fledged Islamic banks and 15 Islamic windows, holding almost 24% of the country’s deposits and investments. There are 11 Takaful operators and about 12 conventional insurers offering Takaful products.
The government issues regular Islamic investment bonds; there have been numerous Sukuk issuances, particularly among financial institutions; there are two Islamic indices; numerous Islamic funds; and there is a robust Islamic fintech sector.
So much to cover. So much to learn. So many opportunities.Register Now
An Introduction to 2022
2022 – READY TO REBOOT
Welcome to the IFN OnAir Roadshow 2022.
Following the hugely successful IFN OnAir Roadshow 2021 we are delighted to announce an extended series for 2022.
The past two years have been difficult for many. For the first time in almost a century, the world ground to a halt, meaning minimal physical interaction, and a shuddering halt to B2B events as we knew them.
At REDmoney, we went online, building a new platform allowing us to deliver virtual events to our readers and followers around the world. And, although OnAir events don’t allow for face-to-face meetings and that personal interaction we all enjoy, there’s very much a place for them moving forwards, and this is recognized through the IFN OnAir Roadshow visiting a series of key markets in 2022.
These are all key markets in the world of Islamic finance, and we believe will be significant participants in the coming years and are delighted to deliver these events in a virtual format.
The IFN OnAir Roadshow is a series of online roundtables, streamed to a global unlimited audience. As the Islamic finance industry’s leading media and events company; these events will retain their exclusivity and unmatched reach.

Building Momentum: Islamic Finance in Bangladesh
With the Bangladesh Sukuk market achieving several firsts in 2021, what is next for this burgeoning sector, and what effects will tax and regulatory changes have? Will we see further incentives and how can corporate issuers be encouraged to embrace Sukuk as a form of mainstream financing? How should Bangladesh further employ Shariah-based green and responsible financing solutions in response to important challenges, such as limiting climate change, alleviating poverty, and driving financial inclusion? How are Islamic financial institutions in Bangladesh employing technology to help the unbanked, while also improving end-user experience across a range of financing activities? Finally, as a fast-growing, export-driven economy, what role should Bangladesh’s Islamic banks play in the facilitation of international trade, and what financing tools do local small and medium companies require?
