About The Forum
Kenya is an African Islamic finance pioneer. Despite being a Muslim-minority nation, Kenya has blazed the trail spearheading game-changing policy reforms ahead of its regional peers to build a robust Islamic finance ecosystem. With a thriving Shariah banking community and growing Takaful and Islamic funds sectors, Kenya continues to nurture local demand and attract international interest.
On the back of this vibrant landscape, IFN is excited to return to this Islamic finance frontier for its third IFN Kenya Forum. Together with leading Islamic finance stalwarts from Kenya and abroad, the IFN Kenya Forum 2021 will host the industry’s finest to discuss, deliberate and explore opportunities and the most pressing issues facing the Kenyan Islamic financial market.
With new Islamic finance players preparing to enter the market and possibilities for Sukuk activities, Kenya is brimming with exciting potential.
An Introduction to 2021
At REDmoney, 2020 taught us much about the state of the events business. What works, what doesn’t and how to continue delivering unparalleled programs to our global audience.
It’s a fundamental element of our business going forward, and we will continue to adapt to ensure we remain relevant and our events remain the industry’s best.
The global appetite and requirements for converging has shifted and now more than ever, we are strategically planning our events to adapt to these changes in the face of disruption without compromising on the quality of knowledge transfer and outreach.
Technological advancements have given rise to exciting opportunities in developing new formats that allows unlimited real time interaction remotely.
Moving forward, we will deliver a blend of physical and online events, ensuring the best of both worlds. Physical interaction is important to many, whilst travel and time away from the office isn’t always necessary to reach new markets.
For 2021, through careful research and planning, we have curated bespoke events online and offline with your interest in mind.

Hailed as the new frontier for Islamic finance, Africa – where a quarter of the world’s Muslim population call home – is a land fertile with opportunities.
In recent years, the continent has seen promising developments in the Islamic finance space: country and regional authorities are pushing for new regulations to facilitate Shariah compliant transactions; new financial institutions offering Islamic products are emerging; foreign banks are establishing an African presence primarily to tap the Muslim population; and more African sovereigns are making their mark in the Sukuk space.
And it is truly an exciting time for Islamic finance in Kenya. On the back of this vibrant landscape, IFN is delighted to return to one of the fastest-growing Islamic finance markets in the region. The IFN Kenya Forum will gather leading market practitioners and regulators from across the region to discuss and debate the most pressing issues of the industry.
