About the Forum
With its Sukuk aspirations finally realized in 2017 and its only Islamic bank receiving an international operating license, Nigeria has a lot to offer to the global Islamic finance industry. The African nation has been steadily giving stiff competition to its neighbors like South Africa, Uganda and Djibouti on the Shariah front and with its debut sovereign Sukuk, Nigeria sealed its place at the top of the regional Islamic finance league. On the 16th November 2020, join IFN as it convenes industry experts and decision-makers at its inaugural IFN Nigeria Forum to discuss on the challenges and opportunities in the Nigerian Islamic finance market.

The world has changed. How Islamic banking, finance and investment chooses to respond to these changes may be a generation-defining moment. Can Islamic finance in Nigeria use this opportunity to become truly responsible, inclusive and ethical, while at the same time contributing to the country’s growth and development through initiatives such as Sovereign Sukuk? What is a realistic assessment of Islamic investment management initiatives in West Africa and where can Nigeria play a role? What influences the deployment of Shariah compliant capital in the region and what do private equity, Sukuk funds, trade finance funds and Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) offer? What are the touch points between responsible finance and Islamic finance in Nigeria and West Africa and what opportunities are on offer for closer collaboration and alignment between these activities? From the viewpoint of Nigerian investors, what constitutes a green, responsible, ethical or sustainable investment? We ask a respected panel for a new roadmap to success for Islamic banking, finance and asset management in Nigeria.

Thank you for inviting me to the event co-sponsored by the government of Cote d’Ivoire, the Islamic Corporation for the Development of the Private Sector (ICD) and the REDmoney Group. I appreciate the opportunity given to participate as one of the panelists at the Africa Islamic Finance Forum. I indeed found it to be useful, thought provoking and an opportunity to advocate the sustained growth of Islamic finance in Africa. The networking opportunities and exposures were valuable. Extend my sincere appreciation to the Minister of Planning and Development for all the Hospitality provided during the two-day event. I will honor future invitations in support of future Africa Islamic Finance Forum events.
Congratulations on a very successful event.

This is the best Islamic Finance Forum I have ever attended.
Very much appreciated and a big congratulations to you and your team. The event was very successful. We look forward to many more collaborative efforts.
IFN Nigeria Forum was the perfect platform to boost discussions around the growth and direction of Islamic finance in Nigeria. The diversity of participants, involvement of regulators and pertinent topics deliberated all contributed to the success of the event. We are pleased to have partnered on such an impactful forum.
A big thank you for all the effort you put into this conference. Alhamdulilah we are getting very positive feedback. This initial conference has provided great perspectives
We attended the Kenya and South African legs of the IFN African Roadshow and found both to be well attended and organized; this was especially the case in Cape Town where the quality of speakers and discussion was very high.

Thank you for putting together a successful IFN South Africa 2019!
Many thanks to Andrew Tebbutt and the REDmoney team on delivering an exceptional event in South Africa. The agenda covered critical issues and challenges facing Islamic banking in South Africa, with possible solutions. The various speakers and panel participants were well versed within their respective fields. Most importantly, the networking among all invited guests was invaluable. We look forward to the follow-up event in 2020.
