The Islamic Finance Qualification (IFQ) is a ground-breaking qualification that covers Islamic finance from both a technical and Sharia'a perspective, providing the first international benchmark in the area of Islamic finance. Aimed at new and existing investment professionals specialising in Sharia'a compliant finance, trade, investment and insurance, the IFQ is primarily a practical Islamic banking qualification, but also covers the legal aspects of Sharia'a which underpin all Islamic contracts.
Many experts are estimating the growth of the Islamic Finance industry at more than 20% per annum with some experts predicting that in the future, the Islamic Finance industry could become a major competitor to the conventional finance industry. Experts expect to see Islamic Finance spread beyond Muslim countries - as seen in Europe where it has already made considerable headway in the UK, Germany and Switzerland.
