FOREWORDS

“The launch of the maiden edition of the Islamica 500 at the World Islamic Economic Forum in Kuala Lumpur in 2015 was indeed an important moment. It was also an opportune time to have a Who’s Who in the Muslim business world as it is a guide book that will provide us with information and contacts of influential personalities and prominent business leaders that are shaping the Islamic economy and markets. Connectivity is key to sustainable economic growth (..)It is certainly an honour to be given the privilege to write the foreword for the third edition of the Islamica 500, and to be listed among the leading personalities from the various sectors of the Islamic business world, too.

I hope this directory adds significant value to continue building bridges to the global market.”

Today, Islamic finance is transitioning to the next stage of development with greater international integration. Consequently, collective efforts undertaken by all industry stakeholders to mobilise a higher level of global cooperation will help to further enhance the prospects of Islamic finance moving forward. To achieve this, the importance of having a well-established business network cannot be ignored.

On this front, the Islamica 500 will undeniably play a useful role. Serving as a comprehensive directory of leading Islamic finance practitioners globally, it is my hope that existing as well as new industry players will find the available information to be of valuable reference. At a minimum, this directory will provide a better understanding of the Islamic finance ecosystem and acknowledge the dedicated individuals who are steering the industry to its next level of growth and success.
