Conversion Process to Islamic Financial Institution (CPIFI) 2019

Amanie Academy is proud to announce the second cycle of the CPIFI programme ("Conversion Process to Islamic Financial Institution"), to be held on 11th- 15th March 2019, at Sasana Kijang, Malaysia.

Based on the success, observation and feedback of the previous CPIFI programme, we have enhanced the programme from 3 days to 5 days and include more practical activities and discussions.

Looking at the different experiences across various jurisdictions, there is no "one solution fits all" to undergo conversion process. Thus, this programme intends to outline and discuss the various factors to consider in a conversion process. It will also examine the best practices from successful conversion models.

.....

This program has enriched my knowledge in Islamic Finance and has provided me with in depth understanding of the topic. Globally, some conventional financial institutions are now looking to become shariah financial institution due to its uniqueness, nature and reliability of the products and how they are classified. My main experience in this program is that it has helps me greatly in understanding and knowing the process of how to convert a conventional to Islamic financial institution.
