WHY Cambridge-IIF ?
Islamic banking and finance is a multi-trillion dollar industry globally. There are about 15 countries where it has assumed mainstream relevance. However, there are regulatory and other impediments that prevent its further growth. There are still several other countries where it has yet to emerge as a meaningful activity.
Cambridge Institute of Islamic Finance – Cambridge-IIF – is an independent research centre, specialising in the financial sectors of the countries wherein Islamic banking and finance is a significant activity. Leveraging upon the academic resources the city of Cambridge has to offer, Cambridge-IIF is well-positioned to undertake research projects to study the global phenomenon of Islamic banking and finance.
Cambridge-IIF aims at conducting policy-oriented research to further spur growth in Islamic banking and finance, with a special focus on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
