Touching on the new Brunei Darussalam’s Islamic Capital Market, the Minister of Home Affairs hopes to see a deep Capital Market that drives sustainable economic development through the efficient mobilisation of funds, leading to a thriving private sector and job creation. But more importantly, Yang Berhormat Pehin said is to envisage the Islamic Capital Market to become a platform for Socially Responsible Investments, SRI and Green Finance in order to support the achievement of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. In this context, Yang Berhormat Pehin added, it is timely to unlock the waqaf sector to drive not only the growth of Islamic Impact Investing but also the overall Islamic finance industry.

With the theme ‘Islamic Capital Market: Its Role in Catalysing Economic Growth’, the two-day conference gathered international experts who shared their knowledge through keynote speeches, moderated presentations and panel discussions. The conference held at Rizqun International Hotel in Gadong is organised by Centre for Islamic Banking, Finance and Management, CIBFM and event partner, International Centre of Education in Islamic Finance, INCEIF with the support of AMBD.
