Building for the Future: Islamic Sustainable Investment

What specific challenges face the Islamic, sustainable investor, and what opportunities? As an industry, how do we continue to widen our investor base through the development of appealing investment products that satisfy both ESG and Shariah compliance requirements? How do we capitalize on the green ambitions of Shariah compliant asset owners, institutional investors and investment managers, and take tangible steps to align investment portfolios with taxonomy driven sustainability goals? Can investment and credit portfolios be effectively stress-tested for climate risk, and how do investors satisfy disclosure and data reporting requirements? How can investors more accurately measure the impact of investments made, and what are investors now expecting from issuers in terms of ESG awareness, innovation and compliance? In a highly competitive market, how can investors effectively use ESG data and indices to accurately value portfolios and measure performance? We seek the views of an expert panel.
