International Conference on Governance and Wealth Management 2018 – Issues on Shariah Compliance (ICGROWTH 2018)
4th September 2018, TENERA HOTEL, Bangi, Selangor Malaysia Website, Registration & Submission:


In Malaysia, the legal framework of Islamic financial system has been in place since 1960’s with the establishment of Tabung Haji as an institution to manage pilgrimage fund. Islamic financial planning and wealth management is part of the system governed by the regulatory jurisdictions of Securities Commission of Malaysia which oversee the Islamic capital market development; and Bank Negara as the Central Bank overseeing the development of Islamic financial system as a whole.

Wealth management is no longer an individual concern but nowadays it is also extended to the companies. The innovation of the products and instruments should take into account many integrated issues. They are expected to be Shariah compliant while at the same time economically viable, efficient, sustainable and friendly to the rising segment of responsible and educated investors. The linking of investment and issues of ethics has particularly triggered and raised the increasing acceptance of Islamic finance globally.

The development of wealth management products and instruments must also be in line with the relevant maqasid Shariah for example to achive an acceptable standard in the preservation of wealth. However, to what extent do these existing products and instruments comply with these requirements? Is there a need to innovate more products to meet the demands of the markets? This conference will provide a wide platform to address such concerns.
