Personal profile

Research Interests

Islamic Banking; Islamic Finance; Takaful (Islamic insurance)

Vision Statement


I conducted some research on why a UK based Islamic Insurance provider (Salaam) failed within two years of operation. It was a case study which provided a rich insight into the corporate failure and lessons to be derived for the Takaful industry. Based on this research, I was invited to present a Masterclass to Islamic Finance practitioners at the International Takaful Summit held in February, 2015.
