First Annual North American Conference on Islamic Finance
The purpose of the North American Conference on Islamic Finance (NACIF) is to foster the sharing of global knowledge. It is an international forum for Islamic finance scholars and practitioners to discuss and collaborate on the various innovative practices that are being used in the Islamic finance industry. Ultimately, the goal of NACIF is to facilitate sustainable finance practices that benefit society at all levels.
On behalf of the Organizing and Academic Committees of the conference and the Board of Trustees of Guidance College, Texas, we warmly welcome you to the First North American Conference on Islamic Finance (NACIF) in the beautiful city of Houston, Texas. The conference theme, Prospects and Opportunities has been carefully chosen to emphasize the tremendous opportunities for Islamic financial products in the untapped North American market. The United States is home to over five million Muslims, who desperately need reliable Shari'a-compliant financial products. Unfortunately, there are not many Islamic financial companies that can cater to the financial needs of this growing Muslim population.
Guidance College has served the country's Muslim community by imparting quality religious and Islamic finance education to the community over the past ten years. The College has made notable contributions in teaching, research, and community activism, resulting in substantial social and economic uplift of the community. NACIF is just one more courageous step taken by the College to provide a platform for scholars, academics, and practitioners to share their knowledge and experience so that the latent opportunities for Islamic financial products and services are discovered.
NACIF is currently accepting submissions of research abstracts, papers, cases studies and innovative practices in all areas of Islamic Finance. Please complete your submission here https://www.nacif.us/call-for-papers.html
