Baku, Fineko/ The Islamic Corporation for the Development of the Private Sector (ICD) and the International Centre for Education in Islamic Finance (INCEIF) have signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) for a capacity building initiative of the private sector in the field of Islamic finance.

The ICD informs that the MOA was signed by ICD’s CEO and General Manager Mr. Khaled Al-Aboodi and INCEIF President and Chief Executive Officer Mr. Daud Vicary Abdullah.

Under the agreement, the ICD will complement the INCEIF-implemented program Charted Islamic Finance Professional (CIFP) participants learning experience through its corporate attachments within ICD and its investee companies globally, with its reputable regional partners and within the IDB Group.

Mr. Al-Aboodi said that strategic collaboration between he ICD and INCEIF will be the catalyst in laying the foundation in addressing the talent shortage of Islamic finance professionals and serve as “building the knowledge in-roads” to the growing interest in Islamic finance mainly in the region of Central Asia, Sub Saharan Africa, Middle East and North Africa and other parts of the world.
