The Centre for Islamic Finance at BIBF has received the World’s Best Islamic Training Institution Award for 2010.It was awarded by CPI Financial’s Islamic Business and Finance, a sister publication of The Banker.
The award was received during the Islamic Business and Finance Awards Ceremony held at the Emirates Towers Hotel in Dubai.
“To have received this honour for the third time indicates the strides that BIBF and in particular the Centre for Islamic Finance had made in leading, coaching and advising both local and international staff in Islamic finance education,” BIBF director Garry Muriwai said.
“It is important to recognise the legacy of the late Mahmood Al Shehabi who as the prior head of Islamic finance at BIBF was the instigator of much of what the centre has achieved to date.
“The award is an acknowledgement of our significant efforts not only in investing intellectual and monetary resources in Islamic finance education but also the continued innovation in delivering Islamic finance solutions.
“The success we enjoy is attributed to the strong support and guidance provided by the Bahrain government. Special thanks go out to the Central Bank of Bahrain and the Waqf Fund for their tremendous support to BIBF’s Centre for Islamic Finance,” added Mr. Muriwai.
“I would like to congratulate the entire BIBF team on their success. Never in our history has a company won an award in three consecutive years. This is truly a great achievement and a genuine reflection of your success,” CPI Financial chief operating officer Adam Broom said.
