The Pitch will feature the hottest Islamic Finance startups- these are not opportunities you want to miss! We believe that Fintech is the future of Islamic Finance and that countless startups are just one investment away from changing the world. 

Islamic Fintech is making headway and looks set to disrupt an Islamic Financial system with assets of US$2.5 trillion to become a key shaper of the industry’s future making it a dynamic investment opportunity. Fintech solutions are leading a transition of Islamic Finance with platforms tackling problems and market gaps in a Shariah-compliant manner. 

Three key areas of fintech investment- crowdfunding, challenger banks, and blockchain development- are clear examples of technological solutions addressing chronic issues for both retail and industry. This rapid growth is providing a magnitude of opportunities to the smart investor and with the majority of startups still at pre-Series A fundraising, the time to invest is now. 

The Pitch is set to be a part of IFW2020, a platform for stakeholders, regulators, tech startups and the Islamic finance fraternity to come together to jumpstart the expansion of Islamic fintech. The inaugural IFW is hosted in Malaysia this year, with the theme “Islamic Fintech Future”. The week will feature a themed series of masterclasses, roundtable sessions and panel debates carefully curated to address local and global challenges and uplift humanity.
