PwC to conduct Islamic finance seminar in October.

Muscat: PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) will host its first ever specialised Islamic finance and banking seminar/short course in the Sultanate of Oman from October 12 to 14.

Visiting PwC Islamic finance specialists from the region will be faculty members, which has been specially designed to include the latest developments and issues in this topical subject.

The aim is to provide participants not only with a good all-round knowledge of Islamic finance but also to provide a short course that can be used as a foundation for those wishing to go on to do a more formal AAOIFI qualification.

AAOIFI is the Accounting and Audiiting Organisation for Islamic Financial Institutions and was established in 1990 to maintain and promote Sharia standards for Islamic financial institutions, participants and the overall industry.

Currency trading

PwC partners Mohamed El Moataz and Tamer Tawab, based in PwC's Egypt office, will be covering everything from the basics of Sharia concepts to accounting concepts, Murarabaha, Musharaka, Sallam, Ijara, Zakan Istisna and sukuk investments.

There will also be a section on trading in currencies and the use of debit and credit cards.

Kenneth Macfarlane, country senior partner at PwC Oman, said, "This is an exclusive high-profile event covering a topic many people are interested in nowadays in Oman due to the expansion of Islamic finance.

Participants will not only receive relevant knowledge from leading PwC experts, but they will also have the chance to network with those from other organisations in their industry." The course will be organiseed by PwC's Academy in Oman, which runs a nummer of other financial and non-financial courses, seminars and workshops in Muscat.
