DFSA Facilitates Certification of 10 UAE Nationals in the Fundamentals of Islamic Banking and Finance

​The Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA) announces today ten UAE Nationals who the DFSA will facilitate to obtain a certified qualification on Fundamentals of Islamic Banking and Finance from the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI), UK. The ten were selected by the DFSA through an assessment made at a workshop hosted by the DFSA last month on Islamic finance. The seminar is part of the DFSA's Bawabaty 'My Gateway' initiative launched last year. The initiative aims to assist UAE Nationals wishing to pursue a career in financial services; to provide lifelong learning opportunities for our local community; and to support community education in financial services.

The workshop participants came from a number of universities and government entities across the UAE. The content of the workshop was developed by CISI and delivered by DFSA's Islamic finance expert. The non-sponsored participants will receive a 50% discount on the examination fees.

Mr Waleed Saeed Al Awadhi, Director, Operations and Corporate Affairs of the DFSA said: "We are very happy to congratulate the ten UAE Nationals who scored the highest in the assessment conducted by the DFSA last month and wish them all the best in their exam. The DFSA's objective is to continue to be an active role player in the preparation of an innovative Emirati generation in the field of Islamic finance that contributes to the "Dubai the Capital of Islamic Economy" initiative which is in line with the vision of the UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum."
