We are delighted to invite you to join Joe DiVanna, Managing Director of Maris Strategies, as he shares the challenges, opportunities and trends in retail banking around the globe.

2014 was a remarkable year for the Islamic Banking and Finance sector, which exceeded 2 trillion US dollars in assets through access to new markets in Europe and Asia as well as growth in its traditional markets such as Malaysia, Pakistan and the Middle East.

In 2015, Africa will see significant growth taking place in countries which include Morocco, Tunis, Nigeria, Tanzania and South Africa. Insurance, micro-finance and asset management also stand to benefit from alignment with Islamic Banking principles and practices.
