Noor Trade, Noor Bank’s Shari’a compliant service targeting small- and medium-sized businesses, recently finished a seminar about Islamic trade finance for customers.
“Noor Trade is pleased to routinely hold interactive knowledge sessions that provide our customers with valuable insights and information from our team of experts,”
Head of Emerging Corporates Sunando Mukhopadhyay said. “In sharing crucial market intelligence, we aim to empower our customers to make informed financial decisions.”
This seminar was part of an ongoing series featured by Noor Trade and opened with a presentation by Ehsaan Ahmed, head of GTS and Corporate Strategy at Noor Bank, who emphasized the range of differences between Shari’a banking and conventional banking. Then, a panel discussed various trade structures that Noor Bank offers, advantages of Islamic banking, and challenges and growth areas within the region’s banking sector.
“The response from our customers was truly rewarding,” Noor Bank's Head of Corporate Banking Kazim Ali said. “Customers remain our core focus at Noor and we are dedicated to tailoring our products and services to suit their needs. Given this priority, we are looking at hosting similar initiatives to build on the success of Noor Trade -- one of the fastest growing businesses for the bank in 2014.”
