A series of research seminars launched by the Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF) aims to educate participants on topics relevant to finance, banking and training industries in Bahrain and other portions of the Gulf region.
The seminars are part of BIBF’s larger plan to continuously improve leadership in the finance industry as well as develop industry-relevant research. The series began in January with a presentation titled “Islamic Finance is an Interest Free Finance: A Confusing Terminology.”
An April 28 seminar featured BIBF Senior Banking Lecturer Chitra Suresh, who spoke on the financial performance of selected conventional and Islamic banks in the kingdom of Bahrain. Suresh noted the CAMEL rating method for 2007-14 as a source when comparing the performance of retail conventional and Islamic banks throughout Bahrain.
Professors, students and community members interested in the
topics are welcome to attend the series, which take place at the BIBF
campus in Juffair. The seminars are free of charge and attendees are invited to
participate in the discussion that follows the presentation.
