After two successful Summits in Zurich, Switzerland, the Responsible Finance & Investment Foundation and Swiss Arab Network, will hold the RFI Summit 2019 in Abu Dhabi, UAE. It will be held at Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), a broad-based international financial centre for local, regional and international institutions with three independent authorities – the Registration Authority, the Financial Services Regulatory Authority and ADGM Courts.
The RFI Summit 2019 will build on its mission to bring together leaders from Islamic finance and other parts of responsible finance to a showcase of the leading examples of how responsible finance addresses the Sustainable Development Goals. It will offer continuity from RFI Summit 2018 in presenting specific case studies of responsible finance to show how responsible finance principles translate into practice both within conventional and Islamic finance.
The RFI Summit 2018 hosted the Support Disruption for Good Challenge and recognised three winners who used innovative technology to address issues relating to healthcare (Aid:TECH), agriculture (INBONIS) and sustainable cities (thirdACT).
