The Islamic Business & Finance Awards 2008 have been designed to recognize and reward excellence throughout the global Islamic Finance community. They honor Islamic Financial institutions from around the world and emphasize the importance and increasing attraction of Islamic finance.
Khalid Faraj Al-Said, Managing Director and General Manager of ITS, has accepted the award during a gala ceremony held on Monday 12th January 2009 at the Emirates Towers Hotel, Dubai which was attended by CEOs, industry professionals and top officials representing several IT firms, banks and financial institutions from the Gulf region and beyond.
âWe are proud to receive the Best Islamic Finance Technology Provider Award. This award is recognition of ITSâs strategic vision, management depth and our belief in Islamic banking principles,â said Al-Said. âOver the past year, we have invested heavily in our Sharia-compliant software and solutions. With the current financial crisis, I see a prospering future for the Islamic finance as it still promises stability and success in difficult times.â
The Islamic Business & Finance Awards were launched in 2005 in response to the phenomenal growth of the Islamic finance industry, currently estimated at US$638.3 billion. Winners of the award were chosen by the readers of Islamic Business & Finance Magazine who voted for contestants from a shortlist created by a judging panel of rating and consulting firms. Shortlisted firms are judged with greater transparency based on their performance over the last twelve months.
