An Islamic financial institution shall, at all times, ensure that its aims, operations, business, affairs and activities are in compliance with Shariah law. Failure to do so would constitute a Shariah Non-Compliance (“SNC”) event. This makes an SNC event a Shariah risk inherent to Islamic finance.
Join Dr Syed Adam as he touches on how Islamic financial institutions manage and mitigate SNC risks and the consequences of an actual SNC event. Understanding the issues surrounding SNC can serve as an insight in preventing or rectifying SNC events.
