Shariah Registered Financial Planner (RFP) was named the Best Islamic Finance Qualification 2016 yesterday by the Global Islamic Finance Award (GIFA) consecutively after receiving the Best Islamic Finance Education Provider in 2015.

MFPC’s President, Mr. Md Adnan Bin Md Zain received the award at the 6th Global Islamic Finance Awards (GIFA) held in Fairmont Hotel, Jakarta, Republic of Indonesia on 29th September 2016. Md Adnan was accompanied by Mr. Michael Kok Fook On, Deputy President of MFPC, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ahcene Lahsasna, Shariah Advisory Committee of MFPC.

“It’s truly gratifying to have our Shariah Registered Financial Planner (RFP) to be recognized once again by the GIFA Award’s committee as we have been named the ‘Best Islamic Finance Education Provider’ last year.”  It is known to many, our initiative in developing Shariah RFP is to play a part of making Malaysia as an international marketplace for Islamic finance. We believe that our initiative in developing the Islamic financial planning will further solidify our position as the premier umbrella body representing Financial Planning Professionals and Financial Services Providers in Malaysia. We are humble of what we (MFPC) have achieved all these years and this recognition will indeed be the catalyst to further drive us to be committed in what we do, and to benefit not only Malaysians, but we look forward to share our knowledge in Islamic Wealth Management in Asia region and at the global arena in the near future. I am pleased and honored to accept this award”.

Currently, MFPC have more than 10,000 members and 441 of them are qualified Shariah RFP designees. MFPC believes that over the years, the number of Shariah RFP will increase as the demand for it is continuous as financial practitioners and the general public have been vigilant on Islamic wealth management.

The inaugural of GIFA was held on 2011 at the Oman Islamic Economic Forum (OIEF). GIFA emerged as the most respectable market-led awards in Islamic banking and finance. The objective of GIFA is to highlight the best practices in Islamic banking and finance, with an ultimate objective of promoting social responsibility, adherence to Shariah authenticity and commitment to Islamic banking and finance.
