The financial services sector was one of the fastest growing industries of the economy in the past decade and was identified as one of the National Key Economic Areas such as Malaysian government. The growth potential of this sector is seen in the Islamic financial services such as the Islamic wealth management and financial planning by local, regional and international players.
Financial planning, being a discipline related to assisting and regulating the process of making financial decisions, comes under the broad purview of Shariah rules and ethics. In addition to Shariah laws related to transactions, those relevant to wealth and finance, as well as financial duties and obligations, are applicable in financial planning. The financial planning process should also conform to the objectives of Shariah pertaining to wealth, as well as human existence.
In the Shariah perspective, wealth is a creation of Allah in its different forms and in principle belongs to him. Thus, wealth in reality is the property of Allah. The right to wealth enjoyed by man is only delegated to him by Allah. This situation becomes clear when it is understood that human involvement in the attainment of wealth is limited to his exerting himself in the process of production and investment.
In general, the audience do not possess a background in Shariah studies, presentation in a simplified and readily understood format is also vital. This challenge is currently being addressed by Shariah scholars. Courses of study that is entirely devoted to treating this subject or books written exclusively under this particular heading of Islamic financial planning are still scarce. Nevertheless, with growing market demand, more advancement is expected in this direction in the near future.
Thus, in order to discuss on the above issues as well as in line with the national agenda to make Malaysia an International Islamic Financial Centre and to promote advancement in Islamic transactions and business, MFPC will be organizing the 6th MFPC International Conference on Islamic Wealth Management & Financial Planning on 8 April 2019 at Manhattan I, Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur and the theme is: “Financial Consumer Protection and Value Based Intermediation”.
This conference will provide a platform to create public awareness of the importance of wealth management and financial planning, deliberate on the essential knowledge regarding Islamic Finance and Shariah; and legal and operational aspects of the Islamic capital market. The talks and panel sessions will provide greater insight into promoting Islamic wealth management and financial planning as an arena for economic growth along with a diversified strategy in approaching a dynamic and competitive financial environment.
Since the Islamic Wealth Management and Financial Planning not only focusing on the Muslims community; the several objectives are hopefully will be achieved:-
- Promote the Islamic Wealth Management and Financial Planning throughout the community.
- Gain a better understanding on the current situation of Islamic Wealth Management and Financial Planning.
- Explore the best current practice of Wealth Management and Financial Planning based on Shariah.
