    General Council for Islamic Banks and Financial Institutions (CIBAFI), the umbrella of Islamic financial institutions, in cooperation with S&P Global Ratings and under the patronage of the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB) is organizing a Seminar on Credit Ratings: Focus on Islamic Banks and Sukuk Ratings Methodology in Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain on 17 – 18 September 2017.

    This Seminar will provide a great opportunity to engage in the process, methodology, and outcomes of credit ratings, to understand their vital role in assessing the creditworthiness of sovereigns, Islamic banks, and Islamic financial market instruments; a fundamental understanding of the components that result in a high or low rating. Participants will be involved in insightful discussions with senior directors from S&P Global Ratings, and the seminar material will be designed accordingly. 

    The Seminar will cover areas such as Sovereign Ratings Criteria, Bank Specific Rating Factors, Islamic and Conventional Bank Ratings and Sukuk Rating Methodology. It will also involve a discussion on GCC Sovereign Ratings Outlook and Banking Industry Country Risk Assessment as well as recent trends and updates on Sukuk issues and rating cases among many other topics.

    This Seminar is an initiative that is aligned with CIBAFI’s endeavor to enhance capacity building in the Islamic Financial Services Industry (IFSI). CIBAFI, as the ‘voice’ of the industry, aims to provide platforms such as these to develop human capital and bring industry professionals together to encourage dialogue and enhance knowledge sharing on most relevant matters of the IFSI. It is also part of S&P Global Ratings’s long standing journey of providing market intelligence and developing Islamic financial markets and regional capital markets.
