Islamic financial institutions (IFIs) have enjoyed rapid growth globally and the total global assets of the industry as of end-2014 exceeded USD2.0 trillion or a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.4% between 2009 and 2014. Like other sectors, IFIs are expected to practice good governance to inspire public and stakeholder confidence and trust. To this end, the government introduced the Islamic Financial Services Act 2013 to provide greater regulatory clarity and focus on good governance and social responsibility. Likewise, leading markets like Hong Kong, the Philippines, Singapore and the UK have initiated regulatory reforms with the aim to build well-governed Islamic banking and capital markets.
