The annual Ethical Finance Innovation Challenge and Awards (EFICA) return in 2016 for the 4th time to inspire and assist initiatives that promote ethical and Islamic finance.
Thomson Reuters and Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank aspire to change people's lives for the better by highlighting the most innovative financial initiatives and giving them the support they need to grow and prosper. During the past 3 years, EFICA has become a leading finance award selecting winners from more than 400 applications received from around the world and providing the opportunity for 19 finalists to present their initiatives at an EFICA gala dinner and get wider visibility. The dinner will take place on October 26 at the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai
Two awards will be distributed at the gala dinner: the "Ethical Finance Initiative Award" which promotes emerging and existing talent providing ethical financial solutions or initiatives that can be implemented within the financial sector, with a prize of $100,000 awarded. Also, the "Lifetime Achievement Award" celebrating an outstanding individual or institution that has shaped the world of financial services using a positive approach and ethical principles, with an award of $25,000.
If you’d like to attend the gala dinner, make sure to register here before October 24.
