M'sian scholars at HSBC global meet

Two Malaysian Shariah scholars took part in HSBC Amanah's third bi-annual meeting of its Global Shariah Advisory Board in Makkah recently. Dr Mohammed Daud Bakar and Dr Mohammad Akram Laldin, two familiar names in the Malaysian Islamic finance scene, sit on the HSBC Amanah's global board chaired by renowned Pakistani retired Supreme Court judge Sheikh Muhammad Taqi Usmani.
The meeting earlier this month was part of the international bank's continuous efforts to engage both Islamic scholars and bankers in a constructive dialogue about pressing issues and the challenges facing Islamic finance, HSBC Amanah said in a statement. HSBC Amanah is a global Islamic banking division of the HSBC Group. In Malaysia, it has set-up a wholly-owned subsidiary HSBC Amanah Malaysia Bhd when it received Bank Negara Malaysia's (BNM) approval to run an Islamic bank.
