Dr Hurriyah El Islamy




The winner of the Bank Indonesia Award (2018) as the Best Global and National Islamic Finance Proponent and the Tokoh Alumni IIUM Award (2020), Dr El Islamy has been inventing and contributing to Islamic finance globally since the industry was at the state of its infancy. With over 26 years of
professional experience, her legacy spans over many aspects of Islamic finance, Islamic banking and capital markets as well as commercial activities and emerging technologies. She was the lead counsel for major transactions and for major financial and global institutions. She has successfully led and/or be part of the team that achieved the objectives and often with innovative approach
that brought novelty to the industry. In addition to being a practitioner with impact, she had also drafted laws and regulations for several countries that drew the face and the state of those nations today. Despite the intensity of her contributions to the industry, her contributions and legacy in form of
academic publications, public speech, etc. are equally as strong. Her resume records some of those achievements; the award, her high-level appointment and prestige engagement worldwide speak for her repute and track record
