In the News: Ethica Partners with iPORTAL Live

January 14, 2021 — Ethica Institute of Islamic Finance, the global training and certification institute, and iPORTAL, a new knowledge sharing portal for the Islamic economy, have entered into a partnerhship. Ethica provides iPORTAL with access to the award-winning CIFE and ACIFE programs as well as free resources for learning about Islamic finance.

iPORTAL is a Global Platform focusing on the digitalization of 10 sectors of the $3 trillion Islamic economy. iPORTAL.Live consists of an experienced team with over 100 years in Islamic Finance, Halal Industry, Waqf, Startups, Law, E-commerce, Content Management System, Social and Digital Media, and IT. To address the challenges in the Islamic economy is to build digital inclusion pathways for all the sectors on one platform in a meaningful way for all users to benefit.

Ethica’s Managing Director, Atif R. Khan, said, “When iPORTAL approached us we were already familiar with co-founder Rushdi Siddiqui’s string of successes: Dow Jones Islamic Market Index, Thomson Reuters Islamic Finance, Zilzar, and others. What made a partnership with iPORTAL even more appealing is the possibility of bringing together a fragmented Islamic economy into one location.”

iPORTAL’s Co-Founder, Rushdi Siddiqui, said, “When we started the iPORTAL journey last year, we identified partners we must work with, as they have been committed and contributing to knowledge 'leading' of Islamic finance and banking. Ethica Institute's on-going work of nearly 20 years to knowledge building and sharing is a model case study worthy of 'Harvard Business School.' We, at iPORTAL Live, are both humbled and honored to collaborate with Ethica on addressing the Islamic finance knowledge gap for the interested masses.”

Other partners include AAOIFI, Usmani & Co., Dinar Standard, and others.


AAOIFI officially recognizes Ethica’s award-winning Certified Islamic Finance Executive (CIFE) and Advanced CIFE (ACIFE) programs for continuing professional development (CPD) purposes. Further, Ethica grants AAOIFI Fellows exclusive discounts.


Ethica is also an Official AAOIFI Candidate Registration Center for the Certified Islamic Professional Accountant (CIPA) and Certified Shari'ah Advisor and Auditor (CSAA) programs. AAOIFI grants Ethica’s institutional and individual clients exclusive discounts and exemptions through this arrangement. AAOIFI and Ethica also jointly issue co-branded certificates in face-to-face and online training events. To learn more click here
