In the Islamic industry, more than any other industry, trust is paramount. The ongoing trust of people throughout the world is earned by compliance with law, social norms, and internal corporate regulations, by respect for local culture, customs and for human rights, and by conduct based on strong ethical values.
Our Corporate Governance – ISFIN Code of Conduct is the guide for ethical conduct for the day-to-day work of each and every staff and executive at ISFIN. It has been made available to all ISFIN partner firms.
Our products and services should make ISFIN more useful for all our users. We have many different types of users (staff, partners, clients, sponsors), from individuals to large businesses, but one guiding principle: "Is what we are offering useful?"
In the advisory sector, confidentiality is paramount. ISFIN’s "confidential information" includes financial, product, a Corporate Partner's or a client’s information. ISFIN ensures that confidential company and user material stays that way. Disclosure of sensitive information should be on a "need to know" basis and only under a non-disclosure agreement. In addition, ISFIN may require a prior security assessment of the outside party that is to receive the confidential information.
Caring for the environment, health, and safety
Deeply aware of corporate responsibility for preservation of the global environment, irreplaceable for humankind, ISFIN conducts every phase of corporate operation, use, and disposal, with consideration and care for the environment, safety, and health.
