CIBAFI'S Global Islamic Bankers' Survey 2019


In succession to 3 editions of the Global Islamic Bankers’ Survey Report (GIBS), CIBAFI is pleased to present its 4th GIBS Report aiming to measure the pulse of the industry and monitor Islamic bankers’ perspectives on the future of the industry in the coming years.

The theme of GIBS 2019 is “Sustainability, Growth Drivers, and the Regulatory Challenge’’. It addresses the issues facing financial institutions in the coming years, the necessary factors for business growth and the regulatory restraints that constrain them.

This year, the report also addresses particularly the contribution that Islamic banking is making to sustainable development as embodied in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). It features a special article by the United Nations outlining the current financing gap of the UN agenda and the role of Islamic finance as an alternative mode of financing.

GIBS 2019 presents the views of 106 CEOs of Islamic banks from 33 different countries.

The survey is grouped into four main parts:

  • Islamic Banking Confidence Index
  • Islamic Banking Risk Dashboard
  • Islamic Banking Key Growth Drivers’ Monitor
  • Regulatory Framework and Main Challenges
