Renewed focus on interest-free finance sees one of the world's banking giants hire Ethica to deliver Islamic finance e-learning to thousands of its bankers. At a time in history when people are beginning to question the viability of interest-based banking - banks having triggered the entire financial mess - there is renewed focus on interest-free banking. Enter Islamic finance. In a hotly contested bid to deliver Islamic finance e-learning at one of the world's largest global banks, Dubai-based Ethica won the final mandate to train thousands of the bank's employees. The name of the banking giant remained under wraps but sources close to the deal said that bankers from 8 countries were slated to receive Ethica's training. (Press Release)
