Al Rayan Bank sponsors Muslim Lifestyle Expo 2016
Al Rayan Bank has announced that it will continue its sponsorship of the Muslim Lifestyle Expo – the UK’s largest Muslim lifestyle event – for the second year. The inclusive event features more than 100 exhibitors from 12 countries, and celebrates the global Muslim lifestyle with themes spanning finance, cooking, fashion, art, sport and business. The Muslim Lifestyle Expo will take place on 29 – 30 October 2016 at Event City, Manchester.
From stand 115, Al Rayan Bank will be showcasing its range of Sharia compliant banking products and services, which includes Sharia compliant home and property finance, savings and current accounts.
Saquib Ismail, Senior Sales Manager, Al Rayan Bank, said: “We’re thrilled to be supporting the Muslim Lifestyle Expo again this year. As pioneers of Islamic finance in the UK, the Expo gives us the perfect opportunity to educate and inform about the importance of Sharia compliant finance for Muslims: how it operates, and how our products and services differ from those offered by conventional banks. We’re looking forward to taking the opportunity to talk and listen to existing and potential customers.”
Al Rayan Bank sponsored the inaugural Muslim Lifestyle Expo in 2015 which featured 86 exhibitors and attracted 6,800 visitors; the event was recognised by the British Muslim awards, where it won an award for Services to Creativity & Technology.
Al Rayan Bank is dedicated to strong, faith-based ethics and great customer service. The first wholly Sharia compliant retail bank in the UK, it currently has over 70,000 retail, business and premier customers and has earned a reputation for providing innovative products which appeal to people of any faith.
The Bank has been recognised as an ethical alternative to conventional banks by the Move Your Money campaign and Ethical Consumer magazine, which places Al Rayan Bank in the top ten of ethical current account providers. The Bank is also an accredited ‘Living Wage Employer’, voluntarily opting to pay their employees a ‘Living Wage’ which is significantly higher than the current minimum wage and the new compulsory National Living Wage, to be introduced in 2016.
As an independent UK bank, Al Rayan Bank is authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority, regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority and is a member of Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
