Distinguished Lecture Series: Mr Mohammed Amin
“Would Islamic Finance Have Prevented the Global Financial Crisis?”
Mohammed Amin currently serves as the UK Head of Islamic Finance at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, the largest accounting firm in the UK. Amin was born in Pakistan but has lived in the UK since 1952. Although his parents were both poor and illiterate, they believed passionately in the value of education. With their encouragement, Amin passed the 11+ examination and attended a state grammar school. He went on to study mathematics at Clare College, Cambridge. Currently, he is a member of HM Treasury’s Islamic Finance Experts Group, set up by the Economic Secretary to the Treasury to advise the Government on Islamic finance policy. In addition, Amin was included in the Muslim Power 100, a list of the hundred most influential Muslims in the UK, compiled by the Institute of Asian Professionals.
The talk took place on May 28 in Clare College, University of Cambridge.
