International Banking Journal Appoints Tahir Ashraf as Editorial Board Member
It gives me great pleasure to announce that I have been appointed on to the Editorial Board of a prestigious global banking law journal. Part of the LexisNexis family the ‘Butterworths Journal of International Banking and Financial Law‘ (JIBFL) has published my appointment in the journals too. The appointment follows my small article on which was published in this prestigious Islamic Banking and the EU Bank recovery and Resolution Directive which came into force last year.
International Banking Law – An Evolving Landscape
I am thankful and grateful for the recognition that this appointment brings to my work in global banking matters. I will also be writing about other issues impacting upon international banking as well as commenting on developing areas. I had the pleasure of being expressly commissioned to write about a topic on international banking within the EU. The article is entitled ‘To bail-in or bail-out? That is the question: Islamic Investment Banking Bonds’. The LexisNexis webpage states that the international banking law journal is a highly regarded and authoritative journal providing practitioners with the very latest developments in banking and financial law internationally. It is of interest to all bankers and lawyers in private and corporate practice.’
International Banking – Solutions for Climate Change
I was recently invited as a public speaker at the 27th Annual Motor Law conference to deliver a talk to other commercial lawyers. The subject of my talk was Emissions Legislation: A Primer for Commercial Lawyers. As part of the talk I explored briefly the Toyota Green Bond and of course investor appetite for greener investments.
These are therefore undoubtedly exciting times. Like many 2016 international banking and finance is an area likely to see a substantial amount of growth. This is particularly noticeable by virtue of the growth investor interest within the climate change sector and green bonds.
