Morocco as a financial hub to Africa: How can the UK benefit from the Moroccan financial market?


Monday 4 January 2016



The British Chamber of Commerce for Morocco is hosting a webinar about financial services in the Moroccan market.

Morocco has well-earned a reputation for political stability in the MENA area as it has deliberately chose a constructive relationship with the West (United States and Europe). The country enjoys a unique relationship with the EU evidenced by the “advanced status” it was granted back in 2008.

Having recently joined the Global Financial Centres Index (ranked 62nd in the world and second in Africa) the Casablanca Finance City (‘CFC’) initiative in Morocco, is putting itself forward as the up to date financial hub that the continent so badly needs.

This webinar will tackle three main subject within the Moroccan financial market. First, we will talk about the Moroccan financial market regulations and challenges. Then, we will go into more specific topics by talking about the role of Casablanca Finance city in making Morocco a better performing financial market and a gateway to Africa.

We will finish the webinar with a discussion about Islamic Finance and Crowd Funding. Satisfying the ambitions of CFC require a clear and operational legal framework.
