Director Islamic Finance

About Dr Imran Lum

I look after the award-winning Islamic finance business for the National Australia Bank’s Business and Private Bank where I specialise in structuring Islamic finance transactions in Australia. I was appointed by the Foreign Minister to the Board of the Australia-ASEAN Council, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and through this role, I seek to help people build relationships across Southeast Asia.

Through my work in academia, I was appointed as an Honorary Research Fellow at the Australian Catholic University and I have recently written a book titled ‘A Comparative Study of Islamic Finance in Australia and the UK’ which will be published by Routledge in September 2021. In the community space, I’m one of the Co-Founders of Markaz and I’m passionate about teaching Arabic. Check out my free online learning platform and Arabic podcasts in the links below.

I was honoured to be ranked in ‘The top 500 people who make the Islamic Economy’ by ISLAMICA 500 for three years (2017-2019) and in 2019, was named as one of the 40 Under 40 Most Influential Asian Australians and awarded the winner of the ‘Corporate’ category.
