The annual Ethical Finance Innovation Challenge and Awards (EFICA) return in 2016 for the 4th time to inspire and assist initiatives that promote ethical and Islamic finance.

Thomson Reuters and Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank aspire to change people's lives for the better by highlighting the most innovative financial initiatives and giving them the support they need to grow and prosper.

During the past 3 years, EFICA has become a leading finance award selecting winners from more than 800 applications received from around the world and providing the opportunity for 19 finalists to present their initiatives at an EFICA gala dinner and get wider visibility.
