Navigating the IFR Blog

There are various ways to navigate this blog, and in this regard we have opted to include more than one device to help you.  At the top of the page you will see navigation tabs for easy reference of the core themes (Structures, Resources, Education, LinkedIn Forum) as well as a Contact Us link.  On top of this post you will see another navigation box that summarizes some of the noteworthy posts from these same categories (Structures, Resources, Education, LinkedIn Forum) as well as some of the key topics covered.

On the left hand side of the screen you will find a Main Menu with some brief descriptors, below this you will find the historical Archive of all posts, further down is a box that allows you to search posts by Keywords & Topics.  Afterwards you will encounter the Blogroll (websites with RSS feeds) and another list of External Links (websites without RSS feeds).  Further down you will find a section with links to research papers from conventional finance, which we term Conventional Wisdom.

On the right hand side column you will find several sections that breakdown content as follows: Multimedia (videos, webcasts, and other interactive content); Structures & Discussions (original blog content, specific structures and other relevant posts); Industry Reports & Articles (third party content - from newsletters, editorials to more elaborate industry analysis); and Academic Papers & Case Studies (for empirical studies and  scientifically-based material).  Furthermore, you will find boxlets with useful resources such as the published standards from the IFSB and various research papers from ISRA.

At the end of each individual post you will also have an option to share posts in any social media portal that you use (facebook, blogger, linkedin, etc).  At the very bottom of the blog you will also see further summaries from various news aggregators (Opalesque, IFIS, other blogs, etc).

As always, we welcome your feedback and comments on ways to make it easier to navigate the site.
