Major Islamic funds conference opens

Leading players, industry thought leaders and key regulators in the international Islamic investments and asset management industry will come together in Bahrain today for the start of a two-day conference.

The 9th Annual World Islamic Funds and Financial Markets Conference (WIFFMC 2013), is taking place in strategic partnership with the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB), organisers said.

More than 400 international industry leaders are expected to participate in critical discussions that will focus on “Broadening the Base of Investors and Issuers; and Boosting the International Growth of Islamic Capital Markets and Investments”.

The conference will open with a keynote address by CBB executive director for financial institutions supervision Abdul Rahman Mohammed Al Baker.

The recent acceleration in the Islamic funds and investments industry is set to grow further as governments and institutions in the Middle East, South East Asia and beyond increasingly seek Sharia-compliant instruments as a viable alternative for raising capital and also for diversifying their investment portfolio, he said.
