By 2015, the MENA Islamic banking industry is projected to be worth $1 trillion, which represents a significant year on year growth in the recent past and bodes well for the future.

As the market share of Islamic banks (compared to conventional banks) grows and they begin to compete for mainstream customers, there is going to be increasing assessment of the:

  • Performance of all Islamic finance institutions and the regulatory requirements across the sector
  • Way Islamic finance can help the global financial crisis including Islamic financing of projects
  • Variety and performance of Islamic financial products on offer and how they will change as more people become open to Islamic banking and insurance

Unlike its conventional counterpart, the core of Islamic banking lies in religious teachings and modern-day products and services have to be consistent with the principles of sharia law.

It is therefore important to get a global prospective on how the Islamic banking and services sector is performing around the world and how your products and services can be benchmarked.
 

The Islamic market is about 1.8 billion consumers and worth more than 2 trillion dollars. This constitutes an enormous market where Islamic values help shape the societal structures, culture and legal norms that influence consumer preferences and behaviour.

In many cases, Islamic customers and businesses think and act outside the conventions of ‘Western Business’ theory and practice.

The chief objective of the forthcoming conference is to assess the future of this sector, taking note of the historic events that have been unfolding in the world generally, and, more particularly, in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Matters relating to government policy, raising new finance, regulation, Sharia-compliant financial instruments, corporate performance, and acceptability of Islamic products will be analyzed and discussed in depth.
