Turkish PM to address Islamic Finance Summit

Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyib Erdoğan and leaders in Islamic finance from across the globe will address international delegates at the Leaders in Islamic Finance Summit.

The event will be held in Turkey from May 26 to 29.

This is the first time that such a significant conference on Islamic finance is being held in Turkey.

The gathering of high level government speakers as well as the most respected Shariah scholars, including Shaikh Nizam Yaquby, promises an agenda-setting conference that is sure to attract global attention.

The summit has been developed by the International Quality & Productivity Centre  (IQPC), the global providers of tailored, industry-driven conferences in collaboration with an elite international advisory board that includes senior representatives from the European Union Commission to the Turkish Parliament, Dow Jones, Al Salam Bank, Credit Suisse, Heritage Fiduciary Services, GMD Global Advisors and HSBC Amanah.

“With substantial innovation, increasing competition and strong growth in key markets and products segments, the Islamic finance industry is becoming truly global, and increased interest and opportunities are emerging in non-Islamic regions,” said divisional director of finance IQ, IQPC Middle East Christianna Tsiterou.

Topics under discussion will include global expansion and implications on a geo-political level, opportunities for Islamic finance in emerging markets, exploring the potential in global markets (funds and new product developments) and the appeal of Islamic structures to investors.

Unicorn Investment Bank, Bahrain, will be leading an interactive workshop within the framework of the summit on ‘Innovations in Structuring Sukuk’.

The summit will also feature a special session on financing infrastructure projects in Turkey through alternative finance, to be moderated and attended by senior representatives of the Turkish government.

  2. Personally, I fear Islamic Finance as a way to enforce Shariah Law on unsuspecting Americans. Look at my blog re: Churchs Chicken

  3. No one is enforcing Shariah Law on any one. Islamic Finance has become a recognized mode of finance the world over, and its unprecedented growth in the current sub-prime scenario has shown the benefit that comes out of asset-backed financing to any investor–Muslim or non-Muslim. Islamic banks in the US are operating under licenses issued by the authorities and are being regulated by the same authorities … How can any one claim that Shariah is being imposed? They have a legal status. It is up to the investor to choose whatever mode of financing he prefers — conventional or Islamic.

    As for the Church’s Chicken lawsuit, I don’t have sufficient knowledge to comment, but suffice it to say that even if the bank were to be proved guilty, it does not undermine Islamic Finance as a whole. The owners and the bank’s policies are to be blamed.
