Date: 21st November 2017 Venue: Landmark Amman Hotel & Conference Centre, Jordan

Growing in influence, Jordan is a market to be reckoned with when it comes to new opportunities in the Islamic space, and the brand new IFN Jordan Forum will be the main avenue to explore such opportunities.

As the Hashemite Kingdom makes a number of strides in stabilizing its economy after the wider regional instability took a slight toll on its progress, Jordanian regulators and state-backed entities have been particularly active in pushing the Islamic finance agenda in 2016, with the Central Bank of Jordan issuing the country’s first sovereign Sukuk as well as facilitating the auction of a government-backed Sukuk Murabahah facility in 2015.

Islamic banks have also been active in partaking in the financing of green power schemes across the country. Our access to the local landscape and players navigating the country’s journey makes IFN Jordan Forum in 2017 the essential event for those interested in the market.
