09:05 – 09:20 Keynote Address
09:20 – 10:20 Mega Trends: Global and Regional Influencers for Islamic Finance and Investment
We examine and discuss key issues and themes influencing global Islamic finance and investment including political risk, the performance of the UK and European Islamic banking sector in the coming year, regulatory and supervisory frameworks, green finance and the ascendancy of FinTech – what will offer opportunity and what will disrupt? What is the latest assessment of Brexit and what does the panel expect to be the implications and opportunities for Islamic finance and investment?
10:20 – 11:00 Growth and Development of Islamic Capital Markets: Highlights and Opportunities
We discuss significant developments in domestic and overseas capital markets, including home purchase plan-backed securitisation programs in the UK and the Saudi Arabian syndicated loan program. We also discuss the opportunities for listings and important issues such as the Shariah-compliance of tradable debt instruments, ratings, and the development and deepening of domestic Islamic secondary markets.
Moderator: Khalid Howladar – Managing Director and Founder, Acreditus
11:00 – 11:30 Coffee and Networking
11:30 – 11:50 Hard Issues
Through a short, concise interview, we step outside the comfort zone and ask the tough questions the industry wants to hear.
11:50 – 12:30 Liquidity Issues and Supervision of Islamic Financial Institutions in Western Europe
What does the advancement of technology mean for financial institutions in Malaysia and the Asian region? What role will cryptocurrencies play in the global Islamic finance industry and will asset-linked coins feature in the corporate fundraising process? We assess the latest developments in fintech and analyze likely industry shifts, regulation and developments in product and delivery channels.
12:30 – 12:45 Presentation
12:45 – 14:00 Luncheon
14:00 – 14:40 Fintech, Cryptocurrencies and Initial Coin Offerings
We discuss the role of fintech and ICOs in today's banking and capital raising environments. What are the latest approaches to incorporating coin offerings and cryptocurrencies into developed regulatory frameworks? We assess the latest developments in fintech and analyse likely industry shifts, regulation and developments in product and delivery channels
14:40 – 15:20 Stewardship, Responsible Investing and the Asset Management Industry: Opportunities for Islamic Finance and Investment
We examine responsible, ethical investment, green finance in the UK and Europe, and identify the prospects for Islamic finance and investment to thrive in this active sector. What are Green bonds and Sukuk and how do they present a financing option for companies and industries focused on renewable and sustainable activities?
15:20 – 15:30 Presentation
15:30 – 16:30 Talking Islamic Asset Management
Through an experienced panel we discuss asset management in the UK and Western Europe. What’s next for real estate investment funds and REITs? Is there a bubble in private equity and should Islamic investors be wary of this as an asset class? Do Waqf-like structures provide an opportunity for the UK asset management industry? We also examine the potential for structured Shariah-compliant real estate investment into and out of the UK and Europe.
