About The Forum
Returning to the US for the fifth time, IFN Americas Forum 2019 will offer practitioners a unique chance to discover, discuss and dissect the opportunities for Islamic finance across some of the world’s most populous and influential countries.
Expanding for the first time in 2018 to incorporate the exciting prospects across Latin and South America as well as the US, the 2019 event will host regulators, practitioners, investors and other interested parties to explore the newest developments across both continents.
Building on the success of previous years, and leveraging the business-friendly atmosphere of the new administration, the US has a flourishing Islamic investment sector offering an attractive location for Shariah compliant funds seeking a safe haven from domestic geopolitical risk.

IFN US Forum 2017 will be the preeminent event for Islamic finance opportunities in the western hemisphere, as the forum returns for its third installation.
The US features pockets of possibilities for the Shariah compliant investment sector to flourish, especially since the financial crisis almost a decade ago highlighted the growing need for greater transparency in financial transactions among large financial institutions. IFN US Forum will offer delegates access and insight into efforts being taken by industry players and market makers within the US in developing Islamic financial products, as well as the lucrative opportunities for domestic and foreign investors interested in making Shariah compliant investments into the country.
The forum will bring together key industry players, asset and fund managers and financial intermediaries in the US in another exciting IFN-led event, as they discuss the Shariah compliant landscape, ranging from innovative real estate deals to agriculture and livestock investments.
As Islamic banking continues its expansion into mainstream US finance, it is important that Islamic business leaders come together and engage in meaningful dialogue to learn from each other’s experience. The IFN team facilitated first-class event where delegates and panelists were able to share new methods, examine case studies and build fellowship. It was truly a pleasure to participate in the IFN US Forum and I look forward to future involvement.
I really enjoyed attending the IFN US Forum 2016; a lot of important topics affecting Islamic finance were covered comprehensively by a select group of seasoned panelists. Looking forward to attending the next one.
Being a part of the IFN US Forum as both a panel participant and an attendee was incredibly insightful and valuable. The collective knowledge, experience and expertise of the attendees and speakers offered a meaningful opportunity to learn not only about current trends but timely insights on best practices and lessons learned. I look forward to the next upcoming conference.
Good conference and quite impressive. I had to run and attended for a short time. Well done!
