IFN has helped to bring together market shakers of the Islamic finance industry globally. The yearly events gather a strong crowd especially in Kuala Lumpur, the epicenter of Islamic finance globally. The forum promotes the exchange of views and ideas by key representatives worldwide and is envisaged to help drive the dvelopment of Islamic finance.
The IFN Investor Forum certainly exceeded my expectations, both as a delegate and sponsor.Drawing broad attendance, with representation from most continents, the morning sessions offered an in-depth evaluation of investment trends (ranging from traditional through to new asset classes including fintech), investor strategies and perceived market challenges. The afternoon gave attention to the broader SRI industry and potential for collaboration between Islamic and other subsets of responsible and ethical investment. This was a theme that featured through the main event, but was given particular focus within a breakout stream delivered by members of the board of trustees of the Responsible Finance Institute. In terms of content, networking and organization, this ranks among the most informative and engaging events of the Islamic financial calendar. I look forward to the next one.
It was a great pleasure to be able to contribute and participate in another successful IFN conference. As always, IFN is at the forefront discussing relevant and advanced topics for the benefit of the Islamic finance industry. Keep up the excellent work.
The IFN conference was well organized as always with a fantastic venue choice, great catering and highly attended. All the panels and presentations were very informative with contributions from highly educated and experienced professionals from the industry. The panel with my involvement was no exception with diversified expertise to ensure robust and conflicting discussions to ensure all opinions were presented. I cannot speak highly enough of the event and organizers and look forward to attending again.
