Sukuk Structuring
Date: 8th & 9th November 2018 Venue: InterContinental Kuala Lumpur

The Sukuk market has evolved significantly in the last 20 years. New and exciting structures have emerged to address the economic and financial interests of both Sukuk originators as well as Sukuk investors. However, a tension exists between this objective, and conformity with Shariah principles. In order to satisfy market demand, many Sukuk are structured to provide cash returns resembling conventional products. Some financial obligations within these structures may not only compromise a stricter application of Shariah principles, but lead to important valuation, risk, and accounting outcomes that are less well understood.

This course provides delegates with an invaluable opportunity to understand Sukuk across a range of inter-related financial disciplines. By taking a multi-disciplinary approach to the course, delegates are given an opportunity to not only complement and expand upon their existing knowledge of Sukuk, but to achieve a wider appreciation of why, and how, Sukuk are viewed differently by other key stake holders in the Sukuk market, for example ratings analysts, investors, and origination teams.

The course will include a high level of interactive discussion, analysis of case studies, and thorough instruction in the treatment of Sukuk for structuring, valuation, risk management, and accounting purposes. Knowledge gained from the course is directly applicable in practice.
