Why Islamic Finance and why Hong Kong?

Hong Kong is one of the world’s fastest-growing major economies with an average annualized growth rate of 10% over the last three decades. For generations the territory has been viewed as an important gateway into the People’s Republic of China (PRC), and in more recent times, for Islamic finance. Significantly, changes to legislation have allowed for the issuance of Hong Kong’s first sovereign Sukuk - US$1billion issuance in 2014 - which created an important international benchmark. Hong Kong recently announced its second sovereign Sukuk, thereby demonstrating significant governmental support to Islamic finance industry in Greater China.


What to expect?

  • The one-day seminar will address the opportunities and tackle the value propositions Islamic finance presents for Hong Kong and Greater China
  • Engaging and lively presentations from over ten world-renowned Islamic finance experts
  • Discuss the recent Sovereign Sukuk activity and what it means for capital raising in Greater China
  • Discover the potential and practical considerations of developing Islamic fund products


Why you should attend?

Given the determination of the Hong Kong’s government towards the inaugural and subsequent Sukuk issue, the potential of the People’s Republic of China’s population and the blossoming relationship between PRC and the developing Islamic financial markets, this REDmoney Seminar comes at an opportune time. Should you be involved in capital raising in Hong Kong, whether from the viewpoint of an issuer, regulator, consultant, book runner or arranger then this one day seminar has something for you. Use this opportunity to assess the potential and growth of Islamic finance in one of the fastest growing economies in the world, and understand the key issues inherent to the structure and use of Islamic finance products in China and beyond.
