The Islamic Finance news Roadshow    
2010 witnessed somewhat of a turnaround in the financial markets. Some had predicted a lengthier recession, some a double dip and some stagnation. Fortunately for all involved, we witnessed a rebound which couldn’t have come soon enough.

Issuers felt comfortable to dip their toes in the water and seek fresh capital. And they were welcomed with open arms by investors, especially from the Middle East and Asia, willing to trust their instincts.

Although Shariah compliant capital raising was witnessed in numerous markets, some for the first time, it was Southeast Asia which took the lead. Malaysia, which continues to flourish in this space, again showed its might and powered ahead with numerous groundbreaking deals along with the myriad of smaller transactions. Additionally, Indonesia pressed ahead with its Islamic issuances giving hope to the world’s most Muslim populated country. Although notable deals cannot yet be claimed, Brunei, Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand all built on their already impressive capabilities.

These are all markets we will visiting in 2011, in addition to Egypt and Turkey, both of which are now being recognized, and rightfully so, as major potential participants in the Islamic finance industry. Australia, a market many would not have considered a potential player, is making phenomenal strides to becoming a centre for Islamic finance. Following a hugely successful event in Sydney in 2010, we’ll be visiting Melbourne in 2011. Finally, but not least we'll be returning to North America in 2011 with stops in both Toronto and New York.

For the past 6 years Islamic Finance news has been reaching out and educating new markets. For the past three years the educational IFN Roadshow, in key developing Islamic financial markets, has been an overwhelming success. The IFN 2011 Roadshow will be stronger than ever before.

For 2011, 12 key markets have been scheduled to host an IFN Roadshow. These markets are those which you, our clients, have suggested we need to focus. During the course of the year, other locations may be added, and on that note we do invite you to offer suggestions.

  Welcome to the much anticipated launch of the IFN Europe Forum.

Following the phenomenal success of the annual IFN Asia Forum, which celebrated its 5th anniversary in 2010, the IFN Forum concept is now taking its first step into a new market, and where better than Europe?

With an expected audience of 750 during the two-day event, IFN Europe 2011 will instantly become the largest annual event on European shores.

The Issuers & Investors concept will see the first day focusing on and targeted towards the issuer community, whilst the second day will be for the investors. Two very separate and distinct days ensuring nobody need attend more than one day – another reason why this concept is unique.

More sessions, topics, speakers and coverage than seen before in Europe
