On 25 June, the UK government confirmed its ambition to become the western hub for Islamic finance by issuing sovereign Sukuk, the Islamic equivalent of a bond. The UK is the first country outside the Islamic world to do so. With Islamic investors providing alternative sources of funding, there are clear opportunities for the UK market, but there are also considerations and challenges surrounding this evolving industry.
Please join us for a one-hour seminar to discuss the key principles of Islamic finance, including an introduction to basic principles, compliance requirements, structuring considerations, and Islamic finance’s role as a finance and investment conduit into UK-based and international corporations.
Topics will include:
Ayman Khaleq, Presenter
