World Islamic Funds & Financial Markets Conference













Broadening the Base of Issuers & Investors:Expanding the Global Footprint of Islamic Financial Markets

A Special Edition of WIFFMC: Celebrating 10 Years of Growth, Excellence & Innovation in theGlobal Islamic Investments Industry

For a decade now the annual World Islamic Funds and Financial Markets Conference (WIFFMC) has been at the forefront of the global Islamic investments industry, firmly establishing its reputation as the world's largest and most influential gathering of leaders in the Shari'ah-compliant asset management and Sukuk markets. From less than a 100 delegates at its launch way back in 2005, the special edition 10th Anniversary of the World Islamic Funds and Financial Markets Conference (WIFFMC 2014), to be held in the Kingdom of Bahrain on the 19th & 20th May 2014, under the official patronage of the Central Bank of Bahrain, is set to continue this tradition of supporting growth, excellence and innovation in the global Islamic financial markets - and is poised to break new records in 2014 with more than 400 attendees representing over 200 leading global organizations set to join more than 40 international speakers and thought leaders for a very special and unique event that will chart a new road map for the further growth and development of the dynamic Islamic funds and investments industry.


WIFFMC 2014: Expanding the Global Footprint of Islamic Financial Markets

The critical discussions at last year's WIFFMC 2013 highlighted that investor appetite for Shari'ah-compliant investment options is pushing the Islamic funds and investments industry into the mainstream and the increasing demand for quality Sukuk, in particular, has played a key role in this progress. Recent reports and industry estimates project that Sukuk issuance worldwide is set to cross US$100 billion again this year. Though there has been a significant spike in the demand for Islamic investment alternatives, supply is still lagging behind and a key challenge that the Islamic investments and asset management industry is facing at the moment is a lack of diversity.

However, with the GCC and Malaysia continuing to lead the way in driving the growth of Shari'ah-compliant investment products, the industry's successful future can be significantly enhanced by broadening the base of issuers and investors, building scale within the industry - and by initiatives supporting the further internationalization of Islamic financial markets.

Now in its 10th anniversary edition, the World Islamic Funds and Financial Markets Conference is set to gather key decision-makers from the leading international Islamic financial institutions, regulatory agencies, consultancies and investment firms for discussions that will seek to unlock new growth opportunities in the global Islamic funds and investments market. Key topics that will be discussed at WIFFMC 2014 include:

  • Attracting More International Investors to Islamic Financial Markets
  • Assessing Regulatory Initiatives to Improve Stability and Expand the Horizons for Islamic Investments
  • Building Scale in the Islamic Asset Management Industry: What can be Done?
  • Growing AuM: How can more Institutional Investors be Attracted to Shari'ah-Compliant Funds?
  • Innovation in Islamic Capital Markets: Broadening the Breadth and Depth of Shari'ah-Compliant Products Beyond Sukuk
  • Sukuk: Broadening the Base of Issuers and Investors and Attracting More International Players
  • Liquidity: How Successful are New Initiatives to Improve Liquidity? What Else Needs to be Done?
