Islamic Finance: Building Bridges Across Asia and the Middle East at WIBC Asia 2014

Bridging the World of Islamic Finance
Expanding the Boundaries of Islamic Finance: Complementing Domestic Growth with International Linkages

Convened under the official support of the Monetary Authority of Singapore, last year’s 4th Annual World Islamic Banking Conference: Asia Summit (WIBC Asia 2013), which was held in Singapore on the 3rd till the 5th of June 2013, witnessed a record gathering of 523 international industry leaders representing over 250 leading international and regional organizations. This tremendous year-on-year growth and the overall success of WIBC Asia 2013 further confirmed the importance of this high-profile event in shaping the future of the Islamic banking and finance industry in Asia - and boosting linkages with other key international centres for Islamic finance.

To be held under the theme "Bridging the World of Islamic Finance – Expanding the Boundaries of Islamic Finance: Complementing Domestic Growth with International Linkages", WIBC Asia 2014 will build on this successful foundation as a large-scale international platform for enabling the further development of Islamic finance by bringing together industry leaders to explore and capitalize on exciting new opportunities in Asia and to foster new business partnerships with other key centres for Islamic finance, with a principal focus on forging stronger economic linkages with the Arabian Gulf.

With the support of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), the 5th Annual World Islamic Banking Conference: Asia Summit (WIBC Asia 2014) will be again held in Singapore on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of June 2014 - and we are anticipating an even larger audience of industry leaders seeking to capitalize on the high-growth prospects for Islamic finance across Asia.

Leading industry players are focusing on Asia as an increasingly attractive market for Islamic finance. To reap the full benefit of the region’s rapid expansion and robust development, there is a need to make further advances towards achieving global connectivity and deepening economic cooperation with other key centres for Islamic finance. In order to better facilitate cross-border relationships, more intensive international co-ordination of regulatory approaches and supervisory oversights, as well as collaboration amongst leading industry players, is needed. WIBC Asia 2014 will play a key role in building bridges for capital flows between Asia and the Middle East.

New Features at WIBC Asia 2014: The IIFM Briefing

In addition to the large-scale international participation and high-profile keynote speakers, this year will also see the formal addition of the pre-conference briefing to WIBC Asia 2014 on the 2nd of June presented by the International Islamic Financial Market (IIFM). Led by IIFM CEO, Ijlal Alvi, together with key members of the IIFM board and leading industry players, this briefing will provide the framework to boost the international growth of the industry through enabling product and documentation standardisation across jurisdictions.
