Gauging the Industry Pulse: The Launch of the Ernst & Young
Islamic Funds & Investments Report 2010

Despite the setback of the global economic crisis, the fundamentals of the Islamic investments industry remain strong. With almost USD50 billion in fund assets under management and a large, expanding and untapped Muslim population, there are likely to be considerable opportunities in the future.

The Islamic Funds & Investments Report (IFIR 2010), now entering its 4th annual edition, has rapidly established itself as an indispensable reference resource for CEOs looking for meaningful  insights  into
the leading-edge trends that are  shaping  the future the Islamic investments landscape.

Last year's Report provided an in-depth analysis of the impact of the global economic crisis on the Islamic funds landscape, with key recommendations for industry leaders on surviving and adapting in a downturn. The Report concluded with unique insights on key investor segments, assets classes, and products as well as competition and business model shifts. IFIR 2010 will revisit these findings, address the changes that have happened as the current recessionary environment gives way to cautious optimism, an assessment of how the industry leaders have fared, and offer insights that will kick start new business strategies in the Shari'ah-compliant investments industry. Ernst & Young's internationally acclaimed Islamic Financial Services Group will again lead the research project and the IFIR is exclusively launched onsite at the World Islamic Funds & Capital Markets Conference.
