Mark Your Calendar! The 6th Annual World Islamic Funds & Capital Markets Conference Explores Winning Business Models Realigned to New Economic Realities

The current recessionary environment has forced the leaders of international & regional financial institutions to fundamentally re-think and adapt their business models and realign them to the new economic realities. The 6th Annual World Islamic Funds & Capital Markets Conference (WIFCMC 2010) could not come at a more opportune time. In fact, WIFCMC 2010 will be the most crucial meeting in its 6 years of history as more than 400 leaders in the global Islamic investments industry gather to plot new growth horizons and forge winning business models fully in tune with the new economic realities of the Shari'ah-compliant investments market.

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.

Again being held in strategic partnership with the Central Bank of Bahrain, WIFCMC has over the past 6 years firmly established itself as the world's largest gathering of Islamic investment leaders. WIFCMC 2010 has a dynamic and interactive structure, which encourages debate and active audience participation to facilitate rich substantive discussions.

Key topics that will be discussed at The World Islamic Funds & Capital Markets Conference 2010 include the following:

  • Regenerating growth in Islamic capital markets
