More than 45 of the world’s leading banking and financial institutions will gather in Dubai for the first International Islamic Finance Forum, to be held from the 17th to the 19th of March 2002. The forum, organised by the Institute for International Research (IIR), in association with iHilal Financial Services, Dow Jones Indexes, and Saudi Economic Development Company (SEDCO) will discuss issues relevant to the Islamic investment industry both globally and locally.

“As they are competing with a monolithic, conventional banking industry, professionals in the Islamic financing arena must streamline procedures, develop innovative products, and maintain state-of-the-art technology to stay ahead and thrive,” said Ramzi Abu Khadra, CEO of iHilal Financial Services.

A panel of experts and scholars in the Islamic financial industry will exchange views on capital markets, equity funds, retail and commercial banking, regulatory frameworks, virtual finance, liquidity and risk security, and private equity. In addition, the Forum invites ‘New Voices’ from all over the globe to participate in what they see as important new additions to the Islamic financial arena. The forum will also welcome Islamic finance research papers from students at all levels of study and award an award of $5000 to the best paper.
