Introduction

Islamic Finance continues to attract interest in the City, with the amount of money involved amounting to £700 billion.* As this market is making the transition from niche to mainstream, the UK market is witnessing further demand by an increasingly affluent Muslim-investor population, for more diverse Islamic banking products in retail and investment banking. In order to stay ahead of the competition it is imperative for banks to achieve clarity within the blurring markets of Islamic and conventional products while also keeping apace with the supervision of new Islamic financial products such as Sukuk. The BBA in association with KPMG are pleased to bring together experts in Islamic finance from leading retail and investment banks as well as policy makers and legal practitioners to brief you on the latest developments. Benefit from key insights on Islamic mortgage lending and alternative investments for the UK market and its global potential for your business.
