Islamic finance forum to discuss Shariah growth opps
Wednesday, 3 April 2013 12:40pm

The Amanie Australian Islamic Finance Forum will be held at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Melbourne on 16 April.

Amanie Advisors Australia has recently become one of the first specialist Shariah advisory bodies to be granted an AFSL licence this country.

Far from being a niche segment of the market, Islamic investment principles are fast becoming increasing commonplace within large investment structures.

There were thought to be around $1 trillion worth of Shariah compliant assets available worldwide, as at April 2012 and the likes of Malaysia, Indonesia, Qatar, Bahrain and United Arab Emirates' governments continue to issue investment grade Shariah bonds.

To benefit from the growing theme, local investment houses and financial planning firms are designing products and developing ways of attracting clients who prefer to invest in Shariah compliant structures.

The one-day forum will bring together senior industry figures, global Islamic investors, Islamic bankers and top Shariah scholars. The topics will focus on newly created capital market opportunities in Australia and what would be the best approach to create the value proposition for investors.

Specifically, the forum will discuss the current state of the Sukuk market, winning strategies for distributing funds within new markets, and issues facing new Islamic banking environment in Australia such as asset-liability management and treasury.

"One would rightly consider this event as a brilliant opportunity to learn about the latest developments and become a part of this growing market, as well as a perfect opportunity to network with leading industry voices, and the promotion of various investment products," said Amanie Advisors Australia.

Speakers at the forum include National Australia Bank associate director of Islamic capital markets Imran Lum, National Stock Exchange of Australia chief executive Emlyn Scott and chairman of Amanie Advisors Group Dr. Mohd Daud Bakar.

Minister for financial services and superannuation Bill Shorten will also be in attendance.
