Globally Governments are looking to develop their Islamic finance sector by changing regulations to attract investors who can only put their money in Sharia-compliant assets. The UK government, as the facilitator of Islamic finance in the UK, has played an admirable role in this.

World Islamic Finance Conference is the third Islamic Finance related conference launched by Fleming Gulf Dubai. World Islamic Retail Banking Conference which is annually attended by over 200 delegates and Asia Islamic Banking Conference which was supported by Malaysia International Islamic Financial Centre (MIFC). These Annual Conferences have been successfully launched in Dubai and Kuala Lumpur respectively.

We all will surely agree that Islamic Finance is sure to stay and grow in Europe. Educating the people is important, as without this information, Islamic Finance shall just be the preferred choice of few. WIFC (UK) is strategically located, keeping in mind the excellent Government support for boosting the Islamic Finance Growth in the region. It has been an endeavour to pack the two days conference with Global and Regional perspectives, towards providing the ‘Big’ picture to participants.
