Good Afternoon,

A recent article in Emirates Business 24/7 caught my attention on Islamic Finance. The article titled “Islamic Finance can cash in on demand for Infrastructure” clearly explains the fact that there is a huge funding potential for infrastructure projects through Shari’ah –compliant financing both in the region as well as globally. What a perfect timing for this article. As the IIFF – London agenda has been thoroughly researched, their will be a special focus on this topic both at the conference and through a one day workshop.

• Workshop A - Successfully Understanding And Applying Shari'ah Compliant Project Finance Structures • Workshop B - Structuring Islamic Real Estate Deals I’m pleased to announce The 18th International Islamic Finance Forum (IIFF) will be held in scenic London for the first time ever at Grange St Paul’s Hotel from 18 – 21 January 2010.

I’m sure you would agree that Islamic finance has been receiving more attention in the recent years as the market has evolved from simple low-return instruments to more sophisticated financial products.

In Europe and especially London, many new Shari’ah compliant alternative asset classes are gaining attention by both Islamic and non-Islamic issuers who are seeking to take advantage of the increased liquidity in the Islamic world. It’s been my sincere attempt to make this IIFF event a unique experience offering ample learning and networking opportunities.

In this endeavor I have ensured that you are updated with NEW and HOT topics for this market. So what’s NEW at IIFF – London 2010?

• BRAND New Keynote Addresses by Prof. Tariq Ramadan, Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies at Oxford University as well as Dr. Muhammad Abdul Bari Secretary General at The Muslim Council of Britain • BRAND New Research Study on Islamic banks treasury management • Capturing NEW MARKETS emerging as HOT destinations for Islamic finance • Addressing the potential for successful Sukuk comeback • Reaping benefits from the new Islamic alternative asset management classes: including Islamic real estate funds and private equity and the growing surge in Islamic derivatives • Emergence of sustainability into Islamic products • Strengthening Takaful products to compete with insurance products in the fast increasing Islamic finance – examining the growth and potential of Takaful

I am sure you will agree that there is no better way than this forum to ensure that you are fully up to date with the latest in Islamic finance and banking initiatives in the region.
