Oxford Business Group is pleased to announce our media partnership with the Islamic Finance news Roadshow Singapore which will be held on 13th March, in Singapore. In this respect we send you the following message from the conference organisers:
You are cordially invited to attend the :
Islamic Finance news Roadshow Singapore
Date: 13th March 2012 Time: 08:00 - 16:00
Venue: Singapore Management University, Singapore
In a bid to diversify its economy, increase trade and investments with the Middle East, and claim its position as an Islamic finance hub alongside its current status as a financial hub, Singapore is ramping up efforts to become a global player in Islamic finance. Established financial regulations and infrastructure and a supportive regulator are also essential elements already present in the Singaporean financial landscape to boost the growth of Islamic finance in the country.
With new developments on the regulatory front in 2011 concerning tax treatments on Murabahah transactions and further clarification on income tax, stamp duty and GST treatment on Islamic financing facilities, it is evident that the country's regulator is on course to realizing its goal of becoming an Islamic finance-friendly jurisdiction. Industry players anticipate more progress in the country's Islamic capital markets on the back of various successes over the last few years; including the Monetary Authority of Singapore's US$145 million Sukuk issuance in 2009, Danga Capital's US$600 million trust certificates and the establishment of Sabana REIT- the world's largest Shariah compliant real estate investment trust by assets.
In recognition of these developments, Islamic Finance news (IFN) will host the IFN Roadshow Singapore on the 13thMarch 2012 at the Singapore Management University. The fully interactive event is designed to generate ideas, fresh views and concrete plans to exploit Islamic finance opportunities in the country.
Covering a wide spectrum of topics pertinent to issuers and investors, the IFN Roadshow Singapore will see prominent industry players addressing topics on the development of the Singaporean Islamic capital markets, investment trends and opportunities, the future of asset and wealth management and regulatory and tax hurdles.
Delegates can interact via regular question and answer sessions as well as during networking sessions which will directly support the development of Islamic finance in Singapore. Attendance, while FREE, is by invitation only and opens to those who register and have an active interest in this fast growing industry.
We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you to this event and look forward to hearing from you.
