Dear Richard,

The following event details have recently been posted at


Structuring Islamic Financial Products


The area of Islamic Finance has become the hotbed

within the banking and financial services industry.

The entry of Global banks such as HSBC, Citigroup,UBS and Deutsche Bank

to increasingly offer innovative and competitive Islamic financial products

in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East has taken the industry by storm.

The development of Islamic finance has had a positive impact

on the growth of supporting professions and industries with the need to

understand legal documentations, accounting and tax implications, corporate

governance frameworks, insurance and Takaful spin offs, consultancy needs and

many others. How can you position and improvise your core business activities in

the midst of these emerging trends in the evolving dynamic financial landscape?
