"GFI to break new ground with first sukuk trading desk"

"Secondary trading in Islamic bonds promises earthly riches"

"Market Insight: Factoring the Almighty into bond trading"

Hear from the CEOs, Chief Investment Officers and Heads of Asset and Wealth Management from major industry players like National Commercial Bank, SEDCO (Saudi Arabia), Dubai Islamic Bank, Emirates Bank (UAE), Noriba Bank, Liquidity Management Centre (Bahrain), Global Investment House (Kuwait), and more.

These are the most recent headlines in the Financial Times. If you don't know what "sukuk" is, I believe you must be getting very curious to find out. The global sukuk market has now swelled to about US$41 billion, and with almost no secondary trading in existence until now.

At Islamic Funds World 2006, you will meet TWO highly prominent Shariah Scholars who can tell you what sukuk is, and much more than that, what Shariah compliance means to any serious business that wants to get into the Islamic funds industry.

? Sheikh Hussein Hamid Hassan, Shariah Scholar, UAE
? Sheikh Nizam Yaquby, Shariah Scholar, Bahrain

You will also hear from the person who practically started it allwho is now heading the Liquidity Management Centre (LMC) from Bahrain, which is thus far the largest issuer of sukuks.

? Ahmed Abbas, Chief Executive Officer,

Liquidity Management Centre,

The opportunities to harness the mounting interest and tremendous growth in Shariah compliant products are here, and all major players are congregating at Islamic Funds World 2006 from 3-6 September, in Dubai.
