Islamic real estate:

Where is the Islamic Real Estate Market Heading Towards?

"I was most pleased to participate in the Islamic Finance conference in Singapore, especially in light of the changes made by the Government of Singapore to create a level playing field for the Islamic Finance Industry.

I found the conference to be both well attended, and well covered by the local and international media"

Dear , Sir

Whenever I speak to people involved in real estate,

I always seem to get varying opinions as to where the

real opportunity for Shari'ah real estate products lies.

Whilst some think it's a passing fad, others - perhaps due to recent successful joint ventures between Arcapita / Capitaland and Kuwait Finance House / Pacific Star - think that there is great potential out there, if only they knew how to tap into it.

With this in mind I've put together what I believe is the first conference in Asia on Islamic Real Estate. I've gathered a cross selection of industry experts, not just from Asia but also from the Middle East and Europe.

CIMB, Dubai Islamic Bank, Kuwait Finance House, TMW America, Allco-IMF, Sharjah Islamic Bank and Vinson & Elkins are just some of the industry experts you'll get to meet over the course of 2 information - packed days.

I believe we've put together a first rate conference programme for anyone wishing to evaluate the potential of Islamic real estate and you two days out of office will be greatly rewarded.
