WIFFMC: A New World of Opportunity for Islamic Investments
For more than a decade now the annual World Islamic Funds and Financial Markets Conference (WIFFMC) has been at the forefront of the global Islamic investments industry, firmly establishing its reputation as the world’s largest and most influential gathering of leaders in the Shari’ah-compliant asset management and Sukuk markets. The 11th annual edition of WIFFMC 2015, to be held in the Kingdom of Bahrain on the 18th & 19th May 2015, under the official patronage of the Central Bank of Bahrain, is set to continue this tradition of supporting growth, excellence and innovation in the global Islamic financial markets. WIFFMC 2015 will be a high profile gathering that will chart a new road map for the further growth and development of the dynamic Islamic funds and investments industry.
WIFFMC 2015: New Frontiers for Islamic Funds and Capital Markets
The in depth discussions at last year’s WIFFMC 2014 highlighted that investor appetite for Shari’ah compliant investment options is pushing the Islamic funds and investments industry into the mainstream and the increasing demand for quality Sukuk, in particular, has played a key role in this progress. The recent plunge in oil prices will also have a significant impact on the industry, especially in the GCC where governments may look to new Sukuk issuances to compensate for lower oil revenues.
However, with the GCC and Malaysia continuing to lead the way in driving the growth of Shari’ahcompliant investment products, the industry’s successful future can be significantly enhanced by broadening the base of issuers and investors, building scale within the industry – and by initiatives supporting the further internationalization of Islamic financial markets.
Now in its 11th annual edition, the World Islamic Funds and Financial Markets Conference is set to gather key decision-makers from the leading international Islamic financial institutions, regulatory agencies, consultancies and investment firms for discussions that will seek to unlock new growth opportunities in the global Islamic funds and investments market. Key topics that will be discussed at WIFFMC 2015 include:

New Insights to Shape the Future: Special Group Delegate Packages
“The potential for Islamic finance market is both significant and exciting. Sustaining the rapid pace of growth achieved over the past several years hinges on creating the conditions that will enable industry players to build scale and support efforts to further broaden the geographic reach – allowing the industry to attract new international Shari’ah-compliant investment flows as well as new capital market issuers. Today, the industry has grown to become an increasingly substantial segment within the global financial markets and has gained significant attention as a viable and efficient alternative model of financial intermediation. Increasingly, more countries are looking to tap into Islamic finance as the industry continues to evolve and market players should act to meet this growing need on a global stage. I look forward this year to the discussions at the 10th Anniversary of the World Islamic Funds Financial Markets Conference, held under the theme of “Building Scale and Broadening Horizons of Islamic Investments”, which will seek to unlock new growth opportunities in the global Islamic financial markets. The Central Bank of Bahrain is once again delighted to be supporting this prestigious event”.

“Islamic capital markets have witnessed enormous growth and progress over the last few years, in particular as increasingly international Sukuk issuances from sovereigns, trans-national institutions, financial institutions and corporate end-users continue to expand the boundaries of the industry across key jurisdictions. While work documentation and product standards to strengthen and streamline the legal, operational and market practices as well as Shari’ah harmonization is continuing, it is important that the industry maintains its positive growth trajectory and all stakeholders work together to further improve the conditions and infrastructure essential for the continued international development of Islamic capital markets. I am delighted to be a part of the important discussions at this year’s 10th Anniversary World Islamic Funds and Financial Markets Conference 2014 and look forward to discussions on further improving international standardization across Islamic capital markets.”

“The Shari’ah compliant industry has faced many challenges in the past, some from the supply side (where there was lack of supply of choice and diversity in the products offered) and in the demand side where investors were under the impression that Sharia products don’t provide similar returns or diversity as conventional product. As new markets continue to develop infrastructure supportive of Islamic funds, the next phase of growth for the Islamic investments industry will be boosted by new international opportunities for the industry to build scale and broaden geographic horizons – and thus will provide many new investment opportunities for the Islamic investor in jurisdictions like Luxembourg that provide the ideal environment to build a platform to cater to these needs. Increasing access to international investor pools by offering a diverse range of products will enable the industry to generate economies of scale and further provide investors with viable and cost-effective alternatives to conventional funds. The 10th Anniversary World Islamic Funds and Financial Markets Conference is an excellent platform for industry experts to share their knowledge and experience of the industry, and I am looking forward to participating in insightful discussions at this conference.”
