Tapping Liquidity and the role of Islamic Finance
Investment from the GCC and other Islamic jurisdictions has historically favoured key real estate real estate markets such as the UK. At the same time the UK market with support from legislative and industry bodies have, in response to the increasing demand for Shariah complaint structures, played an important role in facilitating the continued growth of the Islamic financing industry in the UK. Similar developments are also taking place in other major European centres such as France, Luxembourg and further afield in Turkey, Hong Kong, and Singapore to name but a few.
This has resulted in centres such as London becoming one of the world's leading Islamic finance jurisdictions attracting huge investments, from the global Islamic finance industry; particularly into London's commercial and high end residential real estate sectors. As the UK financial and real estate industries have becoming more and more attune with Islamic financing structures Islamic investors have become more comfortable and adventurous, drawn to country wide investment opportunities in the UK. The same is now true of global opportunities as Islamic real estate investors are now active in all continents of the world. The IREF 2011 Summit is proud to have the participation of leading experts and major institutions from key global real estate markets who will shed light on and share knowledge of their particular market.
Special regional and country show cases of countries and sectors experiencing a current boom in their real estate markets such as: Brazil, Malaysia; Turkey and the Caucuses will also constitute an important aspect of IREF 2011. As such IREF participants will be afforded a rare opportunity to identify lucrative opportunities and forge new business relationships in an intimate and focused environment. The challenge is to bring together those cooperates from the UK, Europe, the GCC, Asia and further afield internationally who could benefit from accessing the liquidly that the Islamic financial industry can supply and forge mutually beneficial relationships.
On the second day of the Summit, 3rd of February, proceedings will begin with one of the main attractions of the Summit, the shariah scholar's panel discussion, pioneered by ICG-Events and now regular feature in all ICG conferences. The shariah scholar's panel is comprised of eminent shariah scholars and industry experts. The shariah scholars panel will then be followed by the special regional focuses which aim to highlight the select opportunities in the best performing and most vibrant real estate markets globally. For 2011 the special focuses will feature; from the GCC, Qatar; from the Americas, Brazil; from south East Asia, Malaysia; from the Caucasus's, Turkey.
Government officials, legislators and market from each of the respective countries to be featured will provide detailed overviews of the peculiarities and opportunities in their markets and regions. The Summit will then close following an exclusive reception for all the Summit participants, hosted by the City of London Corporation at the City Marketing Suite, City of London, Guildhall, London.
Jeremy Fern, Head of City affairs will give a fantastic presentation on property in the one square mile, arguable the world's most important financial centre. Mr. Fern will utilize the remarkable 1:500 scale model of the City which offers an essential guide to property in the Square Mile and provides an overview of the entire area. Each property is shown in the context of neighbouring occupants, nearby facilities and public transport. It is a fascinating depiction of a 21st century city built on 2,000 years of history.
With all these market dynamics, IREF 2011 with its theme "Tapping Liquidity and the Role of Islamic Finance" due to be held on the 2nd-3rd February 2011 at the Jumeirah Carlton Towers, Knightsbridge, London could not have come at a more opportune time.
