Once again the London Sukuk Summit delivered on its promise to be a key event
The quality of the discussions led by the panellists and also in the margins of the conference was excellent and highly relevant
Sukuk remains an untapped opportunity for European corporates
ICG’s London Sukuk Summit has over the years played an important part in raising the profile of Sukuk and educating the issuers and investors in this important financing instrument.
I was delighted to be asked to give a key note speech at the Sukuk Summit
The opportunity to engage with global experts & industry practitioners was very welcome and I greatly appreciated the hard work of all those involved.
