[su_testimonial style=”2″ name=”Mohamad Tariq” title=”Former Head of Treasury & Advisor to the President” company=”Islamic Development Bank” photo=”images/Speakers/Mohammed Tariq.gif” scroll_reveal=”enter bottom”]London Annual Sukuk Summit organised by ICG has undoubtedly established itself as a premier event for Islamic finance. Sukuk market continues to develop with issuance averaging $120 billion a year. At the Summit new structures for Sukuk, meeting the issuers’ requirements, are presented by industry professionals. Keynote speakers include representatives from top financial regulators, senior market practitioners and others who have been involved in Islamic finance over a long period. Panel discussions take place in a unique setting with a given theme discussed in an interactive session. One feature of the success of the Summit is audience participation in Q&A sessions and knowledgeable comments from the floor, which is very much encouraged. Each year there is an improvement in the depth and breadth of what the Summit presentations cover. I can strongly recommend attendance by anybody interested in Islamic finance in general, and Sukuk area in particular.[/su_testimonial]
