Following on from last year’s success, Euromoney Seminars’ 2nd Annual Islamic Finance Paris Summit offers the market an ideal opportunity to meet to examine the most pressing issues facing the industry in France, Europe and beyond. Join your peers in Paris, in September, to hear from senior Shariah scholars, investment and retail bankers, corporate borrowers, takaful providers, asset managers and institutional investors as they discuss the opportunities in Islamic finance in France as well as the hurdles to continued development of the French capital as a competitive hub for Islamic finance.
Islamic finance worldwide continues to offer a competitive and viable alternative to traditional forms of banking and finance. Considered ethical and socially responsible by investors and borrowers alike, the appeal of Islamic finance has, over the last decade, broadened beyond the traditional geographic confines of the Gulf and SE Asia. In France, Paris is poised to become Europe’s financial hub for Islamic finance, thanks to progressive amendments to legislation and regulation.
