Current policy issues and solutions in Islamic finance

8-12 August 2016 | University Square Stratford, London E15 1NF

Dear Colleague,

I am writing to draw your attention to this innovative new London event in the Islamic Finance Calendar and invite your participation as a company or as an individual.

Together we can create an important international exchange on current thinking and advice to governments and regulators and update the global community on live issues in Islamic Finance.

In this international London event we will examine live issues with practitioners and together make recommendations to banking and finance policy makers and regulators in government around the globe. The participation of leading organisations and individuals like yourself and your colleagues will make this possible and will enable a powerful exchange and networking event in London.

I would urge you to consider attending or ensuring clients or staff, especially those based in London, attend the event, to keep up to date and make an input to the most challenging developments in Islamic Finance.


As a friend of the UEL Centre for Islamic Finance, Law and Communities, you and your company are entitled to a special discount rate to attend the Summer School, saving you £950 off the regular registration fee.

Islamic Finance plays an ever-growing role in worldwide commerce, development and consumer access to finance. Each year throws up new questions and challenges for leading practitioners in the field and for the academics who research and teach on the principles and mechanisms of Islamic Finance.

This summer school is not a traditional retreat for academic teaching. It is an active platform for questioning, dialogue and discovery of "Current Policy Issues and Solutions in Islamic Finance.
