The IFN Europe Forum was a great occasion to gain a global overview of the dynamics developed in Islamic finance in Europe and beyond, be it on markets, on products or on investors’ behavior. The interaction with participants from the various home markets of Islamic finance is extremely enriching and helps us better focus our support to the industry.

The IFN Europe Forum 2015 was a fantastic event for networking and keeping up to date with the latest developments in our industry. It has built upon the success of previous years and is now an established date in the Islamic finance calendar. Luxembourg, in the heart of Europe, provided the perfect setting for the forum.

The forum was structured and managed very efficiently. It offered a great opportunity to interact with many key people from the industry as well as to receive insight from eminent speakers. Attendants from both Turkish and global institutions presented their opinions of the current status and the requirements of Turkey’s Islamic finance industry, creating a live atmosphere filled with valuable information for everyone who is interested in the future of both the Islamic and conventional finance industry of Turkey. Roundtable discussions were very enlightening in providing different perspectives from the industry leaders of Turkey’s Islamic finance sector as well as delegates from the conventional banks, who might be the next new entrants to the market. Sharing past experience and future plans with the key people from the industry greatly helped me to shape my opinion on the direction the market is headed.

Having participated in the event as a public sector representative, I found the IFN Turkey Dialogue to be a great opportunity for exchanging views and experiences with participants from the industry. The discussions that took place during the dialogue have become an important source of input for us to be used in shaping our policies to support the development of Islamic finance in Turkey. I look forward to participating to similar events in the future.

REDmoney has certainly raised the industry bar higher with the IFN Global Forum 2014. Having seen REDmoney grow from a small two-man team to a robust organization, to be able to undertake such giant events in an impeccable manner with attendance by most of the industry stalwarts in a relatively short period of 10 years exhibits a very high-level of professionalism, commitment to the cause and dedication by the REDmoney team. I wonder to think how the Islamic finance industry would have looked without the presence of Islamic Finance news and IFN events and awards.

These events are crucial to the growth and development of the industry. Where would we be without IFN? Over the years, it has played a pivotal role in bringing stakeholders together – long may it continue.

It was a pleasure participating in the IFN Global Forum in Dubai. I very much enjoyed the forum and networking with the delegates. I thought that the sessions were very engaging and was impressed by the quality of the presenters, moderators and panelists. The Dubai dialogue was extremely informative and engaging. The participants did not hold back and discussed all the issues on the agenda. Different points of view came across and the panelists debated Dubai’s Islamic market initiative and how the private sector can work with the government to make the initiative a reality for Dubai. IFN should be commended for organizing this event and I look forward to attending future IFN events.

The team behind the IFN Forums has worked very hard to play a key role in creating opportunities for the Islamic finance community to come together and share their experiences, ideas, hopes and aspirations. These forums have become an important feature of the Islamic finance landscape.
