Details

The World Leaders Summit has become one of Redmoney’s annual seminal events. This one-day event is tailored to provide an opportunity for the industry’s most influential figures to congregate and openly debate the most pressing issues facing the GCC Islamic finance block with a focus on the UAE.

The GCC is expected to be one of the key drivers in the expansion of Islamic finance with the governments of this coalition driving the growth of Islamic bonds with Sukuk — which is becoming a global instrument — issuance expected to reach US$120–130 billion.
