01- 03
The World Islamic Banking Conference (WIBC)

Monday, December 1, 2014 to Wednesday, December 3, 2014

The theme of the 21st Annual WIBC 2014 will focus on “Islamic Finance: Towards the New Paradigm Shift in Global Financial Markets” and will tackle key areas of the Islamic finance sector, including regulatory, strategic, Shari’ah, operational and risk transformation to ensure that the industry is able to build critical mass, expand its geographic reach & depth, and participate in large-scale deals seamlessly across jurisdictions – and, ultimately and most importantly, to successfully meet the needs of an ever-growing base of investors, customers and end-users.

The World Islamic Banking Conference, in its 21st Annual Edition, will set the stage for pioneers, industry titans and global leaders who have trail-blazed the development of Islamic finance to gather in the Kingdom of Bahrain not only to celebrate the tremendous growth that the international Islamic finance industry has achieved over 2 decades but also to revisit and re-mould the critical success factors that will enable the industry to achieve the next set of milestones.

The global market leaders will gather in full force, with more than 1,300 attendees representing over 50 countries, at the 21st Annual WIBC to shape the future of the Islamic finance industry.
