Islamic Finance finding support in Turkey
 
03:27
Islamic Finance is growing more popular in less conventional countries and regions, such as Europe and Central Asia. In the wake of the financial crisis, Islamic banking grew into one of the fastest developing components of the global banking system. Recent developments in key European financial markets, namely the United Kingdom and Luxembourg, point towards potential for the Islamic banking sector to gain deeper traction across the continent. As Turkey places more emphasis on the industry, its geographical position gives it promise for becoming a global hub for Islamic economics.

Islamic Finance Centres Major Islamic Finance Centres are Kuala Lumpur, London, Luxembourg and Dubai whilst Hong Kong, Singapore, Turkey and Indonesia are all developing their Islamic markets. Islamic Finance is for all Mankind Malaysia is home to the most developed Islamic Finance market. Non-Muslims make up significant portion of Islamic Bank customers as Sharia compliant products are ethical and tend to be more competitive than conventional financial products in Malaysia. Growth Drivers - Population and Demographics 25% of world population is Muslim, but only 2% of global assets are Sharia compliant. Growth Drivers - Growing Middle Classes Growth is being driven by affluent and emerging middle class Muslims globally looking for investing solutions based on Sharia and Ethical principles. Growth Drivers - Oil and Gas Wealth Excess liquidity from Middle East and Asian Sovereign Wealth Funds is eager to place funds into Sharia compatible instruments. Longer Term Growth Longer-term growth will be driven by greater coordination and consolidation within the currently fragmented Islamic Finance industry. Financial Inclusion Islamic Financial services will continue to show strong growth as unbanked populations participant with the financial sector. 8% of Turkish adults do not have a bank account for religious reasons, according to a 2014 World Bank report. Sukuk After Islamic Banking, Sukuk represent the biggest element of Islamic Finance. Sukuk is asset securitization based on Sharia principles and often viewed as Islamic Bonds. The United Kingdom became the first non-Muslim country to issue a sovereign Sukuk in 2014. Market Demand Rated Sukuk are heavily oversubscribed, whilst quality companies which covert operations to Islamic Finance principles are able to attract Islamic investors. Vodafone Qatar converted its operations to those based on Sharia rules and practises, its shares jumped 22%. International Islamic Finance The US Dollar dominates Islamic Finance transactions whilst the Malaysian Ringgit has emerged as a popular cross border currency. English Law governs most international Islamic Finance contracts.

HK connects financial markets (22.06.2015)
 
01:15
A premier capital formation centre, Hong Kong is one of the world's largest markets for initial public offerings. Last year, our stock market raised $233 billion through IPOs, second globally, just behind the United States. More than 1,700 companies are listed in Hong Kong, including Mainland and overseas companies. They are here because of Hong Kong's market liquidity and our access to global investors. They are here also because Hong Kong offers the combined advantage of "one country" and "two systems". Today, Mainland companies account for more than 60% of our market capitalisation. One of the highlights of the past year must be the preparation for, and then the launch of, Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect. The go-ahead given by the Central Authorities in Beijing amidst the disturbance of Occupy Central is the ultimate proof of their trust and confidence in Hong Kong in the handling of the unprecedented challenge to law and order. I take this opportunity to thank the Central Authorities. I thank also Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing for working with the Government during the weeks of anxiety before we got the final green light. I remember the many meetings with Chung Kong – CK, and Charles, including one that CK was asked to join in Government House straight from the airport after a long flight from Europe. Groundbreaking connection Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect has indeed taken our super-connector role to new heights. It is groundbreaking too. It has opened the Mainland stock market as never before. It enhances co-operation between the Hong Kong and Shanghai stock markets by expanding their sources of investment; it also boosts their competitiveness. It proves again that both cities can work together for mutual benefits, and the game is not zero-sum. And there is more. Stock Connect is promoting the gradual opening of the Mainland's capital account and the internationalisation of the renminbi as an investment currency for global investors. Stock Connect has been running smoothly. And it's just the beginning. A similar link with Shenzhen will follow. Global expansion Just last month, FTSE announced that it would include Mainland A-shares in its global benchmarks. Such a move will enable global investors to gain wide exposure to the A-share market. It will also benefit our financial intermediaries, those who provide services to global investors entering the A-share market through Hong Kong. Mainland connectivity is only part of our strategy. We set our eyes also on market players from the rest of the world. HKEx now owns the London Metal Exchange, LME, in the UK, the world's largest premier base metals market. HKEx now enjoys a global leadership position in base metals futures and options trading through the LME. In April, with the Government's full support, HKEx's four clearing houses were recognised by the European Securities & Markets Authority as third-country central counterparties to offer clearing services to European financial institutions. This ensures that European banks and other financial institutions will continue to participate in our markets. The recognition is also testimony to the high standards of Hong Kong's financial market intermediaries. Beyond Hong Kong's well-established equity and equity derivatives business, our super-connector role extends to the commodities market. Last December, HKEx launched its first Asia commodities futures contracts, referenced to the global reference price of the LME. Hong Kong is in an excellent position to satisfy Asia's appetite for trading in commodity futures, particularly demand driven by the Mainland. Looking ahead, "One Belt, One Road" and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, AIIB, promise us huge opportunities as a fundraising hub and provider of financial services. I'm thinking of international investment, cross-border trade settlement, Renminbi bond issuance, asset and risk management services, corporate treasury services, and more. Hong Kong has a powerful competitive edge in these areas, and we stand to benefit from the grand initiatives of "One Belt, One Road" and AIIB. We will, as well, continue to develop Islamic finance in Hong Kong, given the many Muslim countries along the Belt-Road way. Just last month, the Government successfully offered a second sukuk, with an issuance size of US$1 billion over a tenor of five years. There would be more to come, I believe, when Hong Kong expands its role in Islamic finance. (http://bit.ly/1JdSKcK)

Islamic banking in Malaysia: overview
 
12:07
Tan Sri Dr. Mohd Munir Abdul Majid, Chairman of Bank Muamalat and Chairman of ASEAN-BAC Malaysia talks about the Islamic banking in Malaysia. He says, "As far as Islamic banking in Malaysia, our bank is a small bank and primarily a retail bank, but we make an equity base of RM1.5 billion and profit of over RM200 million. We are a fully-fledged Islamic bank, and there are only two such banks in Malaysia, but what is the difference? Our sharia committee of scholars are the most stringent of sharia scholars, and make sure our products are ensured Islamic. However, that is a product that you offer – you’re not offering a religion: be better than thou, don’t be holier than thou. Be better than other people’s products, in terms of cost, Islamic characteristics, etc." "When the market sees costs that are lower than the costs of other products, they buy in; there was research that showed that 50% of the customer base of Islamic products are non-Muslims in Malaysia. People see when your product is a lower cost, and that you give special attention to them. This is the ethical aspect, that you give special attention to them. We have a staff strength of a little over 2,000 and are able to get close to our customers. These kinds of things make people more comfortable with you; and we also deal more with the small man, so our customer base in retail and consumer banking are those who earn RM3000-5000," he said.

Islamic finance helps diversify investors: S&P official
 
02:12
The growing Islamic finance market has helped economies diversify their investor base, said Director and Global Head of Islamic Finance at Standard & Poor’s Mohamed Damak. Damak told Anadolu Agency there were new players in the market for sukuk, securities similar to bonds, which marked a “significant and growing interest” in Islamic finance. “In 2014, we saw sukuk issued by the U.K., Luxemburg and South Africa,” Damak said. “Why are these issuers doing that?” Damak argued issuers outside the Gulf Cooperation Council and Asia chose to issue sukuk in order to attract investors from the Middle East and Asia, thereby diversify their investor base. For countries like the U.K., Damak said it was more about setting a benchmark for private sector issuers and encouraging them to see sukuk, which is expected to hit $115 billion in 2015, as a complimentary root of financing. “We don’t think there is a competition between Islamic banking and conventional banking or that any model is trying the take over the other. We think there is significant and growing interest in Islamic finance in several countries and that could be seen in recent sukuk transactions from non-traditional issuers,” Damak said. Two-thirds of sukuk issuance in Malaysia Damak said some two-thirds of sukuk issuance came from Malaysia, which issued $50 billion worth of sukuk in 2014. But the Malaysian central bank has not issued any sukuk in 2015, which might result in a “major slowdown of the sukuk market” if this trend continued, according to Damak. Turkey contributed three percent of the total sukuk issuance, a rate that is growing with both the government and private financial institutions expressing more interest in the market, Damak said. Sukuk is the Arabic name commonly used in reference to what is regarded as an Islamic equivalent of bonds. But unlike bonds, it accrues no interest and hands partial ownership of a property, earning proportional rent for the buyer, who also accepts vulnerability to the risks involved.

The future of Islamic finance in Australia: Talal Yassine
 
35:53
Islamic Finance has promised to be the 'next big thing' for over two decades. But despite growing in leaps and bounds in many countries it still represents only a small segment of any market and has only just arrived in Australia. Mr Talal Yassine OAM, ANU Honorary Professorial Fellow and Managing Director of Islamic finance company Crescent Wealth presents this seminar at ANU Crawford School of Public Policy. Crescent Wealth is a funds management company that invests in socially responsible assets based on Islamic investment principles. But what does Islamic finance actually mean? Can it be used as an antidote to some of the worst excesses of 'unfettered free market capitalism'? What does its application mean for politicians, policymakers and Australia in the region? Mr Yassine discusses the opportunities, strengths and the challenges of using the Islamic finance principles to conduct business, and how to potentially build an Australia and Asia Islamic finance hub. He looks at how Australia and Asia could follow in the footsteps of the west coast of the United States by becoming the 'home grown' centre of the world's best performing Islamic fund manager or the United Kingdom by being the home to more than 30 Islamic Banks. Talal Yassine is an experienced lawyer, banker and non-executive director. He currently serves on the Board of Australia Post, Sydney Ports, the Whitlam Institute and as Deputy Chairman of the Gulf Australia Business Council. He has also served on the Board of Macquarie University, as the Deputy Chairman of a government regulator, and as Chairman for Platinum Sound Pty Ltd. On Australia Day 2010, Mr Yassine was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for his service to business and to the community through a range of education, health and multicultural organizations.
