Stop Press: We will be discussing the recent very shocking “Dana Gas” development which is likely to have wide scale implications for the Islamic finance sector and Sukuk issuance in particular. The trainer has been extensively quoted in the press on this case and is a noted expert on Sukuk default and financial restructurings in the Gulf region. This is your unique chance to get the latest insights on arguably the biggest Islamic finance development in many years.
This one day course covers everything the attendee needs to know about sukuk – the Islamic equivalent to a bond (and more) – which has taken the financial world by storm in a space of less than fifteen years.
We cover the subject from both a theoretical and practical perspective, looking at the legal rules underpinning the product (including its structuring) and its actual issuance in the capital markets and all the implications that arise from that. We also take time to consider the numerous controversial aspects and likely future developments.
Our course trainer is a practising lawyer who has managed probably more sovereign sukuk issues in the Gulf region that any other lawyer.
