The organiser of Sri Lanka's 2nd Islamic and Banking Conference recently announced that the event's keynote speaker would be Rushdi Siddiqui, the Global Head of Islamic Finance for USA-based Thomson Reuters, the parent of historic Reuters newswire services.

UTO EduConsult, the conference organiser, also stated that this three-day event, slated for the last week of July, would also feature Dr. Shariq Nisar from India and Dato’ Fadzli Yusof from Malaysia as well as well-known personalities in Sri Lanka, including Hilmy Cader, Global Head of MTI Consulting, Faizal Salieh, MD/CEO of Amana Investments Limited, Reyaz Mihular, Senior Partner of KPMG and Ishrat Rauff, MD/CEO of SAIF Capital.

Mr. Siddiqui, a key figure in the launch of the DJIM Amana Sri Lanka Index, which tracks Shariah-compliant stocks on the Colombo Stock Exchange, during his tenure as Dow Jones Indexes' Head of Global Finance; will be making his keynote address on the subject of “Islamic Finance 2.0”. This would also be followed by a presentation on the "Convergence of Islamic Finance and the Halal Industry" during the second day of the conference.
