LMG's CEO/CIO Erik van Dijk invited as guest to one of the most impressive Islamic Finance conferences we've seen outside the Islamic hemisphere. We are pleased to accept the invitation.

Islamic Finance is booming. The essence of it (more balanced distribution of risks; conservative financing) has made it popular and of interest to Muslims and Non-Muslims alike after the Global Financial and European Debt Crises. LMG is - as an implemented consultant - involved with the launch of an Islamic Finance Fund of Funds (Luxemburg-based SIF Sicav).

While Western financial markets are still struggling, issues of Islamic Finance related financial instruments are oversubscribed 9-12 times.

LMG partners with Emirates NBD and Invest AD, large financial institutions from Dubai and Abu Dhabi respectively.
