  3. 3. UK Development of Tax & Regulatory Structure • London offers the most open, flexible and attractive tax & regulatory structure for facilitating Islamic finance • 2003 – introduction of Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) legislation to remove double SDLT in Islamic instruments structured with property transactions • further changes made in 2005 and 2006 to introduce new types of borrowing concepts – murabaha and diminishing musharaka • Finance Acts 2007 and 2008 contained measures to facilitate sukuk issuance by addressing differences in tax treatment between Alternative Finance Investment Bonds (AFIBs) and conventional bonds 3
  4. 4. Further Developments • October 2009, FCA and HM Treasury summary of responses to joint consultation paper on AFIBs proposed changes aimed at regulating sukuk in equivalent way to conventional bonds – aim was to remove additional regulatory burden associated with sukuk which had seemed to fall within definition of Collective Investment Scheme (CIS) – expected to facilitate sukuk issuance by removing barriers structuring of property-backed sukuk in the UK • legislation introduced in Finance Bill 2009 – amended SDLT and Capital Gains Tax (CGT) rules to allow sukuk issuers to retain capital allowance in relation to transactions linked to UK land • ‘liquidity buffer’ arrangements 2009 – FCA recognised specific needs of Islamic banks in relation to requirements of regulator’s strengthened liquidity standards, amendments introduced to allow Islamic banks to hold IDB securities rather than conventional sovereign bonds

New Retail Market • London Stock Exchange launched its Order book for Retail Bonds (ORB) in 2010, which aims to develop a liquid, transparent, on-screen market in fixed income for private investors • ORB offers a new market model for fixed income in the UK and is in early stages of development, but our aim is to expand this market to offer a wider range of securities • for admission to ORB, securities must be issued in ‘retail-size’, for example, in trading denominations of £1,000 and must be supported by a market maker committed to quoting two-way tradable prices throughout continuous trading session • this new market may present interesting opportunities for sukuk issuers who wish to access the growing retail appetite for alternative asset classes
  10. 10. Investor Demand • increasing private investor focus on fixed income – seeking alternative asset classes given current low interest rates and recent equity market volatility • private investors using bond funds are keen to take more active role in managing their portfolio by selecting and trading individual bonds • strong demand from UK private client brokers for electronic retail bond offering – customers seeking cost-effective, transparent mechanism for retail price discovery in secondary markets for UK sovereign and corporate bonds – strong appetite for wider range of retail-size corporate bonds to be made available
