Dubai Islamic Bank powerhouse Dr Adnan Chilwan is to offer his expert insight at the upcoming WIBC Capital Markets Summit Asia.
Dr Chilwan is Group Chief Executive Officer at former Gulf Customer Experience Awards winners Dubai Islamic Bank, and he will offer his unique insights in the panel Mind the GAP – Global Asian versus GCC Pivot, at the Summit, which is taking place in Singapore on July 1-2
Renowned for his calculated aggressiveness, Dr Chilwan has been instrumental in the phenomenal transformation of the institution he leads into what is undoubtedly the fastest growing bank in the region with assets and market cap of over USD 61 billion and USD 9 billion respectively.
“Asia continues to be an important region for the global financial system driven by its strong growth over the past decade. The region’s leading business and economic competitiveness make it an attractive choice for international investments and capital flows, particularly those coming from the MENA region.
“Apart from being an important part of the world economy, the Islamic financial system is thriving more so than ever before as the region is also home to the largest Muslim population in the world.
“We at Dubai Islamic Bank have already established ourselves in Asia, through Indonesia and Pakistan, and will continue to be open to further investment and growth prospects in the coming years.”
Further, the summit will host an exclusive panel themed “Fintech: Implications for Islamic Capital Markets” which will analyse how the fintech hubs and sukuk markets – in Asia and GCC – are faring; regional initiatives driving the industry’s growth; and key issues fintech can help solve within Islamic capital markets.
