About the Course

The sukuk market composes 15% of Islamic financial assets. Sukuk provide an alternative capital raising avenue to conventional and Sharia’a compliant issuers. The market has gone through the test of financial crisis and Sharia’a criticism. Today, the market is experimenting with different solutions for a myriad of client needs. The aim of this program is to analyze various issues related to the global and regional Sukuk markets.

We will examine how different Sukuk are structured and various applications of Sukuk in the market ranging from general obligation Sukuk to ABS. Besides Sukuk structures, we also analyze business, credit, Sharia’a, risks, regulatory, legal and other issues. The course will also highlight the latest developments in Sukuk regulations globally.

We will review different term sheets and actual case studies to ensure that delegates are able to examine live deals in the market. Our goal is to give delegates the capacity to make informed decisions. We discuss various Sharia’a opinions in the market; starting with AAOIFI and explaining where and why variances from AAOIFI occur.

Using key Islamic contracts, the course will allow delegates to structure highly tailored wholesale financing solutions for specific client requirements. Case studies and exercises will allow delegates to test various structures and situations, and work towards innovative but ultimately Sharia’a - compliant structures.
