(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Sheikh Dr Khalid bin Thani bin Abdullah Al Thani, Chairman, Ezdan Holding Group, attended the "Eleventh Harvard University Forum on Islamic Finance" held at the Harvard Law School, US. He was one of the key speakers at the main session of the three-day conference that concluded yesterday.

Sheikh Dr Khalid chaired a roundtable discussion on the concluding day, in which he spoke about the latest trends in the global Islamic finance market.

The Forum discussed critical issues related to world Islamic finance, including alternative models and their associated challenges, investment models and profitability, Shari'ah-related, legal, regulatory and governance concerns. Critical issues of risk sharing, mutuality, solidarity and socio-economic welfare in the context of a discussion about takaful and other types of cooperative financial solutions were among other topics debated at the Forum.

Ezdan Holding Group CEO Ali Mohammed Al Obaidli also attended the conference. The conference offered a great platform to exchange views on Islamic Finance.

A large number of international experts, regulatory leaders and financial analysts attended the meet.

"We are honoured to represent Ezdan Holding Group, which is a pioneer in Islamic finance and Takaful insurance. Our keenness to support Islamic funding stems from the desire of the Group to spread this type of financing, which goes hand in hand with Islamic Shari'ah," he said.

Dr Elsayed Elseify, Associate Professor, Faculty of Islamic Studies, Hamad bin Khalifa University and Investment and Investor Relations Consultant at Ezdan Holding Group chaired the second session of the conference, which discussed the regulatory issues and risk aspects.

Al Obaidli said Ezdan Holding Group has sought the support of Harvard University to host the next edition of "Doha Islamic Finance Conference" to be held under the aegis of the Group.

Earlier, Ezdan Holding Group had also participated in the South Western Institution Conference of Finance and Investment, held in Dallas, Texas in collaboration with the Federation of Business Disciplines. The conference witnessed the participation of about 80 PhD students, more than 120 finance and investment scientists from across the world.
