IBFIM, FPAM Organise Islamic Financial Planning Conference On Nov 9

KUALA LUMPUR, July 31 (Bernama) -- The Islamic Banking and Finance Institute Malaysia (IBFIM) and the Financial Planning Association of Malaysia (FPAM) will be organising the inaugural Islamic Financial Planning and Wealth Management Conference 2009 (IFPC) to be held this November 9 and 10 at the Sime Darby Convention Centre here.

In a statement Friday, IBFIM said it hoped the financial planning and wealth management community will benefit from the conference and be conversant with Islamic or syariah-compliant financial planning and explore the opportunities.

The conference is also part of the long term objective to develop Malaysia as an international Islamic financial planning and wealth management hub.

Among the significant accomplishments made in that direction is the introduction of the Islamic Financial Planner qualification that is recognised both by Bank Negara Malaysia and the Securities Commission, it said.

The conference expects to bring together financial planning and wealth management professionals, investment product providers, consultants and service providers, including those in the Islamic banking, takaful, investment and asset management industry.
