Following the success of the 1st UUM International IBMC, Institute of Shariah Governance and Islamic Finance (ISGaIF) and Islamic Business School (IBS), are organizing the second IBMC scheduled to be on the 8th-9th May 2018 in Kuala Lumpur. Themed “BUILDING RESILIENCE FOR FINANCIAL AND WEALTH WELLBEING, the forthcoming IBMC2018 is expected to platform academicians, industry players and other stakeholders to be together to exchange ideas and build network to further enhance growth and promote sustainability for Islamic business management. In the recent years, the global market has seen some macroeconomic challenges such as volatilities in oil prices and exchange rates (such as in Malaysia).
Accompanied with low interest rate environment, geopolitical risks and monetary policy uncertainties, investors are now more pressured to strike the right balance of risk and return profiles in the search for optimal yields for their investments. Although growth across most capital markets was observed with bond market grew to RM1.17 trillion and the stock market capitalization of RM1.67 trillion (Securities Commissions Report, 2016), especially with the new market demographic of millennials, developing resilience for financial wellbeing against these macroeconomic and political challenges seems inevitable. Accordingly, identifying new growth areas for investors, millennials, industry players and other stakeholders is seen as one of the key issues that can be addressed and therefore hoped to be deliberated further in this IBMC 2018.
