The IFSB will be organising the IFSB Regulator's Forum, on 10 May 2016, in conjunction with the Global Islamic Finance Forum (GIFF 5.0) on which will be held on 10 - 12 May 2016, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

With the theme "Islamic Finance in 2016 and Beyond: Challenges, Opportunities and Evolving Regulatory Focus", the IFSB Regulator’s Forum is designed to encourage broad interaction among the delegates to explore the implications on the Islamic financial services industry (IFSI) from the evolving global regulatory reform agenda.
