KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 20 (Bernama) -- The Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) will host the 5th International Islamic Capital Market Forum on Nov 10, 2011.

In a statement today, the SC said local and international experts would discuss and deliberate on the current state of Islamic finance at the forum.

The forum, themed "Risk Sharing: A Way Forward to Public Good", would feature Islamic finance scholars and practitioners.

They are Dr Abbas Mirakhor (International Centre for Education in Islamic Finance); Prof Volker Nienhaus (Visiting professor, Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies); and, Prof Mohamad Aslam Haneef (International Islamic University Malaysia).

Others include Prof Mohammad Hashim Kamali (International Institute of Advanced Islamic Studies); Omar Sheikh (Islamic Finance Council, UK); Mushtak Parker (editor, Islamic Banker); and, Mohamed Ismail Mohamed Shariff (Mohamed Ismail & Co).

The statement said SC chairman, Tan Sri Zarinah Anwar, would deliver the keynote address.

It said the forum would provide a platform for international experts to discuss the current model of Islamic finance.

"The discussions will focus on how a risk-sharing system can address some of the issues arising from the risk transfer system practised by the conventional financial industry," it said.

It said the key topics included integrating Islamic heritage with modern knowledge; risk sharing and public policy; and, Islamic economics and the public good.
