Autoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam (AMBD) hosted a British trade delegation recently as a follow-up from the first UK-Brunei Darussalam Financial Services Forum, held in the United Kingdom in January this year.
The trade delegation, who was in Brunei Darussalam on 22nd and 23rd May 2017, discussed with AMBD and exchanged experiences in developing the Capital Market in Brunei Darussalam and the United Kingdom, including in the area of Islamic Finance. This is part of AMBD’s efforts in realizing its strategic plan as laid out in the recently launched Financial Sector Blueprint.
Part of the discussion also focused on the experiences and opportunities in the UK Islamic Financial Sector looking at the UK’s Islamic financial architecture and the regulatory and legislative developments.
The British trade delegation was led by Ms Stella Cox, Managing Director – DDCAP Group, and Chair of the Islamic Finance Market Advisory Group in TheCityUK, a financial services professional body that champions UK-based financial and related professional services.
