- Maisam Fazal, Head of Commercial Finance at Al Rayan Bank, who spoke about Islamic finance and the real estate market.

The seminar was introduced and moderated by Alan Grey, Manager of Property Finance at National Bank of Abu Dhabi's London branch.
As always at these events, a lively discussion followed the presentations, and this was followed by a buffet dinner during which participants were able to mix informally with the speakers and other members of the London Arab banking community.
