Islamic banking had been in operation for more than twenty years in the Islamic world from Middle Eastern to Asia and recently to the European region. Forecasted worldwide fund is to be around USD 1 trillion by the year 2013. At present, Islamic compliant deposits and funds amounted to USD300 billion. The industry of Islamic banking and finance is growing at more than 10% per year since its first operated in 1984. Facilities provided by related sectors such as capital market, money market, financial planning, reporting, accounting and regulating institutions further promote the growth of Islamic financial industry in the world especially in Malaysia.
In line with the Islam Hadhari's practice, Malaysia's aim of becoming a provider for halal products and services becomes a natural effort. This is because, Islam Hadhari or civilisational Islam's approach is to fulfil the ultimate civilisation where the believe in Allah is translated into good governance of government and economic as well as human resources. This in turn will produce well-balanced and independent-spirited individuals.
When individuals earn the self-respect and actualisation the result from their efforts will the optimal ones. This is how, Islam Hadhari's approach can make it possible to achieve its aims. The aspiration of the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato' Sri Abdullah Haji Ahmad Badawi is for Malaysia to be a Global Halal Hub (GHH) offering halal products and services to the 2 billion Muslims around the world. The establishment of Halal Industry Development Corporation (HDC) in May 2007 is one of the efforts undertaken to realise the aspiration. Islamic finance, specifically the capital market, money market, banking, risk management and financial planning will be the core of the Global Halal Hub's operation. In order for the practice of Islamic finance to be conducted efficiently and according to stipulated Syariah requirement, Islamic accounting standards and Syariah audit practices are equally important.

The theme of the seminar is "Towards Financial Intelligence in Islamic Wealth Management." It is relevant to Malaysia's aspiration to be the resource and service providers in Islamic wealth management. By conducting this seminar, the participants can share their knowledge in various areas to come out with the best method to educate and provide to relevant parties that deals with portfolio management and provision of Islamic financial services.
