KUALA LUMPUR, July 3 (Bernama) — Lembaga Tabung Haji has won the “Outstanding Institutional Contribution to the Islamic Finance Sector” award at the 2009 London Sukuk Summit Awards.

In a statement here today, Tabung Haji said its group managing director/chief executive officer, Datuk Ismee Ismail, received the award last night.

The annual event, which is in its third year, was organised by the Islamic Conference Group and endorsed by the Treasury, UK Trade and Investments, London Stock Exchange, International Financial Services London and the Arab British Chamber of Commerce.

Ismee said Tabung Haji was proud to be among the few Malaysian organisations to win the award.

“The award will encourage us to be bolder in fulfilling our plans for diversification and to seek new avenues of investments,” he said.

Several Malaysian individuals had been honoured previously, including Bank Negara Malaysia governor, Tan Sri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz, and the late Tan Sri Datuk Jaafar Hussein, he said.

Ismee said Tabung Haji would increase its competitiveness in its current investment sectors, namely plantations, properties, construction, banking, information technology and travel and tours, while firming its foothold in the oil and gas and the halal food sectors.

The Sukuk Summit Awards aims to help raise the standards in the Islamic finance sector and to set the highest benchmarks for the industry globally.
