Shariah Assets

of Shariah-compliant investing

Rigorous investment process with a strong governance framework
Our Shariah-compliant funds invest in permissible businesses with compliant capital structures and attractive outlooks. Potential investments go through qualitative and quantitative screening prior to selection and the funds are independently reviewed and endorsed by a Supervisory Board of Islamic Scholars.
Access to a world of investment opportunities
The market for Islamic finance is growing rapidly and our Shariah-compliant funds open the doors for investors to gain exposure to global investment opportunities in equities and fixed income (Sukuk).
Combining both our Shariah-compliant equity and Sukuk funds in your investment strategy can help manage risks and provide stability as the funds’ performance does not always move in tandem.
