All potential portfolio investments are assessed for adherence to Islamic law. We enable investment in funds and ﬁxed income Sukuk products that comply with Sharia. The aim is to achieve comparable returns to conventional ﬁxed- income instruments such as bonds, by paying proﬁt rather than interest. Diﬀerent types of Sukuk are based on diﬀerent structures of Islamic contracts (Murabaha, Ijara, Musharaka, Istithmar) depending on the project it is ﬁnancing.
