Shariah Principles

World-Class Shariah Scholars & Screening Technology

Our portfolios are independently reviewed and endorsed by the Amanie International Shariah Supervisory Board, highly regarded for their extensive Shariah and technical understanding. The Amanie Scholars provide initial approval on investment objectives and strategy, as well as ongoing supervisory and monitoring services to ensure continuous adherence to internationally accepted Shariah principles and standards.

Our Shariah compliance practice goes beyond screening the breadth of global securities, but we also understand the importance of depth in scrutinizing each security to ensure all aspects of the business harmonize with Shariah principles. To that end, we leverage on the best-in-class technology to:

  • Screen over 40,000 global securities
  • Examine the business activities of each company
  • Evaluate selected financial ratios according to prescribed algorithms
  • Identify and cleanse non-compliant income in a manner consistent with Shariah law
