Barak Shariah Trade Finance Fund

About the fund

Shariah is the Muslim or Islamic law which regulates many aspects of a Muslim’s life including the type of investments allowed. A Shariah compliant fund is an investment vehicle fund structured in accordance to Shariah rules. They are in essence common funds with an extra layer of Islamic rules integrated in the Investment Polices of the Fund. The funds are required to be fully compliant with Shariah rule; however, the companies structuring, managing and promoting the funds do not have to be necessarily Shariah compliant.
