Islamic Asset Management: An Asset Class on Its Own?

By Natalie Schoon | Go to book overview

CHAPTER 7
CASE
STUDIES

This chapter provides case studies of a select number of Sharia‘a-compliant funds. These funds have been randomly selected based on their type and geography and their inclusion here does not represent an endorsement, investment advice, or that they are better or worse than any of the other funds available in the market when it comes to Sharia‘a compliance or performance.

When making an investment decision, investors will have to satisfy themselves that their requirements, including but not restricted to their risk appetite and the goodness of fit of the fund within their overall portfolio, are met. When investing in Sharia‘a-compliant funds, the investor also needs to ensure that the fund’s framework for Sharia‘a compliance meets the investor’s own requirements. In any case investors will always need to bear in mind that past performance is no indication for the future.

The information presented in the case studies is publicly available from a variety of sources such as web sites, press releases, fact sheets and databases as well as offering memoranda and the fund prospectus. A similar structure is applied for each of the case studies, providing a little background on the fund manager, fund objectives, asset allocation and performance.
