As Islamic finance evolves in frontier markets like Nigeria, retail and institutional investors are showing increasing interest in Shari'ah-compliant funds due to their ethical nature.
One of such investments is the "Halal Fund" which presents an inclusive option for anyone to invest especially individuals who consider certain social welfare and moral standards when investing.
This form of investment has existed since the 7th century but only started to experience formalization in the 1960s. Another interesting part of the business is that the entire Halal finance industry hovers around a value of $2 trillion.
FBNQuest has recommended the FBN Halal Fund to investors seeking to diversify their portfolios while earning competitive fixed-income yields. Through the "FBN Halal Fund", the organization has provided investors with long-term income generation strategies by investing primarily in screened Shari'ah-compliant investment opportunities and contracts.
