The Old Mutual Albaraka Equity Fund is a Shari'ah compliant fund which provides investors with cost-effective access to a broad spectrum of JSE listed investments. The Fund is strictly managed in accordance with Shari'ah Law and therefore does not invest in shares that have an association with alcohol, gambling, non-halaal foodstuffs or interest-bearing instruments. The Shari'ah Supervisory Board assists in ethical issues and ensures that investments meet the stringent considerations of the mandate. The Fund is exposed to the movements and sensitivities of the equity market. The Fund also assumes mandate risk as its mandate precludes investments in non-Shari'ah compliant shares including financial shares and interest-bearing instruments.
