How we invest
This page details our process for carefully investing your superannuation in an ethical manner.
The creation of our Hejaz
Islamic Super portfolio
Firstly, our ethical investment experts analyse companies in Australian and overseas share markets (as well as gold and property investments) to create a universe of stocks that passes our strict Islamic investment criteria.
Then, our investment team uses this Islamically screened universe to create the Hejaz Islamic Super portfolio. The investment team selects the Islamic stocks they believe will produce superior financial returns.
Finally, our portfolio team actively look for investments that will yield positive returns whilst monitoring current investments.
Over 1/3 of your super may fund industries against our values.
The receiving of interest is strictly forbidden in Islam. If a positive, fixed, predetermined rate is attached to the maturity (i.e. a guaranteed rate regardless of the performance of the investment), it will be considered riba and is prohibited.
Unfortunately, most superannuation funds invest on average 34% of your super in interest-bearing investments, while the remaining investments are conducted without any regard for Islamic investment principles.
