How we invest
“The challenge in Islamic investments is that once you apply the sharia screening, 50,000 globally listed companies that are available to invest in, become 5,000. And that is a challenge only us Islamic portfolio managers can understand and manage.”
– Hakan Ozyon, Senior Portfolio Manager
