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.
