The Fund seeks to provide investors with regular income distributions through investments in Islamic deposits, Islamic placement of money at call, General Investment Accounts and Islamic Negotiable instruments.

The Fund will be managed in accordance with Shariah requirements and thus the  investments to be made by the Fund will also follow Shariah requirements. In that respect, the Fund will invest in Islamic deposits such as Islamic placement of money at call and/or Islamic money market instruments such as general investment accounts and Islamic negotiable instruments. The combination of these instruments may allow the Manager to obtain higher returns over a  one year investment horizon compared to  merely placing monies in Islamic deposits. The Manager will actively manage the permitted investments and maturity structure of the investments in the Fund to optimise return for investors in accordance to the interest rates outlook and analysis.
