What is Halal Investing?
Halal investing is investing in companies, also known as equities or stocks, and debt instruments, also known as income or sukuks
(Islamic Bonds) that are in line with Islamic principles of investing. Many conventional investment products aren't Shariah compliant because they are involved with impermissible (haram) activities or generate interest (riba) as income.
For example, profiting off debt is prohibited, so investing in conventional bonds (Government & Corporate) and Guaranteed Investment Certificates (GICs) are not allowed for observant Muslims. Additionally, halal investing prohibits investing in Canada businesses that profit off the following activities:
- Tobacco/Illicit Drugs
- Conventional Financial Services
- Defense / Weapons
- Gambling / Casinos
- Adult Entertainment
What am I Investing In?
We created Canada's First Halal Mortgage Investment fund that:
1 Invests in Halal Mortgages so you can
2 Earn a Halal Return
Manzil's Mortgage Fund is the only fund that invests in halal mortgages in Canada and then shares the profits from financing payments back to its investors.
Built on Strict Ethical & Halal Standards from the Ground Up
We work closely with our Shariah, legal, and audit teams to ensure every part and angle of the income fund is ethically sound and in compliance with Shariah Law. Many well known, local scholars in the United States and Canada are endorsing our product. With Manzil, you can rest assured that your investment is ethical, and end-to-end shariah compliant.
The Only AAOIFI Complaint Fund in Canada
AAOFI is the Accounting and Auditing Organization for Islamic Financial Institutions and is the gold standard for Islamic Finance. AAOIFI compliance ensures we maintain an internal shariah auditor, an active shariah advisory board, and an independent auditor at all times. Due to their strict guidelines, very few are able to attain their certification and we're proud to be the first to do it in Canada.
An Asset-Backed Income Fund
All our transactions are secured by real and tangible assets. Every home we finance is secured by a first position mortgage meaning Manzil’s investors have to be paid back first before anyone else can earn a profit.
Higher Returns, Lower Risk
Manzil’s Halal income fund targets a 4% return. When compared to similar conventional mortgage funds issued by other financial institutions, this return is substantially higher with a similar if not better low risk profile.
What is our Mortgage Investment Fund and Why is it Halal?
A mortgage fund is an investment vehicle where individual investors pool their investment capital through unit acquisition.
A Trust structure enables the mutual fund to escape paying income tax on income earned if it distributes all net realized capital gains, income and dividends, after expenses to unit holders.
