The rough guide to the Islamic Investment world (in South Africa)
So this is my rough guide to Islamic investments within the South African Universe (it can apply globally, except my examples is all South African based). Hope it is informative and encourages halal investing. Suggestions welcome
Section 1: Investment Universe
Islamic Bank fixed deposits
About: Invest your money for a fixed period (1 month up to 5 years). Get profit when period is completed Pros: Reliable profit , Low financial risk, low Islamic risk : covered by a board of Shariah scholars Cons: Low profit rates.
FNB Islamic Fixed deposit.
Absa Islamic Fixed deposit
Standard Bank Islamic Fixed deposit
About: Collective investment - managed by investment company, protected by SA law, typically invests in equities, sukuks and property Pros: Plenty of choice, Provided by registered Financial Service Providers, Sharia Boards , diversification Cons: Typically High fees, .
Old Mutual Albarakah equity fund
Oasis Cresent Equity Fund
Kagiso Islamic Equity Fund
Many options: only a few examples listed.
About: Collective investment Pros: low fees, Provided by registered Financial Service Providers, Sharia Boards , diversification Cons: only one option in SA, heavily weighted on Resources
NewFunds Sharia top 40 ETF
About: Pick your own stocks off the exchange Pros: High profit potential, Cons: Very Risky, No Islamic oversight (hence need to do your own screening)
Platform: Easy Equities (low fees platform available in SA. NO Leverage/Margin, Remember to buy/sell whole shares only).
Lazy guide to choosing "Sharia stocks" : Get the constituents of islamic unit trusts, invest in those.
NB: Remember to do dividends purification
About: Tried and test property Pros: Stable Asset, Tangible, Straightforward, Zakah benefits, Cons: High capital outlay, expensive legal costs (transfebond registration) , Not very liquid,
Banks for islamic loans:
FNB (Islamic bond)
paid on rental income , not on property value (if intention is to invest)
paid on property value: if intention is to sell property in near term (refurbish/fix and sell, etc).
Interest is Haram. No two ways about it. Luckily we have two banks that can provide Islamic loans (or at least as close as possible)
Custom Wealth Solutions
About: Customized Wealth management and investments Pros: Professional advice, custom solution Cons: Available exclusively to high net worth individuals, Investment advise appears to be fee based
Side note - I do not have any experience/knowledge. Would be great to hear if anyone has any experience here.
Banks such as FNB provide Islamic Private banking, with financial advisors (but they tend to push unit trusts, endowment policies, etc).
Section 2: Definitely not halal
Margin based investing: Margin = interest = haram. Also very risky
Futures contracts: Shorting, going long, all CFD's and futures contracts are impermissible. Because a condition for a halal investment is that the underlying asset must be owned
Forex: Or at least forex based on CFD's and margins. Buying dollars to travel should be perfectly fine.
Stocks/Equities that primarily deal in haram activities: Gambling, pork, etc
Section 3: Grey Areas
Crypto ( Bitcoin ,etc) : In theory these should be more "halal" than fiat currency (what all money in the world is) however there are differences of opinion.
Shares : There are grey areas : Most companies has an element of haram income (interest, etc). Scholars have devised ratios to to filter out "islamic stocks" from haram stocks (30-33% max debt, max 5% haram income, liquid ratios, etc). It is for this reason these stocks requires dividend purification.
However you should be aware of this before venturing into to stocks as you might not be comfortable with that thought (This also affects EFTs, Unit trusts, etc). 3 Easy Equities: Easy equities makes it cheap and easy to own equities. However I would at all times buy/sell only whole shares and not fractional shares. Fractional shares are done as a CFD (a bit different from a forex CFD). You get all the benefits of ownership such as dividends and capital gains on a pro rate basis. But you do not actually own the CFD until you buy enough CFD to get a real whole share. That being said, it is still grey, best to avoid fractional shares entirely 4. Halal Forex Accounts: Somehow these are marketed that way. Here's a link to (Islamic Finance Guru) who has a bit more knowledge on this. (Note: I am not affiliated in any way or get any benefit)
Section 4: Conclusion
I sincerely hope this helps , and encourages to invest in the Islamic world. Any ideas, inputs and suggestions welcome. Disclaimer 1 : Corrections welcome, I am not a learned scholar, this is not financial advice, you bear the responsibility & consequences of your own decisions/investments Disclaimer 2 : At some point FNB Sharia board quit , they subsequently hired a new board. They don't however make it easy to find who is in the board from their website. However the information can be found in news websites.

Parang pilit lang na kinoconnect to drugs. In 2009, a UNICEF study cited these effects include not being able to adjust socially, gender role confusion, vulnerability to abuse, being more materialistic.
Andanar (or Duterte for that matter) does not cite studies or sources for their claim.
Andanar claims that the govt spoke w/ 150 OFWs in Dubai who were maltreated by their employers. Dubai OFWs earn up to 1500 dirhams only.
At current forex, that's up to P21,113.12
Andanar: Most of you here in the UK are from middle class families. He said OFWs in London are lucky and have better wages.
Andanar enumerated the latest SWS&PulseAsia surveys and said that Duterte is supported by a great majority of the Filipinos.
The SWS Survey showed a drastic drop in both approval and trust ratings for the president.
Andanar calls @TrillanesSonny & @SenLeiladeLima as “maiingay”. He asked: Bakit hindi nakukulong si Trillanes? Crowd erupts in laughter. Andanar claims that Trillanes is not in jail because Duterte respects his freedom of speech.
Andanar to EU: Bahala na sila sa buhay nila. Mag-iyot na lang sila. Crowd laughs and chants “Duterte! Duterte!”.
Pag kabastusan, si Duterte agad ang tinatawag. Bakit kaya?
Andanar: Napakagaling ng ating pangulo. Siya lang ang pangulo sa SEA ang naka-talo sa ISIS in 140+ days. Andanar claims that Duterte managed to defeat “ISIS & Maute” even though the terrorists were supported by ISIS in the middle east.
Thank you brave men and women of the AFP. Duterte didn't fire a single shot towards the Maute. And is in fact on record telling the Maute to burn Marawi
Andanar: Yung mga maiingay na pala-iyot, ang problema sa kanila hanggang ingay lang. Wala naman silang napatunayan.
Andanar: Yung mga Prime Ministers and Presidents of other countries are all supportive of President Duterte.
Teka, diba galit kayo sa EU kasi nakikialam?
READ: Other countries = China.
Andanar: Yung mga nasa baba lang ang maiingay dahil nga kulang sila sa iyot.
Andanar enumerates all SEA countries and said that all those countries have no complains about President Duterte.
Martin Andanar thanks Malcolm Conlan, an ambulance crew in the UK, for his support of President Duterte.
Libre yan, hindi katulad ke sass. Pero akala ko ba ayaw niyo ng may foreigner na nakikialam?
Andanar on @TrillanesSonny: Panahon pa ni Gloria, inaway niya. Inaway nyasi Angie Reyes. Walang nirerespeto si Trillanes.Aabutin din ng karma si @TrillanesSonny. Kakarmahin din yan. Yung kanyang bunganga, hindi talaga mapigilan.
Wag pahalata Andanar.
Andanar said the government is doing its best to reform the country for the betterment of all.
