In a groundbreaking move towards inclusive and faith-aligned investing, i-invest recently announced the launch of the Mudarabah Term Deposit (MTD) on its revolutionary app.
Mudarabah, a revered Islamic financial concept, epitomizes a partnership contract between an investor who provides capital and an Investment Manager. This distinctive arrangement involves the capital provider entrusting funds for investment to be skillfully managed by the investment
manager. The resulting profits are then shared based on a pre-agreed Profit-Sharing Ratio (PSR).
In the banking sector, Mudarabah has evolved into an investment product, offering a Shariah-compliant alternative to conventional fixed deposit products, aptly named Mudarabah Term Deposit (MTD). In this arrangement, customers act as investors, depositing funds into their accounts. The Profit-Sharing Ratio is collaboratively determined by the parties, ensuring a
transparent and mutually agreed-upon structure. The deposited funds are then strategically deployed to permitted investment sectors by the partner bank. At the end of the period, the gross profit is shared between the customer and the bank based on the pre-determined sharing
“At i-invest, we are committed to inclusivity and providing our customers with innovative investment opportunities that align with their values,” remarked Tobi Olusoga, Chief Operating Officer at i-invest. “The Mudarabah Term Deposit product is a testament to our dedication to ethical and compliant investing, ensuring that our customers’ investments resonate with their values and beliefs.”
i-invest’s Mudarabah offering is a carefully curated investment package, embodying Shariah compliance at its core. Upon maturity, the capital, along with the profits, is returned to the investor, reinforcing the commitment to transparency and ethical financial practices.
The Mudarabah Term Deposit is poised to empower investors seeking a Shariah-compliant and inclusive investment experience and can be accessed by downloading the i-invest app, completing registration, and subscribing to the ethical investing feature.
