Making money, wealth and personal finance accessible to Muslims
We do this for one reason: to make our community better-off
We want to take Muslims from being among the poorest in society to the wealthiest.
We think that this is a key ingredient to deal with problems like discrimination, under-representation and poverty.
The IFG Story
IFG was started by Ibrahim and Mohsin back in 2015 as a humble blog alongside our corporate careers.
We ran it as a community service for 4 years. We're in that odd (and geeky) group of people who get very passionate researching and writing about investments and personal finance. We still got married though, so no long-term harm done.
Ibrahim finished off his alim course in 2018 and we both qualified as solicitors in 2019 and decided to see if we could make IFG more sustainable.
Alhamdulilah the whole thing snowballed and in late 2019 we quit our corporate careers, convinced our wives that working on a startup was a great move and dove in.
Our mission is the same it has been from the start. We want to help the Muslim community across the world get back to a level financial playing field. We've alhamdulilah come a fair way:
- Ijazah in the memorisation of the Qur’an from Egypt
- MA in Islamic Banking and Finance
- Alimiyyah Degree (Al Salam Institute)
- Lawyer at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP and Ashurst LLP
- Diploma in Investment Advice & Financial Planning & Certificate in Investment Management.

What Investors & Founders Say
I had no hesitation in investing in the Cur8 fund. They have a great track record and get into great deals.
When it comes to my investments, I’ve always tried to build a balanced portfolio, but finding first-rate alternative assets that are also Sharia-compliant can be a struggle. These high quality deals are often very difficult to access too.
I started investing with Cur8 with other family members a few years ago and have been very impressed with the quality of investments Cur8 has offered.
The Cur8 team is very communicative and assuring. There is transparency in the process and the platform provides me with all legal documentation in one place.
