There are four broad categories that you can invest in as a Muslim at the moment (we are constantly on the look-out for more and will be adding these to our page on an ongoing basis). Within each of these categories  we have curated the most reliable, regulated and reputable providers and compare between them.

Hours and hours of painstaking research has gone into IFG – and its all available for free. So please use the links below when you do sign up with the providers. We then get a very small fee but this allows us to pay the bills and keep providing this service for the community!

Stocks

Stock Market & Other Funds

A list of hands-off funds offering exposure to stock market and other assets (e.g. sukuk, property) with their 3-year annualised returns.
Annualised return means the return over the last 3 years, expressed in yearly figures. Note that these figures will be heavily skewed by the performance of the stock market as a whole which has, in recent years, been largely positive. Past performance is not an indication of future performance.

Start-ups

Start-up investing: a savvy way to make massive returns.

We have been investing in start-ups for a number of years.

Reason being, some start-ups succeed spectacularly (think Google, Facebook, Amazon, Dropbox). Early investors in those start-ups have literally made millions. An early $10,000 investor in Facebook would have made $20 million when it listed on the stock market.

At IFG we get presented deals before they’re public – and those are the best deals.

This year alone, we have helped high-net-worth Muslim investors invest £2m+ into start-ups alongside us.

Find out how you can get involved on our Start-up Funding page.

Savings Accounts

Halal Savings Accounts - Fixed Term

A comparison of sharia-compliant savings account with fixed terms. This means that the money must stay in the account for the length of time given in the product name. For example, in the "Al Rayan Fixed 1 Year" account, your money is locked in for 1 year with no option to take out the money until the end of the fixed term.

Halal Savings Accounts - Notice Accounts

These accounts are less rigid than the fixed term accounts. You still have to lock your money away, but you can withdraw if you give an agreed number of days' notice. You get less return, but if you want quicker access to your cash than a fixed term account, you should consider these.
