LONDON: Wahed Invest (“Wahed”), the UK’s first Halal online investment platform, has launched a London bus ad campaign to publicise the availability of its product. The advert, which is now live on 185 different buses across the capital, displays Wahed’s commitment to “Halal investing made simple”.
Since its UK launch in August 2018, Wahed has been helping British Muslims to invest in a globally diversified portfolio of ethically responsible stocks, Sukuk and gold with as little as £100 minimum investment. Many British Muslims currently feel excluded from mainstream financial services, and its online investment platform is now empowering them to invest their money for the first time.
Wahed is showing strong direction in the field of Islamic finance and has successfully received associate membership with the Accounting and Auditing Organization for Islamic Financial Institutions (“AAOIFI”), a not-for-profit organization that regulates and standardizes accounting, auditing and governance practices for the Islamic finance industry in line with international standards that comply with Islamic rules.
Commenting on the membership, Junaid Wahedna, CEO and founder of Wahed said: “As Wahed continues to grow and innovate, it’s important that our clients and partners know that we are fully committed to halal practices. Wahed’s qualification for the AAOFI membership is a step towards reposing confidence with our customers and demonstrates our adherence to sound halal practices and policies.”
It is pertinent to mention here that Wahed Invest is the UK’s first Halal online investment platform, allowing savers from all income brackets to easily invest in a globally diversified portfolio of ethically responsible stocks, Islamic bonds and gold.
Designed specifically for the Islamic community, Wahed’s investment portfolios are approved by an Ethical Review Board, enabling Muslims to feel confident that their investments are ethically sound and Halal. Wahed Invest was established in New York in 2015 by Junaid Wahedna. For more information about Wahed Invest, visit wahedinvest.com/uk.
