Saturna Launches Innovative Shariah Investment Platform

Saturna Sdn Bhd, a leading shariah-compliant financial services firm, has launched an innovative digital platform for individuals looking to invest in shariah-compliant funds.

The platform offers a seamless user experience, enabling potential investors to begin their investment journey in just a few clicks, with the guidance of Saturna’s deep expertise in the world of Islamic finance.

Unlike other offerings currently available on the market, Saturna imposes no sales nor redemption charges and no hidden fees, offering flexibility as its funds do not come with a minimum holding period.

Saturna’s digital platform is designed to be accessible to anyone, regardless of their experience or investment budget. The launch of the online platform was officiated by Pn. Ruslena Ramli, Director of Digital Finance and Islamic Digital Economy of Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), who expressed hope that more organizations within the Islamic financing space will adopt innovative solutions to grow the industry further.

Shariah and ESG

In addition to complying with Islamic principles, Saturna’s funds also adhere to global Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) standards, where investments are made in companies engaging in socially-responsible and environmentally-friendly business practices or products. Saturna sees ESG measures as complementary to shariah-compliant initiatives, as both are driven by sustainability considerations, mitigate volatile risk-taking, and value long-term growth.

The launch event also featured a forum discussion on future trends that will shape the investment scene in the coming year, with panellists from Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), PTPTN, and the International Centre for Education in Islamic Finance (INCEIF). Since entering the Malaysian market in 2010, Saturna has established itself as a reputable and transparent Islamic financial firm, listing the National Higher Education Corporation Fund (also known as Perbadanan Tabung Pendidikan Tinggi Nasional or PTPTN) and the Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) as among its largest corporate investors.

Saturna manages two popular shariah-compliant equity trust funds in Malaysia, namely the ICD Global Sustainable Fund and the ASEAN Equity fund, both of which offer investors exposure to global and regional investments respectively. Both funds are authorized by the Securities Commission Malaysia and invest in a diversified portfolio that favors stable earnings for the long-term. To sign up for Saturna’s digital platform or learn more about its investment portfolio, individuals can visit the company’s website.
