At Sharjah Islamic
Bank, we aim:
We aim to achieve the maximum return from a portfolio which has been delegated by the client to be managed by the bank. The bank has to balance the parameters which define a good investment i.e. security, liquidity and return. The goal is to obtain the highest return for the client by engaging in a highly disciplined, well diversified investment process.
The bank, through its strategic regional/global partner institutions, structures and offers mutual funds to our customers in different types of asset classes. Our goal is to provide the maximum return possible by engaging in a highly disciplined, well diversified investment process. Furthermore, it is normal for the bank to invest a substantial portion of its own monies in the funds to indicate the bank's strong commitment to managing these funds prudently and efficiently.
