The list of these three funds includes the “Shuaa High Yield Sukuk Fund”, “Active Stars Fund” and “Nujoom Balanced Fund”. These funds are the first investment funds compliant with Islamic law to be launched on the Abu Dhabi Global Market according to the structure Compact Cell Companies (ICC).
These funds are expected to be one of the largest investment platforms in the Abu Dhabi Global Market and a major source of Shuaa’s activities in this market. “Shuaa GMC Ltd.” – wholly owned by SHUAA Capital and subject to the supervision of the Financial Services Regulatory Authority at the Abu Dhabi Global Market – is responsible for managing these funds and other activities related to the Shuaa Funds platform in the Abu Dhabi Global Market.

This is due to the insufficient number of fund managers. “Those who are able to offer a wide range of options in the field of Islamic financial instruments, in addition to that, the funds currently available are either funds of a limited size for managed assets or closed funds, which is reflected in the limited options of investment strategies.”
Al-Siddiqi added: “The prevalence of uncertainty in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic has been reflected in the global markets, which makes the funds that we offered an exceptional investment opportunity that would not be available under normal circumstances. Our pioneering funds were designed, which are the first Islamic funds to be implemented. Launching it in the Abu Dhabi Global Market according to the ICC structure, to give qualified investors from institutions operating in the insurance and pension sector more options, in parallel with our clear trend to support the Islamic investment sector.
