The Responsible Finance Podcast

Australia’s first sukuk mandate adds diversification to a Shariah-compliant responsible investment super fund

April 7, 2020
  • Shariah screens limit the number of defensive assets available for asset managers in narrow  markets where  financial institutions represent 25-30% of the market

  • Investment managers can offset some of the additional risk by using ESG integration strategies, as well as investing in global sukuk
  • The institutionalization of Shari'ah standards gives Islamic asset managers a  leg up compared to ESG in terms of clarity about how their investment  process is affected by their approach to responsible finance
