Australiastan: Sharia-compliant Banking Introduced in Australia

A MUSLIM wealth manager has begun the process of opening Australia to Islamic investment with the launch of the first local sharia-compliant equity fund.   

The goal of Crescent Wealth, Australia's only Islamic wealth manager, is to establish a range of investment products, including superannuation, to give Australians access to the previously untapped $1.4 trillion Islamic investment market.

It says the equity fund, Crescent Australian Equity Fund, will also give Australians a socially responsible investment option.

Crescent Wealth managing director Talal Yassine said he believed there was a lot of "pent-up demand" for Islamic investment opportunities.

"As Australians we have zero of that market," Mr Yassine said. Islamic funds need to comply with sharia law and so will not invest in industries involved in alcohol, weapons, pornography and gambling.
The major banks are also out, because, in accordance with sharia principles, Crescent Wealth cannot invest in anything to do with interest.

Islamic law bans charging interest, so investors need to make returns that are linked to the profits of an enterprise.
