SBR: Please tell us more about the product. 
SEDCO Capital Global Funds (SCGF) is a family of funds covering a range of asset classes. Its primary objective is to provide a diversified set of investment opportunities in global markets, across a number of different asset classes to qualified investors seeking socially and ethically responsible, Shariah compliant investments.

Each fund invests in primarily one class of assets, ie, fixed income, listed equities, real estate, commodities and so on. Each fund is managed by best in class asset managers under the supervision of SEDCO Capital.

SBR: What is significant/unique about this product? 
The SCGF platform itself is now one of the world’s largest and most diverse ranges of Shariah compliant funds. Some of the funds are sophisticated and unique investment solutions that investors may not find elsewhere.

Other funds offer best-in-class asset management at institutional pricing. All funds comply with Shariah principles and offer investors access to investment opportunities at competitive prices.

SBR: Why should investors consider investing in it?
Investors are able to gain access to market leading asset management at institutional-like pricing, while ensuring compliance with Shariah law. SEDCO Capital has seen a clear demand for sophisticated, be-spoke investment solutions and has developed a family of funds to meet this demand.

SBR: Anything you'd like to add?
Shariah investment has the ability to appeal to a wide range of investors. At its core, Shariah investment is simply a form of responsible investing which delivers returns over the long term because it invests in strong, low-leveraged companies. These are very companies that deliver sustainable returns to investors.

At SEDCO Capital we believe that our investment solutions can appeal to any institutional investor wishing to invest in a responsible manner – not just those with a Shariah compliant focus.
