highly-liquid fund: Misr Takaful Fund is a money market fund that offers daily subscriptions and daily redemption. It is considered a low-risk, liquid investment instrument. Investors enjoy compounded daily returns to ensure that they get the most flexibility out of their investment.

Our first Sharia-compliant fund: The fund invests mainly in Egyptian T-Bills designated as Shariah-compliant by an internal committee led by Dr. Ali Gomaa, the former Grand Mufti of Egypt.

low-risk way to invest: The fund invests in low-risk instruments, including up to 90% in Egyptian T-bills and 49% in Egyptian T-Bonds.

The fund is undergoing a subscription period that will end on 29/03/2022 at 4 pm, the minimum investment amount is EGP 1,000 during the subscription period. After the subscription closes, you can buy with as little as 1 certificate which is starting at EGP 100.

How does it work ?

Everyone who invests in the fund owns certificates issued by this fund. These certificates give everyone the same mix of investments in the same proportion. As the fund’s value as a whole rises or falls, each person’s certificate value will go up and down with it.
