Stanbic IBTC Ethical Fund


The Stanbic IBTC Ethical Fund (“SIEF”) is Nigeria’s first quoted socially responsible mutual fund that allows subscribers to make profitable investments without compromising their religious beliefs and/or principles. The fund’s objective is achieved by investing at least 60% of its assets in equities of blue chip companies listed on The Nigerian Stock Exchange while retaining a maximum of 40% of its total assets in Fixed Income Securities

 The fund was launched in 2005 at a par value of N1.00 per unit and its primary objective is to achieve long-term capital appreciation of its assets by investing in a carefully selected portfolio of high quality socially responsible equity securities quoted on The Nigerian Stock Exchange. The fund follows a socially responsible approach to investing and excludes investments in Breweries and Tobacco sectors as well as companies whose activities are considered harmful to the society.

Units of the Fund are issued at the prevailing offer price while redemption out of the Fund are done at the prevailing bid price. The Fund is re-valued at the end of each working day to reflect any changes in the prices of the underlying stocks which means that the value of units held may change from day to day.
