Stanbic IBTC Imaan Fund


The primary objective of the Stanbic IBTC Imaan Fund (“Imaan Fund or the Fund”) is to achieve long term capital appreciation of its assets by investing in Shari’ah compliant equity securities approved by the Shari’ah Advisory Committee of the Fund.

The Fund invests a minimum of 60% of its assets in equities of Shari’ah compliant companies listed on The Nigerian Stock Exchange while retaining a maximum of 40% in non-interest earning fixed income securities (i.e. Sukuk).
This was originally introduced to private investors in 2011 as Shari’ah Compliant Portfolio and has now been registered with The Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) as a publicly traded mutual fund. Investors can benefit from the asset allocation and performance of the fund with as little as N5,000.00 only.

Units of the fund are issued at the prevailing offer price as is equivalent to the market value of subscription. The fund is re-valued at the end of each working day to reflect any changes in the price of the underlying stocks as well as interest earned for that day. This means that the value of units held may change from day to day.
