Islamic-based investments become more accessible to a wider audience

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – March 2, 2023 – Saturna Sdn Bhd announced the release of a new digital platform for individual investors, allowing a wider audience access to Saturna’s investing expertise to ethically and securely grow their wealth. The online portal offers features such as e-Signature and DuitNow-enabled capabilities.

Saturna officially launched the new portal at an event at the Four Seasons Hotel in Kuala Lumpur on March 2, 2023. The event included a panel discussion between industry professionals on future trends in the investment world for the coming year.

The online portal is designed to be user-friendly, convenient, and secure. "It's accessible enough for anyone to start investing in Shariah-compliant solutions instantly, regardless of their experience or investment budget," said Shahariah Shaharudin, president of Saturna Sdn Bhd.

“I believe the events of the past few years, from the 2008 financial crisis to the COVID-19 pandemic, have inspired a paradigm shift in the way we view investing, and increased the appetite for socially conscious metrics,” said Ms. Shaharudin. “With our extensive expertise in Islamic-based fund management, Saturna is well-positioned to meet this demand with alternatives to conventional financial planning solutions.”
