Saturna Sdn Bhd Wins Best ESG Investment Initiative at Islamic Business & Finance Southeast Asia Awards

Saturna Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of US-based Saturna Capital Corporation, received the Best ESG Investment Initiative Award during the Islamic Business & Finance Southeast Asia Awards held on December 4, 2018. The awards, which recognize exceptional performance and positive contributions to the global Islamic business and finance community, reflect peer-based evaluations resulting from an online poll held on www.cpifinancial.net. Nearly 5,000 online votes were cast across 28 categories by bankers and financiers active in Southeast Asias Islamic financial community.

We are honored to have been awarded Best ESG Investment Initiative at the second annual Southeast Asia Awards, said Shahariah Shaharudin, acting President of Saturna Sdn Bhd. At Saturna, we follow a sustainable Islamic investment process. Moving forward, we will continue to focus on serving our clients and community well by putting our investors interests first, and by offering innovative, sustainable investment products. We are proud to have earned accolades from the international Islamic finance community.

In June 2017, Saturna Sdn Bhd joined the leading edge of asset managers integrating Islamic and sustainable investment strategies with the launch of the ICD Global Sustainable Fund. Partnering with the Islamic Corporation for the Development of the Private Sector (ICD), the private sector arm of the Islamic Development Bank, the Fund invests in equities of global issuers that demonstrate sustainable characteristics while also meeting the Islamic investment guidelines of the Accounting and Auditing Organization for Islamic Financial Institutions (AAOIFI). Saturnas global team of analysts and portfolio managers rate the sustainability of equities, preferring those that are generally larger, more established, consistently profitable, financially strong, and with robust environmental, social, and governance (ESG) policies.
