  • Tax free

    Our ISA provides a tax free return when you cash in, transfer to another provider, or on your death

  • Shariah compliant fund

    An investment fund which meets all of the requirements of Shariah law and the principles of Islamic Finance. The Fund will only invest in Shariah-compliant companies and approved financial instruments.

    The Fund is overseen by an independent Shariah Committee that is responsible for:

    Agreeing the investment objectives and policies

    Advising the fund managers regarding compliance with Shariah principles

    Establishing the principles for calculating an appropriate percentage of ‘non Halal’ income and approving suitable charities to receive it

  • Where does the Fund invest?

    The Fund is managed by a specialist team at HSBC. The HSBC Islamic Global Equity Index Fund  invests in diverse areas including Technology, Health Care, Consumer Goods, Industrials, Oil and Gas, Consumer Services and Basic Materials.

    The Fund does not include companies in the following sectors: Weapons and Defence, Pork related products, Tobacco, Alcohol, Financial Services or Entertainment sectors.

  • How do the charges work on your ISA?

    There are no fees when you pay money in, transfer, or withdraw money, or close the ISA. The only fee is a 1.5% annual amount.

    This is taken out in small amounts each week when the ISA Fund value is calculated. We take approximately 1/52 of 1.5%, so that over the year, we will deduct a total of 1.5%. The actual amount taken each week will depend upon your ISA value each week.

    As an example, if your ISA was worth £1,000 every week throughout the year, your charges would be 28.8p per week. Over the whole year therefore your charges would total £15.

Things to consider

You will find more information about the ISA in the Key Information Documents and Key Features Document. Below are some important points that we want you to be aware of:

  • Please note that this is a risk investment – there is no guarantee that you will get your money back. The value of your Shariah ISA can go down in value as well as up, and is based upon the performance of the underlying investments in the Shariah Fund.
  • There is an annual contribution limit set by the Government for ISAs (in total for Cash ISAs and Stocks and Shares ISAs if someone contributes to both types). This is currently £20,000.
  • Inflation will have an effect on the future purchasing value of your investment.
  • HMRC could change the tax status of ISAs in the future.
