The Islamic wealth and fund management was first emerged in the 1960s when the investors sought alternatives to the conventional forms of investment, particularly interest- dealing in conventional banks which is prohibited in Islam and unethical for non- Muslims as well. The Islamic funds market is one of the fastest growing sectors of financial industry not only in Muslim but also in non-Muslim countries. The primary characteristic that distinguishes an Islamic fund from conventional investment is its compliance with Shariah laws which requires the fund managers to adhere to Shariah.
