Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

We believe that investors should not compromise on their ethical and moral principles to achieve attractive returns. If anything, we believe that investors should be rewarded with higher returns and more meaningful investment experiences for upholding such values.
In S7C, we have made it our mission to make this possible by offering Halal investment solutions that are environmentally and social sound, and that are aligned with good governance practices. Sharia, environmental, social and governance (SESG) factors are integrated into our investment process and are a key component of our fundamental analysis to identify potential sources of alpha or risk reduction.
