EPF considering launching first Islamic fund.
KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 18) — The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) is
looking at growing its Islamic-compliant asset exposure, a move which
has prompted the pension fund to deliberate on its potential first
EPF deputy CEO for investments Datuk Shahril Ridza Ridzuan said the EPF is still assessing the feasibility of a planned Syariah investment scheme.
“It could be a fund and we are still studying the proposal,” Shahril told reporters at the Global Islamic Finance Forum today.
“If we launch it, it will be our first,” he said without elaborating. According to Shahril, Islamic compliant assets comprise 30% of EPF’s portfolio and the pension fund’s aim to grow its exposure in this asset class is driven by demand from EPF contributors.
“We want to match our asset pool with market demand,” he said without specifying a target for EPF’s Islamic-based investment portfolio.
