The FTSE Bursa Malaysia EMAS Shariah Index has been designed to provide investors with a broad benchmark for Shariah-compliant investment. Constituents are screened according to the Malaysian Securities Commission’s Shariah Advisory Council (SAC) screening methodology. This index applies the principles set out by the SAC in the design of this index. The general criteria stipulate that Shariah-compliant companies must not be involved in any of the following core activities: financial services based on riba (interest); gambling; manufacture or sale of non-halal products or related products; conventional insurance; entertainment activities that are non-permissible according to Shariah; manufacture or sale of tobacco-based products or related products; stockbroking or share trading in Shariah non-compliant securities and, other activities deemed non-permissible according to Shariah.
The index is calculated based on price and total return methodologies, both real time intra-second and end-of-day.
