Russell-IdealRatings Islamic Index is a global index reflecting the global market performance for Shariah compliant investors. The Russell-IdealRatings Islamic Index offers investors an accurate and complete global-equity market index that reflects established Shariah investment guidelines. Combining the deep experience of the Russell Indexes and the oversight of IdealRatings, these indexes are the best-available representation of the global Shariah compliant opportunity set.
Based on the broad and deep Russell Global Index universe, specific sector and financial based filters are applied to ensure the exclusion of non-compliant companies, according to Shariah law. After going through the screening process, the Index includes approximately 3,200 securities from 45 countries, covering emerging and developed regions. The result is a series of indexes that reflect the best possible subset of the global market for Shariah-compliant investors. To ensure full compliance with Shariah principles, the index is approved and monitored by an independent board of some of the most highly distinguished and respected Islamic scholars in the field.
