Recognizing the urgent need for indexes, which are a real gauge of the global equity markets and well-established standards, Standard & Poor’s applied Sharia screens to three headline indexes – the S&P 500, the S&P Europe 350 and the S&P Japan 500. The results are the S&P 500 Sharia, the S&P Europe 350 Sharia and the S&P Japan 500 Sharia indexes. These are gauges of three major markets and, by screening out stocks that are not Sharia compliant, ideal investment vehicles for observant Muslims. In 2007, Standard & Poor’s launched the S&P GCC Sharia Indexes and the S&P Pan Asia Sharia Index, to cater to the demand for a benchmark Shariah product for those regions. Inclusive in this series are leading equity indexes screened for Shariah compliance, which are liquid and investable. The indexes are maintained for compliance on a periodic basis.
