Wahed Invest launches new UK wide campaign
News on 7th June 2019
- The “Put your money where your heart is” campaign aims to promote ethical investing in the UK
- Adverts live on London tubes, rail and bus networks across the UK
London, 6 June 2019 – Wahed Invest, the UK’s first Halal online investment platform, has today launched a new nationwide campaign, publicising its ethical investing service on the London underground, major rail and bus networks.
Since launching in the UK in August 2018, Wahed has been helping British Muslims and other investors looking to invest in a portfolio of ethically responsible stocks, Sukuk and gold with as little as £100. The campaign, “Put your money where your heart is” aims to promote Wahed’s ethical investing to British Muslims, who have been neglected by mainstream financial services, with 80% of Muslims deemed not to be “financially included”. The campaign, which will run throughout June, will be featured on major bus networks across London and cities around the UK. In addition, Wahed’s advert will also be featured on all London underground networks and major rail stations
Junaid Wahedna, CEO and founder of Wahed Invest said:
“We are driven by giving Muslims and others who wish to invest in an ethical way, the opportunity to invest in ethical products and investments that generate a fair return. Given the UK’s strategic positioning as one of the top Islamic Finance hubs and its thriving fintech sector, we believe this focus enables us to engage with a significant proportion of Muslims who want to invest but find that most traditional investment products are not halal compliant.”
