17/08/2014 10:46 AST

SEDCO Capital has announced the assigning of the external Shari’ah audit of its $160 million real estate funds to Shariyah Review Bureau (SRB). The two funds which SRB will periodically be auditing as to the implementation of Shari’ah guidelines are SEDCO Capital Partners Group Opportunities Fund and SEDCO Capital Real Estate Income Fund I.

SRB will independently ensure that investments, Zakah verification, and reporting functions are conducted in accordance with the Shari’ah guidelines set out by SEDCO Capital’s Shari’ah Supervisory Board.

Mr. Khalid Gama, SEDCO Capital’s internal Shari’ah Advisor added, “We pride ourselves to be a fully Shari’ah complaint investment and solution provider since the start of SEDCO Capital in 2010 and SEDCO Group operations in the 1970’s. Our internal Shari’ah compliant approval process is very thorough as is done through close collaboration with top scholars in the Shari’ah industry; SRB’s audit will complement our process and add credibility to our already detailed process."

Mr. Yasser S. Dahlawi, CEO and Founder of SRB said, “With the phenomenal faith based growth in Shari’ah compliant assets in the Middle East, and particularly in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the market for Islamic real estate investment assets is poised for continued growth. Our company is at the forefront of building innovative Shari’ah supervisory structures and providing independent Shari’ah Audit service delivery."

Dahlawi adds, “Our Shari’ah Compliance audit will help build on further integration in real estate governance, procedural reviews, and investor reporting. We are very excited to expand and offer our services to SEDCO Capital to better serve the Shari’ah compliance interests of the funds stakeholders.”
