About Amana Mutual Funds Trust

At Saturna Capital and the Amana Mutual Funds Trust, we endeavor to align our investments with our principles.

Our Funds favor companies with low price-to-earnings multiples, strong balance sheets, and proven businesses. They follow a value-oriented approach consistent with Islamic finance principles. Generally, these principles require that investors avoid interest and investments in businesses such as liquor, pornography, gambling, and banks. The Funds avoid bonds and other conventional fixed-income securities.

Saturna Capital selects investments in companies that to its knowledge do not violate the requirements of the Islamic faith at the time of investment. To ensure that investments continue to meet the requirements of the Islamic faith, Saturna Capital engages Amanie Advisors Sdn Bhd, a leading consultant specializing in Islamic finance.

The Amana Funds limit the securities they purchase to those consistent with Islamic and ESG principles. This limits opportunities and may affect performance.

Watch Amana Mutual Funds Trust founders, Nick Kaiser and Yaqub Mirza, discuss the creation and history of the Trust.

2023 Impact Report

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) analysis is a useful framework for understanding operations and informing investment decisions.
