WHY WE WERE FORMED
EJARAH GLOBAL WAS ESTABLISHED IN 2013 TO PROVIDE INSTITUTIONAL CLIENTS WITH ACCESS TO SHARIAH-COMPLIANT EQUIPMENT LEASING OPPORTUNITIES FROM THE USA, CANADA, THE UK, WESTERN EUROPE, AND AUSTRALASIA.
Shariah-compliant equipment leasing fills a market void that exists between cash, short-term commodity transactions, and long-term asset classes. This is described by Ernst & Young’s Islamic Funds and Investments Report as an ‘asset class gap’. Leasing also offers institutional clients a combination of reliable and attractive returns from asset-backed transactions without the high volatility of equities and real estate.
The ‘asset class gap’ lies between the extremes of low-yielding Murabaha and highly volatile equities and real estate. Ejarah Global bridges that gap with reliable and attractive returns generated by Shariah-compliant equipment leasing.
Ejarah Global is in a unique position to supply institutional clients with fixed income opportunities backed by Shariah-compliant international equipment leasing transactions. We offer these opportunities to institutional clients through various strategies including sukuk issues, equity participations, investment certificates, and bespoke equipment lease portfolios.
