Securities and Exchange Commission under the Investment Advisers Act of

PAST PERFORMANCE IS NO GUARANTEE OF FUTURE RESULTS, AND ANY
EXPECTED RETURNS OR HYPOTHETICAL PROJECTIONS MAY NOT REFLECT
ACTUAL FUTURE PERFORMANCE. FURTHERMORE, PAST RETURNS MAY
REFLECT THE PERFORMANCE OF ASSETS FOR A FINITE TIME, OR DURING A
PERIOD OF EXTREME MARKET ACTIVITY. ALL INVESTMENTS INVOLVE RISK
AND MAY LOSE MONEY. There can be no assurance that an investment
mix or any projected or actual performance shown on the Site will lead to
the expected results shown or perform in any predictable manner. It
should not be assumed that investors will experience returns in the future, if
any, comparable to those shown or that any or all of Wahed’s Clients
experienced such returns.
Wahed provides Clients with financial advice that is based on the Nobel
Prize winning Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT). We select proportions of
various asset classes rather than individual securities to attempt to
maximize a portfolio’s expected return for a given amount of portfolio risk,
or equivalently minimize risk for a given level of expected return. We use
Mean Variance Optimization to evaluate every possible combination of
the following asset classes: US equities, foreign developed markets
equities, emerging markets equities, real estate, commodities and fixed
income funds. In addition, we continually review the population of all
Ethically compliant securities, giving preference to ETFs, in order to identify
the most appropriate securities to represent each asset class. Read more
about our Investment Methodology.
ETF Selection Disclosure
We invest our client’s money in ETFs as they help us reduce the
unnecessary overheads. Our ETFs selection process is aimed primarily to
select those ETFs which can provide the desired asset class exposure with
the lease tracking error. Although our selection process identifies the most
liquid ETFs with low expenses, there is no guarantee that these ETFs will
perform well in the future.
All the securities included in our portfolio are 100% Ethically complaint.
Wahed never invests in companies that derive more than 5% of their
revenue from business activities like:
Providing non-Islamic financial services and any other related
Manufacturers/sellers of products or services not approved by the
Islamic principles (i.e. liquor, tobacco, gambling, pork, etc.)
Producers and distributors of music, radio, films and television shows
Clients should be aware that in some limited instances, the ethically
Complaint ETFs may have hidden expenses which may reduce its value
and affect the portfolio's performance.
Performance information is presented without of all management fees,
commissions and expenses unless indicated otherwise. For all periods, the
performance information includes the reinvestment of dividends and
interest unless otherwise noted.
Any comparison to traditional investment advisers is based on an
evaluation of average fees and returns. Actual results may be different for
each investor and there can be no guarantee of enhanced earnings due
to additional diversification, managed account selection or the use of
Projected or hypothetical performance is intended to show only an
expected range of possible investment outcomes based on historical
average returns and a standard deviation of each investment type
contained in the investment plan recommended by Wahed’s, but does
not take into consideration the effect of taxes, changing risk profiles or
future investment decisions. Projected and hypothetical performance
does not represent actual accounts or actual trades and may not reflect
the effect of material economic and market factors. The actual
transaction costs in Client accounts may be different.
Actual investors with Wahed’s may experience different results from any
hypothetical results shown. There is a potential for loss as well as gain that
is not reflected in the hypothetical information portrayed. The
hypothetical performance results shown do not represent the results of
actual trading using client assets but were achieved by means of the
retroactive application of a model designed with the benefit of hindsight.
Investors should carefully review the additional information presented by
Wahed as part of any hypothetical comparison.
