shariah offering.

We have been offering Shariah investment solutions in line with the principles of Islamic finance since 2012. Our Shariah compliant discretionary mandate falls within our long tradition of social responsibility and the resulting ability to develop sustainable and responsible investment solutions.

At Lombard Odier, we seek to be the private bankers of reference for our clients and their families – not just today, but over the long term, generation after generation. Lombard Odier has been active in private banking in the Middle East for half a century, with offices today in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Our Shariah compliant finance and investment expertise are well recognised. We won “Best Shariah Compliant Wealth Management Offering” at the MENA WealthBriefing Awards 2020, and our first Islamic finance award in 2019.

Lombard Odier Assayil

Lombard Odier Assayil

Today, we offer Islamic investment solutions, including our Shariah discretionary mandate, under the umbrella brand “Lombard Odier Assayil.”

The term ‘Assayil’ implies many things in Arabic, including purity, authenticity and solid fundamentals, and the bloodline of a thoroughbred horse. We have chosen it to describe our unique and fast-growing Islamic investment franchise.

We are seeing an acceleration in demand for Shariah-compliant strategies, and are therefore expanding and developing our universe of Islamic investment solutions

We are seeing an acceleration in demand for Shariah-compliant investment strategies, and are therefore expanding and developing our universe of Islamic investment solutions. We are doing this together with other “rethinkers” in the Middle East, via our first collaborations in the region.

Lombard Odier Shariah-compliant investing1

In 2018, our Shariah mandate was officially certified as Shariah compliant by the Shariah Supervisory Board of Amanie Advisors, an eminent Shariah Advisory Firm.

Our aim in developing this mandate was not to offer a single, Shariah compliant product, but a fully customisable investment portfolio that gives clients seeking Islamic investement solutions access to the full capabilities of a global wealth manager.

The mandate is available in conservative, balanced and growth profiles, or entirely bespoke solutions. Depending on the individual client’s suitability, risk profile and investment preferences, it can be built using any mixture of sukuks, equities and short-term instruments, Shariah compliant funds and exchange-traded products, and investments in areas such as real estate, gold and structured products.

Our Shariah mandate has won numerous industry awards. These include: Highly Commended for 'Best Private Bank Islamic Services' at the PWM/The Banker Awards 2020 (Financial Times publications), Winner of 'Best Islamic Wealth Management Proposition’ at the Islamic Business & Finance Awards 2019, 'Best Overall International Private Bank' and for the fourth year in a row 'Best Shariah-Compliant Wealth Management Offering' at the WealthBriefing MENA Awards for Excellence 2022.


Innovative collaboration with SEDCO Capital in sustainability

In order to expand our Shariah investment offering, in 2021 we collaborated with SEDCO Capital, a renowned asset manager in the Middle East. The investment solutions expertise of our two companies is aligned with both the principles of Islamic finance and sustainability. This has notably led to the first-of its-kind sustainable equity investment strategy – one which is Shariah compliant and adapted to European UCITS3 standards.

Lombard Odier & Islamic finance – why and how

Innovative collaboration with SEDCO Capital

We believe Islamic finance to be an important conduit for promoting socially responsible investments, which are an integral part of our DNA.
