An Islamic crowdfunding platform has launched in the UK, providing Shariah-compliant finance to small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
Salaam Gateway reported that Qardus, which is an appointed representative of Financial Conduct Authority-regulated ShareIn, provides unsecured loans of up to £100,000 in the form of a commodity murabahah, an Islamic financing structure in which the seller and buyer agree to the cost and mark-up of an asset.
The platform, which is open to both Muslim and non-Muslim investors in the UK and Europe, has a minimum investment of £100 and offers target returns of 10 per cent per annum.
