About the Fund


Capital preservation and income. Our proprietary investment process embraces our ethical investing philosophy. The Fund does not engage in charging or paying of interest from lending, trading debt, money market instruments, future contracts and currency.

The Fund’s goal is to produce a return that is comparable to the return on bank accounts, certificates of deposits, and other such financial instruments (in which the Fund cannot invest) pursuant to the Fund’s ethical investment restrictions.


Azzad Wise Capital Fund invests primarily in notes and certificates issued for payment by international financial institutions, foreign governments, and agencies of foreign governments in transactions structured to be compliant with the Fund’s ethical investment guidelines. Examples of these notes and certificates include sukuk, which link the returns and cash flows of financing to the assets purchased, or the returns generated from an asset purchased, and wakala, in which accounts are operated under the Islamic finance principle of wakala (an agency agreement).

The Fund is non-diversified with a high concentration of securities in the financial sector which can expose the Fund to more volatility and/or market risk than diversified funds. The Fund may not achieve its objective and/or could lose money on your investment in the Fund. The Fund mainly invests in securities issued by foreign entities which expose the Fund to country specific risks such as market, economic, political, regulatory, geographical, and other risks. The Fund intends to invest in certain instruments that may be illiquid. As a result, if the Fund receives large amount of redemptions, the Fund may be forced to sell such illiquid investments at a significant loss to be able to meet such redemption requests. See the prospectus for more details about risks.

2014 Distributions

As a shareholder, you are entitled to your share of a Fund’s net income and capital gains on its investments. A Fund is required to pass through substantially all of its earnings along to its investors as distributions. When a Fund earns dividends from stocks and distributes these earnings to shareholders, it is called a dividend distribution. A Fund realizes capital gains when it sells securities for a higher price than it paid. When net long-term capital gains are distributed to shareholders, it is called a capital gain distribution. Net short-term capital gains are considered ordinary income and are included in dividend distributions.

The Funds distribute capital gains, if any, annually. The Azzad Wise Capital Fund (WISEX) distributes dividends, if any, monthly, and the Azzad Ethical Fund (ADJEX) distributes dividends, if any, annually.

The Azzad Wise Capital Fund (WISEX) made its distributions on Monday, December 29, 2014. Distributions (dividends, short-term capital gains, long-term capital gains) are listed below:

PLEASE NOTE: On the day the distribution is declared, the amount of the distribution is deducted from fund assets and calculated as a per share amount to be passed through to shareholders. On this day, the fund's share price will decline by the amount of the distribution (plus or minus any share price change related to market activity).
