Investing in India

Investing in India

"India offers high prospects for growth and earning potential across a multitude of sectors."

India is the fifth largest economy in the world and has the third largest GDP in the entire continent of Asia. The far reaching and sweeping economic reform policies embarked on since 1991 have unleashed India's enormous potential for growth. These new "Open Door Policies" effectively liberalized, deregulated and integrated the Indian economy with the global economy, resulting in India becoming a key destination for foreign investment. As such, in 2004, the Indian economy registered a 8.5% growth with a 6.9% growth projected for 2005.

TAIB India Profit-Sharing Fund

The TAIB Everest Fund is an openended mutual fund targeted for retail overseas investors and NRIs. The Fund accesses India through several different and highly successful external "Best-In-Class" investment managers that have an on-the-ground presence in India. The Fund delivered returns of 35.3% in 2004 and has marked a 180% return since its inception in 1995. As the Fund operates through a subsidiary in Mauritius, investors pay only a nominal tax on income, thereby, legally bypassing the Indian capital gains tax.

TSML is a broad-based fund in Mauritius that focuses on investment in the Indian equity market. Through this vehicle, investors will have access to the local capital markets and be able to leverage the wealth management and brokerage services offered by TAIB. It has the advantage of the Double Taxation Avoidance Treaty that is held between Mauritius and India.

The India Profit-Sharing Fund is a Shariah-compliant open-ended fund with a focus on India. It provides medium to long-term capital growth to investors through investments in select Shariah-compliant stocks.
