Ficus investment Approach

Environment, Social & Governance & Islamic Investment

ESG 1.png

Ficus proudly identifies itself as the pioneer in the realm of ESG-i (Environmental, Social, and Governance with an Islamic perspective) Driven Venture Capital Management. Our distinctive approach stems from the belief that the principles of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) are not only integral to contemporary investment practices but are also firmly entwined with the core tenets of Islamic economics and ethical investment.


At Ficus, we place paramount importance on the convergence of ESG and Islamic values.

As pioneers in ESG-i venture capital, Ficus developed this unique ESG-i assessment framework in-house and has been using it for several years. Recognising an industry need for this tool, Ficus ventured into a partnership with INCEIF University, a world-leading Islamic finance university with vast industry expertise, to develop this robust and practicable framework for MSMEs.
