Islamic Investing in Turbulent Times

This short paper, courtesy of MSCI Barra, analyzes the performance and characteristics of the MSCI Global Islamic Indices during the market turmoil that has unfolded in the last 12 months. It focuses on the performance differentials between Islamic and conventional indices - examining sector allocations, valuations, exposures among other things. It goes further in quantifying the correlation/impact on an Islamic index of avoiding financials and maintaining low financial leverage (as compared to the conventional index).
