Wakala Treasury Deposit
Al Rayan Bank acts as your agent to generate profit.
The Business Wakala Treasury Deposit Account is operated under the Islamic Finance principle of Wakala which is an “agency agreement” where we act as the agent to achieve an agreed expected rate of profit for an agreed number of days. As an agent we monitor the investment on a daily basis to make sure that we achieve the expected profit rate agreed.
If at any point we are not able to achieve the expected profit rate, we will terminate the agreement and return the initial deposit, plus the profit accrued up until the date of termination. This process minimises the risk to your investment.
To open a Business Wakala Treasury Deposit account you will need to have opened a business current or savings account with us.
