Interpreting Middle East Economic News and Analyzing Market Trends


Established in Chicago in 1996 by Tariq Alrifai, Failaka Advisors was the first research and advisory firm to monitor advances in the field of Islamic investment funds. Believing that investors needed increased disclosure and better reporting on this fast-growing sector, Failaka began maintaining a comprehensive record of equity and balanced funds, and presently keeps up-to-date, objective, and reliable data on the sector.  The company was also the first to give recognition best performing funds, fund family, and managers in this industry by hosting the annual Failaka Islamic Fund Awards.
