Al Baraka Bank, registered in South Africa since 1989, pioneered Islamic banking in this country in response to an identified need for a system of banking which adhered to Islamic economic principles. The bank, with its Head Office in Durban and a strategically located national branch network, is South Africa’s only fully-fledged Islamic bank and is a subsidiary of the international Al Baraka Banking Group B.S.C., which has established one of the largest international Islamic banking groups in the world.


ROSHMED HOSPITAL INVESTMENT LTD’s (“ROSHMED’s”) inception in 1991 began with ROSHGOLD’S vision of their social commitment to ease the burden of high medical costs for individuals.
ROSHMED is a hospital investment savings plan designed for your family’s well being. It is not a medical aid fund but a collective investment fund based on Islamic values. Whilst private healthcare is becoming unaffordable and state healthcare is rapidly deteriorating in infrastructure and poor quality service, ROSHMED takes care of members by allowing a withdrawal of a member’s investment in order to cover prescribed hospitalisation costs.

Roshsuns objective is to grow its property investment portfolio by deploying cash reserves into quality income producing commercial properties.

At present property accounts for around 45% of the portfolio. The balance is in cash and near cash reserves.

Roshsun pays returns twice annually  i.e. around April and December. Investors have the option of re-investing their returns and the fund allows for lump sum or regular monthly investment
