Halal investing is investing in companies that are in line with Islamic principles of investing. A lot of conventional investment products aren't compliant. For example, profiting off debt is prohibited, so bonds and GICs are off the table for observant muslims. Additionally, halal investing prohibits businesses that profit off certain activities, including alcohol, tobacco, gambling, pork, and weapons, among others.
Of course! Anyone who is a suitable investor can invest in this portfolio.

We charge the same fees for our Halal portfolio as we do for our regular and socially responsible portfolios: a 0.5% management fee on your first $100,000 and 0.4% after that. However, the fees charged by the firms that manage the ETFs are modestly higher than the fees for regular ETFs - a weighted average of 0.23% to 0.47% compared with 0.1% to 0.2% for standard Wealthsimple portfolios. There’s a good reason for a higher fee: we have worked closely with Shariah scholars to thoroughly review the ETFs to screen for companies that comply with Islamic law. Wealthsimple collects a portion of that fee for managing the equity ETF.
