About Us

Ethis Malaysia, which is part of Ethis Group, is a Recognized Market Operator (RMO) approved under Securities Commission Malaysia to carry out Equity Crowdfunding business activities.

Ethis Group operates investment platforms approved by regulators in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Dubai, together with a charity platform named Global Sadaqah.

Our platforms serve ordinary people, high-net-worth individuals, corporates and government entities. We are best known for our crowdfunding impact investment for Indonesian social housing development projects which has been operational since 2014.

At Ethis, we believe that Equity Crowdfunding is the future of the Islamic Capital Markets. Ethis Malaysia offers access to investment opportunities in distinctive and promising companies while also serving as a platform for entrepreneurs to showcase their company to a community of global investors.

Our Mission

To drive effective and impactful circulation of capital to the real economy

Our Vision

Uplifting humanity through financial technology 

Why Us

Accessibility

With Equity Crowdfunding you have the opportunity to participate in investments that were previously perhaps not available to normal investors.

Shariah-compliant

We adhere to the principles of Shariah-compliant finance which essentially focuses on the ethics of transparency and justice in our dealings.

Malaysia

Malaysia is the ideal base - a leading Shariah-compliant economy hub and the top Sukuk market with world-leading capital market infrastructure and regulations.

Economic Boost

By providing SMEs easier access to capital, Equity Crowdfunding stimulates the Malaysian economy by new business formation and strengthening the existing ones.

Proof of Concept

Being one of the pioneers of Shariah-compliant crowdfunding, we have substantial experience and knowledge gained through our other platforms.

Social Benefit

We aim to prioritise deals which have a social impact so that the community can enjoy the benefits of your investment.

Focus Verticals

Property

Open up investment access to property development opportunities to earn developer-like returns. Discounted purchase of income-generating assets.

Business

Potential for good returns over short redemption periods. Social impact focused and enabled.

Agriculture

Microfinance at the farm cluster level to give stable returns over time. Access to investment providing funding to larger producers for export and trading.

Waqf Assets

There are about 10,000ha of waqf in 2017 (JAWHAR) but not all productive. Looking at monetising dormant waqf assets creating a virtuos cycle of returns and impact. Cash waqf will be explored.
