Cape Town
,
June
2013



June is always a special month for Oasis as it marks the
birthday

month for
the company. This year, Oasis will be celebrating its 16th birthday. The

celebration is m
ade even
sweeter when the

PlexCrown Fund Management Survey
was released
in which Oasis is ranked as the
top Offshore Collective Investment Scheme Manager. As further testimony to this outstanding
performance and management, Oasis is also the only South Afr
ican fund manager to sustain its S&P
gold star status for
its

global equity funds.


“As we celebrate our 1
6
th

birthday, we look back at
over a

decade and a

half of pioneering work. We
first opened our doors in 1997 and we’ve been providing
investors a
Shari

ah and
an
ethical
alternative”, says Adam Ebrahim, CEO
of
Oasis Group Holdings.

The earliest of the

Group’s pioneering
work

was the launch of the Oasis Crescent Equity Fund in August 1998. Not only was this Oasis’s first
retail investment fund offe
ring, but it was also the first Shari’ah compliant equity fund launched in
South Africa. The launch of the world’s first Islamic Real Estate Investment Trust and the first Islamic
income funds in both Europe and South Africa have also since followed.

,
the launch of
Oasis
Crescent Insurance Limited
continued
the Group’s

pioneering
work when it became
South Africa’s
first provider of Islamic Annuity and Endowment products.

“W
e thank the Almighty for granting us this privilege to be of service to our clients and the community
at large.
Our

ability to continue to deliver on our commitment to protect and grow the wealth of our
clients is what we are celebrating today
”,
says Adam

Ebrahim
.

He continues, “We also look forward
to the upcoming 15
th

birthday of our flagship fund, the Oasis Crescent Equity Fund. This is certainly
another celebration worthy of this same spirit of reflection and gratitude”.

There will certainly be som
e cake to celebrate
this sweet achievement.
