Fund Description

The Amana Mutual Funds Trust Income Fund Investor (AMANX) is a low-cost, actively managed fund that seeks to provide a high income within its investment framework. The fund invests in foreign and domestic large-cap, dividend-paying stocks in adherence to Islamic principles. The fund thus excludes alcohol stocks, gambling stocks, pork processing companies and firms that charge interest (banks). The fund will not hold bonds and can move down the market-cap ladder if opportunities arise.

With its focus on equity income, AMANX makes for an interesting subcore position in a broader equity portfolio. The fund is managed by Saturna Capital Corporation.
