Your investment compass.

MaQasid is the first full-fledged inde­pen­dent port­fo­lio man­age­ment com­pa­ny in Turkey that is aligned with eth­i­cal and inter­est-free finan­cial prin­ci­ples. MaQasid gains strength from the know-how of founders who come from diverse busi­ness and invest­ment back­grounds, and share the same vision to build a glob­al invest­ment plat­form that will con­tribute to shap­ing the bright future we want to see in our world.

The sto­ry of MaQasid goes back to 2015 when the co-founders real­ized the mar­ket gap, mod­elled the inno­v­a­tive solu­tions to address it, and suc­ceed­ed to have pos­i­tive test results of the devel­oped solu­tions. MaQasid in its new shape as a licensed port­fo­lio man­age­ment firm, reg­u­lat­ed by the Turk­ish Capi­tal Market Board (CMB) rules and reg­u­la­tions, is man­ag­ing to scale its oper­a­tions and expand local­ly and inter­na­tion­al­ly.

MaQasid’s mis­sion is to pro­vide its stake­hold­ers with reli­able rather than lucra­tive invest­ment alter­na­tives, help­ing them out to meet their busi­ness and finan­cial objec­tives.

The mod­el of MaQasid that blends tech­nol­o­gy, exper­tise and inter­est-free finance has put it in a unique posi­tion, where it adds an extra lay­er of respon­si­bil­i­ty to be a role mod­el with­in its scope of ser­vice.

MaQasid man­ages port­fo­lios of invest­ments for indi­vid­u­als through the Discretionary Portfolio Management frame­work, as well as cater­ing invest­ment groups and insti­tu­tions through invest­ment funds frame­work; which are meant to cre­ate high-yield using asset-backed inter­est-free invest­ment alter­na­tives.

Integral to Turkey’s plan to make its econ­o­my one of the world’s 10 largest by 2023, the goal for the Istan­bul Inter­na­tion­al Finan­cial Center project (IIFC) is to estab­lish Istanbul as a glob­al cen­ter for finance. The IIFC will house the head offices of Turkey’s finan­cial and cap­i­tal mar­kets gov­ern­ing bod­ies, state-owned and pri­vate banks, and relat­ed busi­ness­es, build­ing the eco-sys­tem for a glob­al finan­cial cen­ter that is aimed to play a key role in the world econ­o­my for the next 10 years.

Putting these facts togeth­er, MaQasid is seek­ing to be an effec­tive ele­ment of this eco-sys­tem and decid­ed to locate its head­quar­ters in Ataşehir, the area where the new IIFC is being devel­oped.

Our Philosophy

Handling it

We go on even dur­ing hard times; eco­nom­ic crises are inevitable and recur­rent. When they hap­pen we just han­dle it and pro­ceed, we do not stop work­ing on the project(s).

Growing it up

When we earn prof­it, we con­sume lit­tle and invest the rest to grow it up.

Never underestimating a profit

When the mar­ket is stag­nant, and demand is weak, we are keen to cir­cu­late assets even with a minor prof­it because goods’ flow­ing is more ben­e­fi­cial to the econ­o­my than their accu­mu­la­tion await­ing high­er prof­it.

Not buying an old hat

We don’t invest in any out­dat­ed or old-fash­ioned goods/assets. We don’t invest in some­thing old and worn out because it has no future, but we focus on prod­ucts and assets that have long-term prospects and high growth poten­tial.

Two heads are better than one

When we invest in goods/assets, instead of buy­ing one item at a great price, we buy two prod­ucts at a low­er price to diver­si­fy risk so that if one part of the busi­ness is hit, the oth­er part pays off. We don’t place all our eggs in one bas­ket.
