In 2001, I set up 1st Ethical, the UK’s first ever fully FSA authorized financial services business. I was 26 at the time and the youngest principal of an authorized IFA firm in the UK.

1st Ethical was primarily dedicated to servicing the investment, pension and financial needs of the UK’s Muslim community by specializing in shariah-compliant finance.

In 2003 1st Ethical won UK’s fastest growing company in the Shell Livewire awards and myself and fellow Director won NW Entrepreneur of the year. Over the years, we won numerous awards and amassed scores of media coverage which you can view here

Today, 1st Ethical operates as an educational charity benefitting society through developing well rounded citizens. You can learn more about its work and projects here
