Jakarta, MINA – Indonesian humanitarian agency, Dompet Dhuafa presents waqf shares as a new innovation. Waqf Dompet Dhuafa General Manager, Bobby P Manullang said the mechanism of waqf shares is that investors conduct transactions with securities companies.

Furthermore, Securities companies transfer shares to nazir accounts to be managed. But shares which can be used as endowments are Islamic stocks.

“Dompet Dhuafa will manage independently according to recommendations from securities companies if, in the future, the number of shares is growing up and needs to be managed professionally. Dompet Dhuafa will use investment management services,” Bobby said in Jakarta on Friday.

Dompet Dhuafa cooperates with Philip Sekuritas Indonesia and Panin Sekuritas as two securities that are guaranteed to be registered as members of the Syariah Online Trading System (AB SOTS). It is an online sharia stock transaction system that meets the principles of sharia in the capital market.

“In addition, waqf shares can also be an alternative choice for investors to be able to share through stock instruments,” Bobby said.

Dompet Dhuafa hopes that cooperation has a positive impact on the development of waqf in Indonesia.

Many people still consider waqf only in the form of mosques, tombs, and madrassahs, whereas now waqf can be through shares. Dompet Dhuafa along with securities companies will increasingly socialize and educate the public about the importance and benefits of waqf shares.
