- The bank calculates the profit of the deposit pool every


- Gross Income (Return) of the pool will be calculated by

taking all the assets booked upto the beginning of the
month as well as assets booked/investments made during
the month by utilizing the funds from the Investment

-The Gross Income of the pool will be announced on a

month for the previous month.

Mudarib) and Depositors (Rabul Mal) in a predetermined
ratio (%) of the actual profit earned.

depositors) is announced

‡ at the beginning of the month and

‡ is available at the website of the bank or
‡ can be obtained from the bank upon request.

Bank¶s share = Gross Income x (X%)

Investment Pool¶s share = Gross Income x (1-X)%

`t the time of profit sharing, bank (as Mudarib) on its

sole discretion can reduce its share of Income in order to
pass benefit to the Investment Pool (depositors).

The profit is distributed among the customers/account

holders on the basis of predetermined weightages,
announced at the beginning of the month, based on
their respective category/tiers.

In case of any loss, it will be shared by the members of

Investment Pool in ratio of their investment.

Premium Payment

Premiums are offered to stimulate higher deposit

mobilization from high net-worth clients in addition to
the normal share of profit.

   # ° 

The administrative and operating costs associated with

high value investments are lower; therefore bank
passes on the advantage of these lower costs to high
net worth investors to induce them to bank with MBL.
"#"  ¢ 

-Premiums are declared by the bank from its share of

income as a Mudarib voluntarily and will be paid only if
overall pool has earned profit.

-Total premium paid cannot be more than 50% of the

bank¶s share of profit as a Mudarib

-MBL has unilateral right to reduce/withdraw premium


-Premium may be calculated as a percentage of

Working for Weightages

Following factors complicate the profit sharing

mechanism of Musharakah Pool:

-Large number of partners (`ccount holders)

-`ccount holders continually join and leave the
Musharakah pool
-Investment of `ccount holders also fluctuates

Simple profit sharing mechanism with this continual

fluctuation of investment and profit ratios is impractical
