Kestrl is an app that helps Muslims to Budget, Save and Invest in line with their values. Make your financial dreams come true with Kestrl!
Finance for Muslims has been far from easy. From high fees and poor service levels, to a lack of clarity on what makes a product 'Islamic'- Trust in Islamic Finance within our communities is often low. Kestrl aims to remedy that.

Kestrl is Sharia Compliant!
Kestrl is for everyone, but we wanted to make sure we could help the extremely underserved population of British Muslims too. To this end, we need to ensure everything from our products to our business practices are in line with Islamic or 'Sharia' values. We do this by partnering with Mufti Faraz Adam of 'Amanah Advisors' as our official Sharia Advisors and issuers of our Sharia Compliance Certificate.
