The Balanced strategy is designed to make the most of the available opportunities on Funding Souq. Our system will allocate unlimited exposure to A-rated opportunities as these are fully guaranteed through our partnership with Sharjah Media City. Given that our B-rated opportunities are not guaranteed and are riskier, our system will limit your exposure to 10% of your total portfolio for these opportunities.


The Conservative strategy is designed to minimize your risk but with that comes lower returns as well. Our system will allocate your funds to only A-rated opportunities which are fully guaranteed through our partnership with Sharjah Media City.

Auto-Investing is a feature that allows you to invest your available funds in a hassle-free manner. If enabled, our system will automatically allocate your recently deposited funds or your repayments into live opportunities on the Marketplace. There are 2 types of Auto-Investing strategies, Balanced and Conservative, and these are designed to maximize your returns on a risk-adjusted basis.

Funding Souq is open to all nationalities although there are some regulatory restrictions.

Funding Souq requires the above documents to comply with the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA). As per regulatory requirements, all regulated firms need to maintain valid ID documents and client information. This requires us to understand your identity, source of funds and previous dealings. If need may be, we might contact you for additional documents as the previous list is non-exhaustive. Funding Souq cannot withdraw money from your account and all deposits will be made by you transferring money into a segregated bank account.
