Islamic Finance Guru

Now you can get ahead on your financial journey

We are working with StepLadder to launch our own money Circle, exclusive to the IFG community.

By using StepLadder you will be able to build financial discipline and raise money towards halal investing or buying your first house.

How it works

StepLadder works in the same way that a Committee would, except everything is done online via our secure platform.

1

Join a Circle and commit to putting aside a set amount each month with other members of your Circle

2


You'll be matched with a group of people. Everyone contributes the same amount each month

3


Along the way, you'll get access to free support from the StepLadder team

4

Each month, one person in the Circle is randomly allocated the total

5


This repeats every month until everyone has received their money

What StepLadder Members say

Leslie

StepLadder was surely one of the best decisions I made...

I've always struggled putting specific amounts into savings - or yet still, I've saved and then taken money right back out - like a revolving cycle. StepLadder allowed me to specifically control my savings and I don't think I would have had the same discipline over the 12 month period (if doing it alone).

Excellent service!

This is my first time using stepladder and what can I say, it is super easy to use, great customer service and it does what it says on the tin. I joined the £10,000 circle and it's a great way of obtaining money for a house deposit quicker than saving up.

NM, StepLadder member

StepLadder is a great way of putting money away...

And great for sticking to a plan. I also love the virtual talks they do via their instagram page and newsletter.

A reliable organisation, compassionate and caring

Where do I start? Honestly, StepLadder, I am writing this review with strong emotions. I was scared to start with in joining StepLadder. Then decided to join with 25 pounds a month and l took 2 Circles. I got paid when I don't even remember that am saving somewhere.

I'm very happy with the service

I've been with StepLadder for over 4 months now and I've been able to put some money aside  and getting into the habit of saving.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if somebody drops out or stops paying in?

It’s StepLadder’s problem, not yours.
We have financial measures in place that makes sure the Circle continues to run seamlessly for everyone else and you will not be affected by someone else dropping out.

How do you select who is drawn?

One Member of each Circle is selected at random (by a random allocation algorithm) to be awarded the Draw Total. You'll get a call from one of the StepLadder team to let you know and the money will be sent to your account.
