    iSHRAQ*Invest provides real time access to investment information through a user friendly web interface that offers 3 levels of information in a single page as well as a multi tabbing feature that makes the navigating experience through the system more effective while saving all the data coherently. Every transaction applied on the system is calculated and reflected automatically, minimizing the overall time consumed to run the portfolio calculations and enhancing the system performance.
