Wahed Inc, a world-leading FinTech for ethical & halal investing, today announced the signing of legendary MMA champion Khabib Nurmagomedov as brand ambassador to promote financial inclusion around the world.

Since retiring after an impressive MMA career inside the ring, Khabib has been spending his time supporting charitable causes and social impact businesses such as Wahed which align with his own values and beliefs.

“Khabib is the ultimate icon when you combine morals and financial success,” says Group CEO Junaid Wahedna.

“His story and achievements are an inspiration to hundreds of millions of people globally. His integrity, work ethic and commitment to building a more equitable society mirror how we are working to make fintech accessible to people around the world. He is the perfect ambassador for us,” he said.

Khabib said, “I love Wahed because it’s halal, simple, and I believe we should all manage our money responsibly. I am fortunate to have millions of fans and am proud to have represented them all around the world. They have given me amazing energy when I’ve stepped into the cage, and outside the cage, I look forward to working more with various communities around the world.”

In the same way Khabib transcended his sport through his values, Wahed hopes to do the same and appeal to anyone who believes values and finance should go hand in hand. As an ambassador for Wahed, Khabib will use his platform, alongside Team Khabib, to help bridge the investment gap.

“We are excited about the partnership with Khabib who is the most dominant champion in the history of UFC with an undefeated record in MMA. The values he carries with him jive with that of Wahed’s and we look forward to working with him in Malaysia working with communities to increase financial literacy,” said Syakir Hashim, CEO and Country Head of Wahed Malaysia.
