Kosher business

BSheva has a very interesting article on a relatively new investment company called Hillat Shoham. This is a unique enterprise in that all investments are done according to halacha. Issues of Ribit (interest), supporting shabbat violations, and other problems are all guaranteed to be halachicly valid. Apparently, difficult questions are brought to Rav Elyashiv Shlit"a for halachic consideration.

I don't know the specifics, but I think we should bless this application of Torah to yet another area of the modern world.
