  • The aim of this article is to investigate the motivation of CEOs to invest in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities. To carry out this analysis, we assess a sample of US conventional and Shariah Compliant (SC) firms, from Dow Jones Indices. As SC firms undergo business and financial screening, they are expected to follow different managerial styles and capital structures as compared to conventional firms. This comparison is important in view of the growing size of the Islamic Financial Services Industry that has surpassed total asset values of USD 2.00 Trillion. Existing literature argues that, for conventional firms, CEOs spend on CSR either to promote their private benefi...

  • This thesis is structured into three essays. The first essay provides evidence on the comparative risk-return profile and investment style of SCFs and the SRFs. As the long list of literature claims the superiority of these funds during the crisis period, the validity of this claim is also examined using a larger sample and a longer analysis period. The findings of this research can be summarized as follows; first, both types of funds underperform the market suggesting there is cost attached to ethical and religious based investment but SCFs, to some extent, manage to do better than the SRFs. Second, in terms of investment style, SRFs investments are biased towards small capitalized s...

  • Authors: Selamat, Aslam; Ariff, Mohamed; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad (2015)

  • This article evaluates how tax reforms affect stock prices of local and foreign firms in Oman and Saudi Arabia. Both countries introduced corporate tax on foreign firms, exempting local firms from corporate tax, when they moved away from a pre-existing Islamic tax neutrality policy. These reforms were implemented in 2009 in Oman and in 2004 in Saudi Arabia. These tax reform events – applying to foreign firms and not applying to local firms in the same markets – offer ideal experimental situations in two economies to test the taxation theories on how stock prices must react. We find that the results support the Modigliani- Miller and Elton-Gruber tax theories in two ways. Firstly, fore...

  • A wide expansion of Islamic finance in Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian countries in the last decade has been a popular phenomenon with Sukuk issues as major Islamic financial instrument used by corporate and sovereign to raise financing and attract investors. Classical efficient market theory posits that stock market prices should fully reflect all relevant information such as government debt, as soon as they occur, without any delay, if the market is efficient. Using event study methodology, this paper attempts to investigate the wealth effects of sovereign sukuk announcements in different regions and different underlying structures by analysing the reaction of the corresponding s...

  • Authors: Mahomed, Ziyaad (2016)

  • This thesis evaluates the wealth effects of corporate Sukuk issuances, based on specific sample traits, for the three largest issuing countries: Malaysia, Indonesia and Saudi Arabia. The sample traits include underlying structure, size of issuance and tenor. Previous studies are inconclusive and relate mainly to Malaysian firms only. This could be attributed to the failure to incorporate the effects of Sukuk types, properly identified crisis period effects and market differences ...

  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Mahomed, Ziyaad; Ariff, Mohamed; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad (2017)

  • This chapter is written with a view to explain how stock prices react to the issuance of a new kind of debt instrument (the sukuk debt certificates) in two stock markets in the period 2001-15. The existing classical corporate finance theory considers share prices' response to capital issuances to be crucial to any understanding on how to maximize the firm value and thus the shareholder wealth. How this is achieved has been debated extensively and deliberated elaborately by academics over six decades. It stands to reason, though, that maximizing firm value requires effective investment decisions which in turn necessitates access to a valuable source of capital.

  • Contemporary economic thoughts equate capital, as mentioned in the above quote, to be wealth, which, as stated in the quote, is the accumulation of things of value from the continuous efforts of humans. Wealth is owned in different proportions by individuals, entities and the state. Wealth can be defined broadly as an item that has some economic substance, a value such that the wealth can be used for several intended purposes, in modern economics, for consumption as theoretically glorified by the Utility Maximization Theorem (Arrow-Debreu). As the great philosopher - economist Adam Smith said, wealth is from the efforts of humans to better the human condition, which then eventually le...

  • Authors: Muhamad Sori, Zulkarnain; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad; AlHomsi, Mahmoud (2019)

  • Documented evidence on conventional bond markets shows negative market reaction to bond credit rating downgrade and no reaction to credit rating upgrade. Despite the fact that sukuk issuances make up more than 58.8% of the value of outstanding bonds in the country and Malaysia issues at least half of the world's sukuk and is widely recognized as a leader in the sukuk space, there is no documented evidence on the stock market reaction to sukuk credit rating changes. This study analyzed the wealth effect of sukuk credit rating changes in Malaysia using 16 sukuk upgrades and 20 sukuk downgrades for the period 2000-2014. The evidence shows negative market reaction to downgrades and positi...

  • Prior research examining corporate governance issues across jurisdictional boundaries and market specificity (emerging and otherwise) have commonly adopted the functionalist approach of exploring governance implications towards specific economic phenomena covering among others, firm's performance and its reporting behaviour. These studies have utilized common research methods (often archival modeling) and theories (economic and management based) subscribing to the positivist paradigm in understanding specific research phenomena.

  • Islamic banks in Malaysia have been growing rapidly since their debut in 1983, and are now an important component in the economy and financial system, which aims to become a major international Islamic finance hub. The policies, regulations and activities proposed and implemented by the Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM, the central bank) have significantly contributed to this development. It has been further enhanced by regulation of the Securities Commission. This chapter provides an overview of the role of BNM in regulating the Islamic banking industry in Malaysia.
