  • Authors: Bukhari, Naseem (2020)

  • In the last two decades, financial integration and financial liberalization has resulted into proliferation of multinational banks across the globe. This augmenting growth in multinational banking is proclaimed to enhance financial stability in host countries as they bring about competitiveness and efficiency, introduce best governance practices, superior risk management techniques, product innovation,and above all have parental support at their disposal in times of financial distress. However, at the same time these multinational banks with significant market share can destabilize host economies as they may not only intensify their domestic crises but may also become a source of tran...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H.; Salim, Kinan; Abojeib, Mhd Moutaz; Lau, Wee Yeap (2019)

  • This paper assesses Malaysia's competition landscape and its risk implications subsequent to conventional banking consolidation and Islamic banking penetration in the aftermath of the 1997/1998 Asian financial crisis. Employing a panel sample of conventional and Islamic commercial banks, it arrives at the following conclusions. First, the consolidation exercise, which has led to a significant reduction in the number of domestic commercial banks, has not stifled banking competition. Second, the paper provides empirical support for the competition-stability relationship, particularly for the conventional banking sector. Islamic banking sector risk appears to be neutral to market competi...

  • PhD


  • Authors: Abdul Razak, Ahmad Lutfi (2019)

  • In the aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis of 2008-2009 , there has been increased scrutiny in the way that credit rating agencies (CRAs) have conducted credit risk analysis. Through the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investments (PRJ), a growing number of investors and CRAs have collaborated to enhance the systematic and transparent consideration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in the assessment of corporate creditworthiness. While there exists a burgeoning literature that examines the relationship between corporate social performance (CSP) and credit risk, there are several prevailing issues. Firstly, previous studies of CSP have relied on measure...

  • Authors: Smolo, Edib (2019)

  • Although the well-functioning financial structure is, in general, a key to long-term sustainable economic growth and overall stability, the debate on the relationship between financial development and economic growth remains non-fading. The theoretical literature provides startlingly different and sometimes conflicting views on the finance growth nexus. In addition to this non-fading debate on finance - growth nexus, the degree of banking competition attracted increasing attention in recent years. Banking consolidations, merger and acquisitions, fuelled by overall banking deregulations and the lowering of economic barriers led to structural changes within the banking and financial env...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H.; Rizvi, Syed Aun Raza (2018)

  • In this study, we conduct a panel analysis of Islamic and conventional banks to ascertain whether Islamic banks are able to sustain financing supply and whether its growth is higher than conventional bank lending growth in times of stress. For concreteness, we also assess whether the sustained financing supply of Islamic banks is justified by a concomitant increase in Islamic deposit growth and is not linked to excessive risk taking. Utilizing a panel sample of 25 Islamic banks and 114 conventional banks from 10 dual-banking countries, we observe sustained financing supply by Islamic banks but significant reduction in the lending growth by conventional banks during the crisis period. ...

  • Following the U.S. Subprime Crises of 2007-08, many developed countries went into deep recession. In the literature, there are many reasons provided as probable causes of the crisis. However, it is undeniable that the flaws of the conventional financial system and home financing methods are among the important sources of the crisis. In this thesis, we argue that the damage caused by the Subprime crisis may have been avoided to a considerable extent if true profit and loss sharing (PLS) based method of financing has been applied. In that regards, we suggest an improved version of Islamic home financing called the Enhanced Musharakah Mutanaqisah (EMM).

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Asadov, Alam; Ibrahim, Mansor H. (2018)

  • This paper theoretically analyzes two alternative modes of home financing. The first mode is the conventional housing loan and the other is Enhanced Musharakah Mutanaqisah (EMM) home financing. Our results reveal the EMM based setting is superior to the conventional housing loans in at least two aspects. These are the prevention of house price inflation in all phases of economic business cycle and the smoothening of real estate cycles. This means that, under the EMM, the risk of real estate bubble formation is subdued, which should prove to be welfare improving.

  • Finance_and_inequality_in_eight_Asian_countries_mansor.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H. (2018)

  • The present paper seeks to assess the implications of increasing financial sector size on income inequality in eight Asian countries - Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and South Korea. Adopting a panel data approach, it document a non-linear relation between income inequality and financial sector size in these countries. More precisely, the increasing financial sector size is favourable to equal income distribution only up until a size threshold, beyond which further expansion of the financial sector can worsen income distribution. The analysis further highlights the income-equalizing effect of economic growth and infrastructure development and...

  • PhD


  • Authors: Seho, Mirzet (2018)

  • The issue of whether banks should diversify or focus their portfolios is theoretically and empirically open to debate. Traditional wisdom in banking argues that diversification can reduce risk and improve retums. The theory of corporate finance, however, contends that diversification increases earnings volatility, write-downs and write-offs, agency problems and inefficiency. While the former suggests that banks should be as diversified as possible, the latter recommends that banks should focus their activities. In an attempt to test these arguments, numerous empirical studies have been conducted - primarily on conventional banks in single-banking systems from developed economies and l...

  • Islamic banking has been developing and expanding all around the world for the past decades and it continues to develop at an accelerated pace in some countries in recent years. However, the development of Islamic banking is unevenly distributed across the countries. Most of the Islamic banks are located in the Middle East and North African regions. Despite of the huge Muslim populations, some countries like Indonesia and Pakistan are still having a small share of Islamic bank asset as compared to those of the MENA region. This situation raises a question of what actually contributes to the development of Islamic banking. A vast number of literatures with regards to the financial deve...
