  • Competition_diversification_and_performance_in_dual_banking_a_panel_VAR_analysis_Mansor.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Sahul Hamid, Fazelina; Ibrahim, Mansor H. (2021)

  • This article investigates the dynamic relationship among competition, diversification and bank performance using data for 18 countries with a dual banking system over the period 2000 to 2016. Analyses using panel vector autoregression (P.V.A.R.) model, impulse response function (I.R.F.) and variance decomposition (V.D.C.) methods confirm that market power increases the profitability and the stability of banks the dual banking system while revenue diversification reduces them. Market power increases revenue diversification of banks. Segregating the sample of banks into emerging and developing countries, we find that positive impact of market power on profitability is stronger for emerg...

  • Islamic_banks_history,_stability_lessons_from_cooperative_banking_Mansor.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Gulzar, Rosana; Ibrahim, Mansor H.; Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff (2021)

  • Islamic banking's profit-maximising fervour, building upon the use of interest-resembling products, has raised concerns about its Shariah authenticity and financial stability. While early Islamic economists envisioned an industry built on values of mutuality and participation, architects of Islamic banking have chosen to replicate interest-based conventional banking for the purpose of fast growth. This study has two objectives. First, to narrate the history of Islamic banking, from the theories postulated to the beginnings of the industry. This builds an understanding of why 'Islamic' banking operates as it does currently, which has implications for Shariah compliance and financial st...

  • Are_Islamic_banks_suffering_from_a_model_misfit_comparison_with_cooperative_banks_Mansor.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Gulzar, Rosana; Ibrahim, Mansor H.; Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff (2020)

  • For the first time, this study investigates whether, in mimicking conventional banks, Islamic banks have become less stable than their theoretical equivalent: cooperative banks in Europe. Theoretically, the prohibition of interest should have pushed Islamic banks towards mutuality and profit-sharing, which have been argued as stabilising. In practice, however, banks are pushed for growth under a debt-driven commercial banking model, which is not only antithetical to the Shariah but is also destabilising. This may explain why empirical findings are still divergent in Islamic banking stability studies. Our study employs the generalised method of moments (GMM) system to compare the stabi...

  • Islamic_banking_and_bank_performance_in_Malaysia_an_empirical_analysis_Mansor.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H. (2020)

  • This paper examines the performance of Malaysia's banking sector and its relationship to the presence of Islamic banking in the country. More specifically, by controlling for the theoretically relevant determinants of bank performance we compare the efficiency, profitability and risk of Islamic banks to conventional banks and examine the spillover effects of Islamic banking penetration on bank performance. To these ends, we adopt a panel modelling approach. Taking note that our focal variables comprise the timeinvariant Islamic banking dummy and potentially endogenous Islamic banking share, we apply the Hausman-Taylor (HT) instrumental-variable estimator in the analysis. Our results i...

  • Phd_Role_multinational_banks_international_transmission_financial_shocks_dual_banking_system_Naseem.pdf.jpg
  • PhD


  • 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...

  • PhD_The_effect_bank_concentration_financial_development_on_economic_growth_income_volatility_Edib_Smolo.pdf.jpg
  • PhD


  • 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...

  • Financial_intermediation_costs_in_a_dual_banking_system_the_role_of_Islamic_banking_Mansor.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H.; Siong, Hook Law (2019)

  • This paper empirically analyses the role of Islamic banking in financial intermediation costs as measured by net interest margins for a leading dual banking country, Malaysia. Controlling for theoretically motivated determinants of the margins, the paper compares the interest/financing margins of conventional and Islamic banks and examines the impacts of Islamic banking presence on bank margins. The analysis provides evidence of the higher margins of Islamic banks compared to those of conventional banks. Further, the difference in bank margins between the two types of banks can be attributed to differences in market power, operating costs, and diversification. Finally, Islamic banking...

  • The_impact_of_charter_values_on_bank_capital_in_Asia_Mansor.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Daher, Hassan; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur; Ibrahim, Mansor H. (2019)

  • Recent theories suggest the relation between banks' charter values and capital buffers is nonlinear and a function of the value of the charter. Using novel threshold estimation techniques, we investigate this for a cross section of 239 commercial banks in 24 Asian economies during the 2008 crisis and post crisis periods. For the latter period, a negative relation seems to dominate for high charter value banks in Asia (excluding Middle East region). During crises, our results for advanced Asian economies are consistent with capital buffer theory. Our findings raise distinct policy implications for the regulation and supervision of Asian banks.

  • Capital_regulation_and_Islamic_banking_performance_Mansor.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H. (2019)

  • This paper empirically assesses the relation between bank performance and capital regulation for Islamic banks from 13 countries and evaluates whether the relation varies with bank size, capital, and liquidity. We find small Islamic banks to be less stable and less profitable; they also cut lending growth as capital regulation becomes more stringent. The stability and lending growth of big Islamic banks are, however, directly related to capital regulation. Further, capital regulation adversely affects the profitability of Islamic banks with low liquidity and high capital holdings. While capital regulation is needed, it should not be adopted in a blanket manner for all Islamic banks.

  • Rethinking_Islamic_economics_Mansor.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H. (2019)

  • The emergence of Islamic viewpoints on economic issues under the umbrella of Islamic economics has captivated much interest especially in its practical manifestation in Islamic banking and finance. In light of the failure of mainstream economics to address many pressing issues, and hence the need for alternative views, this paper offers assessments of Islamic economics whether (i) it is relevant to this need, (ii) it has progressed to the extent that it has been made to become relevant, and (iii) it is also in need of reform. While I argue that Islamic economics is relevant, it falls short of expectations on the second issue. The major reasons being: (a) the lack of progress in Islami...
