  • The primary goal of this paper is to explore the viability of initiating Islamic finance (IF) in an unchartered economy. Canada is taken as a case study for this paper. To achieve our objective, we proceed in two stages. The first stage involves the analysis of market opportunities for IF. More precisely, the first stage involves the cost/benefit analysis which would enable the IF industry to see whether it is feasible for them to initiate. Second, the more challenging stage involves the analysis with regard to the barriers in offering IF products. Available in e-book only (Call Number: HG 3368 A6 D489 2017 ebk)

  • Benchmarks serve multiple purposes in financial markets and hence play a critical role. They serve as a reference point for pricing instruments, reflect the opportunity cost and also serve as a reference rate for the relative performance of a portfolio. Hence, a benchmark that is transparent, liquid, easy to calculate and non-manipulative is considered critical for the efficiency of financial markets. In this paper, we suggest a model proposed, by Mirakhor (1996) which can well serve the purpose of a potential benchmark for pricing. We also show the feasibility of the model in contemporary financial system. The main motivations behind the paper are, a) to move away from any fixed rate...

  • Islamic finance refers to a financial system that operates in accordance with Islamic laws (Shari'ah).

It has grown multifold, fostering trade and business activities as well as promoting development of credit. This introductory chapter serves as a preliminary backdrop on the general overview of Islamic finance and its progressive development; a lead up to the chapters that follow. The historical context of Islamic finance is first presented and followed by the principles of Islamic finance, a synopsis of issues and challenges faced by the industry... Av...

  • The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), in their Recommendation on Principles and Good Practices for Financial Education, argues that, in the contemporary world, financial literacy is related with standard of living and that, in the deficiency of financial knowledge, individuals and households are more exposed to indebtedness and bankruptcy (OECD, 2005). The World Savings Bank Institute (WSBI) in support for children's financial education stated that, "not only to support their habit building, but also because children are key actors of change for their families" (2009). Despite of its importance, financial literacy still remains poorly explained and imperfe...

  • In the wake of increasing competition and financial deregulation, the traditional intermediation activities have been declining as proportion of total banking activities. Banks are left with no choice but to be more creative to survive in the market place. Therefore, banks have been attempting to offset this decline in profits with income generated from non-traditional / non-intermediation activities. After the recent global crisis, both Islamic and conventional banks in OIC countries have also shifted their business focus. This invites a thorough investigation into the impact of non-intermediation activities on bank performance as well as on the economic growth and volatility. In the...
