  • capital_adequacy_lending_deposit_behaviours_conventional_islamic_banks_shamser.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Abdul Karim, Mastura; Hassan, M. Kabir; Hassan, Taufiq; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad (2014)

  • Capital adequacy plays an important role in determining banking activities. A bank must hold a minimum level of capital to ensure sufficient funds to buffer against unexpected losses or adverse shocks. This study analyzes and compares Islamic and conventional banks in 14 Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) countries from 1999 to 2009. The empirical evidence suggests that capital requirements have a significant impact on the deposit and lending behaviors of the 52 Islamic banks (IBs) and 186 conventional banks (CBs) in the sample. There is a strong positive relationship between capital requirements and deposit and loan growth for both IBs and CBs

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Nai, Chiek Aik; Hassan, M. Kabir; Hassan, Taufiq; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad (2015)

  • This article examines the value-added phenomenon of Malaysian horizontal merger and acquisition activities (M&A) in the long run for the period 1994–2010. In this regard, this article used economic value-added (EVA) approach and cost-efficiency approach (stochastic frontier analysis (SFA)) to investigate synergistic benefits. The findings suggest that bidder firms experience no significant improvement in operating and financial efficiencies in the long run. Specifically, the operating performance of bidder firms deteriorated after the merger exercise, whereas the target firms had no significant improvement in operating performance over the same period. In summary, the findings suggest...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Adejoke, Adesina-Uthman Ganiyat; Hassan, Taufiq; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad; Hassan, M. Kabir (2013)

  • Decomposition of yield curves is important for pricing of fixed income instruments, inflation management, and modeling term structure of interest rates. Therefore, this study investigates whether the long term profit rate of different classes of Sukuk (Islamic bond) is a viable predictor of future spot profit rates. Data on Malaysian Sukuk from 2001-2010 was used to estimate yield curves and forward rates. Regression findings suggest that the forward rate is a weak predictor of future spot profit rate, implying long term profit rates are not average of future spot rate s on long term Sukuk. The findings do not support the expectation hypothesis. However, comparison with securities of ...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Hassan, Taufiq; Hassan, M. Kabir; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad; Chen, Chaw Min (2012)

  • This paper investigates the characteristics, performance, and share price reaction of politically connected firms versus a control sample of independent firms in Malaysia. Politically connected firms had higher level of leverage, lower profitability, and lower sales to profitability, and paid lower taxes and lower dividends compared to independent firms. Their share prices increase with the announcement of favorable political events. In terms of performance, the active rent-seeking activities in return for preferential treatment produce comparable performance to independent firms during an economic upturn. However, their performance deteriorates more than independent firms during an e...

  • productivity and spillover effect_shamsher.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Nai, Chiek Aik; Hassan, M. Kabir; Hassan, Taufiq; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad (2015)

  • This paper aims to examine the productivity and spillover effect of Malaysian horizontal merger and acquisition (M&A) activities in the long run. In terms of analytical tools, economic value added (EVA) and data envelopment analysis (DEA) are used. The results of this study reveal that M&As in the absence of antitrust laws could be driven by managerial self-interest to create market power instead of realizing synergistic gains. Also, in Malaysia, the non-merging rival firms have significantly higher productivity improvement than the control bidder firms, and therefore, this study has identified the spillover effect as a behavior of M&A reaction. This paper differs from previous studie...

  • assets_liabilities_ gap_management_conventional_islamic_banks_organization_islamic_cooperation_(oic)_countries_shamser.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Poi, Hun Sun; Hassan, M. Kabir; Hassan, Taufiq; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad (2014)

  • This article focuses on the short- and long-term assets and liabilities gap and the determinants of net interest/profit margins of both conventional banks and Islamic banks in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation countries over the period from 1997 to 2010. The results show that both conventional and Islamic banks have negative short-term gaps and positive long-term gaps. These indicate that banks use short-term deposits and funding to finance long-term loans, advances and investments, taking into consideration refinancing and reinvestment risks. The findings also show that operating cost is a significant determinant of bank margins and important factor to improve quality of manage...

  • Authors: Lahsasna, Ahcene; Hassan, M. Kabir (2011)

  • Product innovation and enhancement in business and finance is an important aspect for the development and growth of the Islamic finance industry. However the flexibility provided by Shariah in product development should be understood within the norms of Shariah rules, principles and framework. The following discussion will encompass two major dimensions, namely product development and product approval in Islamic capital market.
