  • Authors: Kabir, Sarkar Humayun; Dewandaru, Ginanjar; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (2013)

  • This study attempts to investigate the issue of integration of Islamic equity markets (i) not only whether these markets are moving together or not (ii) but also whether the permanent and temporary components of these markets are moving together or not. Our evidence tends to indicate that these selected Islamic markets are bound together by one cointegrating relationship with the Euro zone Islamic equity market being the most leading one and the U.K. Islamic equity market being the follower. Beveridge-Nelson (BN) time series decomposition analysis reinforces the integration by indicating that both the permanent and transitory components of all these Islamic equity indices tend to move...

  • The growth of the financial sector of an economy such as, the stock market is usually found to be highly correlated with the growth of the real sector of an economy. In this study, we make an attempt to investigate whether there is any significant relationship between the stock prices, macroeconomic variables and foreign stock prices in an economy. Using the Malaysian quarterly data from 1991–2010 and the time series techniques such as, cointegration, long run structural modeling, vector error correction, variance decompositions, impulse response functions, and persistence profile approaches, we evidence a significant statistical relationship existing between the Malaysian stock price...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Kabir, Sarkar Humayun; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur; Bacha, Obiyathulla Ismath (2017)

  • Motivated by the recent phenomenal growth in Islamic finance and the financialization of commodities, this study makes an initial attempt to investigate the risk return profiles of optimized portfolios combining (a) Islamic equities with commodities and (b) conventional equities with commodities during the crises and noncrises periods. The findings tend to indicate that Islamic equity-commodity portfolios provide relatively higher diversification benefits than the conventional equity-commodity portfolios during the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis triggered by the financial sector compared to the 2008 global financial crisis triggered by the real housing sector. The findings further sugges...

  • Since the recent financial crises, increases in contagion and correlation between assets have reduced the possibility of minimizing risk by way of diversification. The investors are therefore, looking for alternative assets such as, commodities, Islamic portfolios, etc. However, despite the very rapid growth of Islamic finance, there has hardly been any rigorous empirical research investigating the risk-return profiles of combining commodity portfolios with Islamic equities and/or with the mainstream equities. This study is aimed at filling this gap in the finance literature ... Available in physical copy only (Call Number: t HG 4529.5 K11)

  • This paper aims at investigating the time varying relationship between Islamic equity and commodity returns in order to examine how combination of Islamic equities and commodities contribute to the benefits of portfolio investors and managers. In order to investigate this relationship, we employed multivariate GARCH method on return series of five different commodity groups (energy, precious metals, agricultural, non-ferrous metals and softs group), Dow Jones spot commodity index as a proxy of an aggregate commodity market and Dow Jones Islamic index over the period January 3, 2001 - March 28, 2013. Our findings show that correlations between commodity and Islamic stock markets’ retur...
