  • Credit_expansion_and_financial_stability_in_Malaysia_Mansor.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Seow Shin Koong; Siong Hook Law; Mansor H. Ibrahim (2017)

  • This study investigated the degree of synchronization between credit expansion and financial stability in Malaysia at aggregated and disaggregated levels. The dynamic factor model and a broad range of macrofinancial variables are adopted to construct a financial stability index to measure the stability of the Malaysian financial system. The non-parametric method is subsequently employed to gauge the degree of synchronization between credit and financial stability. The empirical findings indicated a negative synchronization between business credit and financial stability in Malaysia, suggesting that an expansion in business credit would lead to financial instability. The results implie...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mirzet Seho; Mansor H. Ibrahim; Abbas Mirakhor (2021)

  • This paper investigates the effects of sectoral diversification of loans and financing on the risk and the returns of banks in dual-banking systems. We employ the system GMM estimator on a unique panel data of 46 Islamic and 60 conventional banks from six countries over the period 2000-2015. Our findings reveal that sectoral diversification of loans and financing reduces the returns and increases the risk of both Islamic and conventional banks; the impact of sectoral diversification on returns varies across risk levels, with negative effects at low- and no effect at moderate- and high-risk levels; the difference between the impacts on Islamic and conventional banks across risk levels ...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Paresh Kumar Narayan; Dinh Hoang Bach Phan; Guangqiang Liu; Mansor H. Ibrahim (2021)

  • We test the relevance of the trade-off, pecking order, and market timing theories of capital structure from the point of view of a stock's religious orientation. Using a unique sample of Islamic stocks, we discover the leverage speed of adjustment (SOA) to be faster compared to that in the literature on conventional stocks, consistent with trade-off theory. We hypothesize that this result is due to the risk-sharing principal of Islamic investments that substantially reduces market imperfections. The inclusion of variables belonging to other theories of capital structure does not change the SOA, implying the importance of the trade-off theory.

  • Impact_of_bank_concentration_and_financial_development_on_growth_volatility_Mansor et al.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Edib Smolo; Mansor H. Ibrahim; Ginanjar Dewandaru (2021)

  • This study investigates the impact of bank concentration and financial development on economic volatility for the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member countries. Employing dynamic panel models, we find no evidence that bank concentration is significantly related to economic volatility when it is entered independently in the models. Meanwhile, financial development lowers economic volatility. Extending the models to include market structure - financial development interaction, we note that the impact of bank concentration on volatility depends on the level of financial development within OIC countries. More specifically, the volatility-increasing effect of bank concentratio...

  • Authors: Kinan Salim,; Mansor H. Ibrahim; Abdul Hamid, Baharom (2017)

  • Islamic banking industry has unprecedentedly witnessed a rapid growth since its inception four decades back in the late 1970s. However, the prospect of this flourishing industry is fast becoming gloomy in recent years. The growth of Islamic banking almost matches the conventional banking, and their products are hardly distinguishable. Although the market growth slows down in the aftermath of the global financial crises in 2008, the Islamic banking market has witnessed increasing competition. Islamic banks become more competitive and they managed to increase their market share meanwhile, conventional banks have successfully responded to the challenge by launching Islamic windows and su...

  • PhD


  • Authors: Kinan Salim (2017)

  • Islamic banks have proliferated and emerged as important players in the global banking industry especially in the Muslim-majority countries. The recent increase in the number and market share of Islamic banks has intensified the competition in this new industry. Despite its importance, the increasing competition in Islamic banking market not only from its own Islamic peers, but also from commercial banks has not been adequately addressed nor its consequences have been investigated. This thesis aims to shed the light on this important issue by investigating the effect of competition on the efficiency of both Islamic and conventional banks ...

  • International_financial_integration_through_depositary_receipts_Obiyathullah et al.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Obiyathulla Ismath Bacha; Norhazlina Ibrahim; Mansor H. Ibrahim (2020)

  • The issue of liquidity and underdevelopment of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) stock markets has caused problems to companies in those countries that seek higher equity capital. One way out of this problem is to employ international markets more intensively by seeking cheaper cost of capital through Depositary Receipts (DRs). Many studies on DRs focused on emerging and developed countries, leaving many OIC countries behind. Thus, this study investigates the financial implication by examining the integration of returns of local and foreign stock markets via American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) and Global Depositary Receipts (GDRs) of OIC countries. Techniques employed in t...

  • The rapid development of the Islamic banking sector in many Muslim countries especially in Malaysia and the Middle East and its increasing acceptance in non-Muslim world has captivated much interest in recent years. Its alleged resiliency during the recent global financial crisis has prompted some to offer the Islamic banking model as a solution to the malaise of the present interest rate-based banking system, normally dubbed as the conventional banking system. A pre-dominant view among Muslim professionals and policymakers holds Islamic banking to be more equitable and more stable, aspects well-noted to be critical for societal well-beings. This view is principally based on the belie...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Raditya Sukmana; Mansor H. Ibrahim (2021)

  • This paper assesses the impact of changing competition landscape and Islamic bank penetration on bank risk, profitability and capitalization. This study utilizes an unbalanced panel dataset consisting of 37 commercial banks over the period 1997 to 2015. The paper uses a panel VAR methodology to discern the interactions between bank competition and Islamic banking presence on one hand and bank performance on the other hand. We find evidence supportive of both competition - stability and competition - fragility views for conventional banks. The results suggest that bank competition improves conventional bank risk and, at the same time, lower profitability and capital holdings. As for Is...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mansor H. Ibrahim; Kinan Salim; Moutaz Abojeib; 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...
