  • inflation_hedging_effectiveness_emerging_Asian_market_case_Malaysia_mansor.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H. (2011)

  • This paper empirically examines the inflation-hedging property of an emerging stock market, Malaysia, for full sample (1988–2008), pre-crisis sample (1988–1996) and post-crisis sample (1999–2008) by means of asymmetric cointegration and asymmetric error-correction modelling. The focus is on the long-run relation between stock prices and consumer prices, the adjustment speed of the stock market to restore the long-run relation and their short run interactions. From the analyses, we uncover evidence supporting the long-run inflation-hedging ability of the Malaysian stock market only during the pre-crisis period. Its hedging ability, however, weakens for the full sample and is absent pos...

  • Authors: Muneeza, Aishath (2016)

  • Maldives is a hundred percent Muslim country consisting more than thousand islands situated in the Indian Ocean. Nevertheless, the concept of Islamic finance is still new to the country as the first form of Islamic finance was introduced to the country in 2003 via the operations of Amana Takaful Maldives and it took about eight years from 2003 to establish the first Islamic Bank of the country. In 2011, the regulator of the capital markets in the country, the Capital Market Development Authority ('CMDA') undertook the project of pioneering a sukuk market in the country and this dream was realised only in 2013, when Housing Development Finance Corporation Plc ('HDFC') issued the first ...

  • 12 takaful operators providing family takaful products. Total contribution is around RM 4.2 billions. Average growth rate is around 22%. The market will double every five years.

  • institutional_quality_CO2_emission_trade_relationship_sub_saharan_africa_mansor_siong.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H.; Siong, Hook Law (2015)

  • This paper examines the roles of trade, institutional quality and their interactions in explaining carbon dioxide emissions in a panel sample of 40 Sub-Sahara African countries using the system generalised method of moments. We find that institutional reforms are unequivocally environmental improving. Meanwhile, the impacts of trade on the environment tend to depend on the institutional setting of a country. More specifically, trade openness is harmful to the environment in countries with low institutional quality and beneficial to the environment in countries with high institutional quality. This means that institutional reforms are a perquisite for the countries with low institution...

  • institutional_quality_thresholds_finance_growth_nexus_mansor.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Siong, Hook Law; W. Azman-Saini, W.N.; Ibrahim, Mansor H. (2013)

  • Using an innovative threshold estimation technique, this study examines whether the growth effect of financial development in countries with distinct levels of institutional development differs. The results demonstrate that there is a threshold effect in the finance-growth relationship. Specifically, we found that the impact of finance on growth is positive and significant only after a certain threshold level of institutional development has been attained. Until then, the effect of finance on growth is nonexistent. This finding suggests that the financial development-growth nexus is contingent on the level of institutional quality, thus supporting the idea that better finance (i.e., f...

  • This paper aims to empirically study the impact of interest rate and exchange rate risks on Islamic bank stock returns.

  • interest_rates_and_coupon_bonds_quantum_finance_belal.pdf.jpg
  • Book


  • Authors: Baaquie, Belal E. (2010)

  • The economic crisis of 2008 has shown that the capital markets need new theoretical and mathematical concepts to describe and price financial instruments. Focusing almost exclusively on interest rates and coupon bonds, this book does not employ stochastic calculus - the bedrock of the present day mathematical finance - for any of the derivations. Instead, it analyzes interest rates and coupon bonds using quantum finance. The Heath-Jarrow-Morton and the Libor Market Model are generalized by realizing the forward and Libor interest rates as an imperfectly correlated quantum field. Theoretical models have been calibrated and tested using bond and interest rates market data. Building on t...

  • Authors: Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff; Nambiar, Shankaran (2011)

  • Malaysia's trade policy has always beem prompted by pragmatic considerations.

  • Academic Proceeding


  • Authors: Md-Nor, Khalil; Zainal, Mohd-Pisal (2009)

  • This study examines factors that influence the acceptance of Internet banking among Malay and Chinese ethnic group in Malaysia using the theory of planned behavior. Respondents of this study were final year business students and MBAs in four public universities in Malaysia. Data collected from questionnaires were analyzed using multiple regressions. For both ethnic groups, the results show that attitude and subjective norm both have significant effect on the intention to use Internet banking. Interestingly, the effect of perceived behavioral control on the intention to use Internet banking was significant on the Malay ethnic group but not on the Chinese ethnic group. Practical implica...

  • Authors: Chee, Seong Ow; Abdul Hamid, Baharom; Habibullah, Muzafar Shah (2014)

  • The purpose of paper is to investigate and determine the intertemporal changes in linkages between migration (both emigration and immigration) and economic conditions in during 1990-2000 period. The paper employed cross-sectional analysis to investigate the relationship by employing data on immigration and emigration and as for economic condition the paper employed macro-variables such as real income differential (real gross domestic per capita), price level differential (consumer price index) and distance among the countries. Two different points of time were regressed cross-sectionally, with White standard being employed to remove traces of heterogeneity, albeit, 1990 and 2000. Resu...

  • Authors: Ow, Wilson Chee Seong; Abdul Hamid, Baharom; Habibullah, Muzafar Shah (2015)

  • The purpose of this study is to determine the intertemporal changes that occurred in 1990 and 2000 in the link between migration and environmental degradation in the Asia Pacific region. The study used carbon dioxide emission index, gross domestic per capita income, consumer price index and distance among the countries to conduct a cross-sectional analysis to investigate this relationship. Two different points of time were regressed cross-sectionally and White standard was employed to remove traces of heterogeneity. Results clearly indicated that intertemporal effects between 1990 and 2000 were negligible. Overall, the study found that in the case...

  • 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)

  • Authors: Alhabshi, Syed Adam (2016)

  • There is a misfit in applying multilayered and opaque Tijarah contracts for investment purposes.

It has been carefully drafted to ensure that it is Shariah compliant and can be applied in Common Law jurisdictions as well. It is intended to pave a clear route to harmonious convergence between Shariah and Common Law ... Available in downloadable format.
