  • Authors: Hanifa, Mohamed Hisham; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur; Bacha, Obiyathulla Ismath (2014)

  • The last decade has witnessed a rapid expansion of Islamic financial instruments with a notable proliferation of Islamic investment certificates called sukuk. In spite of the expansion, research to appraise their growth implications remains limited. This paper investigated the structural differences within sukuk and conventional and their implications on investor return reactions. It also looked at the investors' different decision making time horizon dimensions in response to the respective debt security's announcement. Our sample consisted of 158 conventional bonds and 129 sukuk issuers between 2000 and 2013. Event-study methodology and wavelet analysis were used resulting in three ...

  • Authors: Habibullah, Muzafar Shah; Mohd Tahir, Hirnissa; Abdul Hamid, Baharom (2013)

  • This paper investigates the long run Granger causality between defense spending and economic growth for 20 selected Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) by employing the Error-Correction Model (ECM) framework using annual data for the period 1960 to 2005. defense spending (milex) is measured using the ratio of defense spending to gross domestic product (GDP); while economic growth (rgdpc) is proxy by the real GDP per capita. The results of our study indicated that one way long run Granger causality was found running from economic growth to defense spending for Burkina Faso, Indonesia, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Togo and Turkey. On the other hand, one way long run Granger causalit...

  • Authors: Cizakca, Murat (2014)

  • The statistics shows that of the richest top 20 countries in 2003, 19 were capitalist democracies. This article, thus, attempts to assess the potential association between economic development/ capitalism and democracy. In arguing for a positive nexus between the two, it also aims to locate the historical roots of this relationship. In doing so, the paper argues that Western capitalism historically evolved from market economy and capitalism developed under Islamic civilizations, which preceded the modern nature of Western capitalism by at least six hundreds years. It also argues that fundamental principles of modern democracy can be traced back to political structure of the initial Is...

  • Applying the General-to-Specific modelling on World Bank Enterprise Survey data for 266 economies, this paper models five performance indicators based on 80 potential factors derived from firm characteristics, finance, informality, infrastructure, innovation, technology, regulation, taxes, trade and workforce concerning small and medium enterprises (SMEs). We find that the factors vary regarding statistical significance and magnitude between small and medium enterprises. For example, the percent of firms using e-mail to interact with clients/suppliers has a positive effect on the annual employment growth of medium enterprises, but not the case of small enterprises.

  • There are some fundamental problems encountered by developing countries such as over-accumulation of inefficient modes of saving, such as gold and real estate, dominance of banking sector as reflected in low public awareness towards risk-sharing instruments and alternatives, low share of public securities in household balance sheets. The fact that risk-sharing finance instruments can address most of the contemporary finance problems in an effective way, which forms the basis of this study. In this respect, the aim of this study is to illustrate case that a mudarabah-baed public finance instrument can offer comparable better risk-return profile for investors ... Available in physi...

  • Academic Presentation


  • Authors: Wilson, Rodney (2016)

  • Following the global financial crisis, many countries introduced or enhanced deposit protection schemes to increase customer confidence in their banking systems. In the Eurozone, for example, bank deposits of up to 100,000 are guaranteed. In China, as part of its financial reforms in 2015, deposits of up to 500,000 yuan are protected by the Peoples Bank. Only a minority of Muslim majority countries have formal deposit protection schemes, Malaysia being the pioneer, with the scheme provided by Perbadanan Insurans Deposit Malaysia (PIDM) covering deposits of up to RM250,000; less generous cover than the Chinese scheme.

  • FDI is the central topic of contemporary economics. Its role in propping up the economy has long been demonstrated, and the FDI inflow is thus competed fiercely by OIC member countries for the sake of economic development. To succeed in bringing in FDI, however, requires governments to identify and analyze the determinant factors of FDI. For this purpose, we use multilinear regression to process the data of FDI and its possible determinants variables within the OIC members from 1992 to 2010 ...

  • Understanding the determinants of portfolio investment inflows is imperative in a region highly susceptible to large amount of capital inflows like ASEAN. And to formulate the right policy, intervention and upgrade, ASEAN needs to have a good grasp on these determinants before it can manage volatile capital flows and the accompanying disruptive potential. Although a number of studies focusing on the drivers of gross capital inflows into EMEs has been established, one on ASEAN's has been largerly left out. The need for studying gross inflows is simple, as its movement has direct implication on financial stability and the vulnerability of the overall financial system. Available in p...

  • This paper extracts key variables from documented findings on bank intermediation margins of two types of banks in the Organisation of Islamic Countries. The intermediation margins used as the dependent variable are: net interest margins of conventional banks and the net profit margins of Islamic banks. To overcome the endogeneity issue of variables, an appropriate econometric procedure namely the dynamic GeneralizedMethod ofMoments is applied using data from 105 commercial banks over 14 years. The results are interesting: there is a significant difference in the margins across the two types of banks, 2.17% and 1.61% respectively. Capital adequacy, management quality, and diversificat...

  • The ability of banks in giving out loans and investments depends very much on their ability of attracting deposits. Unlike its conventional counterpart, Islamic principles forbid Islamic banks to take any interest-related income amid the fact that deposits are an important source of fund for its operational and financing. Consequently, the risk of deposit withdrawal by depositors is an important aspect that should be well managed in both conventional and Islamic banking system. Therefore, the objective of this study is to examine the effect of selected economic and bank specific variables on deposits placed at the Islamic and conventional banks ...

  • Many Muslim individual and institutional investors seek to invest only in stocks that are compliant with the Shari'ah (i.e. Islamic law). Among others, Dow Jones addressed this demand and has developed their proprietary screening methodologies to identify Shari'ah compliant firms (SC). One key factor that distinguishes SC firms from their non-compliant peers (SNC) is that the former is not allowed to cross the leverage threshold of 33%. Due to the restrictions imposed on them, it is expected that SC firms exhibit different capital structure compared to the SNC firms. The purpose of this initial comparative study is to analyze the most reliable debt determinants identified in the liter...

While, earthquake, landslides, drought, extreme temperature, wildfire and volcano eruptions contribute to the remaining 23 percent. In many developing countries, the frequent occurrences of natural disasters, particularly floods are not uncommon. Yearly recurrence of floods bring devastate economies. The objective of the present study is to investigate factors that can mitigate the impact of floods on human fatalities and damages.

The authors conclude that, with trade financing as the the main activity of foreign banks, they did not benefit much from the growth of the economy per se. What has actually happened is that the business growth of domestic banks has been at the expense of foreign banks.

  • The microfinance industry can reach the poor in large scale and yet attain profitability. To maintain these two objectives which is known as double bottom line, microfinance institutions (MFIs) have to find the right balance between financial sustainability and social performance. However, there have been considerable debates on whether the goals of the double bottom line have been compromised. It is argued that to attain profitability, MFIs have allegedly shifted away from its mandate of serving the poorest borrowers in pursuit of financial sustainability.

In the riba-free system, the Islamic bank assumes a role of a trading entity. It undertakes a trading position and exposes itself to business risk as the asset is booked on its balance sheet.
