  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Muneeza, Aishath; Wisham, Ismail; Hassan, Rusni (2010)

  • Malaysia is a multi religious and a multi ethnic society with a plural legal structure. The banking system of country is essentially dual in nature and hence, there are two different sets of legal framework working simultaneously. Today, the Islamic Banking system which emerged in 1983 has levelled up to the conventional banking system which had rooted itself in the society a long time ago. Whether we believe it or not there are challenges and clashes at hand due to the existence of the dual system in the society and they need to be addressed properly, so that the clashes between these two types of banking system can be minimized. There are several quarrels between conventional and I...

  • Historically, the non-profit instution of waqf has played a remarkable role in developing the Islamic societies as well as in assisting the Islamic state in providing social welfare services in the health and educational sectors, suppling the basic infrastructure, providing jobs, enhancing commercial and business activities, providing food for the hungry, shelter for the poor and the needy, in addition to supporting the agricultural and industrial sectors, without incurring any cost to the government. However, this positive role played by waqf deteriorated since the end of the 19th century and has continued to deteriorate to the present time. Available in physical copy only (Call N...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Baaquie, Belal E. (1992)

  • The U(1) Kac-Moody character functions are derived from a path integral expression. It is shown that point-split regularization of the Virasoro generator also exactly regularizes the path integral. An exact derivation of the Weyl-Kac denominator is then given for an arbitrary Lie group using the semiclassical approximation and the results of the U(1) calculation.

  • path_integral_equities_dynamic_correlation_empirical_analysis_belal.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Baaquie, Belal E.; Yang, Cao; Ada, Lau; Pan, Tang (2012)

  • This paper develops a model to describe the unequal time correlation between rate of returns of different stocks. A non-trivial fourth order derivative Lagrangian is defined to provide an unequal time propagator, which can be fitted to the market data. A calibration algorithm is designed to find the empirical parameters for this model and different denoising methods are used to capture the signals concealed in the rate of return. The detailed results of this Gaussian model show that the different stocks can have strong correlation and the empirical unequal time correlator can be described by the model's propagator. This preliminary study provides a novel model for the correlator of di...

  • Book


  • Authors: Baaquie, Belal E. (2014)

  • Providing a pedagogical introduction to the essential principles of path integrals and Hamiltonians, this book describes cutting-edge quantum mathematical techniques applicable to a vast range of fields, from quantum mechanics, solid state physics, statistical mechanics, quantum field theory, and superstring theory to financial modeling, polymers, biology, chemistry, and quantum finance. Eschewing use of the Schrodinger equation, the powerful and flexible combination of Hamiltonian operators and path integrals is used to study a range of different quantum and classical random systems, succinctly demonstrating the interplay between a system's path integral, state space, and Hamiltonian...

The most striking achievements for Malaysia include the rapid growth of Islamic financial assets, the global leader status in the issuance of sukuk or Islamic bond and the robust legal and regulatory infrastructure that has been put in place...

  • The objective of this chapter is to examine the effects of the joint provision of audit and non-audit services on perceived auditor independence from the perspective of senior managers of audit firms, loan officers and public listed companies in Malaysia. The effect of join provision of audit and non-audit services might be different when auditor perform the services based on their available resources.

  • Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are one of the most successful financial innovations of the last decades. The main focus of this study is to examine the risk adjusted performance, tracking error and trading characteristics of emerging and developed markets ETF. 43 passively managed equity ETFs have been chosen to cover both markets. The results indicate that the emerging markets are less efficient in terms of index replication and possess higher tracking error compared to the developed market ETF. Conversely, emerging markets provide better risk adjusted performance. Last but not least, it is also found that assets size has positive impacts towards ETFs performance and in contrast, the e...

  • Authors: Habibollah, Salami; Shabani, Zohreh; Sadr, Seyed Kazem (2009)

  • In the present study, the productivity of capital input in different agricultural subsectors is assessed for the period 1976-2007 and the performances compared accordingly. In addition, the performances are compared in the context of various five year economic, social and cultural development plans based on the rate of growth of capital input during the implementation of the different plans. Results indicate that fisheries, and forestry sub-sectors have undergone a declining trend in the productivity of capital input, while field cropping, horticulture, and animal husbandry sub-sectors have experienced increasing trend in the productivity of capital input during the study period.

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Diaw, Abdou; Hassan, Salwana; Ng, Adam Boon Ka (2010)

  • ETFs have attracted many investors as one of the most innovative products of financial engineering. By virtue of the nascent nature of MyETF-DJIM Titan 25 and FBM 30ETF in Malaysia, comparative performance studies are essential during a financial crisis. MyETF is different from FBM 30ETF in terms of investment scope and Shariah governance structure. While MyETF has achieved its objective in tracking its index, FBM 30ETF has failed in this respect. Despite its higher total risk, MyETF performed better than its index. The same applies in the case of FBM 30ETF. Although MyETF has bigger net assets, economies of scale, and better diversification, the performances of the two funds are lack...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Rosly, Saiful Azhar; Abu Bakar, Mohd Afandi (2003)

  • The study found that Islamic banking scheme (IBS) banks have recorded higher return on assets (ROA) as they are able to utilize existing overheads carried by mainstream banks. As this lowers their overhead expenses, it is found that the higher ROA ratio for IBS banks does not imply efficiency. It is also inconsistent with their relatively low asset utilization and investment margin ratios. This finding confirmed our contention that Islamic banking that thrives on interest-like products (credit finance) is less likely to outshine mainstream banks on efficiency terms. Although Islamic credit finance products may have complied with Shariah rules, their lack of ethical content is not expe...

  • Authors: Ariff, Mohamed; Badar, Mohammad K.; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad; Hassan, Taufiq (2011)

  • In this chapter an attempt is made for the first time to assess the financial performance of Islamic banks and conventional banks by choosing a matched sample of banks to assess their financial performance across the world over a lenghty period. Islamic banking is based on replacing the pre-fixed-interest-based bank deposit-cum-lending activities with risk-sharing and profit-sharing principles advocated by Islam, which in turn appears to be consistent with the social norms of pre-modern societies prior to the rise of interest-based-fractioning banking in the last 200 years, which refers to the fractional-reserve banking from the close of the 18th century.

  • This paper investigates the relation between aggregate investment and oil volatility and its permanent and transitory components for a developing country, Malaysia. In the paper, the components generalized autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity (CGARCH) model is utilized to decompose conditional oil volatility into permanent oil volatility and transitory oil volatility. Respectively reflecting fundamental-driven and random shifts in oil volatility, they are expected to exert differential effects on aggregate investment. Adopting a vector autoregression (VAR) framework to allow feedback effects between aggregate investment and its determinants, the paper documents evidence suppo...
