  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Rizvi, Syed Aun Raza; Dewandaru, Ginanjar; Bacha, Obiyathulla Ismath; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (2014)

  • An efficient market has been theoretically proven to be a key component for effective and efficient resource allocation in an economy. This paper incorporates econophysics with Efficient Market Hypothesis to undertake a comparative analysis of Islamic and developed countries’ markets by extending the understanding of their multifractal nature. By applying the Multifractal Detrended Fluctuation Analysis (MFDFA) we calculated the generalized Hurst exponents, multifractal scaling exponents and generalized multifractal dimensions for 22 broad market indices. The findings provide a deeper understanding of the markets in Islamic countries, where they have traces of highly efficient performa...

  • Journal Article


  • 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...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur; Farouk, Faizal (2016-05-10)

  • This paper is the first attempt to investigate the multiscale tendency of the co-movement and cross-correlation of nine Islamic Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) returns across the global developed and emerging markets using both wavelet coherence and wavelet MODWT methods. The wavelet coherence results tend to indicate consistent co movement between most of the ETF returns especially in the long run. The study also uncovers evidence of wide variation of co-movement across the time-scales during the global financial crisis and the Euro debt crisis. Strong co-movement can be observed during the global financialcrisis, both for the medium term investors and long term investors. The paper studi...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Dewandaru, Ginanjar; Masih, Rumi; Bacha, Obiyathulla Ismath; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (2015)

  • This study constructs active Islamic portfolios using a multi-style rotation strategy, derived from the three prominent styles, namely, momentum, value, and quality investing. We use the stocks that are consistently listed in the U.S. Dow Jones Islamic index for a sample period from 1996 to 2012. We also include two macroeconomic mimicking portfolios to capture the premiums of industrial production growth and inflation innovation, accommodating the economic regime shifts. Based on the information coefficients, we find the six-month momentum and the fractal measure as momentum factors; the enterprise yield (gross profit/TEV) and the book to market ratio as valuation factors; the gross ...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Dewandaru, Ginanjar; Masih, Rumi; Bacha, Obiyathulla Ismath; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (2015)

  • We provide a new contribution to trading strategies by using multi-fractal de-trended fluctuation analysis (MF-DFA), imported from econophysics, to complement various momentum strategies. The method provides a single measure that can capture both persistency and anti-persistency in stock prices, accounting for multifractality. This study uses a sample of Islamic stocks listed in the U.S. Dow Jones Islamic market for a sample period covering 16 years starting in 1996. The findings show that the MF-DFA strategy produces monthly excess returns of 6.12%, outperforming other various momentum strategies. Even though the risk of the MF-DFA strategy may be relatively higher, it can still prod...

  • Authors: Mustaffa Kamil, Nazrol Kamil (2014)

  • This dissertation discusses a number of issues in Islamic equity, which can be broadly defined as equity investments that meet certain Shari'ah compliance requirements. A particular stock is deemed as Shari'ah compliant when it "passes" a screening process which encapsulates a number of relevant Islamic principles, rules and tenets. This process, commonly termed Shari'ah stock screening, essentially involves the negative screening or filtering of stocks. While variations may exist from one jurisdiction to another, and between a number of different Islamic index providers ... Available in physical copy only (Call Number: t HG 4551 N336)

  • Authors: Mustaffa Kamil, Nazrol Kamil; Alhabshi, Syed Othman; Bacha, Obiyathulla Ismath; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (2014)

  • We made the first estimate of the proportion of fund alpha statistically attributable to luck rather than skill for a sample of Malaysian Islamic equity funds. Broadly, the funds do not outperform market benchmarks. In the limited instances where performance is superior, based on a contemporary methodology, as much as 47% of the observed positive fund alpha is statistically attributable to luck. Thus, at 5% significance level, we find only 1.95% of our funds to be genuinely skilled. Our findings raise questions regarding the equitability of these funds levying fixed fees, making a case for potential innovation in fund remuneration structure.

  • Authors: Kabir, Sarkar Humayun (2013)

  • 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)
