  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Agil Natt; Syed Othman Alhabshi; Mohd-Pisal Zainal (2009)

  • This paper discusses the challenges in measuring the gaps and developing human capital to cater for the booming of Islamic financial services industry. While the need for highly trained manpower in the Islamic financial services industry is well-acknowledged, the root of the problem is primarily due to skills mismatch within the Islamic finance industry. This paper proposes a holistic approach to human capital development as the fundamental solution to the skills mismatch within the financial services industry, Islamic and conventional alike. The significant contribution of this paper lies in the competency model which is universal in nature. Programmes run by institutions such as INC...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Beebee Salma Sairally; Marjan Muhammad; Madaa Munjid Mustafa (2016)

  • This research aims to compare the regulatory capital instruments for Islamic banking institutions (IBIs) - in particular the qualifying Additional Tier 1 (AT1) capital instruments - as defined by Basel III, Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) and IFSB-15 (issued by the Islamic Financial Services Board). Principally, the research examines the Shari'ah issues, especially related to subordination, arising in equity-based contracts when used for structuring AT1 capital instruments.

The study finds that the most appropriate Shari'ah contract that would be suitable for structuring AT1 capital instrume...

In the new period, it is aimed to provide more innovative, inclusive and practical services by sharing the authorized data of customers with FinTech companies.

  • Global agendas are aggressively gearing towards climate change strategies and funding the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The total investment gap for successfully achieving the 169 targets in developing countries is estimated at USD2.5 trillion per year (UNCTAD 2020). Unfortunately, limited data and challenges in data consensus have significantly inhibited monitoring bodies' ability to accurately determine how much and where it is needed. Furthermore, developing countries have been slow in developing sustainable fund structures and even slower in attracting impact investment for the SDGs (UNCTAD 2019). Impact investing is defined as "investments made with th...
