  • The_impact_of_human_development_on_natural_disaster_fatalities_and_damage_panel_data_evidence_baharom.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Padli, Jaharudin; Habibullah, Muzafar Shah; Abdul Hamid, Baharom (2018)

  • Countries with high levels of human development should be able to reduce the impact of natural disasters in terms of the total numbers of people killed and affected, and damage. In this study we investigate the impact of human development indicators such as income per capita and human capital (education level) on natural disaster fatalities (total deaths, total affected and total economic losses) in 79 selected countries. Using dynamic panel data analysis, we found that the level of economic development plays an important role in mitigating the impact of natural disasters such as droughts, earthquakes, extreme temperatures, floods, storms, volcanoes, landslides and wildfires. Other fa...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Ariff, Mohamed; Cheng, Fan Fah; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad (2017)

  • This paper reports evidence of significant abnormal returns in call and put options in the New York Stock Exchange around the disclosure time of two equity funding events. The delta values as risk of options are used to adjust gross returns of calls and puts to obtain adjusted abnormal returns. Theory suggests any stock price increases around private placement announcement dates would make calls to become in-the-money, so call prices should increase: conversely, puts would become out-of-money so put prices should be unaffected. Stock price declines around seasoned equity announcement dates would make put prices to increase since puts become in-the-money: call prices, having become out...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Nizam, Esma; Ng, Adam Boon Ka; Dewandaru, Ginanjar; Nagayev, Ruslan; Nkoba, Malik Abdul Rahman (2019)

  • While there is ample evidence that non-financial firms' financial performance and social and environmental performance are related, evidence for the banking sector remains limited and inconclusive. This paper examines the impact of access to finance and environmental financing on the financial performance of the banking sector globally. Based on cross-sectional linear regressions and non-linear threshold regressions of 713 banks from 75 countries over the period 2013-2015, we find that access to finance has significantly positive effects on banks' financial performance in most estimation models controlling for both bank-specific and macroeconomic variables. The positive impact on fina...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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. In the pre-Independence period, when the country had scant human resources and little capital accumulation, there was little interest in the export of manufactured products. Instead, the country concentrated on the export of agricultural commodities and minerals.

  • Journal Article


  • 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...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Selamat, Aslam; Ariff, Mohamed; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad (2013)

  • Malaysia and Singapore are the first countries to end their 45-year old imputation tax systems by replacing it with the simpler single-tier corporate tax system. Corporations have ceased to keep records of divident tax credits required under the imputation laws with the implementation of thee single-tier tax systems. We find evidence rom Malaysian and Singapore on how the share prices responded to the announcements in 2007 and 2002 respectively. The Singapore market reacted positively to the announcement; the Malaysan results were influenced by th global credit crunch. Also, we measured the ex-dividend days moved according to theory. In both countries, the average price drop ratio mov...
