  • Studies of Islamic banks' profitability are an important tool towards improving performance, evaluating bank operations and determining management plan to help in increasing the chance for the banks to survive in competitive markets. The robust growth in financing and investment activities across most jurisdictions in various real sectors has helped Islamic banks to record generous asset growth rates in their balance sheets. However, the returns become subdued during the financial crisis of years of 2008-2009, reaching lows of ROA 0.74% and ROE 6.16% in 2009 (IFSB, 2014). Over the last twenty years, market conditions in banking sector have undergone extensive changes on both demand an...

  • Islamic banking industry has unprecedentedly witnessed a rapid growth since its inception four decades back in the late 1970s. However, the prospect of this flourishing industry is fast becoming gloomy in recent years. The growth of Islamic banking almost matches the conventional banking, and their products are hardly distinguishable. Although the market growth slows down in the aftermath of the global financial crises in 2008, the Islamic banking market has witnessed increasing competition. Islamic banks become more competitive and they managed to increase their market share meanwhile, conventional banks have successfully responded to the challenge by launching Islamic windows and su...

  • Islamic banks have proliferated and emerged as important players in the global banking industry especially in the Muslim-majority countries. The recent increase in the number and market share of Islamic banks has intensified the competition in this new industry. Despite its importance, the increasing competition in Islamic banking market not only from its own Islamic peers, but also from commercial banks has not been adequately addressed nor its consequences have been investigated. This thesis aims to shed the light on this important issue by investigating the effect of competition on the efficiency of both Islamic and conventional banks ...

  • The issues of earning management has received attention from practitioners and academicians since the last couple of decades in banking sector. It is evident that bank managers practice the discretion in estimating loan/finance loss provisions for various motives such as reducing earnings variability (Agarwal, Chomsisengphet, Liu & Rhee, 2007; Kanagaretnam, 2004). Majority of the studies have been focusing on conventional banks, and only a few studies have focussed on Islamic banks, for instance, Zoubi and Al-Khazali (2007) and Othman and Mersni (2014). The significance of examining the issues in the context of Islamic banks stems from the fact that Islamic banks should not manage the...

  • The paper investigates whether there is a significance difference between the practices of discretionary loan/finance loss provisions between Islamic and conventional banks.

In order to achieve research objectives, the two-stage approach is adopted to examine the factors that may influence the behaviour of discretionary loan/finance loss provisions with specific emphasize on the efficien...

  • In the last five decades, advances in information technology and in financial innovations have made possible the emergence of an immense capacity for banks to switch regimes from risk transfer to risk shifting. The devastating power of this capacity was amply pronounced in the financial crisis of 2007/2008. The fallout of which has intensified calls for a re-examination of current banking model and its risk management (or rather mismanagement). Risk shifting is, axiomatically, absent in an ideal Islamic financial system. The Islamic banking model, thus, provides unique paradigm with risk sharing at its core, potentially fostering financial inclusion and reducing the incidence of bank ...

  • The original intent of conventional banking was to serve as pure intermediary between surplus fund holders and deficit units in the economy. In this role banks transferred risk from depositors to borrowers. An edifice of deposit insurance system and supervisory/regulatory structure was erected to protect the creditor at the expense of the debtor. In the last five decades, however, advances in information technology and in financial innovations have made possible the emergence of an immense capacity for rapid regime switching from risk transfer by risk shifting was amply pronounced in the financial crisis of 2007/2008. The fallout from the crisis has intensified calls for a re-examinat...
