  • Malaysian investors perspectives on Islamic stock market_Marjan_Syed Othman_Mansur Masih.jpg.jpg
  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Naseri, Marjan; Alhabshi, Syed Othman; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (2017)

  • This chapter attempts to analyse the extent of financial integration of Islamic stock markets in two developed (the US and Japan) and two developing countries (China and India). The study takes the perspectives of the Malaysian Islamic investors in making their decisions about portfolio diversification, risk management and asset allocation. Despite the growing interest in Islamic finance, there are a few empirical studies investigating integration of Islamic stock markets. As a result, there is a certain gap in the literature pertaining to this area of research. By applying recent relevant techniques such as MGARCH-DCC and wavelets (both CWT and MODWT) ...

  • We assess the managerial skills of globally invested 686 ethical funds taking into consideration the macroeconomic efficiency and fund inflows/outflows. It was observed that managers exhibit negative selection and market timing skills but no consistent pattern for style timing. A cursory glance at the literature indicates little support for superior managerial abilities, especially in terms of timing skills. Notwithstanding, some have highlighted the importance of including fund flows in the traditional models and argue that excluding it can lead to spurious timing skills (Bollen and Busse, 2001). The findings indicate that the investors increase their exposure to funds during a bulli...

  • Authors: Naeem Azmi, Choudhari Wajahat; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad; Mohd Rasid, Mohamed Eskandar Shah (2018)

  • This paper examines the flow-performance relationship and the presence of "Smart money effect" in Socially responsible funds (SRFs) and Shariah compliant funds (SCFs). A survivorship bias free sample of 686 funds comprising of 212 SCFs and 474 SRFs were analysed with investment focus in the Asia pacific, Emerging markets, Europe, Global (with no focus to any specific country or region), Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and North America. The findings show that flow-performance relationship is asymmetric for both the funds as the response to positive returns is more as compare to the negative returns for the last/current year as well as the last/current month. There is also a signif...

  • Authors: Ng, Adam Boon Ka; Ibrahim, Mansor H.; Mirakhor, Abbas (2015)

  • Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to set forth seven broad recommendations and 15 specific initiatives within a four-dimensional framework for the development of social capital in Islamic finance, particularly the stock market, given its role as the first best means of risk sharing. Design/methodology/approach – The four-dimensional framework comprises dimensions of principle and value, trust-reinforcing regulation, investment opportunity and infrastructure, as well as reputational intermediaries. Findings – A web of multi-pronged initiatives that are mutually reinforcing is proposed considering the multifaceted dimensions of social capital and the various possible transmission...

  • Authors: Zada, Najeeb, Lahsasna, Achene & Saleem, Muhammad Yusuf (2016)

  • An effective and universally acceptable legal, regulatory, and insolvency framework for Islamic finance in general and sukuk in particular is currenly lacking. Of particular concern is the question of how a secular court may protect the rights of sukuk holders. East Cameron Partner (ECP) sukuk is an interesting case where many of issues in sukuk insolvencies have been highlighted. The current study is concerned with the background of ECP sukuk issuance, its insolvency, its filing for bankruptcy under Chapter 11 of the United States' Bankruptcy Code and the behaviour of the US bankruptcy court towards the issue of the ownership of the sukuk holders...

  • Authors: Nagayev, Ruslan; Disli, Mustafa; Inghelbrecht, Koen; Ng, Adam Boon Ka (2016)

  • This paper investigates whether commodities offer potential diversification benefits for Islamic equity index investors in light of possible financialization of commodity markets. Using MGARCH-DCC and Wavelet Coherence analyses, our findings reveal that correlations between commodity markets and the Dow Jones Islamic Market World Index are time-varying and highly volatile throughout the January 1999 - April 2015 period. A substantial and persistent increase was observed in the return correlations between commodities and Islamic equity at the onset of the 2008 financial crisis. However, trends in the recent two years suggest that this association is heading towards its pre-crisis level...

  • Have commodities and equity become a "financialized market of one"? Is such oneness persistent? Do diversification benefits still exist? Evidence behind these enquiries offers important insights for policymakers, governments, traders and investors, and constitutes the main motivation for this paper. To assess the viability of commodities as an alternative asset class for Islamic equity investors, we present evidence on the extent to which returns in commodities and Islamic equity markets move in sync in both time and frequency domains. Our findings reveal that, throughout the January 1999-April 2015 period, correlations between commodities and Islamic equity were highly volatile and t...

  • The first Malaysia sukuk as a new Islamic financial debt security was issued as a private sector issue by Shell Company (M) Bhd, and raised RM125 million (US$45 million) in 1990. However, sukuk had been introduced earlier in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan back in the 1980s, but the debut of the 1990 issue was after the institutional development of the market for sukuk in several locations in the Middle East and Southeast Asia, and which is now in major financial centres such as in London and Zurich.

  • 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...
