  • This research attempts to show that risk sharing, as defined under Islamic finance, makes financial systems antifragile. The recent financial crisis has given rise to discussions around a new term known as antifragility, used for evaluating the long-term stability of a financial system. Antifragility specifies conditions under which systems become resilient to shocks caused by Black Swans. These are highly unpredictable outlier events that have a major negative (or positive) consequence when they occur, with their occurence only being explained retrospectively. According to this concept, the long-term survivability of any system centers exclusively on its antifragile nature, that is, ...

  • Authors: Muneeza, Aishath; Mustapha, Zakariya (2019)

  • Technology has advanced with the spread of internet services. Statistics by the United States have estimated that internet facilities have been made available to over a third of the total world population and, in the same vein, access to mobile phones has been rendered to about 85 percent of the population. Crowdfunding finds widespread support via internet platforms and is gaining momentum as a means to empower people and businesses hitherto unable to access banking or access limited facilities therefrom. Today, it has become a mechanism for raising funds to build multi-billion-dollar industries. It is said that the difficulties encountered while struggling to source funds by newly-f...

  • Authors: Tajul Arifin, Asma'; Arshad, Nur Aishah; Muneeza, Aishath (2018)

  • The emergence of innovative digital financial technologies, namely blockchain and crowdfunding, indicates new ways to reach the poor and economically vulnerable groups. This paper contributes to the emerging literature on financial technology by presenting the case of crowdfunding in financial inclusion. The rationale behind this inquiry is to demonstrate the relevance of crowdfunding to financial inclusion, and how might blockchain technology fuel the development of crowdfunding. This paper also constitutes one of the first attempts to analyse crowdfunding in Malaysia and Shariah-compliant crowdfunding. In this paper, a desk research is conducted where journal articles, books, magazi...

  • The objective of the paper is to discuss the application of tawarruq in Islamic banking generally. The modus operandi of tawarruq in Islamic banking is an essential discussion in jurisdiction like Malaysia, where most Islamic banks use tawarruq to structure Islamic banking products. This paper employs a systematic literature review on best practice models and mechanism of current tawarruq application. The outcome of the research helps to understand the modus operandi of tawarruq transactions practically with a view towards understanding its future prospects in the era of fintech. It is envisaged that this research will assist the growing understanding of the existing application of ta...

  • The internationalization of Islamic finance in Europe and other parts of the world spurns us to believe that our Shariah Registered Financial Planner (Shariah RFP) programme is relevant to meet market demands. In Malaysia, Islamic finance is growing exponentially. This new Shariah RFP text module features fully updated information to reflect the current changes in the market sphere. First written by industry leading practitioners in 2008, the work has been further enhanced to correctly reflect the exponential changes Islamic finance has undergone over the recent years as the industry has seen the introduction of many new Islamic financial products in the market place.

  • Although "Arab Spring" is the name given to the latest events in the Middle East, I am of the opinion that the Arab world has just entered into a winter. Dictators are falling like leaves but it will take a while for the spring to blossom. Moreover, unlike in nature, the transition is not an automatic process. Spring will come only if certain pre-conditions are fulfilled.

  • The worldwide colossal failures of financial institutions in the wake of the 2007-2010 financial turmoil the yesteryear advocates of liberalization and privatization converted almost overnight into vocal supporters of raising the safety walls around the interests of various stakeholders, especially the depositors. Admittedly, it was the heightened lure of leverage gains that led the financial institutions to expand credit beyond what the volume and quality of their capital assets warranted without crossing the limits of safety. The devastation led to a focus-shift so to say at the national and international level in finance specifically to capital adequacy that financial institutions ...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: JinZi, Chu; Muneeza, Aishath (2019)

  • China's One Belt and One Road (OBOR) is a global trade network across Asia, Africa, Europe and Oceania. Also known as Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), OBOR is an attempt to redraw ancient Silk Road to foster global trade and economic development. Nearly 30 Muslims-majority countries are part of China's vision of BRI. The purpose of this paper is twofold: first, to investigate how public private partnership (PPP) has been applied in BRI projects; and second, to explore how Islamic finance can fit within a PPP context. This paper proposes a framework for using Islamic finance in infrastructure PPP projects. This paper also analyses two PPP projects where Islamic finance was deployed as p...

  • As the Fintech evolution transforms the banking sectors worldwide, the players in the market are hard-pressed to experiment the tremendous opportunities that the application of the likes of Blockchain, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence et cetera would have on the financial world. As the volume of the data continue to expand, the possibilities that this raw data materializes in the form of opportunities lean towards limitless. Organizations such as financial institutions must be vigilant of the prospects that such data can reveal and the extend of leverage that they can exercise to build insights for their consumers, products, and services. Big data analytics have alone become the d...
