  • The primary goal of this paper is to explore the viability of initiating Islamic finance (IF) in an unchartered economy. Canada is taken as a case study for this paper. To achieve our objective, we proceed in two stages. The first stage involves the analysis of market opportunities for IF. More precisely, the first stage involves the cost/benefit analysis which would enable the IF industry to see whether it is feasible for them to initiate. Second, the more challenging stage involves the analysis with regard to the barriers in offering IF products.

  • The subprime crisis that peaked in 2008 has pushed the world economy into the deepest recession since the end of World War II.

By the end of 2013, Islamic financial assets were estimated to be around US$1.3 trillion to US$1.5 trillion. Although Islamic assets are roughly less than 1 percent of global financial assets, their rapid growth, especially in Southeast Asia and the Middle East, and their s...

  • Authors: Mirakhor, Abbas; Ng, Adam Boon Ka; Dewandaru, Ginanjar; Abdul Hamid, Baharom (2017)

  • In a risk transfer and shifting financial systems, an interest rate based debt contract is an "impossible contract," since, under the axioms of conventional economics, the borrower has an incentive not to repay the loan. Such impossible contract is made possible by creating a virtual world of certainty through mechanisms such as collateral requirements and an edifice of legal, administrative, policy incentive mechanisms that include positive and negative enforcements that protect the creditor. The society has to bear huge costs to make them possible. Risk sharing has the potential to enhance efficiency as each party to contracts has "skin-in-the-game", thus eliminating or minimizing t...

  • Islamic financial institutions (IFIs) have enjoyed rapid growth globally and the total global assets of the industry as of end-2014 exceeded USD2.0 trillion or a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.4% between 2009 and 2014.

Likewise, leading markets like Hong Kong, the Philippines, Singapore and the UK have initiated regulatory reforms with the aim to build well-governed Islamic banking a...
