  • Tourism is the lifeline and the golden goose of the economy of the Maldives, the number one honeymoon destination in the world. Tourism is a sector that has shown progressive growth in the country and the largest contribution to the GDP of the country comes from this sector, proving that tourism is the most profitable sector in the country to be invested in. However, although the Maldives is a 100% Muslim nation, the country is alien to the concept of Islamic tourism. With the rapid development of the Islamic finance industry in the country, the urge to test the practical applicability of Islamic tourism in the Maldives has grown. The year 2016 has proved that Islamic finance is here ...

  • In a book aptly titled 'This Time Is Different', Rogoff and Reinhart, two prominent economists, show that every single financial crisis over the last 800 years has had a single root cause - excessive debt. It appears that what begins as borrowing for the funding of development infrastructure can, as it builds, lead to a spiralling of debt and financial crisis. There is a circular and reciprocal relationship between debt, leverage, vulnerability and financial distress. This applies to all borrowers, governments, corporations or other entities.

  • Following the global financial crisis, many countries introduced or enhanced deposit protection schemes to increase customer confidence in their banking systems. In the Eurozone, for example, bank deposits of up to 100,000 are guaranteed. In China, as part of its financial reforms in 2015, deposits of up to 500,000 yuan are protected by the Peoples Bank. Only a minority of Muslim majority countries have formal deposit protection schemes, Malaysia being the pioneer, with the scheme provided by Perbadanan Insurans Deposit Malaysia (PIDM) covering deposits of up to RM250,000; less generous cover than the Chinese scheme.

  • Sustainability has become an emerging topic that shapes how firms strategize to secure better business opportunities and financial performance. The recent increase in the number and market share of Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) and sustainable oriented firms whether large or small has intensified competition in this new industry. However, whether it pays to be sustainable in all market types is yet to be determined. The term 'one size fits all' does not apply to sustainability, since there are complexities that require addressing. The complexity of developing a model that is suitable enough to be called sustainable and legitimate enough to matter still requires intense del...

  • Islamic finance is a tested and a trusted concept in the world today. Both Muslims and non-Muslims, irrespective of the faith convictions are adopting it. The financial crises of global economy have been proving the viability and sustainability of Islamic finance.

There were also times at which Islamic finance was associated with terrorism financing and it was perceived that due to Islamic phobia which triggered after September 9/11, the growth of Islamic finance will be inhibited. Looking back to these times, there are people who still keep wondering ...
