  • Finance can be thought of as an engine of transformation and intermediation that bridges gaps between financial surplus and deficit units, between now and the future and between certainty of now and uncertainty of the future. It transforms value through maturity and risk transformation. This crucial function can be considered the reason for existence of finance. It creates incentives for surplus units to postpone the certainty of their financial resources now to the uncertainty of, presumably, higher amount of these resources in the future. It also encourages the deficit units to bring the future uncertain plans forward to the more certain present. Both units take risks. In other word...

  • Shariah committee independence has been highlighted by the Shariah Governance Framework as an important credential for an effective functioning of Shariah committees. This study examined Shariah committee independence of local IFIs as perceived by the shariah committee members of the IFIs. The results identified Shariah committee independence safeguards and threats, and implied better effectiveness through clearly defined meaning of independence and guidelines or code of best practices as a guide for the committee and related parties.

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Wilson, Rodney (2009)

  • For Islamic financial institutions to have credibility, formal procedures for Shari'ah governance are required; otherwise clients would have no assurance that the institution is upholding the principles of Islam in its financial dealings. This formal assurance can be provided by national law, as in the case of Iran, which enacted the Law on Interest-Free Banking of 1983, under which all banking operations had to be Shari'ah compliant. Malaysia passed an Islamic Banking Law the same year, but it created a dual system whereby licensed Islamic banks could compete alongside those operating conventionally. Unlike in Iran, however, Malaysia instigated a system for ongoing assurance by estab...

  • Authors: Anwer, Zaheer (2017)

  • In recent years, there has been a notable increase in investor consideration for religiosity and/or ethics in investment decision making it a class of investments in its own right and an important input in portfolio selection decisions. Investment decisions are governed not only by factors including investor anticipation of future economic, geo-political trends, social changes and investment timing but also religion or belief system. The religiosity and/or ethical practices prompt investors to discard so-called 'sin stocks' and limit their investment horizons to permissible investment alternatives.

  • shariah compliant private equity finance.pdf.jpg
  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Wilson, Rodney (2009)

  • Private equity investment is potentially an important component of any wealth management strategy, and it is an asset class which because of its nature and potential double digit returns has enormous potential appeal to investors concerned with Shariah compliance. Islamic finance is about participation in and the sharing of risk, which corresponds very closely with the aim of private equity finance. Equity investors can of course suffer losses, but to date the record of Shariah compliant private equity compares favourably to its conventional counterpart, perhaps because less or, even in some cases, no borrowing is involved.

  • Authors: Lahsasna, Ahcene; Alhabshi, Syed Othman (2016)

  • The introduction of Shariah governance to the Islamic financial institutions (IFIs) is to enhance a sound internal control system of Shariah governance in the IFIs as well as a proper scope of responsibility and obligation for the corporate governance organs. This book centres on various aspects and issues of Shariah governance in the IFIs where it takes into account the international standards, parameters and practices through a cross border assessment of the Shariah governance framework (SGF) and structure that has been implemented in different jurisdiction including Malaysia.

  • Share of Islamic banking in the national banking sector of the Maldives is reaching 5%. Despite this, the Maldives has not featured in ISFIRE previously. In fact, it has not been even ranked in Islamic Finance Country Index (IFCI), published by our yearbook, Global Islamic Finance Report (GIFR). This is an important exclusion, as the country has been involved in Islamic banking and finance for more than 14 years. This article should serve as a prelude to a country report that will be included in GIFR 2018, to be published in March 2018.

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

  • This title fills an important gap in finance literature, It presents a vision of a socio-economic framework discernible from the Qur'an and explores the consequences of compliance with the rules of this framework. By integrating distributive justice, rules of behavior, stock market development, economic-growth, and social finance under a common theme, the authors argue that social capital is necessary to unite the ideals of Islamic socio-economic welfare with the present realities of the Islamic finance industry.
