Antifragility of Islamic finance
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, its ability to absorb and actually benefit from Black Swan-type shocks. This research aims to investigate risk sharing Islamic finance, qualitatively (via literature-based research) and quantitatively (via mathematical modeling), as an antifragile system ...
