The study adopts a triangulation methodological approach, which consists of questionnaire survey and semi-structured interviews. It focuses on Malaysian technology startups, entrepreneurs and their financing needs mainly at two stages: the early stage and the later stage . The study examines the following dependent vari...

  • The issue of whether banks should diversify or focus their portfolios is theoretically and empirically open to debate. Traditional wisdom in banking argues that diversification can reduce risk and improve retums. The theory of corporate finance, however, contends that diversification increases eamings volatility, write-downs and write-offs, agency problems and inefficiency. While the former suggests that banks should be as diversified as possible, the latter recommends that banks should focus their activities. In an attempt to test these arguments, numerous empirical studies have been conducted - primarily on conventional banks in single-banking systems from developed economies and la...

  • Islamic banking has been developing and expanding all around the world for the past decades and it continues to develop at an accelerated pace in some countries in recent years. However, the development of Islamic banking is unevenly distributed across the countries. Most of the Islamic banks are located in the Middle East and North African regions. Despite of the huge Muslim populations, some countries like Indonesia and Pakistan are still having a small share of Islamic bank asset as compared to those of the MENA region. This situation raises a question of what actually contributes to the development of Islamic banking. A vast number of literatures with regards to the financial deve...

  • Wealth inequality has been a core field of research in economics in the post-Global Financial Crisis era since it is an important driver of economic/financial crises and inhibits long-term growth. Compelling evidence indicates that wealth inequality has been increasing over and above income inequality but traditional theories of inequality lack in explaining the causes of such an increase in wealth inequality. This study shows that interest-based debt contracts may be the underlying cause of wealth inequality. The study discusses that asset-based redistribution, which targets the re-distribution of wealth through re-designation of financial contracts, has pronounced advantages over an...

The principles of promoting exchange and prohibition of interest-rate based transactions are understood as endorsing risk sharing economic system is said to be incompatible in an open and modern market like today. This view was contrary to the spirit of the 2012 Kuala Lumpur Declaration, where Islamic-scholars, jurisprudents, and economists all vouched to force the enactment of risk sharing principle into our economic system.

  • The changes in equity index composition have a dual impact, first, to the constituent stocks that make up the index and second, to the index funds that track the index. This study investigates the index effect at constituent stocks level and index funds level using Shari'ah blue-chip indices and their corresponding i-ETFs. The findings of this study provide a new evidence on price discovery contrary to index effect reported in conventional index studies. Specifically, the study discovers the index effect in an opposite direction, i.e., additions suffered negative abnormal returns while deletions gained positive abnormal returns around index revision period.

  • Infrastructure is the backbone of modem economies; an adequate and efficient public infrastructure is essential for nations to achieve their economic growth objectives. Although the need and role of infrastructure are well recognized, little attention has been paid to the risks and pitfalls of the current infrastructure financing structures. The enormous infrastructure deficit and the increasing instances of debt restructurings, infrastructure project failures and expensive government bailouts, present enough reason for a deeper thought and action towards making infrastructure financing more robust. Through the thesis, the researcher sheds light on the problems related to such forms o...

  • Understanding the determinants of portfolio investment inflows is imperative in a region highly susceptible to large amount of capital inflows like ASEAN. And to formulate the right policy, intervention and upgrade, ASEAN needs to have a good grasp on these determinants before it can manage volatile capital flows and the accompanying disruptive potential. Although a number of studies focusing on the drivers of gross capital inflows into EMEs has been established, one on ASEAN's has been largerly left out. The need for studying gross inflows is simple, as its movement has direct implication on financial stability and the vulnerability of the overall financial system. Available in physi...

  • Following the U.S. Subprime Crises of 2007-08, many developed countries went into deep recession. In the literature, there are many reasons provided as probable causes of the crisis. However, it is undeniable that the flaws of the conventional financial system and home financing methods are among the important sources of the crisis. In this thesis, we argue that the damage caused by the Subprime crisis may have been avoided to a considerable extent if true profit and loss sharing (PLS) based method of financing has been applied. In that regards, we suggest an improved version of Islamic home financing called the Enhanced Musharakah Mutanaqisah (EMM). Available in physical copy on...

  • This study empirically investigates the financial integration threshold effects and risk sharing implication for Islamic countries from 1980 - 2011. The study utilizes threshold effect technique for the non-dynamic panel introduced by Hansen (1999). We focus on the four different types of financial market integration measures, which are (i) full financial market (ii) equities (iii) capital market and (iv) governance.

  • Crowdfunding as a part of sharing economy is a fast developing method of projects finance mobilization.

Moreover, risk sharing is the essence of Islamic finance and equity crowdfunding potentially is a proper Musharakah risk sharing scheme to be compliance with Shariah of Islam.

  • Risk shifting is, axiomatically, absent in an ideal Islamic banking system, where equity holders are expected to share assets' upside and downside potential with investment account holders (depositors). The Islamic banking model, thus, provides unique paradigm with risk sharing at its core. However, the present formation of Islamic banking has grown out of conventional banking and uses many of its techniques and instruments. Whereas significant research has delineated the theoretical foundations of Islamic banking and its axiomatic characteristics, empirical assessment of the implications of present form Islamic banking is relatively limited and often focused on issues of efficiency, ...

  • The microfinance industry can reach the poor in large scale and yet attain profitability. To maintain these two objectives which is known as double bottom line, microfinance institutions (MFIs) have to find the right balance between financial sustainability and social performance. However, there have been considerable debates on whether the goals of the double bottom line have been compromised. It is argued that to attain profitability, MFIs have allegedly shifted away from its mandate of serving the poorest borrowers in pursuit of financial sustainability. This phenomenon is described as "mission drift" ... Available in physical copy and downloadable format (Call Number: t HG 178....

The sample covers the global U.S. portfolios and Malaysian portfolios with multiple asset classes, as well as the portfolios with a specific asset class in several regions. The study uses the recent mean-variance spanning test in multiple regimes, which not only accounts for tail risk but also identifies the source of va...
