European Central Bank published research about Islamic finance

European Central Bank published research about Islamic finance

<p>European Central Bank, Occasional Paper No 146, June 2013</p>
<p>ABSTRACT</p>
<p>Islamic finance is based on ethical principles in line with Islamic religious law. Despite its low<br>
share of the global financial market, Islamic fi nance has been one of this sector&rsquo;s fastest growing<br>
components over the last decades and has gained further momentum in the wake of the financial<br>
crisis.</p>
<p>The paper examines the development of and possible prospects for Islamic finance, with a special<br>
focus on Europe. It compares Islamic and conventional finance, particularly as concerns risks<br>
associated with the operations of respective institutions, as well as corporate governance. The paper<br>
also analyses empirical evidence comparing Islamic and conventional financial institutions with<br>
regard to their: (i) efficiency and profitability; and (ii) stability and resilience. Finally, the paper<br>
considers the conduct of monetary policy in an Islamic banking context. This is not uncomplicated<br>
given the fact that interest rates &ndash; normally a cornerstone of monetary policy &ndash; are prohibited under<br>
Islamic finance. Liquidity management issues are thus discussed here, with particular reference to<br>
the euro area.</p>

Need to Strengthen Islamic Social Finance Sector

<p>Issues raised and discussed at length during &ldquo;International Workshop on Zakat, Waqf and Islamic Microfinance&rdquo; and the idea of &ldquo;Strengthening Islamic Social Finance Sector&rdquo; were presented by Arshad Ajmal, Vice President of Sahulat Microfinance Society, at a programme organised by Forum for Discussion on Economic Issues. The event is a joint forum of Sahulat and Radiance Viewsweekly which was held in the national capital on 26 May. Mr. Ajmal, who was the only person invited from India as a resource person on Islamic Microfinance, shared his experience which he gathered and the points he raised during the workshop. Another notable point discussed was whether an Islamic Microfinance institution should and can be treated as a banking institution. Moreover, it was pointed out that Islamic finance places itself heavily on debt instruments and less on equity instruments.</p>
