On the state of financial research: Is it in a silo?

This study on the state of financial research analysed the citations made in leading business and economics journals in the period 1997–2020. It found that, contrary to other business fields, and despite citing more references, finance researchers overlooked the fruitful mode of knowledge creation by integrating advances from disciplines other than economics. Additionally, citations in economics became disproportionate to older papers. Furthermore, intradisciplinary citations remained predominantly in the same four journals, although others became prominent. These findings on the state of financial research supplement other issues inhibiting finance knowledge progression and have inferences regarding the training of future scholars.

Volatility and correlation of Islamic and conventional indices during crises

We examine the correlation and volatility of Islamic indices and their conventional counterparts during the 2008–2009 Global Financial Crisis as well as the Covid-19 pandemic. We provide evidence that the volatility of Islamic indices is relatively lower than that of conventional peers during turmoil periods. Consistent with the decoupling hypothesis, our results indicate that the volatility of Islamic and the volatility of conventional indices tend to move in tandem in tranquil times but diverge in times of crises. Our results also indicate that the correlation between Islamic and conventional indices is a priced risk factor for Islamic index returns.

Oil prices and Mexico’s exchange rates in North America

Evidence indicates that since the early 2000s, the central bank in Mexico has been able to implement a solid and credible monetary policy, which has resulted in maintaining the purchasing power of the Mexican peso. Motivated by such evidence and the fact that Mexico (like Canada and the US) is a major oil‐producing country, we set out to examine the dynamic relationship among oil prices and Mexico‐Canada and Mexico‐US exchange rates for 2000–2020. Our findings indicate that (i) these series are co‐integrated and possess a long‐run equilibrium relationship, (ii) oil prices asymmetrically respond to eliminate disequilibrium and (iii) both Mexico‐Canada and Mexico‐US exchange rates are weakly exogenous. Such findings point to the success of the central bank in largely shielding Mexico’s exchange rates from oil price fluctuations in the NAFTA region.

Conventional vs Islamic banking and macroeconomic risk: Impact on asset price bubbles

This paper examines how the liability side of Islamic banks is impacted by the risk in the macro economy. The paper first develops theoretical models for conventional and Islamic banks. For conventional banks, we argue that during periods of rising risk in the economy, investors with higher risk aversion prefer bank deposits as a haven compared to other asset classes, causing conventional banks to be flushed with excess liquidity, which is then disposed of in the form of risky loans. This may create asset price bubbles and a further increase in the overall risk of the economy. For Islamic banks, we build a theoretical model with a religious conscious customer base who demands products with religious compliance. The increased self-regulatory environment faced by Islamic banks on the backdrop of religious compliance helps reducing the influx of liquidity and conversion into risky loans during periods of heightened …

Does the size of Islamic banking matter for industry growth: international evidence

Islamic banking, which has witnessed unprecedented growth in the last quarter of the century is hypothesized to be able to contribute to the development of the financial sector and thus to economic growth through tools inherent to this faith-based model of banking. We test the hypothesis that a higher relative presence of Islamic banking is beneficial to the growth of external finance dependent industries. Using data for 28 industries in 14 countries with dual banking systems, we find that the absolute and relative size of Islamic banking do have a positive impact on industry growth. The results are robust to controlling for the quality of finance as well as for the degree of competition in the banking industry.
