Purpose - This study aims to analyze the effect of intellectual capital, independent directors, academic directors, and sharia supervisory boards on the financial performance of Islamic banks. The selection of samples observation based on the database of Best Islamic Financial Institutions Award, includes Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Brunei Darussalam, Egypt, Indonesia, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, Maroko, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, and Uni Emirate Arab. Methodology - This study uses a sample of 20 Islamic banks in several countries which received the "Best Islamic Financial Institutions Award 2018" by Global Finance Magazine and has published financial reports for the period of 2013-2017. This study adopted panel regression analysis and utilized the Random Effect Model.Findings - The results of the study prove that intellectual capital has a positive effect on financial performance. While independent directors, academic directors, and the Sharia Supervisory Board (SSB) have no effect on the financial performance of Islamic banking companies. These results indicate that intellectual capital is a force for Islamic banking to increase company value through financial performance. While the factors related to corporate governance tend to reduce performance due to several limitations for management in carrying out its operational activities.Research limitations – this study has a limitation in using Islamic banking data from various countries with backgrounds that are certainly different from one another which might be bias. Practical implications – This study suggest that management needs to allocate its resources to provide guidance and development of human resources through regular training in the field of fiqh muamalah, contemporary Islamic banking products and services, effective business communication, as well as extensive market knowledge to anticipate the competition in ways that are in accordance with the principles of sharia.Originality – This research fills a research gap in investigating the nexus of intellectual capital and corporate governance mechanism on Islamic banking performance which has not been discussed in previous papers, particularly using Islamic banking in several countries that are committed to develop the Islamic financial industry.

Purpose – This study empirically analyzes the effect of the financing diversification with some control variables including both bank-specific variables such as bank's size, CAR, efficiency and the macroeconomic variables such as the inflation and exchange rate, on the Islamic bank's non-performing financing (NPF).Methodology – The aggregate Islamic bank data encompassing Islamic commercial banks and Islamic business units are used. The Autoregressive Distributed Lag Model (ARDL) is employed using the monthly data covering January 2011 to December 2019.Findings – The cointegration test indicates that the long-run relationship among variables being studied exists. Our results document that higher concentrated financing generates high NPF. Higher asset significantly contributes to reducing NPF. In addition, higher operating efficiency can reduce NPF. The instability of the exchange rate also generates the high NPF.Research limitations – This study employs aggregate data but applying them may conceal for individual Islamic bank.Practical implications – Our results suggest that Islamic banks must lessen the high concentrated financing by optimizing both PLS and non-PLS contracts to reduce Islamic banks' financing risk.Originality – Our study includes financing diversification to examine Islamic bank's financing risk. The existing empirical studies, to the best of our knowledge, have not addressed the impact of financing diversification on financing risk.

Purpose – This study aims to assess the efficiency and stability of Indonesia Islamic Commercial Banks, and then the results are used as a projection in the Covid-19 period. It uses the sample from 14 Islamic Commercial Banks in Indonesia and its quarterly data from 2017 to 2020.Methodology – The DEA method analyses VRS and CRS scale using output orientation. The Panel ARDL also uses two models from the specifications in DEA, with the inputs as independent variables and the outputs as dependent variables.Findings – The result of DEA is visualized in four quadrants from each CRS and VRS model. Respectively in each model, 1 and 5 banks are highly efficient and stable, 5 and 2 banks have high efficiency but low stability, 4 and 2 banks have low efficiency but high stability, 4 and 5 banks have low efficiency and stability. In the Panel ARDL, third party fund, operational expenses, and total financing have significant and stable long-run effect in both models. In the short-run, only operational expenses significantly affect operational earnings, whereas only total financing significantly affects total assets.Practical implications – Banks may use strategies such as absorbing workforces as marketing representatives, utilizing cooperative agreements, crowdfunding, improving banking technology, creating provisions on expected credit loss, and deferring profit.Research limitations – The limitation of this study is the small sample size because only 14 Islamic commercial banks are used as the sample, without considering the Islamic business units of the conventional banks so the predictive strength of the result only constrained in the Islamic commercial banks.Originality – The study uses two different methods in assessing Islamic Commercial Banks especially in the Covid-19 period, hence adding insights on Islamic Commercial Banks in the pandemic period and further contributes to the Islamic banking field of study.

Purpose – Albeit Islamic banks are often considered more stable than conventional banks, empirical evidence to support the stability view is relatively scanty. This study, therefore, mainly aims to investigate whether Islamic banks are more stable than conventional banks in Indonesia. To enrich and support the analysis, it will also compare the factors influencing the stability of Islamic banks and conventional banks in the country.Methodology – This paper employs a dynamic panel data model using the system-GMM (General Method of Moment) estimator. The data used are quarterly data from 83 conventional banks and 11 Islamic banks in Indonesia during September 2015-June 2019 period. Findings – The study did not find any significant difference in the stability of conventional and Islamic banks. This result is presumably influenced by the small size and small market share of Islamic banks, as well as many similarities between the two types of banking systems. Furthermore, the stability of the conventional bank in Indonesia is more influenced by macroeconomic factors including interest rate, exchange rate and financial inclusions, meanwhile the stability of Islamic banks is more influenced by the banks’ specific factors such as financing growth, efficiency and risk management factors.Research limitations – The data used in the study is limited to the period from September 2015 to June 2019. The variables utilized are also limited to those taken from publicly available financial statements.Originality – This paper provides additional empirical evidence regarding Islamic banking stability in Indonesia by using the latest data. While theoretically Islamic banks are expected to be more stable than conventional banks, this study did not find strong support for the case of Indonesia during the period of observation.

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to determine the factors influencing Malaysian consumer toward intention to purchase Takaful scheme for mental health disorders.Design/methodology – This paper adopts a quantitative approach by using an extended Theory of Reasoned Action (TRA) model. A pilot study with the total of 60 questionnaires were obtained from online survey to examine the significance relationship using multiple regression analysis.Findings – The result from this study portrays that subjective norm are strong predictors of a Malaysian consumer intention to purchase Takaful scheme for mental health disorders. Moreover, factors such as awareness, perception and attitude have positive and significant impacts on consumer intention to purchase takaful scheme for mental health disorders in Malaysia.Research limitation – There are some constraints. First, it focuses only on the actions of Malaysian consumers against a takaful scheme for mental health disorders; thus, the findings cannot be generalized to other takaful schemes. Therefore, more studies in other takaful settings, such as general takaful, need to begin. Second, this study considered only four factors were awareness, perception, attitude and subjective norm, and the factors selected might not cover all the factors which may have an effect on Malaysia's intentions toward takaful mental health disorders scheme.Originality - This study not only helps takaful operators design, develop and promote better approved takaful products and services, but also offers a new insight into how these products and services can be marketed to these particular consumers. Previous empirical studies that employed TRA focused on various types of variables, such as attitude and subjective norm, especially in the financial service environment. This research thus adds to the body of information by analysing the relative value of the goal affecting it.

Purpose­­­ – This study aims to perform the short-term and long-term relationships between net asset value of Islamic mutual funds within macroeconomic variables, to analyze responses towards the economic shock, and to analyze the composition of the net asset value of Islamic mutual funds within selected macroeconomic variables.Methodology – Monthly data over the 2015-2019 period were analyzed using the Vector Error Correction Model (VECM), impulse response test, and variance decomposition test.Findings – The results show that inflation, money supply, and gross domestic products had a positive and significant effect on the net asset value of Islamic mutual funds, on the other hand, the rupiah exchange rate had a negative thus insignificant effect on the net asset value of Islamic mutual funds.Research limitation/implication – The main limitation of this research is the lack of a variable that represents the Islamicity index, which can differentiate the driven factors of FDI in Muslim and non-Muslim organization countries.Practical implication – This study suggests that the society and the government should collaborate to maintain the stability of the rupiah exchange rate by buying domestic products, strengthening the real sector.Originality – Here we provide an update data of macroeconomics variables dynamics (e.g. GDP, inflation, exchange rate, and money supply) and its implication to Islamic mutual funds – i.e. net asset value over 2015-2019. We used a novel timeseries analytical approach (VECM) to estimate the magnitude of macroeconomics effects to Islamic mutual funds in Indonesia.
