This book examines whether Islamic banks perform better than their conventional counterparts in times of financial crisis, as well as the extent to which systems for managing risk have to be adapted for Islamic financial institutions given the unique features of their assets and liabilities and the need for Sharī’ah compliance. It considers the challenges faced by Islamic financial institutions in an international system that requires banks under Basel III to have more capital and liquidity to cope with future shocks. Aside from risk management and risk mitigation, the book discusses governance issues and their implications for institutional stability and sustainability.

Keywords:   financial crisis, Islamic banks, Islamic financial institutions, Sharī’ah, capital, liquidity, risk management, governance, institutional stability, sustainability
