Islamic Capital Market Series

The steady development of the Islamic capital market (ICM) across the globe in recent years has positioned it as a significant counterpart to the conventional capital market. Malaysia has been at the forefront of global initiatives to establish a feasible ICM, with products that are attractive to investors and issuers worldwide. As the need for global funding continues to grow, ICM products have attracted the interest of a vast segment of market participants, not just Muslims concerned that market transactions are carried out in ways that comply with Islamic principles.
In line with the Securities Commission Malaysia’s (SC) mission “to promote and maintain fair, efficient, secure and transparent securities and futures markets and to facilitate the orderly development of an innovative and competitive capital market”, the SC’s Islamic Capital Market Series published by Sweet & Maxwell Asia aims to bring about a greater awareness and understanding of ICM issues, and to address the increasing interest of market participants and policy makers in the potential and opportunities presented by the ICM.
Sukuk are certificates of ownership of a pool of underlying assets, issued with the aim of using mobilized funds for developing new or existing projects, or financing business activities. They have played a significant role in firmly entrenching Islamic finance within the realm of Islamic capital markets. With the rising popularity of sukuk worldwide, the challenge before the Islamic finance industry, particularly those involved in sukuk, is to develop and build financial solutions on a solid Shariah foundation, taking the best of what is correct from existing sources, developing a home-grown paradigm and rejecting what is inappropriate and prohibited.
Sukuk – the first title in the Securities Commission Malaysia’s (SC) Islamic Capital Market Series – presents the insights of a panel of expert authors on various sukuk structures and contracts based on Shariah principles, such as ijarah, salam, istisna`, musharakah, mudharabah and wakalah. It aims to give readers a clear understanding and guidance on fiqh in the Islamic capital market (ICM), its practical workings from both the perspective of instruments and players, as well as to delve into opportunities available in the ICM. This presentation is enhanced by frequent references to the requirements of the global regulatory framework driven by international bodies like the Accounting and Auditing Organization for Islamic Financial Institutions and the Islamic Financial Services Board, and the experts’ views on how sukuk have been fashioned for jurisdictions like Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, Bahrain, London and New York, comparing and contrasting the basic ground rules in these jurisdictions. The reader will also benefit from the coverage given to the innovative varieties of sukuk that are penetrating markets never before imagined, including exotic forms attached with derivatives.
