How Islamic Finance Works
 
03:58
This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com Dubai's recent debt problems have brought attention to the growth of Islamic finance. A government-owned group of companies, Dubai World, has been seeking to restructure twenty-six billion dollars of debt. About six billion of it is in Islamic bonds, including a three and a half billion dollar bond set for repayment in December. The biggest difference between Western and Islamic finance involves beliefs about charging interest on borrowed money. In Islam, the basic idea is that you should not make money from money itself. Instead of interest, lenders charge fees. Ghiyath Nakshbendi at American University in Washington is an expert on Islamic financing. He says: "The bank will estimate its costs based on its fixed costs, variable costs, the cost of their employees, the rent and so on and so forth. And from that they estimate how much they are going to charge. But he points out that this system can make Islamic financing costly. The costs of the system are shared by the borrowers. The fewer the borrowers, the more each has to pay. In many cases, Islamic financing requires the lender and borrower to share profits and losses. Ghiyath Nakshbendi explains what that means with Islamic bonds, called sukuk. He says the bondholders are buying a share of a business or property. If business is good, then they could get back more than they expected. But if it fails, then there is no guarantee of repayment. Islamic bonds can be structured in different ways, but a major idea is shared profit and loss. Professor Nakshbendi says Islamic lending practices are also supposed to be socially responsible. In world banking, the total share of Islamic finance is less than one percent. But it is growing at a rate of fifteen to twenty percent a year. There is growing interest in Islamic banking in the West. London is becoming a center of Islamic finance. And France recently proposed changes in finance laws to protect Islamic bondholders. Estimates differ, but as much as one and a half trillion dollars may be managed under Islamic rules. In two thousand eight, the International Monetary Fund studied the financial security of Islamic banks. It found that their lack of complex products like futures and derivatives limits the ability to spread risk. And that's the VOA Special English Economics Report.

How Islamic Home Finance Works
 
08:26
http://www.ethicainstitute.com In 2009 Nick lost his job, his house, and all the money he had spent paying off his mortgage. The property bubble that triggered the global financial meltdown could not have happened if the properties had been financed Islamically. Why? Because a conventional bank merely lends out cash. Legally, it can keep lending this cash over and over. Well above its actual cash reserves. An Islamic bank, on the other hand, has to take direct ownership of an actual asset. Whether for a longer period in a lease or partnership, or a shorter period in a sale or trade, Islamic finance always limits the institution to an actual asset. The next time anyone wonders whether Islamic banking is just dressed up conventional banking, ask them to show you a single major consumer bank that co-owns actual properties with their customers. Of course, there's no excuse for Islamic banks that are Islamic in name only. But if the transaction complies with internationally recognized standards like AAOIFI, for instance, then there's no reason for it to have the many side effects associated with interest-based banking. To provide just one example of how Islamic banks get directly involved in asset purchases, let's look at how a Diminishing Musharakah works. The word Musharakah refers to a partnership in Islamic finance. And it's called a Diminishing Musharakah because the banks equity keeps decreasing throughout the tenure of the financing, while the client's ownership keeps increasing through a series of equity purchases. Eventually, the client becomes the sole owner. If Nick had lost his job, with a Diminishing Musharakah, at the very least, he would still have an equity stake in an actual property that he could monetize. Pay close attention to this example because this is something you may want to suggest to your own local bank. There's no reason why they can't do it. We've kept all the numbers and calculations very simple and straightforward for illustration purposes. At no time does the homebuyer pay any interest. And, certainly, at no time does any payment compound. The homebuyer just pays for two things: the house, in small payments, little by little. And the rent, for the portion of the house he doesn't yet own. This simple structure is something that just about any conventional bank can offer today. It takes a leap of faith for banks accustomed to all-cash interest-based lending to suddenly become direct stakeholders in property. But as the growth of Islamic banking shows, these concerns are misplaced. Call it Islamic finance, ethical finance, or conventional finance, when a bank takes real ownership of an asset, economies don't fall apart like a house of cards.

http://www.ethicainstitute.com/Trainingmodules.aspx You've heard of joint-stock companies. Now learn about the Islamic variation. In this video we look at Musharakah, the Islamic business partnership where partners pool together capital, expertise or goodwill to conduct business or trade. We look at the basic features of a Musharakah and its types, their mode of operation, duration and the various forms of capital contribution. Ethica's CIFE is rigorously prepared by a team of bankers and scholars. MBAs, on the other hand, are prepared by professors. When you get a CIFE you enter the small circle of distinguished professionals who are ready for the practical side of Islamic finance, not just the theoretical side. And our accelerated program gets you there in just 4 months, not 2 years.

Career Options In Islamic Banking And Finance - Part 1

Full Webinar available at www.EthicaInstitute.com Atif: Webinar career options in Islamic finance. I'm very excited to be here, we're normally accustomed to conducting face-to-face training sessions but it's gratifying to see that we literally are covering the entire globe this evening. I see names all the way from Calgary, Canada in the West where it's early morning to Australia where its late night, so welcome everyone. We have people from Dubai, Finland, U.K, Nigeria, so it's a really healthy mix and Islamic finance is for everyone, so we'll try to make sure that all the questions get answered and that we keep all of our answers as relevant as possible to this global audience. I'm also joined by Yusuf Jha who is the Shariah controller of a major GCC Islamic bank, he'll also be joining us. Welcome Yusuf. Yusuf: Asaalamu alaykum, thank you for having me here. It's a pleasure to be here, hopefully I can benefit the listeners in terms of the questions they may have. Atif: So we'll begin right away. We're going to try to keep the webinar to less than 90 minutes, we'll have an introductory session which will shortly be followed by the questions that we've received in advance by email and then live questions and for those of you who stick around to the end we will also give people an opportunity to win various things including discounts, as well as other stuff. So we'll begin right away, the webinar is "Career options in Islamic finance" and as most of you know, despite the global financial crisis, Islamic finance has remained quite resilient through much of the crisis. It has not been completely insulated because obviously even many Shariah-compliant transactions, however compliant they are, are still going to be affected by the markets around that industry. So despite that Islamic banks continue to thrive. There is expansion going on in a number of countries and over 500 Islamic banks, whether stand alone or subsidiaries are all over the world and central banks and countries from as far flung regions as Japan, Canada where we were recently, and Australia have stated their intention to expand with Islamic finance services. The industry is growing annually at a rate of over 20% which is actually a number that we hear a lot but what is more relevant is that in some Islamic finance industries that are relatively mature like, Malaysia, Pakistan, parts of the GCC, it is more stable and growing while in other places where it's just being introduced the rate of growth is much, much higher. The S&P believes that the potential for the market of Islamic financial services is close to $4 trillion and like I mentioned there is a very positive interest from Muslim and non-Muslim countries around the world with many of them starting with capital markets transactions from the get go and then moving on to retail and corporate style products as they progress. So it's good to see that regulatory, legislative and political changes in these countries are accommodating Islamic finance. According to AT Kearney over 30,000 new Islamic banking jobs will have to be filled in the Gulf alone. And there are actually bigger markets than the Gulf, obviously the UK, Europe, North America, these are huge markets where Islamic finance remains largely untapped. There has been progress in places like UK, Europe, but again, it's still the tip of the iceberg. One of the best signs that there is a critical mass of Islamic financial institutions and Islamic finance practitioners is AAOIFI. AAOIFI stands for the Accounting and Auditing Organization of Islamic Financial Institutions and it is the leading standard setting body in the industry. It is essentially an effort to bring the top scholars from around the world from various regions together several times a year to formulate standards for various products and it is widely held to be the leading standard setting body and they've put out a book called AAOIFI Shariah Standards, which I recommend to all of you to try to get a hold of.
