AT1 capital instruments under Basel III: A Shariah Viewpoint
What is it about?
This research aims to compare the regulatory capital instruments for Islamic banking institutions (IBIs) ─ in particular the qualifying AT1 capital instruments ─ as defined by Basel III, Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) and IFSB-15 (issued by the Islamic Financial Services Board). Principally, the research examines the Shariah issues, especially related to subordination, arising in equity-based contracts when used for structuring AT1 capital instruments.
Why is it important?
It is important to determine the most appropriate Shariah-compliant contract that would be suitable for structuring AT1 capital instruments for Islamic banking institutions. The study is an important reference point to Islamic banks when structuring AT1 capital instruments.
