Determinants of compliance with AAOIFI standards by Islamic banks
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Methodology: Our sample consists of 43 IBs across 8 countries. We use ordinary least squares regression analyses to examine the impact of Bank-specific characteristics and corporate governance mechanisms concerned with Board of Directors (BOD) and Sharia Supervisory Board (SSB) on levels of compliance with AAOIFI standards.
Findings: We find that the average compliance level based on AAOIFI standards concerning the Sharia Supervisory Board Report (SSBR) is 68%; corporate social responsibility report (CSRR) is 27% and presentation of financial statements (FS) is 73%. The aggregate disclosure based on the 3 indices is 56%. The analysis also shows that size, existing Sharia auditing department, age, and corporate governance of SSB are the main determinants of compliance levels.
Originality: he determinants of compliance with AAOIFI standards for IBs around the world not been explored before and, therefore, this paper is the first of its kind to this issue.
