A Capital Adequacy Framework for Islamic Banks

A Capital Adequacy Framework for Islamic Banks: The Need to Reconcile Depositors’ Risk Aversion With Managers’ Risk Taking

Abstract: "This paper combines modern banking theory and principal-agent analysis to develop a framework for an optimal capital structure for Islamic banks. The proposed capital regulation includes a minimum risk-based equity capital cushion [as required under the Basel Accord], a prudent assets-liabilities [capital] structure [i.e. appropriate proportions of PLS- and non-PLS-based assets and liabilities] and a minimum ‘financial participation’ requirement."
