Basel II and Regulatory Framework for Islamic Banks

Basel II and Regulatory Framework for Islamic Banks
M. Kabir Hassan, University of New Orleans
Mehmet F. Dicle, University of New Orleans

"Even though Islamic banks offer profit and loss sharing accounts and therefore expose limited risk of insolvency, systemic risks still exist and deserve much attention."
"Basel II introduces a new approach to evaluating credit risk. Although the scope of Basel II does not include Islamic banks, the new models of credit risk rating introduce compatibility for Islamic banks."
