Term Structure of Profit Rates of Sukuk

MATLAB Stochastic Simulation

Author(s): Adesina-Uthman Ganiyat

Book Description

This book explores several non-traditional and under-researched fields in Islamic finance through its investigations into how the newly-emergent financial instrument Sukuk behaves in the broader field of finite-period financing and pricing in the market place. It provides readers with didactic information on the fundamental theories of term structure and in-depth information on this nascent financial instrument in the Islamic capital market. The book employs one and two-factor models of term structure in order to analyse sovereign and corporate Sukuk bonds from the world’s leading Islamic economy, Malaysia. For the purposes of the study, the book establishes “profit rate yield curves” in the tradition of the conventional bond yield curve in order to define different risk classes of Sukuk. The dynamics of term structure of profit rates are captured with the inclusion of volatility as a factor in one of the models. The book provides informative case studies for interested students and researchers in the field of financial economics and mathematical finance. It also provides examples that will serve to simplify future research in term structure analysis and reduce its computational inefficiency.
