  • Future Market
    • Rosly (2005)- suggests that the future of an Islamic equity market will depend on the greater participation of Islamic bond issues and bank equity financing so that the capital structure has zero interest-bearing debt content.
    • Companies looking for capital should be given incentives to use equity rather than interest-bearing bonds. This can be done by treating dividend payouts as a tax-deductible expense.
  • Future Market
    • An Islamic financial system requires several vital elements to qualify as a viable system, i.e.:-
    • -A large number of players
    • -A broad variety of instruments and
    • -An Islamic Financial legal act or jurisdictions
    • -A sufficient Islamic money and capital market activities
    • -A support from the government
    • An Islamic financial system must also reflect the socio-economic values in Islam, and must be Islamic in both substance and form.
