  14. 14. History and Development of the (Malaysian) Islamic Banking System 06/02/09 2006 (C) Abdullaah
  15. 15. 06/02/09 2006 (C) Abdullaah The Development of Malaysian Islamic Banking 1983 Enactment of: (1) Islamic Banking Act 1983 (2) Government Investment Act 1983 (now replaced with Government Investment Issues - GIIs) July 1983 The establishment of Bank Islam Malaysia Berhad (BIMB) as the first Islamic bank in Malaysia Jan 1992 BIMB was listed on the main board of the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange with 80 branches and 1,200 employees throughout the country.
  16. 16. Dual Banking System 06/02/09 2006 (C) Abdullaah Dual Banking System VISION STATEMENT IN 1990 To create a comprehensive Islamic financial system side-by-side with the conventional financial system. 1990 BNM Governor outlined BNM’s vision to create a comprehensive financial system side-by-side with conventional financial system – was further refined to reflect profound changes in the banking system
  17. 17. Dual Banking System 06/02/09 2006 (C) Abdullaah BNM decided to allow the existing banking institutions to offer Islamic banking services using their existing infrastructure and branches. 4 March 1993 BNM introduced a scheme known as &quot;Skim Perbankan Tanpa Faedah“/ SPTF on a pilot basis involving 3 banks. July 1993 Following the successful implementation of the pilot-run, BNM opened the scheme to the commercial banks, finance companies, and merchant banks subject to specific guidelines.
  18. 18. 06/02/09 2006 (C) Abdullaah Dual Banking System 4 Jan 1994 To link the institutions and the instruments, the Islamic Interbank Money Market (IIMM) was introduced. Oct 1996 BNM issued a model financial statement for the banking institutions participating in the SPI requiring the banks to disclose the Islamic banking operations (balance sheet and profit and loss account) as an additional item under the Notes to the Accounts. 1998 As part of the overall review on Islamic banking, the usage of the term SPTF was revisited and it was found that the term did not portray the right appearance with respect to the Islamic banking operations undertaken by the banks.
  19. 19. Dual Banking System 06/02/09 2006 (C) Abdullaah 1 Dec 1998 Thus, BNM replaced the SPTF with SPI/IBS (Skim Perbankan Islam/Islamic Banking Scheme). 1998 <ul><li>BNM also observed that the IB operations of the SPI was regarded as low hierarchy business, being manned by middle-level management, while the IBU was given limited functions to perform its duties and responsibilities effectively. The existing organisation structure, scope, and responsibilities of the IBU was reviewed and enhanced further by introducing a new framework as follows: </li></ul><ul><li>IBU was up-graded to an Islamic Banking Division (IBD): one-stop centre for all IB operations such as retail, commercial, corporate, and trade/international bankings, treasury operations, corporate planning, product development, and etc. </li></ul>
  20. 20. Dual Banking System 06/02/09 2006 (C) Abdullaah 2 Jan 1999 <ul><li>IBD is required to prepare a strategic plan. </li></ul><ul><li>IBD is expected to have a constructive relationship with other departments/division and should be provided with the necessary support from the departments/divisions in ensuring smooth implementation of IB operations. </li></ul><ul><li>IBD should be proficient in applying accounting standards (including IB accounting standards), legal and regulatory requirements, directives and guidelines issued by BNM or other relevant banking associations. </li></ul><ul><li>IBD as a division operates like “a bank within a bank”. </li></ul><ul><li>IBD shall be headed by a Muslim senior management officer… of the bank, at least the level of the Assistant General Manager (AGM). The position of the AGM should be equivalent to the status of other key functional heads to enable him to deal effectively with his peers and superiors. Importantly, the AGM should be functionally responsible to the Chief Executive Officer </li></ul>
  21. 21. Dual Banking System 06/02/09 2006 (C) Abdullaah 1 Jan 2001 (CEO). Initially, the AGM is allowed to carry out banking duties and responsibilities other than Islamic banking during an interim period of 2 years (1999-2000). Beginning 1 January 2001, the AGM shall perform his duties and responsibilities with regard to Islamic banking on full-time basis. May 2003 <ul><li>Islamic Banking System: </li></ul><ul><li>Total assets: RM73.4 billion; Deposits: RM55.2 billion; Financing: RM41.3 billion. </li></ul><ul><li>Institutions offering IB: 2 Islamic banks, 13 commercial banks, 9 finance companies, 4 merchant banks, and 7 discount houses. </li></ul><ul><li>2,065 Islamic banking counters and 138 banking outlets. </li></ul>
