This title provides an integrated risk management framework for Islamic banks. This guide shows students and professionals how to identify, measure and mitigate risk in Shari'ah-compliant banks. Covering the key areas - credit or default risk, liquidity risk, market risk, operational risk, Shari'ah risk and displaced commercial risk - it explains risk analysis and mitigation on both the contract and the overall bank level. Using financial statements from a simulated Islamic bank, Salem demonstrates how this integrated risk-management process would work in practice, and investigates how risk regulatory insights have implications for banking policy. Simulated financial statements include the balance sheet, income statement and profit distribution model. It provides a risk coding system that facilitates risk management and reporting systems. It includes a glossary of key Arabic terms and abbreviations for students and professionals who are not familiar with Islamic finance.

"Salem is successful in her effort to establish a framework for managing risk in IB and I can strongly recommend the book to students and practitioners of Islamic finance. The book is a very significant contribution to the field: the theoretical information, empirical data and useful charts in it make it well worth reading and re-reading." -- Ismail Cebeci, Journal of Islamic Studies
