ABSTRACT OF PAPER
 
Title of Paper:
The influence of the Sharia Supervisory Board on bank risk-taking: Evidence of Islamic banks in GCC countries
 
Paper Proposal Text :
This study examines how Sharia Supervisory Board’s structure and other corporate governance variables influence the risk-taking for a sample of 29 Islamic banks from five countries in Arab Gulf region over the period 2010-2014. Using content analysis and random-effect GLS technique, we find that two characteristics of SSB, cross member and knowledge in accounting and finance, negatively affect bank risk. In contrast, SSB size positively affects bank risk-taking, which suggests that SSB finds difficulties to undertake a supervisory role. Furthermore, our results show a negative association between the proportion of outside directors and risk, while, no relation was found for board size and board risk committee. Finally, as of the effect of bank specific and economic indicators, we identified four variables that were associated with bank risk, namely size, leverage, diversification and GDP per capita.
