2 What is International Islamic Financial Market (IIFM) ? IIFM is the international Islamic financial market’s organization focused on the Islamic Capital & Money Market (ICMM) segment of the Islamic Financial Services Industry (IFSI). Its primary focus lies in the standardization of Islamic financial products, documentation and related processes at the global level. IIFM was founded with the collective efforts of the Islamic Development Bank, Autoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam, Bank Indonesia, Central Bank of Bahrain, Central Bank of Sudan and the Labuan Financial Services Authority (Malaysia) as a neutral and non- profit organization. Besides the founding members, IIFM is supported by its permanent member State Bank of Pakistan as well as by a number of regional and international financial institutions and other market participants as its members. The main strength of IIFM is pooling of expertise from banks, legal, accounting and other market participants who work together under the guidance of Shari’ah scholars 1

21 Collateralization & Sukuk  IIFM Reference Paper on I’aadat Al Shira’a (Repo Alternative) and Collateralization published on 28 th July 2010  Purpose  The Reference Paper aims to provide general information on the concept, operational mechanism and uses of conventional repurchase agreements (known as Repo or Sale and Repurchase agreements) and explore the possibilities for I’aadat Al Shira’a (repurchase) as an alternative to Repo  The aim is to provide for the Islamic financial institutions, another tool to effectively manage its liquidity as well as to help it finance its inventory of Asset, Sukuk and equities 20

22 Collateralization Prospects in Islamic Finance Institutions may initiate this concept which will give similar results as those achieved by a repo. Moreover, this concept will allow Islamic financial institutions to raise cash to fund the inventory while providing the cash investor a return which is further comforted in form of collateral Further efforts are being initiated by IIFM and several bilateral trades between banks are being done to test the product 21 Collateralization & Sukuk

23 Collateralized Product – Utilization of Sukuk In order to make use of parties Sukuk portfolios and to initiate the process while further research and deliberation on finding an ideal ‘IS’ structure may continue, the working team is of the view that a collateralized structure is one of the options which perhaps can be initiated now given the industry’s urgent requirement for a workable liquidity management tool. The proposal is to make use of Sukuk, which are currently not utilized in a bank’s portfolio, through either a Murabaha or Wakalah arrangement. Since Murabaha is more developed and widely used, the working team is of the view that the following proposed structure may be initiated in various jurisdictions so that not only do funds remain within the Islamic system but the required legal procedures can be managed at the jurisdiction level (the suggestion is to seek required legal changes in OIC countries to facilitate the process). Sukuk collateralization through a Wakalah arrangement is another option which, if required, can be further developed by the IIFM working team if requested by the industry. 22 Collateralization & Sukuk

24 Issues for Consideration 1.Taking Security: For this structure to be practical, it would need to be possible to take security over the securities quickly, effectively and robustly. In addition it needs to be possible for Party A to re-hypothecate the securities over which Party B has granted security. 2.Securities used as security for the obligation to pay Deferred Purchase Price: It is presumed that the securities used as security will be limited to Shari’ah compliant securities. 3.Margin Maintenance: The margin maintenance methodology also needs to be resolved and again needs to be quick, effective and robust. Easiest form would be to add or return Sukuk depending on collateral level agreement Continued… 23 Collateralization & Sukuk

25 Issues for Consideration (Continued…) 4.Broker Credit Risk: The parties will be taking a credit risk on the commodity broker in respect of its obligations. However, this is similar to standard commodity Murabaha documentation. 5.Re-hypothecation: In conventional repo, the buyer has an ability to make use of the repo’d securities in its own business, which adds to the economic value of the repo to the buyer. How to replicate this in Shari’ah complaint way needs to be determined. Potentially Title Transfer Agreement may achieve the desired result. 6.Accounting Treatment: The applicable accounting treatment would need to be clarified. 24 Collateralization & Sukuk

26 IIFM may put together standard product guidelines and required documentation for Collateralized Murabaha where Islamic Custodian Bank or Clearing Company may provide the required services for local market. Based on findings and as recommended in the reference paper, institutions are using this structure. Recently ADIB and NBAD made an announcement on entering into Islamic repo using this structure. The standard documentation for this product will be: 1)Guidelines on Product & Document 2)Collateralized Murabaha Agreement 3)Pledge Agreement 4)“IS” Global Master Agreement 5)Collateral Management Document & Client Service Documents 25
