Financial Distress–Detection Model for Islamic Banks

H. Nurul Husna and R. Abdul Rahman
Abstract—Banks that are experiencing financial distress would also experience distress to influence the stakeholders about their performance. Thus, in order to gain the stakeholders’ confidence, these banks tend to execute False Financial Statements (FFS) in their reporting. With the absence of the FFS, the users might act in contrast with the companies’ goal. Literature has established that at any time Islamic Banks (IBs) have relatively more liquidity and are less risky when compared to Conventional Banks (CBs). However, it does not guarantee that IBs will not face a financial distress. To rectify this situation, this paper will discuss the “financial distress-detection model” specifically for IBs as an early FFS prevention method.

Index Terms—Financial distress, false financial statements, Islamic Banks, financial criminology.
