It was based on noble vision and objective of Islamic banking base on profit and loses sharing principle. The foundation of Islamic banking theory that they proposed was based on mudaraba and musharakah contracts as mechanism to operate Islamic banking system. “The early contributions on the theory of Islamic banking were only discussed as part of the subject in Islamic economic system. For example, the book by Qureshi on Islam and the Theory of Interest (Qureshi (l946)) which looked upon banking as a social service that should be sponsored by the government like other public institutions such as public health and education.2 His view was based on the point that the bank could neither pay any interest to account holders nor charge any interest on loans advanced. He also suggests the possibility for both Islamic banks and entrepreneur to create a partnership. No mention was made of profit-sharing.” Other economists were come up with different ideas at earlier stages such “the principle of mudarabah was appealed systematically by Uzair (l955).

Equity Funds

...What Does Equity Fund Mean? A mutual fund that invests principally in stocks. It can be actively or passively (index fund) managed. Also known as a "stock fund". [pic] Investopedia explains Equity Fund Stock mutual funds are principally categorized according to company size, the investment style of the holdings in the portfolio and geography:   Size is determined by a company's market capitalization, while the investment style, reflected in the fund's stock holdings, is also used to categorize equity mutual funds. Stock funds are also categorized by whether they are domestic (U.S.) or international. These can be broad market, regional or single-country funds.   There are so-called "specialty" stock funds that target business sectors such as healthcare, commodities and real estate.   The basic feature of unit trust investment is a form of collective investment that allows investors with similar investment objectives to pool their saving, and invested in a portfolio of securities managed by investment professional.

Unit Trust

...MARKET EFFICIENCY AND THE PERSISTENCE OF UNIT TRUST PERFORMANCE IN MALAYSIA CHAPTER 1 1.1 Introduction According to M.Rhodes, Research paper no. 2002 -2006, their offerings on the price many choose to highlight their past performance, implicitly as an indicator of future returns. The existence of persistence in performance is indicative of market Inefficiencies which some, but not all, fund managers are able to exploit. In an extension to the current literature the paper tests the proposition that changes to infrastructure, insomuch as they might affect market efficiency, affect the persistence of performance. Evidence is also presented on whether excess returns are the result of better skill or information for some managers or the existence of a momentum effect in stock returns. When picking a fund an investor faces a bewildering yet important choice from amongst several hundred product offerings and there is a considerable degree of price dispersion. Studies of Malaysia funds have relied on the assumption that conditions determining market efficiency, or the ability of fund managers to exploit inefficiencies, do not change significantly during the period examined. According to this research paper (2002-6), the unit trust industry in Malaysia can be considered relatively young. The first unit trust, Malaysia Investment Fund was launched in Dec. 2, 1966 by Asia Unit Trusts Be&ad. However, the industry can be expected to take off in the years ahead in light of......
