This activity was attended by 300 finalists from various backgrounds to be the winner in 3 categories, namely Scopus researchers, intermediate researchers, and young researchers with a total prize of IDR 180 million.
Ahmad Maulin Naufa conducted the research entitled “Does Net Stable Funding Ratio Impact on Islamic Bank Performance and Risk? Evidence from Around the World” with FEB UGM lecturer, Bowo Setiyono, M.Com., Ph.D. This study aims to examine whether liquidity as measured by the Net Stable Funding Ratio (NSFR) has an impact on the performance and risk of Islamic banks. Using panel data from 127 countries over the 2007-2018 period, this study shows that NSFR reduces performance but increases risk. In general, the NSFR is likely to have a negative impact on Islamic banks around the world in the form of reduced performance and increased risk.
Congratulations for the achievement, this opportunity hopefully will develop Islamic economics research. (RP)
