Finance-Growth Nexus and Dual-Banking Systems: Relative Importance of Islamic Banks

Abstract : This paper investigates the relative importance of Islamic banks, alongside their conventional counterparts, in relation tobanking and financial development and economic welfare. Using a sample of 22 Muslim countries, with dual-banking systems, during the period 1999–2011, this paper reports some significant positive relationship between the market share of Islamic banks and the development of financial intermediation, financial deepening and economic welfare, particularly in low income or predominantly Muslim countries,and countries with a comparatively higher uncertainty avoidance index. Additionally, the results reveal thata greater market share of Islamic banks is associated with higherefficiency of conventional banks.
