/ Ibrahim Niankara / Hassan Ismail

This article Presents an extract of the fully consolidated data collected through the US Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) reports, FFIEC 009 and FFIEC 009a [1]. The data is provided here as a Panel of Quarterly claims covering the 2017 fiscal year from last quarter 2016, to third quarter 2017. Following U.S. generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), it contains financial claims reported by 68 US banking organizations (including US holding companies owned by foreign banks, but excludes US branches of foreign banks), on foreign counterparties distributed across 71 countries in six world regions. From the original raw claims data we generate and include in this shared data, six accounting measures of foreign country risks (including Cross-border risk ratio, Foreign Office risk ratio, Derivative risk ratio, Ratio of Public Sector Claims, Ratio of Banking Sector Claims, and Ratio of non-bank financial sector claims) previously used to study the relative contribution of public sector, banking sector, and non-bank financial sector claims in U.S. global banks' exposure to foreign counterparties' default risks in [2]. The present article also presents a brief descriptive analysis of the various measures and their inter-relationships in characterizing US global banks exposures to foreign counterparties risks.

The present study aims to measure and evaluate the liquidity, profitability and solvency of Islamic and commercial banks in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The study has used a sample of all fully-fledged Islamic banks and 14 commercial banks working in the UAE over the period of 2011-2014. Panel balanced data is fetched from different sources for Islamic banks and commercial banks in the UAE. Microsoft Excel, Eviews version 7 and SPSS version 22 have been used for the analysis of the data. The liquidity, profitability and solvency ratios of the UAE Islamic and commercial banks‟ are calculated and compared over the mentioned period. The results of the study revealed that there is a significant difference between Islamic banks and commercial banks of UAE in terms of Liquidity. The study found that Islamic banks have maintained sound liquidity ratios while profitability and capital adequacy ratios are good for commercial banks of UAE. The results also show that there is a significant difference in the profitability between Islamic and commercial banks of UAE. Further, there is no significant difference found in liquidity and solvency for Islamic and commercial banks of UAE. The results of stepwise regression analysis indicate that liquidity is a determinant variable in the profitability of Islamic banks while liquidity and capital adequacy are determinant variables in the profitability of commercial banks of UAE.
