Supervisor: Mr.Valliappan Kasi.
This research paper’s main aim is to find out which banking system,(Islamic or conventional) performed better overall.11 different ratios were used and they were grouped into 4 different categories which are Profitability,Liquidity,Risk and solvency,and Efficiency. 5 banks from Islamic will be compared with another 5 banks from conventional banking for a period of 5 years that is from years 2006 to 2010. To see whether there is a difference in the performance of the two banking systems which are Islamic and conventional banks in Malaysia, equality of mean test is done. The assumption used here is that the performance ratios calculated are normally distributed. The null hypothesis of the equality of mean of the conventional banks and Islamic banks is tested against not-equality of mean. Student’s t-test is then used to assess the statistical difference between the two types of the banks.Based on the results, it shows that the gap between the two different systems of banks are certainly closer now and it’s a big development for Islamic banks since they started in 1983.This results may not be that surprising considering various initiatives and effort taken by government to improve Islamic banking over the years.
