The global financial crisis showed us that there is a need for appropriate identification and evaluation of implicit liquidity trading risks in investment portfolios. It is undeniable that many of the financial institution collapses, both in developed and emerging markets, as well as the subsequent financial turbulence, were, to a certain extent, caused by the impact of liquidity trading risk on structured stocks portfolios. Liquidity trading risk increases due to the incapability of financial institutions to liquidate their shares at a fair price during the settlement period. In the chapter “Liquidity risk management in emerging and Islamic markets” that I published as part of the Handbook of Empirical Research on Islam and Economic Life (Edward Elgar, 2017), edited by the renowned scholar Prof. M. Kabir Hassan, University of New Orleans, I empirically develop and test a strategy of measurement and exposure control of market/liquidity risks of investment portfolios that include illiquid capital shares in critical circumstances, proposing that there be a strategy for the establishment of maximum risk limits.
