Abstract: This thesis examines the role that Shariah principles and compliance play in firm value and firm performance. The thesis comprises four essays which include: (a) Shariah compliance in real-estate investments in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) (b) leverage choice of Islamic and Shariah-compliant real-estate firms (c) the idiosyncratic risks of Shariah-compliant real-estate investment trusts, and (d) the corporate real-estate ownership of Shariah-compliant firms. Overall, this thesis highlights the effects of Shariah compliance to firm value and firm performance from a real-estate investment perspective. The first and second essays focus on the role of Shariah compliance in the Gulf Cooperation Council including an understanding of Shariah-compliant real estate investments and the leverage choice of Shariah-compliant real-estate firms; while the third and fourth essays investigate the effect of Shariah compliance on firm performance by examining the firm?s idiosyncratic risks and corporate real-estate ownership on firm returns.
