  3. Verses on Interest Qur ’anic I am seeking refuge in Allah from Shaitan, the outcast (the cursed one). In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. “Those who consume interest cannot stand (on the Day of Resurrection) except as one stands who is being beaten by Shaitan into insanity. That is because they say, ‘Trade is just like interest’ whereas Allah has permitted Trading and has forbidden (Riba) Usury. So whoever has received an admonition from his Lord and desists may have what is past, and his affair rests with Allah. But whoever returns to (dealing in interest) those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide eternally therein”. (Surah 2 Al-Bakara : 275) “O you who believe! Be afraid of Allah and give up what remains (due to you) from (Riba) Usury, if you are (really) believers. If you do not do it, then take a notice of war from Allah and His Massenger (Rasul)”. (Surah 2 Al-Bakara : 278-279) 5 Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited Annual Report 2018
  4. • “Jabir bin Abdullah (R) said that Rasul (Allah’s Messenger) (S) cursed the acceptor of They are all equal. (Sahih Muslim) • Abdullah Ibn Masud (R) has quoted a Hadith of Rasul (Allah’s Messenger) (S) as saying: Whenever adultery and usury become rampant in a community, it is inevitable that wrath of Allah will befall upon them. (Abu Yala) • Abu Huraira (R) has narrated that Rasul (Allah’s Messenger) (S) said: Allah as his unique right will not allow four categories of people to enter the heaven and also refrain them from taking taste of his bounties 1) Drunkard 2) Usury 3) Devourers of orphan’s wealth and 4) Disobedience of parents. (Mustadarake Hakim) • Abu Huraira (R) has narrated that Rasul (Allah’s Messenger) (S) said: you should protect yourself from 7(seven) destructive issues ‘what are those’? -asked his companions. He said those are 1) Join in worship others with Allah 2) Mesmerizing 3) Killing someone unlawfully 4) Usury 5) Devourers of orphan’s wealth 6) Flight from the battle field and 7) To charge against chaste women. (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Sahih Muslim and Sunan Abu Daud) • Samura Ibn Zundub (R) has narrated that Rasul (Allah’s Messenger) (S) said: I saw in a dream that two persons came to me and took me to a sacred place. Thereafter three of us proceeded to a river full to blood and saw that a man was swimming in the river and another was standing on the bank with huge rocks in front of him. When the swimmer approached the bank, the man standing on it hit the swimmer with the rocks so heavily that he receded to his original place. Whenever the swimmer tried to approach the bank of the river again, the standing person did the same as before. Rasul (Allah’s Messenger) (S) asked ‘who is this man in the river’ One of the angels said ‘He is a usurer’. (Sahih Al-Bukhari) Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited Annual Report 2018 6 Hadith on Interest (Riba) Usury and its payer, and the one who records it, and the witness; and he said
  5. Opinion of other Religions and Great Men on Interest • Interest has been banned in the two books of Hazrat Musa (A.), which are considered as the scriptures of Jews. The 22nd line of Exodus goes as saying, ‘If you lend money to a poor man, don’t become money lenders and don’t realize interest from him.’ • Similarly in 23rd line of ancient scripture of the Jews entitled “Deuteronomy” states, ‘You don’t lend money to your brother for interest -i.e interest on money, interest on foodstuff and interest on anything lent.’ • Hebrewism is known as Musaic or Jewism. Musaic laws or commands of Musa are the basis of Hebrewism. Interest was totally prohibited in Musaic law. This rule was exclusively practiced by the Jews. In this ideology, there are clear directions on interest as other aspects of economics. In Hinduism, usury business was restricted within the ‘Baithayas’. • One Jew couldn’t take interest by lending money from another. But, taking interest was in practice by lending money to the people of other religions. • Some writers quoted from the book, ‘Talmud’ that the Hebrew prophets forbade interest not only from Jews but from all. (Eric Roll, A history of Economic Thought: Page 48) • Interest was prohibited from the beginning of the Christianity to the advent of the Reform Movement and from the Church under pope in Rome to the division of other Churches, Christ said, ‘Lend hopping for nothing again.’ (Luke VI 35, Hanley: History of Economic Thought 1964, Page 101) 7 Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited Annual Report 2018

  15. Economic Impact Report Economic impact can be defined as any increase or decrease in productive potential of an economy . By analyzing the economic impact we can understand how a bank adds value to the society. Economic impacts can be broadly categorized as: i) Direct Impact ii) Indirect Impact Direct Impact Direct impacts are the immediate economic effects resulting from the banks financial transactions. Bank’s direct contribution to the economy resulted in the creation of employment opportunities, payment of tax to the government and maximization of shareholders wealth. Indirect Impact Indirect impacts are the spill over economic effects that occur through Bank’s normal course of operations. Banks generate indirect impact by addressing the deficiency of capital in the economy by mobilizing deposit and channelizing the same to prospective investors. Through catering financial services, the Bank helped distribute the wealth among all the stakeholders for example shareholders received dividend, depositors and investors got profit, employees received compensation and other benefits, the under privileged reaped benefits out of CSR while the government earned tax revenue. In 2018, total value added by AIBL was BDT 8,649.60 million as against BDT 9,430.52 million in 2017. Bank’s direct contribution to the economy was BDT 1,674.11 million in the form of corporate income tax.

Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited (AIBL) ended up being 5th which is exactly the same like 2017.

  30. Dear Shareholders , Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu. The Board of Directors of the Bank takes the privilege to welcome you all to the 24th Annual General Meeting and has the pleasure of placing before you the Annual Report and the financial statements comprising the Balance Sheet, Profit & Loss Account, Cash Flow Statement and Statement of Changes in Equity of the Bank along with the report of the Auditors and Shariah Supervisory Committee for the year ended 31 December 2018. Economy Analyses World Economy Outlook The International Monetary Fund has cut its forecast for world economic growth this year, citing heightened trade tensions and rising U.S. interest rates. The IMF said that it expects global growth this year of 3.5%, down from 3.7% in 2018 and from the 3.7% it had forecast for 2019 back in October. Unveiling its forecast at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, the fund left its prediction for U.S. growth this year unchanged at 2.5%. But it trimmed the growth outlook for the 19 countries that use the euro currency to 1.6% from 1.8%. Growth in emerging-market countries is forecast to slow to 4.5% from 4.6% in 2018. The IMF expects the Chinese economy the world’s second biggest to grow 6.2% this year, down from 6.6% in 2018 and slowest since 1990. The World Bank and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development have also downgraded their world growth forecasts. Rising trade tensions pose a major risk to the world economy. Under President Donald Trump the United States has imposed import taxes on steel, aluminum and hundreds of Chinese products, drawing retaliation from China and other U.S. trading partners. “Higher trade uncertainty will further dampen investment and disrupt global supply chains,” said IMF chief economist Gita Gopinath. Rising interest rates in the U.S. and elsewhere are also pinching emerging-market governments and companies that borrowed heavily when rates were ultra-low in the aftermath of the 2007-2009 Great Recession. As the debts roll over, those borrowers have to refinance at higher rates. A rising dollar is also making things harder for emergingmarket borrowers who took out loans denominated in the U.S. currency. But two things that are particularly concerning, the IMF says, are a potential “no deal “withdrawal of the U.K. from the EU and slower economic growth in China. Retaliatory tariffs between the U.S. and China already contributed to a decline in global economic growth last year, and the IMF says it’ll only get worse if the trade war continues. Bangladesh Economic Outlook Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) has estimated Bangladesh’s GDP growth at 7.86 per cent in FY18, which exceeds the official target of 7.40 per cent by 0.46 percentage point. The higher GDP growth in FY18, which also exceeds the previous year’s growth by 0.58 percentage point, occurred due to all-round expansion in i) agriculture, ii) manufacturing, iii) electricity, gas and water, iv) construction, and v) several services sub-sectors. The 7.86 per cent growth in Bangladesh GDP is no doubt impressive, when compared to many other developing countries, but still it remains below the country’s true potential. The high and steady economic growth experienced over the recent years has not resulted in the desired increase in employment generation and eradication of poverty and inequality. Inadequate infrastructure, lack of investor confidence in the economy, and shortage of power & energy are now the major impediments to the country’s development. These impediments must be removed to boost prospects of achieving accelerated economic growth. In terms of US Dollar, the value of GDP in current market prices increased by 9.77 per cent Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited Annual Report 2018 32 Board of All praise is to be the Almighty Allah, Lord of the Universe and blessings of Allah be upon the Prophet Mohammad (SM) and his descendants & companions Directors’ Report Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

Banking sector analysis After the independence, banking industry in Bangladesh started its journey with 6 nationalized commercialized banks, 2 State owned specialized banks and 3 Foreign Banks. In the 1980’s banking industry achieved significant expansion with the entrance of private banks. Now, banks in Bangladesh are primarily of two types: Scheduled Banks: The banks which get license to operate under Bank Company Act, 1991 (Amended up to 2013) are termed as Scheduled Banks. Non-Scheduled Banks: The banks which are established for special and definite objective and operate under the acts that are enacted for meeting up those objectives, are termed as Non-Scheduled Banks. These banks cannot perform all functions of scheduled banks. There are 57 scheduled banks in Bangladesh who operate under full control and supervision of Bangladesh Bank which is empowered to do so through Bangladesh Bank Order, 1972 and Bank Company Act, 1991. Scheduled Banks are classified into following types: State Owned Commercial Banks (SOCBs): There are 6 SOCBs which are fully or majorly owned by the Government of Bangladesh. There are now 4 non-scheduled banks in Bangladesh which are: • • • • Ansar VDP Unnayan Bank Karmashangosthan Bank ProbashiKollyan Bank Jubilee Bank A. Private Commercial Banks (PCBS): There are 39 private commercial banks which are majorly owned by the private entities. PCBs can be categorized into two groups: B. Conventional PCBS: 31 conventional PCBs are now operating in the industry. They perform the banking functions in conventional fashion i.e interest based operations. C.

All the losses will be contributed by the fund provider. In this scheme, Bank shall purchase cows, goats etc. on behalf of client under the limit of sanction amount. Clients shall responsible for daily maintenance of that animal as per terms and conditions. After a certain time, that animal will be sold in current market rate and then the profit shall be distributed as on previous agreement.

Risk Management Risk is generally defined by the adverse impact on the profitability of several distinct sources of uncertainty. It looks at financial exposures and its inherent risks to the business, and deeply believes profits are in part for successful risk taking in business. A bank must run its operations with two goals- to generate profits and to stay in business. Greater risk and poorly managed risk increase the danger that the bank may incur huge losses and be forced out of business. Risk Management is a tool used by banking institution in the name of good governance, risk mitigation and prudent practice. It focuses a lot on control processes, performance monitoring, collateral value, and decision making policies for credit, market and systemic risks. Risk Management’s main objectives are to identify and measuring the risks and advise mitigation there against. Banking operations are mainly exposed to: • Investment or default Risk (including concentration risk, country risk, and settlement risk) • Market risk (Including interest rate risk in the banking book, Forex risk, and equity price risk) • Liquidity risk • Operational risk • Other risks (residual risk, compliance risk, strategic risk, reputation risk etc.) AIBL has three lines of defense for identification, assessment, control and mitigation of risks. 1st line of defense: Day to Day Business and Operational Management units • Branches • Support Functions 51 Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited Annual Report 2018
  50. 2nd line of defense : Internal Control Framework (Policy & Methodology) • • • • use of its resources. Through internal control system, bank identifies its weaknesses and takes appropriate measures to overcome the same. ICC Risk Management Committee assesses and mitigates the risks related to compliance with regulatory requirements, set rules of the Bank, internal checking system, lapses, fraud, forgeries, misappropriation, defalcation, violations of the set rules etc. Zonal Office Different Risk Management Committees Risk Management Division and CRO Board Risk Management Committee 3rd line of defense: Independent Assurance • Internal Audit • Board Audit Committee • Supervision of Regulators In accordance with the direction of Bangladesh Bank, AIBL has established ‘Risk Management Division’ and possesses board’s approved risk management guidelines designed to ensure that risks are identified, monitored and reported. Risk Management Division exclusively manages 6 (six) core risks in line with core risk Management guidelines of Bangladesh Bank. AIBL formed All Risk Committee at Management level in addition to six separate Core Risk Management Committees to address basic risk management activities like identification, assessment, and mitigation of risks. Besides, Board Risk Management Committee oversights the overall risk management activities of the bank, risk appetite and performs their duties with utmost care to minimize the risk level. Regular meeting of all the committees are held on monthly/ quarterly basis. The major concerns of the 6 (six) Core Risks Management Committees are as under: 5. Central ComplianceCommittee: Money laundering risk is the risk of loss of reputation of the Bank. CCU looks after the money laundering and terrorist financing activities, STR (Suspicious Transaction Report), CTR (Cash Transaction Report), KYC (Know Your Customer) and TP (Transaction Profile) related compliances. The committee also supervises and monitors the entire transactional activities of the Bank including money laundering aspects involved with foreign exchange transactions. 6. Information & Communication Technology Risk Management Committee: ICT risks include hardware and software failure, human error, spam, viruses and malicious attacks, as well as natural disasters such as fires, cyclones or floods. This committee monitors and supervises the risks related to Data security, Physical security, Network security, Disaster recovery, Fraud, Forgery, System failure and Business continuity etc. 1. Investment Risk Management Committee : Operational risk: Investment risk arises from the potential that a bank’s borrower may fail to meet its obligations in accordance with agreed terms. IRMC deals with the activities of supervises and monitors Investment concentration, Internal investment risk grading, Corporate clients rating, Non performing investment, Residual risk against investment, Provision against classified investment, Investment mix, Asset quality etc. 2. Asset Liability Risk Management Committee (ALCO): Asset Liability Management ensures balanced fund mobilization and their deployment with respect to their maturity profile, cost, and yield as well as risk exposure. ALCO looks after the Asset-liability risk, Liquidity risk, Investment Deposit Ratio (IDR), Deposit mix, Investment mix, Gap analysis etc. under direct guidance of the Managing Director & CEO. Operational risk is the risk of loss or harm resulting from inadequate or failure of internal processes, people and systems or from external events. The policy for measuring and managing operational risks including internal control and compliance risk is approved by the Board taking into account relevant guidelines of Bangladesh Bank. As a part of continued surveillance, the Management Committee (MANCOM), All Risk Committee (ARC), Board Risk Management Committee regularly review different aspects of operational risks and suggest to formulate policies, tools and techniques for mitigation of operational risks. 3. Foreign Exchange Risk Management Committee: Foreign Exchange Risk Management in Banks has become inevitable. It oversees Foreign exchange risk, Treasury, Net open position, Import & Export business, Dealing room operations, Anti-money laundering aspects in foreign exchange transactions and remittance etc. 4. Internal Control & Compliance Risk Management Committee: The primary objective of internal control system in a bank is to help the bank perform better through the Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited Annual Report 2018 Managing other specific risks: Bangladesh Bank has issued six core risk guidelines and Risk Based Capital Adequacy (RBCA) Guidelines that provides concepts, methods and processes with regards to the respective risk areas. AIBL follows those guidelines and also reviews/updates them on regular basis and gets approval from the Board. Apart from these, there are some other specific risks that are covered by SRP Guidelines and RBCA Guidelines of Bangladesh Bank. Residual RiskResidual risk arises mainly from error in documentation and error in valuation. As institutions mitigate risks by way of collateral, the collaterals can pose additional risks (legal and documentation risks), which may deteriorate the impact of risk mitigation. AIBL have appropriate governing and control system, valuations procedures, internal regulations and responsible individuals assigned for the prudent handling of risks. 52
  51. Credit Concentration Risk- community rightly feels in the following manner : Credit concentration risk may arise from exposure to a single entity/group and/or exposures in the same economic or geographic sector and/or credit concentration in dependent industries. AIBL is now exposed to some of specific sectors and regions that are highly inviting concentration risks. Although these regions are economically important, AIBL has the scope to come out from such concentration gradually having a structural strategic perspective investment plan and diversify its investment portfolio in more potential sectors and areas and thus distribution of the risk factors. • Strategic RiskStrategic risk means the current and prospective risk to earnings and capital arising from imperfection in business strategy formulation, inefficiencies in implementing plan targets, or from the overlooking of changes in business environment. Strategic risk induces operational loss that consequently hampers the capital base. The key aim of strategic Risk Management is to strengthen the bank’s earnings resilience and protect it against undue earnings volatility to support overall risk appetite targets (especially CET-1 ratio and Leverage Ratio). AIBL involves all levels of management in formulating and establishing robust strategy planning process, and regularly reviews on incorporating changes to strategic environment. It is no longer an isolated problem confined to a place or region; • Nations have to join hands and deal with this scourge together; • Government and regulatory agencies have to join force and formulate strategies, operating procedures and legislative measures to combat this scourge. Bangladesh has major problems in this area. Over the years a huge volume of foreign currency (in terms of billions of US$) has been funneled out abroad through the illegal channels (hundi, etc.) and through Trade Finance activities. Not surprisingly GOB has entrusted an autonomous agency - Bangladesh Financial Intelligence Unit (BFIU) to handle and govern this serious and very important function. Banks in Bangladesh work closely under the auspices of BFIU. AIBL (in business for 22+ years) has an established framework for AML/CFT compliance. It has formulated its own Risk Management Policy Guidelines, approved by BOD. The policy guidelines establish standards of AML/CFT compliance that is applicable in all sphere of its business (branches/zones/ departments/divisions/wings) and also ensures compliance with existing laws & regulatory requirements. We are pleased to confirm that all reasonable steps are taken to effectively : Basel Accord Implementation: • To implement Basel III guidelines, AIBL formed units as under: a) Basel Unit, and b) Supervisory Review Process Team. • • All Risk Committee at Management level: The All Risk Committee at the Management level sits at least once in a month or more when necessary. In the meeting all the existing/identified and foreseeable/potential risks issues are discussed. Afterwards, recommendations are made and forwarded to the concerned risk taking departments to address, measure and take steps to mitigate the risk factors. All the meeting minutes along with Risk Management Papers are reported to the Department of Off-site Supervision of Bangladesh Bank duly. Risk Management Report: Monthly/Quarterly Risk Management Report and a HalfYearly Comprehensive Risk Management Report (CRMR) incorporating all risk areas are prepared as per directions of the prescribed format of Bangladesh Bank. These Reports are discussed in depth in the All Risk Committee in the Management level as well as Board Risk Management Committee and necessary instructions and guidance are given and implemented there against. Besides, AIBL sends Risk Appetite statement to Bangladesh Bank annually duly approved by the meeting of Board of Directors of the Bank. Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Prevention The score card on matters such as peace and harmony among neighboring states and conflicts often culminating in wars between them does not make good reading. The only positive news has been the consensus among nations on this issue of Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing and its growing menace. It is therefore not surprising that the global • maintain and verify the identity of customers via KYC (Know Your Client); periodically update information via CDD/EDD; classify accounts as High and Low risk. Higher level of due diligence and monitoring is required for High risk (per Master Circular 19 by BFIU); monitoring and Reporting of Suspicious Transactions (includes large and structured transactions on/above a specified threshold level). The pursuit to motivate and create staff awareness is ongoing. Training via workshops and seminars are arranged for new entrants and refreshers course for existing staff. AIBL remains as a preferred institution by BFIU to hold seminar/workshop as Lead Bank. We are proud of our association in the first Town Hall meeting held in Teknaf in 11/2018 arranged by BFIU. BFIU is lending immense support in educating and creating more awareness among banks. The following two notable cases need to be cited in this regard : The first ever held Town Hall meeting was arranged at Teknaf in November 2018 to create awareness on Human Trafficking and the illegal narcotics trade in the region. Under the auspices of BFIU, three banks were nominated to hold this event which includes AIBL. The fact that Mr. Abu Hena Mohd. Razee Hassan, Deputy Governor of Bangladesh Bank presided as Chief Guest underscores the importance attached to this conference. A conference was held in Bangkok, Thailand for head of banks and their CAMLCO. This was a joint venture between United States (through US Embassy and Department of Justice) and Bangladesh (through BFIU). All the speakers were professionals selected by US Embassy. 53 Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited Annual Report 2018
  52. Agent Banking has taken off well and is an area of growth for AIBL . Because of the associated risks, we intend to focus more on this business aspect. A new section will be set up to monitor this area in 1st quarter of this year. We hope to work very closely with this business segment in the coming period. Long Term Short Term Based on Date of Rating Validity Outlook The support from Management and Board of Directors is overwhelming. Zero tolerance on MLTF activities is the message which goes out at beginning of year from the Managing Director to all employees. Board is apprised of the department activities every six months.

AIBTRI, as per instruction of the BFIU successfully arranged, monitored and supervised the workshop with 67 (sixty seven) officials most of whom are BAMLCOs and Branch Managers of different Banks of Cumilla. AIBTRI: Home of Knowledge & Human Resources Development Reading Material Manual: Human resources are the main component of any development, improvement, changes or achievements. All material assets/ resources are to be utilized by human resources to execute any plan or program. If the human resources are not found to be capable in utilizing other assets or resources prudently, efficiently and effectively, success of any plan/program will be far away. So, it is very important to have a pool of excellent human resources for any organization/institution. Training involves the development of skills that are usually necessary to perform a specific job. It brings positive changes in knowledge, skills, attitude (KSA) and building confidence of the human capital so that they can be efficient in performing their duties and responsibilities. So, training is regarded to be one of the best means of improving performance of the Staff-member.

The need for Training Institute was keenly felt in the early seventies to cater to the management training needs of the banking sector. The formation of Al-Arafah Islami Bank Training & Research Institute (AIBTRI) sine-qua-non for the development of human resources at the very beginning of AIBL.AIBTRI had to concentrate on training of the entry level officers due to absence of appropriate training infrastructure in AIBL arena from the very beginning. However, with the passage of time it assumed the responsibility of imparting training to the mid and senior level officials of AIBL. The financial sector of Bangladesh underwent a number of reforms measures as per structural adjustment in the country. In line with these reforms, the AIBTRI has been adopting new strategies and methods for improving their services. AIBTRI is also keeping pace by putting its best efforts to respond to the need for capacity building of AIBL officials for implementation of the reform measures. Meanwhile, banking sector of Bangladesh demanded upgradation of capabilities of managerial level officials as the bank expanded horizon of operations. In line with that AIBTRI regularly updates its training areas, contents and methods.

  75. Report of the Shariah Supervisory Committee for the year ended on 31 December 2018 Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim Honourable Shareholders of Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited (AIBL) Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu. As a Shariah Supervisory Committee we examine all the banking activities to see whether all Shariah laws, guidelines, directions and Fatwas given by the Shariah Supervisory Committee from time to time have been complied with by the Bank or not. On the other hand it is the responsibility of the Management of the Bank to ensure compliance thereof. On completion of the examination Shariah Supervisory Committee places an Independent Report based on Islamic Shariah before the Shareholders. In line with the above we have meticulously scrutinized and examined all the activities including relevant documents, transactions and deals performed by 168 branches of AIBL during the year ended on 31.12.2018 (Esayee) (Hijri 1439-1440). Our Opinions and Suggestions are enumerated below: Opinions: a. On completion of the audit we have found that more or less all the activities, transactions and deals have been in accordance with the Shariah Principles and Regulations. b. Distribution of profits among various Mudaraba Depositors has been done in line with the Mudaraba Principles as per Sahibul Mal, i.e. as per the contractual agreement between the Bank and the Depositors. c. Since the Bank does not pay any Zakat on the money of the Depositors and Shareholders the responsibility of paying Zakat thus lies with the respective Depositors and Shareholders. d. Although all the activities have been in terms with Shariah Principles nevertheless due to ignorance of the obligation of abiding by some internal and international regulatory bindings and lack of proper due diligence there has been few cases where the means of the income earned have not been approved by the Shariah. This has been termed as Doubtful Income and the Bank has been advised to separate the same from its basic income and spend it on the basis of Shariah prescribed ways. This money is not to be distributed among the Depositors or Shareholder as Profit or Dividend. Suggestions: 1. To ensure buy and sell through Bai-muajjal and Bai-murabaha investment modes and to comply with the Shariah rules clients can even be appointed as “Buying-Agents” if needed. 2. Bank should introduce the Mudaraba and Musharaka investment schemes even in a small scale. 3. To assist in improving the socio-economic condition of the less privileged group of the population Bank should emphasize on the existing small investment schemes and introduce new development schemes based on Islamic Shariah. 4. In order to equip the employees with Islamic Banking knowledge Bank should arrange adequate training programs on Islamic Economics and Banking. 5. In order to generally involve more and more people into Islamic Banking and to make them understand the benefit of it in this life and hereafter Bank should arrange various seminars, workshops and client-gathering at the Head Office, Zones and Branch level on a regular basis. 6. To strengthen the welfare and CSR activities of Al-Arafah Islami Bank Foundation by ensuring the implementation of the Shariah rules and regulations. May Allah (SWT) forgive all our sins and accept all our good deeds for His sake and give us Tawfiq to do more and more activities beneficial to mankind. Ameen. (Md. Abdur Rahim Khan) Secretary Shariah Supervisory Committee 77 (Mufti Sayeed Ahmad Muzaddedi) Chairman Shariah Supervisory Committee Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited Annual Report 2018

Bangladesh Bank itself and all the scheduled banks are implementing the Strategy through Action Plans since 2013. National Integrity Strategy Action Plan and Implementation Progress Monitoring Structures, 2018-19 at field level, has also been in place since July 2018. Implementation Integrity & National Integrity Strategy: Integrity generally means behavioral excellence influenced by ethics, morality and honesty. It also implies adherence to time-tested norms, values, customs and principles of a society. At the individual level, it means being duty-bound and honest. Organizations are created by people for achievement of its common goal. For promotion of integrity, strict adherence to remaining morally and ethically correct at individual level is of critical importance. “Homes” can play a vital role in promoting integrity since moral education originates from homes. It is equally true about institutions, as they are the manifestation of the overall goal of the individuals. Laws, regulations, processes, policies, systems and the philosophy may be followed in such a manner that they can promote righteousness in life. So, beyond the laws/policies, a movement has to be initiated so that the citizens become ethical in public and private lives and integrity prevails in all organizations, business and civil society. Therefore keeping all these factors in mind, in order to establishing a good governance in all institutions and the in the society at large The Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh formulated a NATIONAL INTEGRITY STRATEGY to prevent corruption and promote an happy and prosperous Bangladesh.

We have audited the consolidated financial statements of Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited and its subsidiary (the “Group”) as well as the separate financial statements of Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited (the “Bank”), which comprise the consolidated and separate balance sheets as at 31 December 2018 and the consolidated and separate profit and loss accounts, consolidated and separate statements of changes in equity and consolidated and separate cash flow statements for the year then ended, and notes to the consolidated and separate financial statements, including a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information. In our opinion, the accompanying consolidated financial statements of the Group and separate financial statements of the Bank give a true and fair view of the consolidated financial position of the Group and the separate financial position of the Bank as at 31 December 2018, and of its consolidated and separate financial performance and its consolidated and separate cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) as explained in note 2. Basis for Opinion We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (ISAs). Our responsibilities under those standards are further described in the Auditors’ Responsibilities for the Audit of the Consolidated and Separate Financial Statements section of our report. We are independent of the Group and the Bank in accordance with the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants’ Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (IESBA Code), Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission (BSEC) and Bangladesh Bank, and we have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with the IESBA Code and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Bangladesh (ICAB) Bye Laws. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. Key Audit Matters Key audit matters are those matters that, in our professional judgement, were of most significance in our audit of the consolidated and separate financial statements of the current period. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the consolidated and separate financial statements as a whole, and in forming our opinion thereon, and we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters. Description of key audit matters Independent Auditor’s Report Opinion to the Shareholders of Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited Report on the Audit of the Consolidated and Separate Financial Statements Our response to key audit matters Measurement of provision for investments The process for estimating the provision for customer investments associated with credit risk is significant and complex. For the individual analysis for large exposure, provisions calculation consider the estimates of future business performance and the market value of collateral provided for availing investment facilities. For the collective analysis of exposure on portfolio basis, provision calculation and reporting are manually processed that deals with voluminous databases, assumptions and estimates. We tested the design and operating effectiveness of key controls focusing on the following: • Investment appraisal, disbursement and monitoring procedures, and provisioning process; • Identification of loss events, including early warning and default warning indicators; • Reviewed quarterly Classification of Investments (LoansCL) submitted to Bangladesh Bank; Our substantive procedur es in relation to the provision for investment portfolio comprised the following: • Reviewed the adequacy of the general and specific provisions in line with related Bangladesh Bank guidelines and; • Assessed the methodologies on which the provision amounts are based, recalculated the provisions and tested the completeness and accuracy of the underlying information; • Evaluated the appropriateness and presentation of disclosures against relevant accounting standards and Bangladesh Bank guidelines. 85 Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited Annual Report 2018
  84. • Finally, compared the amount of provision requirement as determined by Bangladesh Bank Department of Banking Inspection (DBI) team to the actual amount of provision maintained. See note no 9 and 15.2 to the financial statements • Finally, compared the amount of provision requirement as determined by Bangladesh Bank Department of Banking Inspection (DBI) team to the actual amount of provision maintained. Valuation of treasury bill and treasury bond (including Islami Bond) The classification and measurement of T-Bill and T-Bond require judgment and complex estimates. In the absence of a quoted price in an active market, the fair value of T-Bills and T-Bonds including Islami Bond issued by Bangladesh Bank is determined using complex valuation techniques which may take into consideration direct or indirect unobservable market data and complex pricing models which require an elevated level of judgment. See note no 8 to the financial statements We assessed the processes and controls put in place by the Bank to identify and confirm the existence of treasury bills and bonds. We obtained an understanding, evaluated the design and tested the operating effectiveness of the key controls over the treasury bills and bonds valuation processes, including controls over market data inputs into valuation models, model governance, and valuation adjustments. We tested a sample of the valuation models and the inputs used in those models, using a variety of techniques, including comparing inputs to available market data. Finally assessed the appropriateness and presentation of disclosures against relevant accounting standards and Bangladesh Bank guidelines. Impairment assessment of unquoted investments In the absence of a quoted price in an active market, We have assessed the processes and controls put in place by the Bank to ensure all the fair value of unquoted shares and bonds, major investment decisions are undertaken through a proper due diligence process. especially any impairment is calculated using valuation We tested a sample of investments valuation as at 31 December 2018 and techniques which may take into consideration direct compared our results to the recorded value. or indirect unobservable market data and hence Finally we assessed the appropriateness and presentation of disclosures require an elevated level of judgment. against relevant accounting standards and Bangladesh Bank guidelines. See note no 8 to the financial statements IT systems and controls Our audit procedures have a focus on IT systems and We tested the design and operating effectiveness of the Bank’s IT access controls due to the pervasive nature and complexity of controls over the information systems that are critical to financial reporting. the IT environment, the large volume of transactions We tested IT general controls (logical access, changes management and processed in numerous locations daily and the reliance aspects of IT operational controls). This included testing that requests for on automated and IT dependent manual controls. access to systems were appropriately reviewed and authorized. Our areas of audit focus included user access We tested the Bank’s periodic review of access rights and reviewed requests management, developer access to the production of changes to systems for appropriate approval and authorization. environment and changes to the IT environment. We considered the control environment relating to various interfaces, These are key to ensuring IT dependent and configuration and other application layer controls identified as key to our application based controls are operating effectively audit. Legal and regulatory matters We focused on this area because the Bank and its subsidiaries (the “Group”) operates in a legal and regulatory environment that is exposed to significant litigation and similar risks arising from disputes and regulatory proceedings. Such matters are subject to many uncertainties and the outcome may be difficult to predict. These uncertainties inherently affect the amount and timing of potential outflows with respect to the provisions which have been established and other contingent liabilities. Furthermore, the Bank operate under Islamic Shariah principles and its activities are supervised by a Shariah Council. Overall, the legal provision represents the Group’s and the Bank’s best estimate for existing legal matters that have a probable and estimable impact on the Group’s financial position. Carrying value of investments in subsidiary by the Bank The Bank has invested in equity shares of three subsidiaries, namely AIBL Capital Market Services Limited, AIBL Capital Management Ltd and Millennium Information Systems Limited as at 31 December 2018 the carrying value of this investment is BDT 3,060 million. At the time of conducting our audit of the separate financial statements of the Bank we have considered the recoverable value of the Bank’s investments in all the above subsidiaries stated at cost. Management has conducted impairment assessment and calculated recoverable value of its individual subsidiaries in accordance with IAS 36. Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited Annual Report 2018 We obtained an understanding, evaluated the design and tested the operational effectiveness of the Bank’s key controls over the legal provision and contingencies process. We enquired to those charged with governance to obtain their view on the status of all significant litigation and regulatory matters. We enquired of the Bank’s internal legal counsel for all significant litigation and regulatory matters and inspected internal notes and reports. We assessed the methodologies on which the provision amounts are based, recalculated the provisions, and tested the completeness and accuracy of the underlying information. We read minutes of various Shariah committee meetings and checked compliance of various directives. We also assessed the Bank’s provisions and contingent liabilities disclosure. We have reviewed Management’s analysis of impairment assessment and recoverable value calculation of subsidiaries in accordance with IAS 36. In particular, our discussions with the Management were focused on the continued appropriateness of the value in use model, the key assumptions used in the model, the reasonably possible alternative assumptions, particularly where they had the most impact on the value in use calculation. We also checked mathematical accuracy of the model, recalculated discount rate used within the model, inputs used in the determination of assumptions within the model were challenged and corroborating information was obtained with reference to external market information, third-party sources. 86
  85. Revaluation of property , plant and equipment The Bank in prior year has undertaken revaluation of its land . As a result of this revaluation exercise, an amount of BDT 977 million is recognised as the fair value gain in revaluation reserve. Determination of fair value in absence of any quoted price and active market require significant judgment We assessed the process of revaluation previously taken by the Bank. We reviewed revaluation report of the independent valuer along with relevant documents and applied our judgment to see whether the fair value is still relevant. Reporting on other information Management is responsible for the other information. The other information comprises all of the information in the annual report other than the consolidated and separate financial statements and our auditors’ report thereon. The annual report is expected to be made available to us after the date of this auditor’s report. Our opinion on the consolidated and separate financial statements does not cover the other information and we do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon. In connection with our audit of the consolidated and separate financial statements, our responsibility is to read the other information identified above when it becomes available and, in doing so, consider whether the other information is materially inconsistent with the financial statements or our knowledge obtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. When we read the annual report, if we conclude that there is a material misstatement therein, we are required to communicate the matter to those charged with governance. Responsibilities of Management and Those Charged with Governance for the Consolidated and Separate Financial Statements and Internal Controls Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of the consolidated financial statements of the Group and also separate financial statements of the Bank in accordance with IFRSs as explained in note 2, and for such internal control as management determines is necessary to enable the preparation of consolidated and separate financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. The Bank Company Act, 1991 and the Bangladesh Bank Regulations require the Management to ensure effective internal audit, internal control and risk management functions of the Bank. The Management is also required to make a self-assessment on the effectiveness of anti-fraud internal controls and report to Bangladesh Bank on instances of fraud and forgeries. In preparing the consolidated and separate financial statements, management is responsible for assessing the Group’s and the Bank’s ability to continue as a going concern, disclosing, as applicable, matters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless management either intends to liquidate the Group and the Bank or to cease operations, or has no realistic alternative but to do so. Those charged with governance are responsible for overseeing the Group’s and the Bank’s financial reporting process. Auditor’s Responsibilities for the Audit of the Consolidated and Separate Financial Statements Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated and separate financial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, and to issue an auditor’s report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance, but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with ISAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if, individually or in the aggregate, they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis of these consolidated and separate financial statements As part of an audit in accordance with ISAs, we exercise professional judgement and maintain professional scepticism throughout the audit. We also: • Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated and separate financial statements, whether due to fraud or error, design and perform audit procedures responsive to those risks, and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error, as fraud may involve collusion, forgery, intentional omissions, misrepresentations, or the override of internal control. • Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. • Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management. • Conclude on the appropriateness of management’s use of the going concern basis of accounting and, based on the audit evidence obtained, whether a material uncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the Group’s and the Bank’s ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists, we are required to draw attention in our auditor’s report to the related disclosures in the consolidated and separate financial statements or, if such disclosures are inadequate, to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor’s report. However, future events or conditions may cause the Group and the Bank to cease to continue as a going concern. • Evaluate the overall presentation, structure and content of the consolidated and separate financial statements, including the disclosures, and whether the consolidated and separate financial statements represent the underlying 87 Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited Annual Report 2018
  86. transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation . • Obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence regarding the financial information of the entities or business activities within the Group to express an opinion on the consolidated financial statements. We are responsible for the direction, supervision and performance of the group audit. We remain solely responsible for our audit opinion. We communicate with those charged with governance regarding, among other matters, the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings, including any significant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during our audit. We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that we have complied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence, and to communicate with them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on our independence, and where applicable, related safeguards. From the matters communicated with those charged with governance, we determine those matters that were of most significance in the audit of the financial statements of the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in our auditors’ report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matter or when, in extremely rare circumstances, we determine that a matter should not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of such communication. Report on other Legal and Regulatory Requirements In accordance with the Companies Act, 1994, the Securities and Exchange Rules 1987, the Bank Company Act, 1991 and the rules and regulations issued by Bangladesh Bank, we also report that: (i) we have obtained all the information and explanations which to the best of our knowledge and belief were necessary for the purpose of our audit and made due verification thereof; (ii) to the extent noted during the course of our audit work performed on the basis stated under the Auditor’s Responsibility section in forming the above opinion on the consolidated financial statements and considering the reports of the Management to Bangladesh Bank on anti-fraud internal controls and instances of fraud and forgeries as stated under the Management’s Responsibility for the financial statements and internal control: (a) internal audit, internal control and risk management arrangements of the Group as disclosed in the financial statements appeared to be materially adequate; (b) nothing has come to our attention regarding material instances of forgery or irregularity or administrative error and exception or anything detrimental committed by employees of the Group and its related entities {other than matters disclosed in these financial statements}; (iii) Consolidated financial statements of the Bank include three subsidiaries, namely AIBL Capital Market Services Limited, AIBL Capital Management Ltd and Millennium Information Systems Limited, reflecting total assets of BDT. 1184,47,24,548 as at 31 December 2018 and total revenue of Tk. 27,42,37,512 for the year ended 31 December 2018, which has been audited by another auditor who has expressed an unqualified audit opinion.

The risk management of the Bank covers 6 (six) Core Risk Areas of banking i.e Credit risk management, foreign exchange risk management, Assets Liability Management, prevention of money laundering and establishment of internal control and compliance and information & communication technology. The prime objective of the risk management is that the bank takes well calculative business risks while safeguarding the bank’s capital, its financial resources and profitability from various risks. In this context, the bank took steps to implement the guidelines of Bangladesh Bank as under : Credit Risk Management Credit risk is one of the major risks faced by the bank. This can be described as potential loss arising from the failure of a counter party to perform as per contractual agreement with the bank. The failure may result from unwillingness of the counter party or decline in his/her financial condition. Therefore, bank’s credit risk management activities have been designed to address all these issues. The bank has an investment (Credit) risk management committee at head office. The committee reviews the investment risk issues on monthly basis. The bank has segregated the investment approval, investment administration, investment recovery and legal authority. The bank has segregated duties of the officers/executives involved in credit related activities. A separate business development (marketing) department has been established at head office, which is entrusted with the duties of maintaining effective relationship with the customer, marketing of credit products, exploring new business opportunities etc. In the branches of the bank separate officials are engaged as relationship manager, documentation officer, verification officer, disbursement officer and recovery officer. Their jobs have been allocated and responsibilities have been defined. Investment (Credit) Risk Grading Manual The bank has implemented the Investment (Credit) Risk Grading Manual (IRGM) since April 1, 2006 which is made mandatory by Bangladesh Bank vide BRPD Circular No. 18 of December 11, 2005.

ALCO reviews liquidity requirement of the bank, the maturity of assets and liabilities, deposit and lending pricing strategy and the liquidity contingency plan. The primary objective of ALCO is to monitor and avert significant volatility in net profit income, investment value and exchange earnings. Internal control and compliance Effective internal controls are the foundation of safe and sound banking. A properly designed and consistently enforced system of operational and financial internal control helps the bank management to safeguard the bank’s resources, produce reliable financial and managerial report, and comply with laws and regulations. AIBL has taken all-out efforts to mitigate all sorts of risk in line with the guidelines issued by Bangladesh Bank. To this effect, the bank has formed an Internal Control & Compliance (ICC) wing headed by Deputy Managing Director. The ICC wing has been segregated to three departments which are audit & inspection division, compliance division and monitoring division. AIBL internal control contains self-monitoring mechanisms and to ensure effective control DCFCL, Investment documentation checklist and quarterly operation report have been developed and implemented. Internal audit and internal control teams carries out regular audit and surprise/special inspection of the branches to mitigate operational risk and restrain the possibility of circumvention or overriding the control procedure.

The Basel III capital regulation is being implemented from 2015. In line with the guidelines of the Bangladesh Bank, the Bank has adopted the following approaches for computing the capital charge. For Credit Risk – Standardized Approach For Market Risk – Standardized Approach Operational Risk – Basic Indicator Approach The Bank has a policy on Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (ICAAP) as stipulated by Bangladesh Bank. The ICAAP also details the Risk Appetite of the Bank, assessment of material risks, the process for capital adequacy assessment to support business projections, adequacy of risk control framework, capital raising plans and Bank-wide stress testing. The periodic assessment of bank’s performance against the Risk Appetite defined under ICAAP and results of stress testing are reported to the Board of Directors for their review. CRAR has been computed based on the Basel III guidelines and it is well above the regulatory minimum level of 10%.

Qualitative Disclosures: a) Definition of past due and impaired assets (for accounting purposes) A loan payment that has not been made as of its due date is termed as past due. Payment may be made for repayment/ renewal/rescheduling or as an installment of a claim. The past due claims are discussed below: Special Mention Accounts (SMA): A claim which is overdue for 90 days or more will be classified as Special Mention Account. When a loan is classified as SMA, it needs constant monitoring and supervision as the repayment probability decreases. Sub-Standard (SS): The repayment of the loan has been put in doubt but the recovery is not unlikely. Doubtful (DF): There is less possibility of recovery of the overdue amount and probability of loss is high. Bad /Loss (B/L): These are the loans which have almost turned unrecoverable. Approaches followed for specific and general allowances: i) Specific provision: a) Substandard : 20% b) Doubtful : 50% c) Bad/Loss : 100% ii) General Provision: a) 0.25% to 5% on different categories of unclassified loans. b) 1% on Off Balance sheet exposure. c) 5% on the outstanding amount of loans kept in the ‘Special Mention Account’ after netting off the amount of Interest Suspense. For classification of loan, specific and general allowances the bank follows Master Circular-Loan Classification and Provisioning vide BRPD circular no. 06 dated June 14, 2012; and as advised by Bangladesh Bank from time to time. In addition to the above mentioned objective criteria, loans can be classified on the basis of subjective judgment taking into consideration the factors such as uncertainty or doubt of repayment, continuous loss of capital, adverse situation, decrease of value of securities, legal suit etc. However, Bangladesh Bank can classify any claim on the basis of their subjective judgment as well as can ask the Bank to buildup additional provision on non-performing loans. Credit Risk Management Policy The bank has established Credit Risk Management framework as directed by Bangladesh Bank through introduction or Risk Management (CRM) policy guide along with implementation of the Credit Risk Grading (CRG). This framework defines CRM structure, role, responsibilities and the processes to identify, quantify, and manage risk within the framework under the given policy .The CRM policy is reviewed from time to time for adoption of new techniques/policies for measurement and management of risk in line with the socio-economic scenario and investment environment of the country.

The bank measures impact on profitability and impact on asset prices under market risk through Maturity GAP Analysis, Sensitivity Analysis, VAR, and Mark to Market and has adopted Standardized Measurement approach for measuring Market Risks under Basel-III. Standardized approach has been used to measure the market risk. The total capital requirement in respect of market risk is the aggregate capital requirement calculated for each of the risk sub-categories. The methodology to calculate capital requirement under Standardized Approach for each of these market risk categories is as follows: a) Capital charges for interest rate risk= Capital Charge for General Market Risk b) Capital charges for Equity Position Risk= Capital Charge for Specific Risk+ Capital Charge for General Market Risk c) Capital charges for Foreign Exchange Risk=Capital Charge for General Market Risk d) Capital charges for Commodity Position Risk=Capital Charge for General Market Risk The Bank has its own Market Risk Management System which includes Asset Liability Risk Management (ALM) and Foreign Exchange Risk Management under core risk management guidelines. The Treasury Division manage market risk covering liquidity, interest rate and foreign exchange risks with oversight from Asset-Liability Management Committee (ALCO) comprising senior executives of the Bank. ALCO is chaired by the Managing Director. ALCO meets at least once in a month. 161 Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited Annual Report 2018

  163. 10 . Leverage Ratio: a) Qualitative Disclosures: i) Views of BOD on system to reduce excessive leverage ii) Policies and processes for managing excessive on and off balance sheet leverage iii) Approach for calculating exposure Excessive leverage by banks is widely believed to have contributed to the global financial crisis. Thus Basel III rules have introduced leverage ratio as a non-risk-based backstop measure, to supplement risk-based capital requirements. Board of Directors of our Bank continuously is monitoring the exposure limit of lending, capital strength of our Bank in order to avoid building-up excessive on- and off-balance sheet leverage. Many regulators are considering raising the leverage ratio. This means that banks will have to keep more capital reserves. To increase capital reserves in order to meet higher leverage ratios requires selling assets to get cash or reducing lending. Higher leverage ratio can decrease the profitability of banks because it means banks can do less - profitable lending. However, increasing the leverage ratio means that banks have more capital reserves and can more easily survive a financial crisis. In view of the impact of leverage into the business, our bank management takes decision about future investment. Considering the financial strength, Bank also make Capital planning and business budget to go on a right way. The leverage ratio is a volume-based measure and is calculated as Basel III Tier I capital divided by total on and off-balance sheet exposures. A minimum Tier 1 leverage ratio of 3% is being prescribed both at solo and consolidated level.

In our opinion, the accompanying financial statements of the Company give a true and fair view of the financial position of the Company as at 31 December 2018 and of its financial performance and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs). Basis for Opinion We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (ISAs). Our responsibilities under those standards are further described in the Auditors’ Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements section of our report. We are independent of the Company in accordance with the ethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of the financial statements in Bangladesh and we have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with The International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA Code) & the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Bangladesh (ICAB) Bye-Laws. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. Responsibilities of Management and Those Charged with Governance for the Financial Statements and Internal Controls Management is responsible for maintenance of the required books of accounts & records, preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in accordance with IFRSs and for such internal control as management determines is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error and also for disclosure of matters that may affect any fact of the financial statements. In preparing the financial statements, management is responsible for assessing the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern, disclosing, as applicable, matters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless management either intends to liquidate the Company or to cease operations, or has no realistic alternative but to do so. Those Charged with Governance are responsible for overseeing the Company’s financial reporting process. Auditors’ Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, and to issue an auditor’s report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance, but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with ISAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if, individually or in the aggregate, they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis of these financial statements. As part of an audit in accordance with ISAs, we exercise professional judgement and maintain professional scepticism throughout the audit. We also: • Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error, design and perform audit procedures responsive to those risks, and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error, as fraud may involve collusion, forgery, intentional omissions, misrepresentations, or the override of internal control. • Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. • Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management. • Conclude on the appropriateness of management’s use of the going concern basis of accounting and, based on the audit evidence obtained, whether a material uncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists, we are required to draw attention in our auditor’s report to the related disclosures in the financial statements or, if such disclosures are inadequate, to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor’s report. However, future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue as a going concern. 169 Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited Annual Report 2018
  168. • Evaluate the overall presentation, structure and content of the financial statements, including the disclosures, and whether the financial statements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation. • Obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence regarding the financial information of the Company to express an opinion on the financial statements.

Tax exposures: In determining the amount of current and deferred tax, the Company takes into account the impact of uncertain tax positions and whether additional taxes and interest may be due. This assessment relies on estimates and assumptions and may involve a series of judgments about future events. New information may become available that causes the Company to change its judgment regarding the adequacy of existing tax liabilities; such changes to tax liabilities will impact tax expense in the period that such a determination is made. Provision on expenses Provision for expenses is recognized when the company has a present obligation as a result of a past event and it is probable that an outflow of resources embodying economic benefit will be required to settle the obligations and reliable estimate of the amount can be measured.

Income from margin loan: Income from margin loan is recognized on accrual basis. Such income is calculated considering daily margin loan balance respective parties. Income is recognized on monthly rest. Interest charged to margin loan that results to negative equity is not probable that the economic benefit associated with that portion will not flow to the company.

  187. Independent Auditor ’s Report To the Shareholders of AIBL Capital Management Limited Report on the Audit of the Financial Statements Opinion We have audited the financial statements of AIBL Capital Management Limited, which comprise the statement of financial position as at December 31, 2018, and the statement of comprehensive income, statement of changes in equity and statement of cash flows for the year then ended, and notes to the financial statements, including a summary of significant accounting policies. In our opinion, the financial statements give a true and fair view of the financial position of AIBL Capital Management Limited as at December 31, 2018 and its financial performance and its cash flows for the period from January 01, 2018 to December 31, 2018 then ended in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRs). Basis for Opinion We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (ISAs). Our responsibilities under those standards are further described in the Auditors’ Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements section of our report. We are independent of the Company in accordance with the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants’ Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (IESBA Code), and we have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with the IESBA Code. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. Going Concern The financial statements of the Company have been prepared using the going concern basis of accounting. The use of this basis of accounting is appropriate unless management either intends to liquidate the Company or to cease operations, or has no realistic alternative but to do so. As part of our audit of the financial statements, we have concluded that management’s use of the going concern basis of accounting in the preparation of the Company’s financial statements is appropriate. Management has not identified a material uncertainty that may cast significant doubt on the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern, and accordingly none is disclosed in the consolidated financial statements of the Company. Based on our audit of the financial statements of the Company, we also have not identified such a material uncertainty. However, neither management nor the auditor can guarantee the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Other Matter The financial statements of AIBL Capital Management Limited for the year ended December 31, 2018 were audited by HUSSAIN FARHAD & CO., Chartered Accountants; who expressed an unmodified opinion on those financial statements on December, 2018. Responsibilities of Management and Those Charged with Governance for the Financial Statements Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with IFRSs, and for such internal control as management determines is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. Those charged with governance are responsible for overseeing the Company’s financial reporting process. Auditor’s Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements The objectives of our audit are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, and to issue an auditor’s report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance, but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with ISAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if, individually or in the aggregate, they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis of these financial statements. As part of an audit in accordance with ISAs, we exercise professional judgment and maintain professional scepticism throughout the planning and performance of the audit. We also:  Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error, design and perform audit procedures responsive to those risks, and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error, as fraud may involve collusion, forgery, intentional omissions, misrepresentations, or the override of internal control.  Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order to design audit procedures that are 189 Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited Annual Report 2018
  188. appropriate in the circumstances , but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control.  Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.  Evaluate the overall presentation, structure and content of the financial statements, including the disclosures, and whether the financial statements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation. We are required to communicate with those charged with governance regarding, among other matters, the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings, including any significant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during our audit. We are also required to provide those charged with governance with a statement that we have complied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence, and to communicate with them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on our independence, and where applicable, related safeguards. Report on Other Legal and Regulatory Requirements In accordance with the Companies Act 1994, we also report the following: a) We have obtained all the information and explanation which to the best of our knowledge and belief were necessary for the purpose of our audit and made due verification thereof; b) In our opinion, proper books of account as required by law have been kept by the company so far as it appeared from our examination of those books; c) The statement of financial position, statement of profit or loss and other comprehensive income and statement of cash flows dealt with by the report are in agreement with the books of account and returns; Place, Dhaka Date: 5th March 2019 Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited Annual Report 2018 190 Hussain Farhad & Co.

  200. Auditor ’s Report on the Financial Statements of Millennium Infrmation Solution Limited for the Period ended December 31, 2018
  201. Independent Auditor ’s Report To the Shareholders of Millennium Information Solution Limited Report on the Audit of the Financial Statements Opinion We have audited the financial statements of MILLENNIUM INFORMATION SOLUTION LIMITED, which comprise the statement of financial position as at 31st December, 2018, and statements of profit or loss and other comprehensive income, statement of changes in equity and statement of cash flows for the year then ended, and notes to the financial statements including a summary of significant accounting policies. In our opinion, the accompanying financial statements present fairly in all material respects of the statement of financial position of MILLENNIUM INFORMATION SOLUTION LIMITED as at 31st December, 2018, and of its financial performance and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs), the Company Act 1994 and other applicable laws and regulations. Basis for Opinion We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (ISAs). Our responsibilities under those standards are further described in the Auditors’ Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements section of our report. We are independent of the Company in accordance with the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants’ Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (IESBA Code), together with the ethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of the financial statements in Bangladesh and we have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance these ethical requirements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. Key Audit Matters Key Audit matters are those matters that, in our professional judgment, were of most significance in our audit of the financial statements of the current period. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the financial statements as a whole, and in forming our opinion thereon, and we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters. We have determined that there are no key audit matters to communicate in our report. Other Information Management is responsible for the other information. The other information comprises all of the information other than the financial statements and our auditor’s report thereon. Our opinion on the financial statements does not cover the other information and we do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon. In connection with our audit of the financial statements, our responsibility is to read the other information and, in doing so, consider whether the other information is materially inconsistent with the financial statements or our knowledge obtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. Responsibilities of Management and Those Charged with Governance for the Financial Statements Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in accordance with IFRSs, the Companies Act 1994 and other applicable laws and regulations and for such internal control as management determines is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. In preparing the financial statements, management is responsible for assessing the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern, disclosing, as applicable, matters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless management either intends to liquidate the company or to cease operations, or has no realistic alternative but to do so. Those charged with governance are responsible for overseeing the Company’s financial reporting process. Auditor’s Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, and to issue an auditor’s report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance, but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with ISAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. 203 Al-Arafah Islami Bank Limited Annual Report 2018
  202. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if , individually or in the aggregate, they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis of these financial statements. As part of an audit in accordance with ISAs, we exercise professional judgment and maintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. We also: • Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error, design and perform audit procedures responsive to those risks, and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error, as fraud may involve collusion, forgery, intentional omissions, misrepresentations, or the override of internal control. • Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. • Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management but not for the purpose expressing the opinion on the effectiveness of the company’s internal control. • Conclude on the appropriateness of management’s use of the going concern basis of accounting and, based on the audit evidence obtained, whether a material uncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty exists, we are required to draw attention in our auditor’s report to the related disclosures in the financial statements or, if such disclosures are inadequate, to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor’s report.
