This study investigate the impact of lending structure on the Islamic banks' insolvency risk exposure by analysing four lending structure instrument 1) the ratio of real estate lending to total asset; 2) lending concentration; 3)short term lending lending portfolio stability; and 4) medium term lending portfolio stability. Our findings indicate that an increase in real estate lending could decrease the Islamic banks insolvency risk exposure. Similarly, our result for lending concentration show that loan specialisation could reduce islamic banks' insolvency risk exposure.
