    Abstract

    In this article, we examine the influence of income diversification on systemic risk, using quarterly data from 42 publicly traded banks operating across six Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries over the period from January 2008 to December 2020. Our main finding is that diversification decreases systemic risk, and such effect is stronger in Islamic banks compared to their conventional counterparts. We also find that the COVID-19 pandemic equally affected Islamic and conventional banks. These findings are robust to various measures of diversification and systemic risk.
