Firms raise their capital via the common external funds either debt or equity. However, under certain conditions, firms are required to issue more complex financial engineering instruments namely hybrid securities. Literatures showed that very little studies have been conducted on Islamic Capital Market and in establishing the determinants of hybrid securities. Based on theories of capital structure which related to non hybrid capital structure, the variables and the models on hybrid financing are developed. In further filling the gap of the preceding studies, we developed a dynamic model by incorporating important variables that are associated to macroeconomic indicators that are economic growth (GDP), interest rate (BFR), level of stock market development and bond market development. Several estimation models are developed namely convertible bond plus loan stock which signify for debt treat hybrid (model 1) and warrant which is represent equity treat hybrid (model 2) respectively. This study employs the static model via panel ordinary least square (OLS), fixed effects model and random effects model to identify the best estimation model. Besides that, the study also include dynamic model via General Method of Moment (GMM) – first and second generation GMM, to get the most excellent model. From the analysis of static model, it reveals that the best estimation models for both hybrid securities are from model 1 and 2 of fixed effect model. Meanwhile from dynamic analysis, system GMM is considered the most excellent model. As inferences to the body of knowledge, this research has established several factors that are significant in determining hybrid securities for both debt and equity feature hybrid respectively…
