Moreover, the indicators of competence have the highest loading factors of professionalism; the indicator of information on fund management has the highest loading factors of transparency; while the indictor of measurement of economics has the highest loading factor of financial performance. To sum up, this research suggests that zakat institutions should improve their transparency and professionalism in order to improve their financial performance in the future.
