Abstract The advent of the recent financial crisis has signalled the importance of having a total picture of the overall financial system instead of earlier focus by academicians and policy makers on individual banks. This new approach is termed as the Macro-prudential perspective and tries to understand the interconnectedness of financial institutions as well the effect of pro-cyclicality (the tendency for problems to be hidden during boom and exposed during crisis) to the financial system and the overall economy. Such totalitarian approach needs an effective system to identify those financial institutions with the capacity to distract the operations of financial markets or with the ability to breakdown the entire financial system.

The value of financial promises is depends on the willingness and the ability of inndividual or company in term of making promises either good promise or bad promise. Securitization will become loans backed by general credit of the borrower and can become a securitization backed by legal obligations in term of forfeoture in certain asset and forcing in payment. In addition, according to Fabozzi & Kothari (2008) stated that securitization is also known as secured lending or asset based lending where there has a
According to McCulley (2009), financing has got creative through the rise of securitization vehicles which has got momentum just before the financial crisis. Now the term represents a broader range of entities and activities. Moreover, ‘market-based financing’ instead of ‘shadow banking’ is preferred by some authorities and market participants. The term ‘shadow banking’ is sometimes deemed as too pejorative to characterize such an important and extensive part of the financial system despite the risks and lack of transparency involved in its activities (FSB, 2013).
As Kambhu (2007) said ‘In general, a financial institution may be willing to extend credit to the hedge fund against the posting of specific collateral that is valued at no less than the amount of the exposure. This reduction in settlement risk in leveraged trading increases confidence and thereby promotes active financing of leveraged trading’. As a result, this CCRM system could reduce some risks, make hedge funds safer and attract more
Reasonable esteem bookkeeping requires a firm to unveil broad data about the strategy utilized, the supposition made, hazard introduction, related sensitivities and different issues that outcome in a careful money related articulation. Moreover, Dependable Information, For a money related information to be solid, they should be undeniable and impartial. Since reasonable esteem is induced from the market cost of a given resource, this esteem can be checked looking back from accessible data about the present and past market costs. Since it is important to incorporate the system and reveal the data about conceivable deviations from a cited cost in the money related articulation, this data can likewise be
1.4 Delimitations The main focus of this thesis is to examine how big European largest banks are. Therefore different measures of size are deployed for these big banks and are related to their respective CDS spread. Other credit risk indicators could have been used but 5 year CDS spreads were preferred because they reflect changes in credit risk very accurate and quicker.
1.1 CREDIT-RELATED TOOLS These tools are mainly used to target individual problematic sectors within an economy. For example, if real estate prices are booming due to cheap credit, a loan-to-value ratio limit can be imposed, which restricts the amount that can be borrowed relative to the underlying collateral. A similar measure is the loan-to-income ratio which shows the relative size of the loan in comparison to the borrower’s income.
Introduction Banks and other financial institutions plays an active role in meeting the financial needs of individuals and corporate entities. One of the principal activities performed by banks is to serve as intermediary between lenders and borrowers. Indeed, banking can be said to thrive principally on intermediation which is the process of lending money out to borrowers at a relatively high rate compared to the deposit interest rate. However, some conditions subsist that leads to the erosion of this role performed by banks and this is referred to as disintermediation. In the general sense, disintermediation refers to a situation where the activities of middlemen are avoided in the course of a transaction.
Besides, it is a critical tactic in evaluating the company’s economic prospects and risks and also to protect investment considering the fact that its propels investors to craft and implement productive decisions and plans such as investing in equity or debt securities, extending credit through short or long term loans, valuing a business in an initial public offering (IPO), and evaluating restructurings including mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures, all drawn up with respect to the development and sustainability of the firm's operations towards hitting the market waves aimed at detailing colossal profits. Furthermore, Financial analysis determine the level of business operations, continuity or incoherence of the business; level of manufacturing product acquisition, extent of service expansion, purchase or rent/lease of production machinery and equipment, and the issuance of stocks, negotiation for bank loan and investment of capital; thus allowing the management to decide and implement alternatives to enhance business operations. Conclusively, the core rationale of financial statement analysis is
But some improvements can still be made by the ESRB in order to improve the efficiency of macro-prudential supervision, such as a more proactive communication strategy. The EC plans on examining the ESRB’s organisation in order to increase its autonomy as well as giving the ESRB more tools to be able to have an earlier intervention. The European Securities and Market Authorities The aim of the ESMA is to protect the stability and efficiency of the financial system.
Another new rule is the stress test. It applies not only to banks but also for any large hedge fund that is considered a systematically significant nonbank financial company (SSNF). The SEC examiners want to understand how the firm communicates investment values and handles liquidations because during the financial crisis we know that large financial institutions faced a critical sell-off or liquidity. It is important that the firm complies with contingent capital requirements and tighter risk management models. If for example the firm trades swaps, the SEC wants to see that the firm has made risk adjustments for clearing
My academic goals after I graduated from UC Irvine is to achieve a higher education beyond a Bachelor of Science in Public Health Sciences. I have set going to dental school as a primary goal after graduating. My goal is to eventually obtain a D.D.S (Doctor of Dentist Surgery) degree.
