Chinese Banking System- Risk Management
Central banks are the principal monetary authority of a country or a group of countries and are crucial to the functioning of all banks, financial markets, and the economy. “Central banks typically expose themselves to variety of risks including market, credit, interest rate and liquidity risk”. (PWC.com). Furthermore, central banks are exposed to significant reputational and operational risks as well as legal risks. Central banks necessitate the combination ofliquidity, safety and the enhancement of returns on invested funds, as the fundamental criteria for managing its reserves and financial risks. Hence, central banks usually implement a separate risk management department that monitors the central bank widerisks.
In the Chinese banking system, China Bank Regulatory Commission (CBRC) is responsible for overseeing risk management of all the Chinese banks. The CBRC requires banks to take operative measures to address the weaknesses in their internal controls and improve their risk management and internal control practices.Due to the complicated and changing economic and market environments, both internationally and domestically, along with the emerging risks on various fronts, the CBRC strives to take responsive actions to facilitate sound and sustainable economic and financial developments in China. It endeavors to identify andmitigate risks in a forward-looking manner, by constantly improving the regulatory framework and supervisory conduct.

In 2011, CRBC in its 12th five year plan, provided guidelines to banks on different supervisory and regulatory controls to manage various risk faced by banks including but not limited to:
CREDIT RISK: The goal of credit risk management is to maximize a bank's risk-adjusted rate of return by maintaining credit risk exposure within acceptable parameters. Since exposure to credit…...

China

...INTRODUCTION China is the world second biggest economy in the world; this result was achieved in the last 30 years as its economy has been growing in average 10% annually (According to International Monetary Fund). This uncommon economics performance compels economists all around the world to ask them selves is a democracy an only system of government which guarantee sustainable growth and development of an economy? Though some economists believe that democracy, as the most common type of capitalism, is the most “healthful” and useful economics and government system, China is a socialist country. Socialism – “Compare capitalism an economic theory or system in which the means of production, distribution, and exchange are owned by the community collectively, usually through the state.” . From the definition it may be concluded that free market economy is more common for democracy (Capitalism), whereas planned economy is more typical to socialism. In a free market 3 basic production decisions: what to produce, how to do this and for whom these products should be produced; are made by the price mechanism without or very limited government intervention. Price mechanism assure that that there will be high competition in the market which will lead to high level of quality and innovations, low prices and quick respond to consumer’s wants as producers have to compete for consumers. However, as these decisions are made only by market forces some of them may be wrong, market......

Banking System in China

...country, China’s banking system is quite different from the banking systems in the western economies. In this essay, after a brief illustration of the development of banking system in China, the recent event of money shortage in it will be discussed. Development of banking system in China “Piaohao” is the earliest Chinese form of bank which appeared in the Qing dynasty (over 200 years ago). It is a firm for exchanging and transferring money, and it also provided deposit and loan services. However, the first modern bank is established by the English in Shanghai in 1845 (Wang, 2008). After the People's Republic was founded in 1949, the modern banking system of china was built and developed gradually. Recently there are 3 major types of bank in the system. First, the central bank, which is The People’s bank of China, operates similar functions as that of western countries. And it is the only bank that can issue Chinese currency (RMB) and unify the national currency (PBC, 2013). The second type of bank is policy banks, which are established by the Chinese government and they are non-profit oriented. The major role of these banks is to provide long-term financing support for economic and trade development and state-invested projects (Wong, 2001). The last type is commercial banks, including state-owned banks, local bank, private bank, foreign bank and other types of small and medium banks (Wong, 2001). In particular, the “big four” state-owned banks of China were ranked as 4...

Country Attractiveness Report(Banking in China vs. Vietman)

...dependability on banks is in fact making this banking industry highly competitive and concentrated as discussed below. As these industries take their time to analyze the merits and demerits of each bank in the industry and which is likely to benefit them more, the banks on the other hand strive to make their business attractive to those potential customers. What will result is onset of competition that will increase the innovativeness of the banks as each struggle to attract the highest number of industries in form of customers. Attractiveness in Banking Investment Introduction The recent years have seen a rise in large and well-established banks in developed economies. This has raised concerns on the effects such banks will have on the countries’ economy. Many economists are of the view that large banks may have a negative impact on a country’s economy as well as the borrowers. As such, there have been debates on whether or not large banks should be broken up into small banks that have less market power. Scholars from Vietnam and China advocated for the need to break up banks in order to reduce taxpayers and depositors’ risk and enhancing the bank’s leverages level. There are various benefits relating to breaking up banks. As such, China and Vietnam might be right in listening to the claims that large banks should be broken up. This paper will examine this claim in detail by examining whether Vietnam and China banking sector are in trouble or not. This is a......

China

...Problem?” Problem Statement In 2006, China has undergone pressure by many countries including the United States. The U.S. believed that the renminbi (RMB), failed to appreciate eliminating job opportunities for other countries. However, China’s officials reacted by implying that China was a sovereign country with the right to choose its exchange rate policy. Pertinent Facts The exchange rate is one of the key factors that could possibly affect foreign profitability. In the case, Fung and Wong indicated in 2006, that China had become the world’s third-largest exporter with an estimated $970 billion and earning $1.2 trillion in foreign currency reserves (Fung). The U.S. and other countries are concerned that the Yuan was undervalued which will ultimately raise the demand for Chinese exports and decrease China's demand for imports from other countries. Becker states that if China keeps the dollar and the currencies of other countries artificially expensive compared to its currency it will create a problem towards other economies (Becker). The U.S. believes that China is manipulating the exchange rate to increase trade and dollar assets. The United States have also expressed extreme concern with China’s way of trade. For example, the U.S. questioned the fact that the renminbi is being a peg against the dollar. This case analysis will subsequently identify the following answers to the questions: * Should China allow the Yuan to appreciate? *......

Abstract Online banking, an Internet based service enabling people to do financial transactions, has been an obstacle for the development of e-commerce in China. This paper investigates the online banking acceptance in China. We conducted an experiment to investigate how users’ perception about online banking is affected by the perceived ease of use of website and the privacy policy provided by the online banking website. We find that both perceived ease of use and privacy policy have a significant impact on user’s adoption of online banking. In this study, we also investigate the relative importance of perceived ease of use, privacy, and security. Perceived ease of use is of less importance than privacy and security. Security is the most important factor influencing user’s adoption. A discussion of the implications of these results and limitations are provided at the end...

...The Transformation of China from an Emerging Economy to a Global Powerhouse James R. Barth, Gerard Caprio Jr., and Triphon Phumiwasana Abstract Throughout the past three decades of fast growth, China has undergone tremendous structural changes in its economy and financial system. This chapter examines China’s evolving financial landscape so as to assess whether it can catch up with or even drive economic growth. China has achieved remarkable growth over the past quarter of a century despite a relatively inefficient financial system. Just as the public sector around the world has not proved to be an efficient manager of enterprises, it also has not been an efficient manager of banks. A solution that would seem to work in theory would be to grow the private sector’s role in the banking system, using banks that operate on market principles as a way to continually starve inefficient enterprises of credit, while supplying credit to the productive enterprises. Finding a way to make this work in practice will require both finesse and good fortune on a scale commensurate with China’s growing importance in the world economy.

Islamic Banking in Western China

...Islamic Banking in Western China Group Paper 3 Group 4 November 6, 2014 Banking in some form has been around for thousands of years. It started small with loans of food or some other valuable product in local villages and has now evolved into the global industry we know today. There is a newer kind of banking that has seen a surge of acceptance from across the world, and that new kind of banking is known as Islamic banking. Islamic banking is a fairly new alternative to western banking, starting in the 1970’s. It is based on Shariah, the fundamental Islam religion. This is a socially responsible way to do banking and allows religion to guide decisions. Interest based transactions are not allowed because they violate Islamic law (Varriale, 2014). Instead, they share profits and losses with the lenders and borrowers of the banks. A few concepts, musharaka, murabaha, and mudaraba, are used in place of interest. Musharaka is when a borrower repays their loan through principal payments and a predetermined percentage of profits. Mudaraba is when a borrower agrees to pay the bank a handling fee if the investment is successful (R.J.C. and A.O.S., 2009). Murabaha is when the bank buys an asset for a customer and then sells it to them on a deferred basis, avoiding an interest-bearing loan. They also offer leasing agreements (R.J.C. and A.O.S., 2009). Islamic banking also requires tangible assets to back up the financial products. This is a much more conservative......

The Fair Value and Its Predictability on Earnings in Banking Industry in China

...of Chongqing University The Fair Value and Its Predictability on earnings in Banking Industry in China Undergraduate: Cai Linling Supervisor: Prof. Lu Jing Major: Finance School of Economic and Business Administration Chongqing University June 2014 摘 要 早在1970年会计原则委员会(APB)报告书中就出现了公允价值这一概念,96年FASB(美国财务会计准则)对公允价值概念重新界定,美国也一直在推进公允价值计量的运用,并且研究得出,公允价值计量可以预测商业银行的盈余信息,这是对公允价值的肯定。而在2006年,中国才对公允价值重新运用,这与国际的会计准则逐渐接轨,但是我们还是得承认公允价值在中国的运用较晚,所以要确定公允价值计量是否满足财务报告的目标,即是否可以预测商业银行的盈余信息,我们将利用美国Brian(2012年)的方法,即用资产负债表法和损益表法预测未来现金流和未来收益的能力,结果显示我国的公允价值计量尚不具备此能力,其原因应当归为我国审慎运用公允价值计量方式、市场开放程度不高和样本量较少,我们对此做出展望,随着市场的进一步开放,并且我国的上市银行逐渐增多,我们将有一定可能性通过分析和实证得出公允价值计量能预测商业银行的盈余信息,这将是中国会计和上市公司的好消息。 关键词:上市银行,公允价值,商业银行,盈余信息 ABSTRACT As early as 1970, the financial report of Accounting Principle Board(APB) has started to mention a theory of fair value.In 1996, Financial Accounting Standards Board(FASB) refined the theory of fair value.At the same time,the United States has been promoting the use of fair value accounting and the study concluded that fair value accounting can predict of future earnings of banking industry which is recognition of fair value. However, China reused the fair value since 2006 which began to meet the international accounting standards.But we have to admit that the use of fair value is late in China. Hence, the study that the fair value is still predictive to future earnings in China is necessary. And in the following study, I would like to use the method of......

All HH loan segments continued to register softer growth except residential property. Still NEUTRAL on the sector; BUYs are AMMB, HL Bank and HLFG. MPHB Capital is also a BUY with a TP of MYR2.42. desmond.chng@maybank-ib.com What’s New Industry loan growth was 10.0% YoY in Apr 2014, with household (HH) loans expanding at a more moderate 11.6% YoY in Apr 2014 vs 11.7% YoY in Mar 2014, while non-HH loan growth was a slower 7.9% YoY vs 8.3% YoY in Mar 2014. Positively, cumulative PDS issuances to date are 4.5% higher versus the same period last year. Also positive is the fact that industry fundamentals remain solid, with an all-time low gross NPL ratio of 1.8%, strong loan loss coverage at almost 105%, stable interest spreads and a stable loan/deposit ratio at 85%. What’s Our View Banks have become more selective in their approval of residential property loans but demand is likely to hold up due to: (i) expectations of higher property prices post GST; and (ii) prevailing negative real rates that will encourage investors to seek an inflation hedge. Whether this will prompt further property measures remains to be seen. Overall loan approval rates continue to soften while application trends have yet to see a meaningful...

...Leonard Bilal Blacklock AC0325687 World Civilizations I (HS150) Lesson 6 Assignment 6 03/04/2015 Sui Dynasty (589 – 618 CE) was a short lived Imperial Chinese dynasty, preceded by the Southern and Northern Dynasties. It unified China for the first time after nearly four centuries of north-south division. It was followed by the Tang Dynasty. Founded by Emperor Wen of Sui, the capital was Chang’an. His reign saw the reunification of Southern and Northern China and the construction of the Grand Canal, connecting the Yellow and Yangtze River for easy trading. The canal was used to carry rice and other agricultural products. Wendi was the first emperor to build a centralized government, created legal codes (social security); Buddhism was also spread and encouraged throughout the empire, uniting varied peoples and cultures of China.(Refer to pages 277; Wikipedia,2015). The Sui dynasty which reunified China after nearly four centuries of political fragmentation during which the north and south had developed in different ways, played a part far more important than its short span would suggest. In the same way that the Qin rulers of the 3rd century BC had unified China after the Zhanguo (Warring States) period, so the Sui brought China together again and set up many institutions that were to be adopted by their successors, the Tang. Like the Qin, however, the Sui overstrained their resources and fell. And also as in the case of the Qin, traditional history has judged......

...China’s Peaceful Rise to Dominance The current state of the globe has seen many changes in the past few decades. The global political structures have shifted and turned to provide a new landscape where substantial evolution has and will continue to occur. The purpose of this essay is to argue and prove that China will rise to power in a peaceful manner throughout the 21st century. This paper will first explain the current situation, which has left China in position to become a global leader as the new century unfolds. The essay will also examine military, economic and social issues that may positively contribute to this change and lead this Asian country to a new significant posture within the geo-political realm of international relations. The Rise of China towards the 21st Century Technology and communication improvements have changed the world for good. With new developments in these areas, the world has become much smaller and navigable in many ways when discussing China and their current rise to global prominence in recent times. The end of the Cold War which saw a bipolar world develop into a unipolar world has created opportunity for other powerful nations to step in and play a key role in global events that are unfolding. China’s massive population and natural resources have continued to organize and be directed towards more powerful means. Chinese leaders have seen this coming for years as the country began opening up to global interests in the 1970’s. As......

...developed countries, put forward a relatively high demand on the openness of financial industry. In order to join the WTO, China had to make a promise to open up financial industry in a planed and steady way, and the Schedule of Specific Commitment in the documents appended thereto of the Agreement on Financial services is a measure of the degree of openness Because banking is the cornerstone of the financial industry, the degree of banking openness decides that of the financial industry in a large part. Therefore, the study of banking openness has been one of hot topics both in the academic field and practice field. Many researchers discuss the challenges and competition we face after join the WTO, so does the strategy to fight against the foreign banks. However, in order to find out the way to strengthen the domestic banks, attention should be paid not only on what we can do inside the country, but what others had done outside the country. We should learn the experience of other countries in order to spot out China’s shortage in banking and improve it.
