...DEPOSITORY INSTITUTION RESERVES * Any time there is an increase in reserves at the Fed, there is an increase in money supply. * The greater the uncertainty in the economy, the greater is bank management’s desire to hold excess reserves. * The higher the interest rate the Fed pays on reserves, the more likely the bank is to increase its holding excess reserves at the Fed. * Historically, the Fed has not paid interest on reserves. * Reserves can be transferred from one institution to another when checks and wire transfers are cleared from one institution to another. CAPITAL ADEQUACY REGULATION Basel I: * The central banks reached this agreement as part of an effort to coordinate bank supervisory policies, with the goal of strengthening the international banking system and alleviating competitive inequities. * Define capital uniformly across all nations, apply risk weights to all assets and off- balance- sheet exposures, set minimum levels of capital for international banks. * Tier 1 Capital (core capital): cms, paid in surplus, retained earnings, noncumulative preferred stock, minority interest in consolidated subsidiaries minus goodwill and other intangible assets. * Tier 2 Capital (Supplementary capital): cumulative preferred stock, loan loss reserves, subordinated debt instruments, debts that insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and represent a residual claim against the assets of the bank. * Tier 1: Total......

...Banking Sector in Bangladesh * By Super Admin * Published 26 September 2006 * Bangladesh Study * Rating: Unrated BANKING SECTOR IN BANGLADESH INTRODUCTION The Jews in Jerusalem introduced a kind of banking in the form of money lending before the birth of Christ. The word 'bank' was probably derived from the word 'bench' as during ancient time Jews used to do money -lending business sitting on long benches. First modern banking was introduced in 1668 in Stockholm as 'Svingss Pis Bank' which opened up a new era of banking activities throughout the European Mainland. In the South Asian region, early banking system was introduced by the Afghan traders popularly known as Kabuliwallas. Muslim businessmen from Kabul, Afghanistan came to India and started money lending business in exchange of interest sometime in 1312 A.D. They were known as 'Kabuliwallas'. NUMBER AND TYPES OF BANKS The number of banks in all now stands at 49 in Bangladesh.

In this short period of time it has gained great momentum and expanding at a fascinating rate. However, the growth can be best evaluated by considering the financial factors as well as its operations.

Discernible signs of renewed vitality have emerged. A number of actions have been considered by strategists to add depth to the market. Merchant banking, these days has been showing the path to achieve these goals.

...BANGLADESH RESEARCH Swinging Banking : Not Very Promising August 13, 2002 Not too bad if you may claim so ….. The Bangladesh banking sector relative to the size of its economy is comparatively larger than many economies of similar level of development and per capita income. The total size of the sector at 26.54% of GDP dominates the financial system, which is proportionately large for a country with a per capita income of only about US$370. The non-bank financial sector, including capital market institutions is only 3.22% of GDP, which is much smaller than the banking sector. The market capitalization of the Dhaka Stock Exchange was US$1,025 million or 2.19% of GDP as at mid-June 2002. In contrast, the size of the total financial sector in India, including banks and non-banks as well as the capital market is 150% (March 2002) of its GDP, with commercial banks accounting for 58.3% of GDP. Access to banking services for the population has improved during the last three decades. While population per branch was 57,700 in 1972, it was 19,800 in 1991. In 2001 it again rose to 21,300, due to winding up of a number of branches and growth in population. Compared to India’s 15,000 persons per branch in 2000, Bangladesh is not far behind in this regard. This indicates that access to the banking system in the country is not a significant problem. However the story tells a different tale The finance sector remains predominantly bank-based, accounting for 96% of the sector’s......

Banking Industry in Bangladesh

...Banking Industry in Bangladesh: Bangladesh is a third world country with an under developed banking system, particularly in terms of the services and customer care provided by the government run banks. Recently the private banks are trying to imitate the banking structure of the more developed countries, but this attempt is often foiled by inexpert or politically motivated government policies executed by the central bank of Bangladesh, Bangladesh Bank. The outcome is a banking system fostering corruption and illegal monetary activities/laundering etc. by the politically powerful and criminals, while at the same time making the attainment of services or the performance of international transactions difficult for the ordinary citizens, students studying abroad or through distance learning, general customers etc. The banking industry composed of 4(four) state owned commercial banks, five specialized banks, thirty nine private commercial banks, and nine foreign commercial banks. Banking Industry explained by Porter’s 5 factors: Michael E. Porter developed Five factors that act together to determine the nature of competition within an industry that affect a business ability to compete.  These are: * Threat of new entrants to a market * Bargaining power of suppliers * Bargaining power of customers /buyers * Threat of substitute products * Degree of competitive rivalry They are discussing below: * Threat of new entrants to an industry In the banking...

Baking Industry of Bangladesh

...Banking industry of Bangladesh Banks safeguard money and provide loans, credit, and payment services such as checking accounts, debit cards, and cashier's checks. Banks also may offer investment and insurance products. As a variety of models for cooperation and integration among finance industries have emerged, some of the traditional distinctions between banks, insurance companies, and securities firms have diminished. In spite of these changes, banks continue to maintain and perform their primary role—accepting deposits and lending money. After the independence, banking industry in Bangladesh started its journey with 6 Nationalized commercialized banks, 2 State owned Specialized banks and 3 Foreign Banks. In the 1980's banking industry achieved significant expansion with the entrance of private banks. Now, banks in Bangladesh are primarily of two types: * Scheduled Banks: The banks which get license to operate under Bank Company Act, 1991 (Amended in 2003) are termed as Scheduled Banks. * Non-Scheduled Banks: The banks which are established for special and definite objective and operate under the acts that are enacted for meeting up those objectives, are termed as Non-Scheduled Banks. These banks cannot perform all functions of scheduled banks. There are 56 scheduled banks in Bangladesh who operate under full control and supervision of Bangladesh Bank which is empowered to do so through Bangladesh Bank Order, 1972 and Bank Company Act, 1991.

The number of banks in all now stands at 49 in Bangladesh. Out of the 49 banks, four are Nationalized Commercial Banks (NCBs), 28 local private commercial banks, 12 foreign banks and the rest five are Development Financial Institutions (DFIs).

Green Banking Practices of Commercial Banks in Bangladesh

...1 Introduction: A bank is a financial institution, where people secure their money and use this institution as a source of possible finance. Banking in the form in which it exists nowadays is comparatively of recent origin. Before the advent of modern banking, direct finance, where the owner of capital deals directly with the user of capital, was the customary mode of transference of funds from savers to investors. Now, banks are engaged in various functions i.e., receiving, collecting, transferring, paying, lending, investing, dealing, exchanging, and servicing money and claims to money both locally and internationally. Bangladesh is a country suffering from immense social, political, economic and environmental issues and these issues need to be addressed for the overall development of this country. However, we all know that the people of the whole world are concerned about the environmental degradation, especially the rising of global temperature and thereby melting of glaciers and ice-berg in the polar region and consequently rising of sea level, which will directly affect the low lying countries of the world like Bangladesh. The world conscious people are also concerned about the increase of Green House Gases and Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and thereby depletion of Ozone layer. As such, every person and especially the professionals must have greater role to check the environmental degradation. The contribution of the banking sector is playing significant role to......

Corporate Governance of Commercial Banks in Bangladesh

...Corporate Governance of Commercial Banks in Bangladesh Introduction: The need for corporate governance arises from the potential conflicts of interest among stakeholders in the corporate structure. These conflicts of interest often arise from two main reasons. First, different stakeholders have different goals and preferences. Second, the stakeholders have imperfect information as to each others actions, knowledge, and preferences. Corporate governance (CG) is an important effort to ensure accountability and responsibility and is a set of principles, which should be incorporated into every part of the organization. Though it is viewed as a recent issue, there is, in fact, nothing new about the concept. Because it has been in existence as long as the corporation itself-as long as there has been large – scale trade, reflecting the need for responsibility in the handling money and the conduct of commercial activities. Numerous works, studies, and researches have been conducted to enact principles, codes, and guidelines for ensuring good corporate governance systems and culture within the organizations. Sir Adrian Cadbury in 'Global Corporate Governance Forum’ defined corporate governance as: "Corporate Governance is concerned with holding the balance between economic and social goals and between individual and communal goals. The corporate governance framework is there to encourage the efficient use of resources and equally to require accountability for the......
