Chapter 4. Depository Institutions“Banks”

  • Asset/Liability problem

  • Commercial Banks

  • Savings and Loans

I. Asset/Liability Problem

  • Assets

    • how banks USE their funds

    • loans, cash reserves, securities

  • Liabilities

    • how banks GET their funds

    • deposits, borrowing, commercial paper


Interest Rate Risk

  • banks tend to borrow short and lend long

    • maturity intermediation

  • banks depend on spread income

    • interest received on assets minus interest paid on deposits


  • changes in interest rates will change profits

    • rising short-term rates reduce the spread income

      example:

      1970 30 yr. loan 9.1%, 6 mo. CD 8%

      1981 6 mo. CD 18.27%

  • derivatives help banks manage this risk


Liquidity

    • sell assets
