On April 6, 1998, the creation of Citigroup through the combination of
Citicorp and Travelers Inc. was announced to the general applause of
analysts and financial pundits. The “merger of equals” created the world’s
largest financial services firm—largest in market value, product range,
and geographic scope. Management claimed that strict attention to the
use of capital and rigorous control of costs (a Travelers specialty) could
be combined with Citicorp’s uniquely global footprint and retail banking
franchise to produce uncommonly good revenue and cost synergies.
Some young savers stash their cash in shoe boxes or jelly jars. Others use “piggy banks,” which
today look more like spaceships or cartoon characters. In any case, the sample problem arises. Sooner or later, the biggy bank or jelly jar fills up and you have to make a decision.
The Committee believes that a successful implementation of the revised Framework will provide banks and supervisors with critical experience necessary to address such challenges. The Committee understands that the IRB approach represents a point on the continuum between purely regulatory measures of credit risk and an approach that builds more fully on internal credit risk models. In principle, further movements along that continuum are foreseeable, subject to an ability to address adequately concerns about reliability, comparability, validation, and competitive equity.......
Complacency is dangerous, especially in a rapidly changing world. For
decades, Japanese bankers were complacent with a rapidly growing
economy and with cozy relationships with government bureaucrats who
pursued policies that virtually eliminated traditional banking risks.
Rapid economic growth, for instance, provided a steady ﬂow of deposits,
which in turn ﬁnanced corporate expansion. Rapid economic growth fur-
ther fueled corporate proﬁts and asset inﬂation that made the repayment
of loans almost...
General scanners have a broad list of attributes in mind and spend a minimal
amount of time matching resumes to their criteria. Usually, they start by doing
a quick scan, looking for the obvious scoop on the person: Did he go to a top
school? Has she worked for good companies? What functional knowledge does
he have? It’s best if this information is prominent and comes immediately to
the eye. If they like what they see, then they’ll read through the entire resume.
This approach is fairly typical of the way an investment banking team...
1. Inflation targeting is becoming the monetary policy framework of choice in a
growing number of emerging market and developing countries. This paper examines the
experience of non-industrial inflation targeting countries to review the implications for the
Fund’s approach to surveillance, technical assistance, and the design of conditionality in
Fund-supported programs. For this examination, the paper uses macroeconomic data,
technical assistance reports, and a new survey of central banks in selected emerging markets....
Banks operating in the main developed countries have been exposed, since the Seventies,
to four significant drivers of change, mutually interconnected and mutually reinforcing.
The first one is a stronger integration among national financial markets (such as stock
markets and markets for interest rates and FX rates) which made it easier, for economic
shocks, to spread across national boundaries.
This much-needed book, from a selection of top international experts, fills a gap by providing a manual of applied quantitative financial analysis. It focuses on advanced empirical methods for modelling financial markets in the context of practical financial applications.Data, software and techniques specifically aligned to trading and investment will enable the reader to implement and interpret quantitative methodologies covering various models.
AN EXAMINATION OF THE CONFORMANCE OF BANK INTERNAL AUDITORS WITH INTERNAL AUDITING STANDARS Recall equation (3), which suggested that a naïve estimate of the peer effect is
magnified by effectiveness sorting, with the degree of magnification being

Strong internal control, including an internal audit function and an independent
external audit, are part of sound corporate governance. In banks, these are also important for
the safety and soundness of operations and can contribute to an efficient and constructive
working relationship between bank management and banking supervisors. Appropriate
communication between banking supervisors and banks’ internal and external auditors will
improve the effectiveness of audits and supervision.
We model the impact of bank mergers on loan competition, reserve holdings,
and aggregate liquidity. A merger changes the distribution of liquidity
shocks and creates an internal money market, leading to financial cost efficiencies
and more precise estimates of liquidity needs. The merged banks
may increase their reserve holdings through an internalization effect or decrease
them because of a diversification effect. The merger also affects loan
market competition, which in turn modifies the distribution of bank sizes
and aggregate liquidity needs.

A final way banks raise funds in the money market is through repurchase agreements (RPs). An RP is a
sale of securities with a simultaneous agreement by the seller to repurchase them at a later date. (For the
lender—that is, the buyer of the securities in such a transaction—the agreement is often called a reverse
RP.) In effect this agreement (when properly executed) is a short-term collateralized loan. Most RPs involve
U.S. government securities or securities issued by government-sponsored enterprises. Banks are active
participants on the borrowing side of the RP market. ...
Several international organisations and large ﬁ nancial institutions have developed ﬁ nancing
conditions indices (FCIs).
Isolating ﬁ nancing conditions from monetary conditions is especially
useful at the current juncture, which is characterised by low monetary policy rates but substantial
stress in the ﬁ nancial system. This box reviews brieﬂ y the methodology used to construct such
FCIs and looks at some results obtained for the euro area as a whole.
