The views expressed in this paper do not necessarily reflect those of the Bank of Greece. Correspondence: Panayiotis P. Athanasoglou, Economic Research Department, Bank of Greece, 21 E. Venizelos Ave., 102 50 Athens, Greece, Tel. +30210-320 2449 Email: pathanasoglou@bankofgreece. 1. Introduction During the last two decades the banking sector has experienced worldwide major transformations in its operating environment. Both external and domestic factors have affected its structure and performance. Despite the increased trend toward bank disintermediation observed in many countries, the role of banks remains central in financing economic activity in general and different segments of the market in particular. A sound and profitable banking sector is better able to withstand negative shocks and contribute to the stability of the financial system. Therefore, the determinants of bank performance have attracted the interest of academic research as well as of bank management, financial markets and bank supervisors. The majority of studies on bank profitability, such as Short (1979), Bourke (1989), Molyneux and Thornton (1992), Demirguc-Kunt and Huizinga (2000) and Goddard et al. (2004), use linear models to estimate the impact of various factors that may be important in......

...June 02, 2014 MY Banking Sector SECTOR RESEARCH | Malaysia NEUTRAL Analyst Desmond Ch’ng, ACA (603) 2297 8680 (unchanged) Loan growth slows to 10% YoY    Industry loan growth moderated to 10.0% YoY in Apr 2014 from 10.2% YoY in Mar 2014. 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. 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...

...A. INTRODUCTION The term ‘customer’ of a bank is not defined by law. Ordinarily a person who has an account in a bank is considered its customer. There is no statutory definition of “customer”, and so one has to refer the decisions of the courts in order to discover the principle which determines whether or not a person is a customer. In the United States, customer means, ‘any person having an account with a banker or from whom a bank has agreed to collect items and includes a bank carrying an account with another bank’.The statutory protection under section 131 and 131A of the Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881, is available to a collecting banker only if the banker inter alia receives payment of a cheque or a draft for a customer. Though a customer is a very important person for a bank, he appears only once in law of Negotiable Instrument (i.e., in section 131 of the Negotiable Instruments Act) and even there only casually; he is neither defined nor explained. A customer of a banker need not necessarily be a person. A firm, joint stock Company, a society or any separate legal entity may be a customer. According to section 45-Z of the Banking Regulation Act, 1949, “Customer” includes a government department and a corporation incorporated by or under any law.2 Special types of customer means are those who are distinguished from other types of ordinary customers by some special features. Hence, they are called special types of customers. They are to be dealt with carefully......

...Resent trends of banking system in India 1. Introduction The economy can be divided in the entire spectrum of economic activity into the real and monetary sectors. The real sector is where production takes place while the monetary sector supports this production and in a way is the means to the end. We know and we accept the financial system is critical to the working of the rest of the economy. In fact, the Asian crisis of the nineties, or for that matter what happened in Latin America and Russia subsequently and also Dubai Crisis have shown how a fragile financial sector can wreak havoc on the rest of the economy. Therefore the banking sector is crucial and we want to express our views to explore how this sector can work in harmony with the real sector to achieve the desired objectives. The Banking sector has been immensely benefited from the implementation of superior technology during the recent past, almost in every nation in the world.
