Description

Starting in the '80s, banks have become huge financial supermarkets offering a wide range of different services and products. Employees in these large banks have developed specialized expertise in the area in which they decide to make a career. Along with rapid developments in information technology this has resulted in large IT departments staffed by people without any particular financial and banking education.

For example: How was it possible that the 1929 financial crisis was repeated by the 2008 credit crisis? The outrage and confusion illustrates the knowledge gap of understanding what banks do, what happens on financial markets and what is needed to prevent a derailment of the financial sector.

Since 2005, I train people in the financial sector and I have created this E-book to bridge the basic knowledge gap. Besides clarifying graphs, the book is illustrated by Bas Kohler's cartoons. Also, you can use the selected internet links to access short video's, specific information sources and the central bank game.

Example of the topics covered by this E-book are:
•Money types and the role of Central Banks;
•Different bank types and their activities;
•The 3 financial product categories to trade capital, foreign currencies and risk
•Financial market products trading: how, why and by whom;
•Dealing room activities;
•Types of derivative products and why they are used;
•The source of the 2008 financial crisis and how it can be prevented;

À propos de l'auteur

After obtaining my masters degree Business Economics (MSc) at Erasmus University Rotterdam in 1988, I have gained expertise in treasury, banking, finance and project management. In 1998 I started my own financial consultancy company: Hecht Consult. Since 2005 my major activity is to train participants who work for Banks and (Corporate) Treasury Departments. I know from practical experience that finance is not rocket science and you do not need to be a mathematical wizard to understand finance. My training method targets to strip complex financial topics to the basic structure. The basic structure will support participants to understand and use finance in their future work practice. I have trained hundreds of participants, and many have different backgrounds and finance experience - for example: chartered accountants, controllers, journalists, consultants, IT professionals, and University graduates.

  • Net Interest Margin Income. For many bank this is the main source of income, sometimes up to approx. 70% of total bank income.

  • A way for banks to generate income is to debit the payers account today and transfer the money to the beneficiary account one or a few days later. The bank can invest the money for the short term and earn interest. This is called interest on Float.

  • Commercial bank wants to offer a broad range of bank services to its clients. Thus they do retail, wholesale and investment banking and have a funding base of savings derived retail and corporate clients.

  • Market making is high volume trading: buying and selling of financial assets at high frequency to benefit from the spread – the difference between the bid and offer price.

  • Interest differences on savings accounts are influenced by competition be- tween banks, bank management strategy, the term of the deposit and the funding position of a bank on financial markets.

PREVIEW

There is something big happening in the world of finance that impacts our economies and welfare. Most of us do not realize the extent of what’s going on. But it’s not so complicated: Finance is not rocket science. After working in finance from 1990, I train people who work in the finance industry and specialized so as to explain ‘complex’ finance since 2005.

Starting in the '80s, banks have become huge financial supermarkets offering a wide range of different services and products. Employees in these large banks have developed specialized expertise in the area in which they decide to make a career. Along with rapid developments in information technology this has resulted in large IT departments staffed by people without any particular financial and banking knowledge.

You may like banks or not, but banks have been and still are very important to our modern society as key intermediators in the facilitation of economic development. The global financial crisis of 2008 became a turning point in the banking industry. We use banks almost every day, for example to make payments. But what do you really know about banks? How was it possible that banks caused a major financial market and economic crisis?

After a short introduction about money, I will explain in Part I the core activities of banks. In Part II, I
