Courses In This Course

Banks play a vital role in both the economy and society as a whole. This was demonstrated in no uncertain terms by the global financial crisis when their stability – or instability in this case – had very real effects not only on the financial markets, but the broader real economy and the individuals and entities that form part of it.

 

The pivotal position of banks revolves around the importance of “moving money” and banks’ role as intermediaries in this process. But the fundamental nature of their role as intermediaries in the financial system should not mask the fact that banks are highly complex institutions, with many interrelated parts.

 

Objectives

This course provides an overview of the various banking areas and institutions, covering topics such as the structure of the different sectors, the product offerings, and the drivers of profitability. It is designed in particular for new recruits to the banking industry, but more senior personnel seeking to better understand or refresh their knowledge on the role and function of modern banking institutions may also find the course useful.

  •    BUSINESS OF RETAIL BANKING

    Overview

    The retail banking sector is perhaps the least glamorous part of the banking world. However, retail lending can often be more important to a bank than the corporate equivalent. Furthermore, for the vast majority of people, retail banking is banking. Where are salaries paid to? Where are the ATMs? Who is going to extend credit when somebody wants to buy a house or a car? The answers to these questions may not seem exciting, but they emphasize how retail banking contains many key strands in the financial web of sophisticated modern economies.

     

    This course looks at the role of modern retail banks. The key issues addressed include the structure of the retail banking sector, the product offerings, the drivers of profitability, and the role of regulation.
