(MGT411) - Money and Banking Assignment No 2 Discussion and Solutions Due Date: July 31, 2014

Learning Objectives: This activity aims to enable the students to get an understanding about
the commercial banks’ objectives.
 Maximizing Profitability
 Minimizing Liquidity Risk
 Contradictory nature of these objectives
Learning Outcomes: After going through this activity, the students would be able to
understand the conflicting objectives of commercial banks and how banks can operate by
minimizing such mismatch.
The two-fold objective for any commercial bank is to “Maximize Liquidity (for depositors)”
and “Maximize Profitability (for shareholders)”. But there is a trade-off between them, if one
increases the other decreases.
For liquidity, if a bank holds high reserves then it will have less investment, earn low profit and
low dividend for its share holders.
For profit maximization, if a bank keeps on investing its funds, then it will be difficult to meet
the cash withdrawals of depositors.
Now days, banks face ups and downs in meeting these objectives. A good bank should focus on
“portfolio management”: how the assets and liabilities are to be managed so that the profit
should be maximized and how to bring together these two inconsistent objectives. This need
experienced banking professionals to analyze situation, focus on objectives and opt a portfolio:
balanced & diversified.
In Pakistan, Faysal bank and UBL are two of the commercial banks.
Faysal Bank Limited was incorporated in Pakistan on 1994 as a public Limited company. Faysal
Bank has more than 256 branches in over 80 cities. Faysal Bank ambition is to provide par
excellence services to its customers while meeting their financial needs.
UBL was incorporated in 1959.UBL has kept pace with the changing needs of times. Keeping
the tradition of innovative alive, it introduced Pakistan’s first credit card, the UNICARD and
left its mark by launching the Pak Rupees Travelers cheques.

students lets start discussion

Please Discuss here about this assignment.Thanks

Our main purpose here discussion not just Solution

We are here with you hands in hands to facilitate your learning and do not appreciate the idea of copying or replicating solutions.

First Thing we need is to identify the Deposits and Cash in hand ITEMS which are to be used to Calculate the Reserve Ratio

Deposits are :-This  number expresses  the  amount that  the  bank  would have  to  pay out if  all  of  the  bank's  clients  wanted to  withdraw  all  of  their  money  immediately............ If we interpret this statement i would mean that it is the liability of bank which it would have to pay all ways.

Cash  the  Bank  has on hand :- This  includes  the  money  in  the  bank's  safe,  the  bank's  registers  and  any other physical location  to  which the  bank  personnel have  immediate  access.......... and meaning of this statement would be that Cash at hand of bank, its reserves and balances with other banks.

When these things Identified if Correctly

(NOTE : TO all STUDENTS if any thing which i have not mentioned kindly mentioned it with relation to above definitions and discuss to clear the doubt ness)

Now calculation of First UBL Bank:-

Taking items from its financial statement (Assets and Liabilities)

Deposits which bank has to pay Includes Items

-----Deposits and other Accounts (827,847,738)

Cash the Bank has on Hand Includes Items

---- Cash and balances with treasury banks (88,520,725)

----- Balances with other Banks (25,867,497)
