This subject provides a detailed examination of the fundamentals of the management, risk, regulation and operation and performance of a commercial bank. The subject examines the theoretical concepts underpinning the operation of commercial banking in the form of financial intermediation and the unique role of banks in the economy. The structure of the financial system and problems posed by managing commercial banks in today's environment are given real-time practical applications that assess the performance of financial institutions from a creditor's, investor's and regulator's viewpoint. While the focus of the course is commercial banks, that is regulator registered banking institutions, a number of the concepts covered also have suitable application to other non-bank institutions. Students get to apply their knowledge in multiple assignments that are based on the analysis of real financial institutions and their risk exposures emanating from the lending and deposit-taking operations.
