In this subject, students learn about the principles of managing a financial institution. These principles are applied in the context of banks, but have wider applicability to non-bank financial institutions. The subject introduces students to the banking business model, the principles of asset-liability management and cash flow management, as well as strategic planning in response to prudential supervision and an increasingly dynamic and complex banking environment. The different types of bank risk are described and key hedging strategies are discussed. Students develop an understanding of the complexity of the financial system and the problems faced by contemporary financial institutions. They get to apply their knowledge in a bank simulation study that requires decision-making in an uncertain economy with competition.
