Central Banks’ Response to the Current Financial Crisis – Between Costs and Benefits
Teodora Cristina Barbu,Iustina Boitan
International Journal of Economics and Financial Issues , 2012,
Abstract: Our study is inserted in the thematic area dedicated, during recent years, to the research on central banks’ response to financial crisis. The global financial crisis has outlined a series of weaknesses located at regulatory and supervisory activities’ level, causing major central banks to face a new operating environment, in which traditional monetary policy tools are ineffective (key interest rate close to zero) in restoring the financial markets’ proper functioning. The unconventional monetary policy measures, the dramatic fall of the key interest rate, the balance sheet structure modification and extension of collateral accepted by central banks are the main issues on which we focused our attention, to highlight the costs and benefits recorded by these institutions. All major central banks have implemented highly innovative, flexible facilities and the main beneficiaries have been the banking systems in their entirety.
Implications of the single supervisory mechanism on ECB's functions and on credit institutions' activity
Teodora Cristina BARBU,Iustina Alina BOITAN
Theoretical and Applied Economics , 2013,
Abstract: The European Commission's proposal launched on September 12, 2012 for conferring the European Central Bank extended powers in the field of Euro zone banking supervision has become a hotly debated topic across EU member states. Until now, there is still strong resilience of the EU countries outside the single currency area.The prospects for its practical implementation raised, however, a series of questions related to its technical feasibility. Our paper intends to shed light on some issues concerning the implications of the single monitoring mechanism on the traditional functions of the ECB, on the coexistence between supranational supervision and the national one, and on various facets of the impact that the new architecture of European banking supervision will have on the business of credit institutions, in terms of performance indicators, efficiency, risk and competition.

Abstract: Bank performance measurement, as an expression of banks’ ability to generate sustainable profits, is a topic of major interest, located in the core of all categories of participants involved in the banking business: banking supervisory authorities, rating agencies, shareholders, investors and analysts of banking activity. Recent developments in bank profitability during the global financial crisis have highlighted a number of limitations of traditional banking performance measurement indicators, in respect of their capacity to provide relevant, credible and genuine information related to credit institutions’ activity. In this article we intend to argue, by investigations at conceptual and quantitative level, the extent to which traditional indicators of bank profitability provide a comprehensive and real insight into the credit institutions’ financial performance. The empirical study applies the stress test methodology, through which is assessed the extent to which Romanian banking system‘s performance, represented by ROE, changes in the context of defining adverse, but plausible scenarios. Hence, it had been simulated ROE’s degree of response for three types of scenarios. We have applied both univariate stress tests (sensitivity analysis) in order to isolate the potential impact of each risk factor on bank profitability, and multivariate stress tests, which allow the simultaneous application of multiple shocks on risk factors. The results show the most important risk factors that adversely affect banking system’s profitability and the concrete value by which profitability is expected to decrease for each scenario analyzed.
Impact of Credit Restructuring on the Quality of Bank Asset Portfolio. A Cluster Analysis Approach
Nicolae Dardac,Teodora Cristina Barbu,Iustina Alina Boitan
Acta Universitatis Danubius : Oeconomica , 2011,
Abstract: In this paper we proposed an analysis of the financial crisis impact on the procedures formanagement of loan portfolios in several banking systems. Despite ample liquidity injectionprograms implemented by major central banks and government actions, credit risk remains a keychallenge of the current banking systems. On a medium term, the high percentage of bad loans hasbecome a structural vulnerability. To maintain an acceptable quality of loan portfolios and not todamage the prudential and profitability indicators, credit institutions in EU member states haveproceeded to apply various techniques for credit restructuring. The quantitative analysis carried out inthe last part of the paper revealed a relatively moderate granularity of banking systems considered, interms of capitalization, volume of bank reserves and net provisions, in response to the persistent trendof loan portfolio deterioration.
The necessity of operational risk management and quantification
Barbu Teodora Cristina,Olteanu (Puiu) Ana Cornelia,Radu Alina Nicoleta
Annals of the University of Oradea : Economic Science , 2008,
Abstract: Beginning with the fact that performant strategies of the financial institutions have programmes and management procedures for the banking risks, which have as main objective to minimize the probability of risk generation and the bank’s potential exposure, this paper wants to present the operational risk management and quantification methods. Also it presents the modality of minimum capital requirement for the operational risk. Therefore, the first part presents the conceptual approach of the operational risks through the point of view of the financial institutions exposed to this type of risk. The second part describes the management and evaluation methods for the operational risk. The final part of this article presents the approach assumed by a financial institution with a precise purpose: the quantification of the minimum capital requirements of the operational risk.
Challenges of the Knowledge Society , 2011,
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to assess to what extent the business model practiced by investment banks, before the beginning of the financial crisis, has influenced their performance indicators, and especially those who express shareholders' satisfaction. To this end, we have applied a nonparametric method, called Data Envelopment Analysis, which allows obtaining the efficiency scores for each financial institution considered. The sample included two pure investment banks, Lehman Brothers and Goldman Sachs, and seven international financial groups carrying out investment banking activities. The model tested assumed the maximization of selected output variables (ROE and the dividend distributed), by considering several input variables, meant to summarize the risk profile and costs arising from implementing a particular business model. The results obtained, in the form of high inefficiency scores, indicate that the business model of investment banks was not better performing than that applied by financial groups, because it failed to ensure a balance between ownership compensation and sustainable expansion of financial activity.
The Consolidation on Banking Supervision in the Context of a Pan European Banking System
Teodora Barbu,Georgeta Vintila
Theoretical and Applied Economics , 2007,
Abstract: The diversity of national banking systems in the European banking system and the absence of consolidated supervision creates the premises for a series of interrogations whose essence is the same: Is it possible to discuss about a Pan European Banking System? The starting point in answering this question was the efforts to create a single banking market, which took place in 1973-1999, and the impact of integration on the European Banking Industry. Among the most representative aspects, it must be emphasized the necessity of consolidating banking supervision at an European level, considering that the International Banking Community studies the problematic of banking regulations at a global level. The two dimensions of the prudential and European bank supervision device – the geographic and the institutional – demand the creation of a structural reform in order to ensure the functioning of a Pan European system of banking supervision and regulations. The considerations on the Consolidation of European Banking Supervision draws into discussion the Financial Supervision Authority which has generalized as an applicable model in numerous European countries and has been mentioned as an alternative of Pan European banking supervision. In the process of the integration of the banking sector, the Basel II Accord represents an opportunity in reaching a convergence of national regulations and practices in matters of risk management, considering that these actions are in line with the preoccupations of realizing a Pan European banking system. Thus, the creation of Pan European banking system involves actions in more directions: legal, institutional, operational meant to ensure the consolidation of banking supervision.
Is the Incidence of the Monetary Policy on the Mortgage Market Possible?
Teodora Barbu,Georgeta Vintila
Theoretical and Applied Economics , 2009,
Abstract: The article sets out to approach mortgage markets and their impact on the financial structure and on the financial stability. The synthesizing of studies done lead to the conclusion that the institutional characteristics of the mortgage market influence the monetary policy shocks on the prices of housing and consumption. In developed countries, transmission of such shocks is stronger because of mortgage markets mature and flexible. Regarding this aspect, there are significant divergences in the structure of the mortgage market between the main industrialized countries. Also, the reaction of central banks to the speculative bubbles on the mortgage markets is extremely reduced, thus formulating a series of interrogations related to the lack of concern of monetary authorities regarding the price of real assets.
The Emergence of Ethic Banks and Social Responsibility in Financing Local Development
Teodora Barbu,Georgeta Vintila
Theoretical and Applied Economics , 2007,
Abstract: The evaluation of the present offer of banking products and services in the developed countries as well in the emerging ones shows the extent to which they fulfill or not the principles specific to social responsibility and ethics in economics. Considering heightened competition, some institutions adopt new strategies based on the creation of new concepts where human finality is to replace economical finality. Thus, banking ethics and social responsibility are concepts which are found at the level of credit cooperative and ethical banks. Oriented mainly towards rural financing and financing social responsible projects, within the study, the two approaches complete and sustain each other.
