The Philippines Banking Market

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 26 maggio 2019

The “The Philippines Banking Market: 2019-2020 Outlook” report has been added to’s offering.This report provides a complete and detailed analysis of the banking sector for the Philippines. The researcher presents in-depth business intelligence in a standard format across countries and regions, providing a balanced mix between analysis and data.
The Philippines banking sector remains in a nascent stage of development, and most Filipinos tend to engage in financial activities using less formal channels such as pawnshops. Nonetheless, the banking sector has been expanding its services to encompass a growing proportion of the population; loans and deposits have been growing at CAGRs of 16.4% and 11.4% respectively from 2013 to 2017.Throughout this period of stellar growth, the quality of loans in the banking sector has increased with NPL ratios decreasing across most loan categories from 2013 to 2017. Despite these favourable factors, banks have also been prudent in managing their capital, and liquidity and capital adequacy ratios generally exceed the regulatory minimums imposed by the central bank.

La crescita dello “shadow banking”

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 28 febbraio 2019

Le banche stanno per andare in soffitta? Non è una battuta. Pochi crederebbero che nel mondo della finanza le banche non siano più i “number one”. Eppure lo conferma il rapporto “Global Shadow Banking Monitoring Report 2017” del Financial stability board (Fsb), il Consiglio per la stabilità finanziaria. Si ricordi che è l’organismo internazionale con il compito di monitorare il sistema finanziario mondiale per ridurre il rischio sistemico. In passato è stato presieduto anche da Mario Draghi. Secondo tale rapporto, alla fine del 2016 gli attivi finanziari globali totali ammontavano a 360.000 miliardi di dollari. Cinque volte e mezzo il Pil mondiale. Essi sono così suddivisi: 160.000 miliardi gestiti dagli organismi finanziari non bancari, 138.000 dalle banche, 26.000 dalle banche centrali e il resto da istituti finanziari pubblici. Gli organismi finanziari non bancari, cioè “gli enti e le attività dell’intermediazione del credito che operano fuori dal sistema bancario regolare”, sono considerati e chiamati dallo Fsb “shadow banking”, sistema bancario ombra. Secondo il Consiglio non sarebbe è una definizione spregiativa. Sta di fatto che essi manovrano cifre spaventose, se si confrontano con quelle del Pil mondiale. Per evidenziare tutta la fragilità e i rischi del sistema finanziario, è, inoltre, doveroso rilevare che non sono inclusi i noti derivati finanziari otc e altri prodotti speculativi, di cui più volte abbiamo denunciato la pericolosità. I non bancari comprendono le assicurazioni con 29.000 miliardi di dollari di attivi concentrati negli Usa e in Europa, i fondi pensione con 31.000 miliardi, il 60% dei quali in mano americana, e ben 100.000 miliardi dei cosiddetti “Other Financial Intermediaries” (OFI) che includono vari tipi di fondi d’investimento, hedge fund, holding finanziarie e altri organismi finanziari, spesso “molto fantasiosi” e speculativi. Circa la creazione del credito, però, le banche mantengono ancora il primato con 69.000 miliardi, pari al 77% del totale, lasciando molto indietro il settore dei citati OFI. Il che significa che questi ultimi sono attratti soprattutto da settori molto distanti da quelli concernenti l’economia reale. Nel frattempo gli OFI hanno registrato un grande aumento in Europa. Ad esempio, rappresentano il 92% di tutti gli attivi finanziari del Lussemburgo, il 76% dell’Irlanda e il 58% dell’Olanda. L’area euro conta detti attivi per 32.000 miliardi di dollari, superando gli Usa, dove, in realtà, stanno diminuendo, e di molto la Cina, dove, al contrario, è in atto una crescita straordinaria. All’interno degli OFI vi è un settore in continuo aumento che rappresenta ben 45.000 miliardi di attivi considerati molto rischiosi anche dallo Fsb. Si chiama “narrow measure of shadow banking”, un nome senza senso anche in inglese e impossibile da tradurre in italiano in modo comprensibile. Non è la prima volta che prodotti finanziari molto rischiosi vengono chiamati, volutamente, in modo stravagante e fuorviante. Secondo il Consiglio per la stabilità finanziaria, le operazioni “narrow measure” sono molto più rischiose in quanto utilizzano massicciamente la leva finanziaria, operano cioè con grandi numeri ma pochi capitali propri. Di conseguenza sono vulnerabili ai rischi di rinnovo delle posizioni e di estensione della scadenza (rollover risk) e a quelli di eventuali massicci ritiri di fondi per timore di insolvenza (run), in particolare quando si rendono dipendenti da finanziamenti di breve periodo. Sono esattamente le situazioni che si erano create alla vigilia della Grande Crisi del 2008 e che hanno provocato il crollo del sistema.Circa le citate operazioni “narrow measure” gli Usa sono ancora i primi con il 31%, seguiti dall’Europa con il 22% e dalla Cina con il 16%. E’ molto rilevante il fatto che le Isole Cayman, il “paradiso fiscale” per eccellenza, con 4.700 miliardi di attivi, rappresentano il 10% del totale! Nei passati 5 anni la quota del settore bancario si è andata riducendo di anno in anno, rimpiazzata da una crescente e sempre più ingombrante presenza dello shadow banking. La tendenza è stata ancor più forte in Europa. Comunque, resta sempre molto elevata l’interconnessione tra tutti i vari settori, bancari e non. Perciò permane il rischio di crisi sistemiche. Gli studi fatti dal Financial stability board sono encomiabili e di grande aiuto. Però, la velocità e le dimensioni degli attuali processi finanziari sono davvero straordinarie e ci impongono una domanda. Le autorità di controllo sono veramente capaci di governarli oppure tentano di inseguire queste evoluzioni finanziarie che, di fatto, finiscono col dettare i movimenti e le regole di comportamento dei mercati e dei loro principali attori? E’ un dubbio inquietante che lascia sconcertati. (Mario Lettieri già sottosegretario all’Economia e Paolo Raimondi economista)

The Banking Industry in South Africa 2018

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 7 settembre 2018

The South African banking sector which has total assets of R5.14-trillion, remains highly concentrated with the five largest banks holding 91% of total assets as of 31 December 2017.While the country’s big banks dominate, the sector is also diversified with 36 South African banking institutions registered with the Reserve Bank and 30 foreign banks with approved representative offices in South Africa. There are over 6,000 credit providers registered with the National Credit Regulator.The banking landscape is changing rapidly as banks face increasing competition from technology-based financial services – from newly established banks to retailers offering mobile transactional banking accounts.Competition coming from newly-licensed commercial banks and growing credit granting from other credit providers is likely to encourage the big four banks to place increasing emphasis on growing customer numbers with innovative product offerings, especially to attract lower-income earners.Competition from newly established Discovery Bank, Bank Zero and TymeDigital, which aim to disrupt the sector, may force big banks to intensify efforts to modernise technology platforms to satisfy customers’ demand.

Professionisti del banking: I più richiesti e i più pagati

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 16 giugno 2017

banca-ditalia“Negli ultimi anni il processo di digitalizzazione ha pervaso il mondo bancario: per rimanere al passo con i tempi gli istituti di credito hanno subito una profonda metamorfosi e ciò ha condizionato inevitabilmente la forza lavoro del settore.” È quanto si evince dalla lettura dei dati della Salary Guide 2017, l’indagine annuale di Hays, condotta su un campione di oltre 250 aziende e 1.400 professionisti, che fotografa l’andamento del mercato del lavoro in Italia.Per far fronte alle nuove sfide tecnologiche, le aziende che operano nel settore Banking stanno infatti focalizzando la ricerca su figure altamente specializzate. Tra i più richiesti, i profili con competenze in ambito Risk e Compliance management, oltre ai professionisti di Internal Audit, poiché ricoprono un ruolo da attori principali nell’evoluzione del settore e nel continuo mutamento di regolamenti e direttive dettate da BCE e Banca d’Italia. Non registrano flessioni i professionisti dalla forte anima commerciale, in particolare avranno maggiori possibilità di inserimento quei profili esperti nella gestione di grandi patrimoni. Al contrario, la parabola occupazionale è discendente per tutti coloro che operano all’interno delle filiali classiche, ad eccezion fatta sempre per le figure commerciali.Secondo la Hays Salary Guide, inoltre, i responsabili delle risorse umane in ambito Banking stanno selezionando per lo più professionisti con competenze tecniche molto specifiche e capaci di reagire proattivamente alle novità di un mercato in continua evoluzione. In un contesto sempre più “global”, gli interlocutori risultano dislocati molto spesso fuori dai confini nazionali: per questo motivo è essenziale la conoscenza della lingua inglese. Richiesta la laurea in Economia, Scienze Bancarie o un MBA.
Per quanto riguarda le politiche retributive, il gap tra i salari top e quelli minimi rimane consistente. Le aree che continuano ad offrire le retribuzioni più alte sono il Corporate & Investiment Banking e il Private Banking. Tra i professionisti più pagati*, si piazzano ai primi posti i Business Partner dell’area Private Banking e le figure Analyst in ambito Corporate & Investiment Banking con una retribuzione annua di 100.000 €, seguiti dai profili Sales specializzati in Asset Management con una retribuzione di 95.000 € all’anno.Nei prossimi mesi, è prevista una certa stabilità del mercato che influenzerà positivamente le domanda di professionisti del settore

Why isn’t same day banking catching on?

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 7 maggio 2014

bankingThere has been a buzz for a while about same day banking, yet is doesn’t seem to quite catch on, why? Let’s start with what same day banking is. Let’s say you own a store, restaurant or another business where a part of your daily revenue is cash. You want that cash in your bank account as quickly as possible. The sooner it gets into your bank account, the better cash flow and the more interest for you. Same day banking technology  moves the money from the safe in your business to the bank account, usually the same day. In today’s reality, the money is picked up by a company and transported to a cash center. Once there, the cash is counted and credited to your bank account, a procedure that takes a day or two at best. This means that you, the business owner, who got paid by a customer on a Monday won’t see the money on the account until Friday. That doesn’t make for great cash flow, does it? A smarter way of doing this is to credit the money in your safe to the bank account. There are solutions in the market for this. Our Presidio solution is one. All cash is tracked and kept safe until it is picked up by the transport company. The information stored in the software could easily be transferred to stakeholders such as banks and transporters and be credited while still in the safe.This is not the case today though and the question is why. My bet is interest. By moving money quicker between institutions the opportunity of earnings on interest is diminished for the various stakeholders. So there is a natural inertia in the change process as the stakeholders try to find new ways of recreating the value they lose as the interest disappears.There is no doubt that same day banking is in the best interest of you, the business owner. And I think it’s time to put the pressure on banks and other stakeholders to accommodate their customers – you – in a more efficient way.So which bank will be the first to move? Are there any trailblazers out there or is status quo as good as it gets? (Magnus Bäckström, Vice President Solution Management)

Banking data transfers

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 8 maggio 2010

The Delegation of the LIBE Committee with representation of all political Groups that took place in Washington DC between 28-30 April 2010 had meetings with US administration representatives[1] and members of the US Congress in relation to the envisaged agreement between the European Union and the United States of America to make available to the United States Treasury Department financial messaging data to prevent and combat terrorism and terrorist financing.Throughout the meetings the Members noted a strong spirit of cooperation and a willingness to engage in a constructive, innovative and determined way in order to strike a sound and mutual acceptable agreement.Issues such as the determination to fight terrorism while upholding fundamental rights and the conviction that the framework of transatlantic cooperation for counter-terrorism purposes should be further developed and improved have also been raised. On behalf of the delegation, Parliament’s rapporteur Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert (ALDE, NL) reiterated the need to consider a twin-track approach which differentiates between, on the one hand, the strict safeguards to be included in the envisaged EU-US agreement, and, on the other, the fundamental longer-term policy decisions that the EU must address.The delegation also recalled that the resolution on the Recommendation from the Commission to the Council to authorise the opening of negotiations for the above mentioned agreement is to be voted on 5 May 2010. The delegation expressed its trust that the EU and US will reach a strong, mutually beneficial agreement that will serve as a testament to the vital EU-US cooperation in counter-terrorism.
