Part 1. Application for Credit

Banker: Our discount committee is still discussing your application for credit. I wonder if you’d mind giving us some more information about certain items shown on your balance sheet.

Customer: Not at all.

B.: Is the mortgage on your fixed assets being amortized?

C.: Yes. We’re making semi-annual payment on this obligation.

B.: Your balance sheet show some indebtedness. Are any of your assets pledged as security?

C.: No. That’s just an open note.

B.: Would your company be willing to pledge part of its current assets as collateral security to our loan?

C.: We wouldn’t object to that. Part of this money will be used to retire preset debts and part to expand our operations. Then we can immediately being to liquidate this new liability.

B.: I think we’d better prefer that arrangement

^ Part 2. Granting the Loan on an Open Note

Builder: I received your notice that my note is due. I can pay it off now, but there is a piece of land right next to my property that I’d like to buy.

Banker: I don’t remember your situation exactly. Are your present holding free of encumbrance?

Bu.: My real estate is clear. But there’s a chattel mortgage on my construction equipment.

Ba.: Has this land you want to buy been appraised?

Bu.: Yes. It belongs to an estate and was appraised by order of the court. They estimated its value at $20000.

Ba.: Can it be bought for that figure!

Bu.: I think so. I’d like to make them that offer.

Ba.: Would you consider giving us a trust deed to secure your present note plus the additional funds you’ll need?

Bu.: I might. But I’d thought that my net worth is high enough that I could borrow the amount on my open note.

Ba.: Well, in that case, would your wife agree to be a co-signer?

Bu.: I’m sure she would, because title to the property will be in both our names.

Ba.: Well, it seems to me that you have enough equity in your property for us to make the loan on an open note.

Applications for Loans

Banks make their profits by lending the money which customers deposit with them to others who need it for personal or business reasons. Most people need more money than they have currently available at some time in their lives.

To be a borrower you must be a customer of the bank because the money will be lent to you through a bank account. There are two ways in which you may borrow. The first, and easy, is to spend more money than you have in your current account – to overdraw. The second, and the normal way of borrowing larger amounts or for a long period of time is the loan.

If a manager permits an overdraft on current account he is likely to set a limit to the size of the overdraft and may stipulate a date by which the account is back in credit. Businesses whose payments and receipts are often irregular will frequently need to use overdraft facilities and they are often granted to private customers as well particularly when the manager knows that regular payments are made directly into the account.

If a loan is granted it will be a fixed sum immediately available for a fixed period of time. The principal and the interest on it may all become due for payment at the end of that period but for personal loans it is common to arrange that the loan and interest are repaid in equal regular instalments over the period of the loan. A separate account is opened to record the repayments as they are made.

Whether you are seeking money for business or personal reasons there are a number of things that the manager will want to know before he is prepared to grant your request. The obvious facts will be the amount that you seek and the arrangements for re-payment that you are able to suggest. You need to tell him something about the purpose of the loan, a business loan is likely to help you make profits out of which the loan can be repaid with interest and he will wish to judge for himself whether or not this is likely. Personal loans usually have to be repaid out of an income which will not get any bigger and the manager will be particularly anxious to ensure that you are not being too optimistic. In deciding this he will be considerably assisted by his knowledge of you and his estimate of your character.

Sometimes people do not ask for enough money because they are anxious about the burden of the repayments. The manager will be wise enough to try and ensure that you will have sufficient amount of money to do what you want to do. Finally we will consider whether or not you really will be able to repay and what kind of security you can offer against the possibility that you do not repay. In the case of a business the manager may well want to see well prepared, relevant documents such as profit and loss accounts and balance sheets for the most recent years. He would also ask about the expected return from the use of the money and want to see some figures upon which you have based your calculations. For a business good security might be one or more of the assets of the business while personal loans are often secured by such things as life insurance policies on which the bank is making regular payment for you or the deeds of your house.

Bank Investments

The investment policy of a bank is based upon the reconciliation of two conflicting aims. On the one hand the bank wants to make as much profit as it can and for this reason it must take the risks of lending money. On the other hand its funds belong to its depositors and must be available whenever they wish to make withdrawals.

There are two things that the bank must therefore do. First, it must keep a proportion of its assets in the form of cash to met demands. The amount that this needs to be varies very little from one bank to another or from one day to another and experience suggests that it is about six percent. As a cushion against unexpected demands a further proportion of funds is invested at low rates of return in highly liquid lending mostly to firms in the money and capital markets.

The second thing that the bank must do is to ensure that the investments it chooses are safe. This also means that they are relatively low yielding since high yields are associated with risk and with lending for long periods of time. Much of a bank’s investment is in short and medium term government and local government bonds. They yield certain incomes and are readily saleable should the occasion demand.

Advances by a bank to its customers are the least liquid of their assets since there are few borrowers who could repay a loan at very short notice. However, they are also the most profitable of them yielding the highest rate of return. Advances to customers are likely to account for more than two thirds of the banks investment portfolio although this will vary on a day to day basis since overdrafts are the most common form of advance and are not immediately controllable by the bank.

In general banks do not lend to industry for long periods of time or for investment projects. They regard themselves as providing working capital rather than fixed capital.

Types of Banking Institutions

Student: What type of bank is this?

Banker: We’re a commercial bank.

S.: Does that mean that your services are limited?

B.: To some extent. For instance, we can’t offer the fiduciary services that a trust company can.

S.: What are they?

B.: Well, they have to do with the administration of trust and estates.

S.: Suppose I wanted to buy or sell some securities. Does your bank handle such transactions?

B.: Yes, through our brokerage house.

S.: Is your broker a member of the stock exchange?

B.: Yes.

S.: This is a state bank, isn’t it?

B.: That’s right.

S.: Do you offer fewer services that a national bank?

B.: No. In general, the only difference is that a state bank gets its charter from the state it’s in, and the national bank gets its charter from the federal government in Washington, D.C.

S.: Are there banks that don’t offer regular commercial services?

B.: Oh, yes. For example Savings and Loan Associations and the Federal Land Banks are only lending institutions.

S.: Would you say a savings and loan association is a bank?

B.: No. I’d rather call it a financial institution.

S.: How about a credit union?

B.: That’s not really a bank, either.

S.: And a finance company is something entirely different.

B.: Yes.

Types of Banking Institutions

The reason for which the Bank of England was founded in 1694 was to look after the Government’s debt, commonly called the National Debt, and this is still a most important function. A large proportion of the debt is made up of Government bonds, that is pieces of paper stating that the holder has subscribed such-and-such a sum of money and is entitled to so much interest per year. Two world wars have helped to swell the issue of bonds to some $ 40,000 million. Another sizable slice of debt is in the form of Treasury bills which are rather like bonds with a very short life span before the Government buys them back again and so repays the loan. Their purpose is to provide the government with day-to-day money to cover the inevitable gaps which occur between its disbursements, e.g. on such things as unemployment benefit and its receipts from taxation. A third type of debt is the group of National Savings Securities, of which ordinary Post Office (now National Savings Bank) accounts and Premium Bonds are perhaps the best-known examples.

The Bank of England is the ultimate source from which the general public can obtain cash. Other English banks used to issue their own notes, but now they all use the Bank of England notes. Scottish banks have continued to issue their own, but it is an expensive undertaking, and is closely controlled by the central bank in England.

The Bank also looks after the bank account of the Government just like an ordinary bank does for its customers. Into this account go all tax receipts and any other transfers of money from the various banks, and out of it go all payments.

Because all the important institutions in the City maintain accounts at the Bank, transfers of money between them and the Government, which go on every day, are made very easily. The Bank merely debits one account and credits another. The Bank also holds accounts for important international institutions like the World Bank, for just over a hundred central banks and also for some ordinary foreign banks, making a total of nearly two hundred accounts.

The Exchange Equalisation Account is the name of the fund in which are held the gold and foreign currency reserves of the country. The managers of the fund have the task of intervening from time to time in the otherwise free market for foreign currency, so as to influence the price of the pound in line with Government policy, or simply to try to maintain a reasonable orderly market.

The pound is not the only currency whose price has to be carefully controlled. Most of the major world currencies have the same problems, and all greatly benefit from international cooperation. Dealing with other central banks and managing money on an international scale has become an important side of the Bank’s work. Every month the Governor flies to Basle to spend a week-end in conference with his opposite numbers from the central banks of other western industrial countries.

The object of the bank’s management in the monetary field is to support the Government’s activities in other fields, e.g. taxation policy, export promotion and so on. The methods of control used by the Bank are based on a system in which money available to be borrowed should be rationed by price, not by orders from the Bank or The Treasury.

The Battery of instruments of control the bank has may be summarized as follows:

    1. ^ Suggestion and request. From time to time the Bank will make suggestions to the other institutions in the City, indicating the policy the authorities intend to pursue. If they want specific action, the Government makes a “request” like the following:

“Notice to banks.

All banks and finance houses are asked not to provide either loans to person or check trading facilities for the purchase of…”

    1. ^ Open market operations. This is the name given to the activities of the Bank in the financial market for control purposes. The point is that by its interventions the Bank can influence markets to move in the directions which it desires.

    2. Special deposits and supplementary deposits. From time to time, the Government may wish to reduce the amount of money that people can borrow in order to reduce the amount they spend. An effective way of doing this is to reduce what the banks have available foe lending, and this is done by requiring them to deposit more money at the Bank of England in special accounts from which it cannot be withdrawn until the Bank says so.
