Financial services:

  • are fundamental to every economic activity in the world
  • help create jobs
  • lend and invest in community development projects
  • help businesses grow, and
  • provide consumer credit

The financial services sector is a significant contributor to international income and employment, with many millions directly employed in the financial services sector and several million more in sector-related services.

Financial services help with the making, investment and management of money for both people and organisations; for example, trading shares in the stock market or helping people save money for a rainy day.

Investment securities are marketable securities held by a bank in its portfolio of balance sheet assets. Investment securities, along with bank loans, are the principal source of bank earnings and generally serve two key functions – as a source of bank liquidity or funding to meet loan demand or customers’ needs for cash and as an additional source of earnings from the capital gains realized when portfolio securities are sold.

Commercial banks engage in the following activities:

  • Processing payments via telegraphic transfer, EFTPOS, internet banking, or other
  • Issuing bank drafts and bank cheques
  • Accepting money on term deposit
  • Lending money by overdraft, instalment loan, or other
  • Providing documentary and steady guarantees, performance bonds, securities underwriting commitments and other forms of off-balance sheet exposure
  • Cash management and treasury, and
  • Merchant banking and private equity financing

Traditionally, large commercial banks also underwrite bonds and make markets in currency, interest rates, and credit-related securities, but today large commercial banks usually have an investment bank arm that is involved in the aforementioned activities.
