A linear programming model for bank balance sheet management

Guven, S
Persentili, E
Bank balance-sheet management which involves the determination of the size and composition of a bank's assets and liabilities over a multiperiod planning horizon is one of the most prominent issues in bank strategic planning. Not only management policy choices, but legal restrictions and minimum safety requirements, dictated by the economic and political environment operated in, mean a balance has to be struck between the conflicting objectives of profitability, liquidity and risk. Bank balance-sheet management is further complicated by the fact that decisions made at any point in time affect profits, liquidity and risk, not only at the time they are made, but in the periods that follow. This paper discusses a multiperiod Linear programming model constructed for a commercial bank in Turkey, that takes into consideration this systematic relationship in the legal, financial and institutional setup of Turkey over the period 1987-1990. Sensitivity analysis results demonstrate the relevance of the model for informed policy choice, and the use of the model as a planning tool. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd.

Bilgin, Gozde; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; ÖZORHON ORAKÇAL, BELİZ (2022-11-01)
Project portfolio management requires a systematic process that comprises assessment of portfolio risk and expected profitability, as well as strategic fit of individual projects with company objectives. After a needs analysis based on literature findings and surveys with experts, in this study, a process model and a tool, COPPMAN (COnstruction Project Portfolio MANagement), were developed to support project portfolio decisions in construction companies. COPPMAN was developed in collaboration with construct...
A classification problem of credit risk rating investigated and solved by optimisation of the ROC curve
Kurum, Efsun; Yildirak, Kasirga; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (2012-09-01)
Estimation of probability of default has considerable importance in risk management applications where default risk is referred to as credit risk. Basel II (Committee on Banking Supervision) proposes a revision to the international capital accord that implies a more prominent role for internal credit risk assessments based on the determination of default probability of borrowers. In our study, we classify borrower firms into rating classes with respect to their default probability. The classification of fir...
A decision support tool for feasibility assessment of hydro electrical power plant projects
Ercan, Noyan; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Department of Civil Engineering (2011)
The objective of this thesis is to develop a decision support tool to assess the feasibility of a hydro electrical power plant (HEPP) investment option by estimating its profitability under various scenarios. The decision support tool may help the decision makers to understand critical parameters that affect the internal rate of return (IRR) of a HEPP investment, create realistic scenarios by assigning different values to these parameters and monitor profitability under various scenarios. The information an...
A Decision support tool for contingency and profit analysis of international construction portfolios
Özçelik, Nizami; Sönmez, Rifat; Department of Civil Engineering (2015)
In construction sector, estimations of contingency and profit amounts are generally based on experience and intuition. However, the relation between the desired profit amount and the risk undertaken is not considered usually during profit setting. In addition, most of the studies in the literature have been focused on a single project’s contingency rate, but many construction companies carry out several projects simultaneously. Contingency-profit analysis for portfolios of projects is very important to eval...
An Application of the Black Litterman model in Borsa İstanbul using analysts’ forecasts as views
Adaş, Cansu; Güner, Zehra Nuray; Danışoğlu, Seza; Department of Financial Mathematics (2016)
The optimal number of stocks to include in a portfolio in order to achieve the maximum diversification benefit has been one of the issues in which investors have focused on since Markowitz introduced fundamentals of the Modern Portfolio Theory. Each stock included in an investor's portfolio decreases the portfolio risk, while increasing the transaction costs incurred by the investor to create this portfolio. In this thesis, the size of a well-diversified portfolio consisting of stocks included consistently ...
