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.


An empirical study on early warning systems for banking sector
Boyraz, Mustafa Fatih; Gaygısız Lajunen, Esma; Department of Economics (2012)
Early Warning Systems (EWSs) for banking sectors are used to measure occurrence risks of banking crises, generally observed with a rundown of bank deposits and widespread failures of financial institutions. In countries with a small number of banks, for example Turkey with 48 banks (BDDK, 2011), every bank may be considered to have a systematic importance since the failure of any individual bank may carry a potential threat to lead to a banking crisis. Taking into account this fact the present study focuses...
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...

Banks are considered as the marginal and sophisticated investors of financial markets. This is evident in the Haddad and Sraer (2020) study that examines the US government bond excess returns. This study extends the Haddad/Sraer analysis to the Turkish government bond market. According to the forecasting results, exposure ratio provides explanatory power over bond excess returns, especially for longer maturities. On the other hand, output gap and industrial growth present strong in-sample forecasting power ...
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...
An Application of the Black Litterman model in Borsa İstanbul using analysts’ forecasts as views

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 ...
