An automated teller machine (ATM),is a telecommunications devices used to store and dispense cash, allow account holders access to accountsand to perform a variety of financial transactions including transfer of funds, payments, and cash advances on credit cards. A customer is identified by inserting a plastic ATM card with a magnetic stripe or chip that contains a unique card number and security information. Authentication is done by having the customer enter a personal identification number (PIN). ATMs are also popular when traveling as it makes it easy to withdraw money in a local currency and effect payments for goods and services in other countries. The bank provides the exchange rate when settling transactions. About half of the ATMs in the U.S. are operated by financial institutions. The other half are operated by independent sales organizations.
Consumers use online banking to check balances, pay bills and transfer funds. Banks that provide online banking can reduce processing costs and provide a wide range of services to customers 24 hours day from anywhere.While most traditional banks offer online banking, some banks are only available to customers online (no branches). Ally bank is a leading example.Online banking as also allowed non-banks the ability to offer banking services to their customers. Allstate bank is an example of a non-bank offering financial services online.
Virtual banks are banks without bricks; they exist entirely on the Internet, where they offer pretty much the same range of services and adhere to the same federal regulations as your corner bank.Virtual banks pass the money they save on overhead along to you in the form of higher yields, lower fees and more generous account thresholds. Advantages of online bankingConvenience: banking is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and just a mouse click away.Ubiquity: You can log on from anywhere, instantly to your online bank and take care of business.Transaction speed: Online banks execute and confirm transactions at or quicker than ATM processing speeds.Efficiency: You can access and manage all of your bank accounts, including IRAs, CDs, even securities, from one secure site.Effectiveness: Many online banking sites now offer sophisticated tools, including account aggregation, stock quotes, rate alerts and portfolio managing programs to help you manage all of your assets more effectively. Most are also compatible with money managing programs such as Quicken and Microsoft Money.Disadvantages of online bankingBecause they have no ATM machines, virtual banks typically charge the same surcharge that your brick-and-mortar bank would if you used another bank's automated teller. Many virtual banks won't accept deposits via ATM; you'll have to either deposit the check by mail or transfer money from another account. Start-up may take time: In order to register for your bank's online program, you will probably have to provide ID and sign up via the mail.Learning curve: Banking sites can be difficult to navigate at first. Bank site changes: Even the largest banks periodically upgrade their online programs, adding new features in unfamiliar places.
The issuing bank (such as Chase) funds the transactions, and the card association (like Visa) processes them. Issuing banks are the financial institutions that issue credit cards.They lend us the money we charge on our card, and then we pay them back at the end of the month. If we default on our credit card bill, the issuing bank must suffer the loss (though we asconsumers will suffer a lower credit rating). Card issuers also set the terms of our credit card agreements, like the APR and other fees. Issuing banks can be large, national institutions or smaller, local banks, or even credit unions. 90% of credit card accounts in the U.S. are issued by five banks: JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Bank of America, Capital One, and HSBC.Card associations process the credit card transactions. They are responsible for setting the transaction terms and fees for merchants and the card-issuers. Visa and MasterCard are the two major examples of card associations.Card associations are actually cooperatives comprised of thousands of issuing banks. For example, Citigroup owns 9.5% of MasterCard, Chase owns 8.5%, and HSBC and Bank of America each own 5.1%. Familiar Card association brands include Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Diner's Club, and JCB. Visa, MasterCard and American Express issuers co-brand with their card association.
A Credit rating agency is a company that assigns credit ratings for issuers of certain types of debt obligations as well as the debt instruments themselves. In some cases, the servicers of the underlying debt are also given ratings.In most cases, the issuers of securities are companies, special purpose entities, state and local governments, non-profit organizations, or national governments issuing debt-like securities (i.e., bonds) that can be traded on a secondary market. A credit rating for an issuer takes into consideration the issuer's credit worthiness (i.e., its ability to pay back a loan), and affects the interest rate applied to the particular security being issued.
A Credit Bureau is a company that collects information from various sources and provides consumer credit information on individual consumers (e.g. individuals' borrowing and bill paying habits) for a variety of uses. This helps lenders assess credit worthiness, the ability to pay back a loan, and can affect the interest rate and other terms of a loan. Interest rates are not the same for everyone, but instead can be based on risk-based pricing, a form of price discrimination based on the different expected risks of different borrowers, as set out in their credit rating. Consumers with poor credit repayment histories or court adjudicated debt obligations like tax liens or bankruptcies will pay a higher annual interest rate than consumers who don’t have these factors
Term loans – Loans for a specific time period, where the principal and interest is repaid at the end of the term. Used to finance a variety of business needs or activities.Working Capital loans – Provided by banks and non-banks that specialize in providing businesses with this sort of product. A loan whose purpose is to finance everyday operations of a company.Mortgage loans – Provided by banks and mortgage loan originators (see the mortgage banking course for more details). Frequently this is used to finance construction of commercial buildings and offices.Equipment Financing –Loans that are used to finance the purchase of specific types of equipment, which may be converted to a term loan and paid for by the economic use of the equipment. Banks generally secure the loan with the equipment title.Trade Finance – The processes of money management, banking and investment to facilitate the movement of trade between countries. These processes include importers, exporters, financers, insurers and service providers.
Customer starts a transaction at the merchant’s businessThe merchant’s payment device contacts a gateway provider to reach the merchant bank’s processorThe processing service, then connects to the credit card network, which in tern communicates with the customer’s bank to determine if funds are available for the purchase transaction, if funds are available, the transaction is approved and the routing is reversed.The merchant then completes the transaction and the process occurs a second time to transfer funds from the customer’s account to the merchant’s accounts.All of this happens is mere seconds, from just about anywhere in the world.
Trade financing has a number of risks around payment and settlement of trade transactions. This is summarized in the payment risk diagram.The trade finance business is one of the most complex areas of wholesale banking, with as many as 12 parties getting involved at different points in an end-to-end transaction. The trade finance is moving towards processing paperless transactions with minimal manual intervention. Banks are looking to automation to reduce their overall cost, improve business processes, compress the physical and financial supply chains, and increase their market share. The top 20 banks in trade finance account for 55% of market share, the remaining 45% is spread across another 400 banks.Banks play a key role and act as intermediaries providing risk mitigation and settlement services, while ultimately striving for a competitive advantage over other banks.Technological advancements have raised the expectation of corporate clients, who demand more from their banks and expect a high quality of service to match their individual needs. Customers now expect a ‘zero-latency environment’ to meet their demands for more information. Banks, while reducing operating costs, are forced to improve efficiencies to meet customer demands. The ecosystem of trade finance is shown in the diagram to the left.
Trade-related credit is issued primarily by banks via “letters of credit,” the purpose of which is to secure payment for the exporter. Letters of credit prove that a business is able to pay and allow exporters to load cargo for shipments with the assurance of being paid. This is how it works: Company A located in the Republic of A wants to buy goods from Company B located in B-land. Company A and B draw up a sales contract for the agreed sales price of $100,000. Company A would then go to its bank, A Plus Bank, and apply for a letter of credit for $100,000 with Company B as the beneficiary. (The letter of credit is done either through a standard loan underwriting process or funded with a deposit and an associated fee). A Plus Bank sends a copy of the letter of credit to B Bank, which notifies Company B that its payment is available when the terms and conditions of the letter of credit have been met (normally upon receipt of shipping documents). Once the documents have been confirmed, A Plus Bank transfers the $100,000 to Bank B to be credited to Company B.
