ASSETS & LIABILITIES
Asset is an item of value owned by the company. Assets can be tangible i.e. those which have some physical existence or can be intangible i.e. which do not exist in physical form but can be held in the form of contracts or rights. Assets are usually grouped in order of liquidity (ease of conversion to cash) on the balance sheet. Cash is therefore the most liquid of all assets. Assets can be classified as: 1.) Current Assets – Those assets that are expected to be converted to cash in 12 months or less. This can be in the form of cash, accounts receivables, inventory for producing goods etc. 2.) Investments – These are the investments which the company make in other companies in the form of equity purchase, bonds etc. 3.) Fixed Assets – A fixed asset is one that is held for the purpose of producing or supplying goods or services and not for sale in the normal course of business. They are also referred to as long lived/ long term assets and are sub-classified as following: a. Property, Plant & Equipment – These are tangible items having physical existence and can be seen and felt. b. Intangible Assets – They have no physical existence and rather represent legal rights with associated economic benefits. c. Natural Resources – These include oil, natural gas, minerals and forests.

Liability is something which a company owns to people or businesses other than its owners. Liability is a present obligation arising due to some past transactions and settlement of which is expected to result in future transfer of assets (may be in the form of cash) or performance of services. Generally, liabilities can be classified into two types based on when they are due: 1.) Current Liabilities – Any liabilities or outgo of a payment which is to be made in the normal operating cycle (usually next 12 months). Also known as…...

Rbi Rules on Asset Liability Management

...Asset - Liability Management System in banks - Guidelines Over the last few years the Indian financial markets have witnessed wide ranging changes at fast pace. Intense competition for business involving both the assets and liabilities, together with increasing volatility in the domestic interest rates as well as foreign exchange rates, has brought pressure on the management of banks to maintain a good balance among spreads, profitability and long-term viability. These pressures call for structured and comprehensive measures and not just ad hoc action. The Management of banks has to base their business decisions on a dynamic and integrated risk management system and process, driven by corporate strategy. Banks are exposed to several major risks in the course of their business - credit risk, interest rate risk, foreign exchange risk, equity / commodity price risk, liquidity risk and operational risks. 2. This note lays down broad guidelines in respect of interest rate and liquidity risks management systems in banks which form part of the Asset-Liability Management (ALM) function. The initial focus of the ALM function would be to enforce the risk management discipline viz. managing business after assessing the risks involved. The objective of good risk management programmes should be that these programmes will evolve into a strategic tool for bank management. 3. The ALM process rests on three pillars: • ALM information systems => Management Information System => Information......

Liability vs. Asset of Foreigness

...Liability vs. Asset of Foreignness Foreign firms face additional costs arising from distance. Of course, distance here dose not only mean the geographic distance, but also distance from different cultures, perceptions, institutions and rules. Geographic distance brings the most obvious impact. Foreign firms must undertake additional costs caused by transportation and communication. They are all about money and it’s tangible. But as the development of information and communication technology and globalization, this cost will keep reducing. Different cultures may increase the difficulty of understanding the practices in host countries. And also, it may increase the costs of internal governance. For example, Haier in America, at the beginning it was really in trouble about the reward system. In China, if an employee does a bad job, supervisor can criticize him/her in a public meeting, but in America, supervisors are not going to do this because you emphasize human rights so much. Then Haier changed its way. Instead, it began to praise ones who did good jobs. Another question comes. This made someone else to be jealous. Finally, it changed rewards to money. It took a long time to make it right. So this kind of things is always not to be educated, but to practice by yourself because we hold different philosophy. There are numerous differences in formal and informal institutions governing the rules of the game in different countries. While local firms are already well......

Defend the Asset/Liability Approach of Accounting for Inter-Period Income Tax Allocation.

...Team 2: Defend the asset/liability approach of accounting for inter-period income tax allocation. The asset/liability method of income tax allocation is balance sheet oriented. The intent is to accrue and report the total tax benefit or taxes payable that will actually be realized or assessed on temporary differences when their respective future taxable or deductible amounts are expected to occur. The book states 5 arguments: 1. The balance sheet is becoming more important financial statement. Reporting deferred taxes based on the expected tax rates when the temporary differences reverse increases the predictive value of future cash flows, liquidity, and financial flexibility. 2. Reporting deferred taxes based on the expected tax rates is conceptually more sound because the reported amount represents either the likely future economic sacrifice (future tax payment) or economic benefit (future reduction in taxes). 3. Deferred taxes may be the result of historical transactions, but, by definition, they are taxes that are postponed and will be paid (or will reduce taxes) in the future at the future tax rates. 4. Estimates are used extensively in accounting. The use of estimated future tax rates for deferred taxes poses no more of a problem regarding verifiability and reliability than using, say, estimated lives for depreciation. 5. Because the tax expense results from changes in balance sheet values, its measurement is consistent with the SFAC No. 6 and SFAS...

Asset Liability Management

...ASSET-LIABILITY MANAGEMENT IN THE INDIAN BANKS: ISSUES AND IMPLICATIONS Abstract The development of the banking system is always associated with the contemporary changes in the economy. The Indian banking industry has undergone a metamorphosis in the last two decades due to changes in the political, economic, financial, social, legal and technological environments. The mind boggling advances in technology and deregulation of financial markets across the countries created new opportunities, tempting banks to enter every business that had been thrown open. The banks are now moving towards universal banking concepts, while adding new channels and a series of innovative product offerings catering to various segments at an attractive price. This makes it imperative for the banks to adopt sophisticated risk management techniques and to establish a link between risk exposures and capital. Effective management of risk has always been the focus area for banks owing to the increasing sophistication in the product range and services and the complex channels that deliver them. The challenge for the banks is to put in place a risk control system that minimizes the volatility in profit and engenders risk consciousness across the rank and file of the organization. Sound risk management will ensure a healthy bottom line for the bank as risk taken by the bank will be commensurate with return and will be within an approved risk management policy. As all transactions of the banks revolve around...

An Introduction to Liquidity and Asset-Liability Management

...to Liquidity and Asset-liability Management Monnie M. Biety hen a formerly credit-only microfinance institution (MFI) starts raising voluntary savings and using those deposits to finance the loan portfolio, the liquidity and asset-liability management of the institution becomes more complex. The institution not only has to deal with the fluctuating demand and varying interest rates and terms on loans, but also with erratic deposit demands and withdrawals and changing interest rates and terms on savings. Liquidity and assetliability management in savings institutions requires a coordinated, planned approach. Liquidity Management Liquidity refers to the ability of an institution to meet demands for funds. Liquidity management means ensuring that the institution maintains sufficient cash and liquid assets (1) to satisfy client demand for loans and savings withdrawals, and (2) to pay the institution’s expenses. Liquidity management involves a daily analysis and detailed estimation of the size and timing of cash inflows and outflows over the coming days and weeks to minimize the risk that savers will be unable to access their deposits in the moments they demand them. In order to manage liquidity, an institution must have a management information system in place—manual or computerized—that is sufficient to generate the information needed to make realistic growth and liquidity projections. The information needed includes: ■ The actual deposit liabilities of the MFI as of...

One of the most important risk management functions in banking is asset-liability management or ALM, broadly defined as the coordinated management of a bank's balance sheet to allow for alternative interest rate, liquidity, and prepayment scenarios. Three techniques of ALM are (1) on-balance sheet matching of the repricing o[ assets and liabilities, (2) off-balance shcet hedging of on-balance sheet risks, and (3) securitization, which removes risk from the balance sheet. The key variables of ALM inelude accounling measures such as net interest income (NIl) or its ratio form net inlerest margin (NIM = NIl/average assets) and an economic measure: the market value of a bank's......

Liabilities

...Initial Recognition, Measurement, Presentation & Disclosure of Liabilities and Shareholder’s Equity A liability is a present obligation of the enterprise arising from past events, the settlement of which is expected to result in an outflow from the enterprise of resources embodying economic benefits (IASB Framework). Apart from satisfying the definition of liability, the framework has also advised the following recognition criteria to be met before a liability could be shown on the face of a financial statement: * The outflow of resources embodying economic benefits (such as cash) from the entity is probable. * The cost / value of the obligation can be measured reliably. The minimum line items to be included on the face of the statement of financial position are: [IAS 1.54] (k) trade and other payables (l)provisions (m)financial liabilities (excluding amounts shown under (k) and (l)) (n)current tax liabilities and current tax assets, as defined in IAS 12 (o)deferred tax liabilities and deferred tax assets, as defined in IAS 12 (p)liabilities included in disposal groups (q)non-controlling interests, presented within equity (r) Issued capital and reserves attributable to owners of the parent.

Cases of nonflat term structure 2 8.1 Macaulay Duration and Modified Duration • Suppose an investor purchases a n-year semiannual coupon bond for P0 at time 0 and holds it until maturity. • As the amounts of the payments she receives are different at different times, one way to summarize the horizon is to consider the weighted average of the time of the cash flows. • We use the present values of the cash flows (not their nominal values) to compute the weights. • Consider an investment that generates cash flows of amount Ct at time t = 1, · · · , n, measured in payment periods. Suppose the rate of interest is i per payment period and the initial investment is P . 3 • We denote the present value of Ct by PV(Ct ), which is given by Ct .
