3-1: Role of the Banks
Why do we have banks?
Commercial banks play an important role in the financial system and the economy.
As a key component of the financial system, banks allocate funds from savers to borrowers in an efficient manner
Importance of Banks:
If there were no banks...
• Where would you go to borrow money?
• What would you do with your savings?
• Would you be able to borrow (save) as much as you need, when you need it, in a form that would be convenient for you?
• What risks might you face as a saver (borrower)?
How Banks Work
Banks borrow from "Savers" which are individuals, businesses, financial institutions, and governments with surplus savings and give small interest as payment.
They then use those deposits and borrowed funds to make loans.
Banks make these loans to sell to "Borrrowers" which are individuals, businesses, other financial institutions, and governments agencies and charge interest.
