BFM MODULE – A: INTERNATIONAL BANKING
We know that an international bank is a financial organisation that conducts business outside of its place of origin and offers financial services to clients worldwide. An international bank that must abide by the laws of both its home country and the country it is operating in is one that has foreign bank branches. In this module we discuss various aspects of international banking which include the following:
- factors influencing currency exchange rates, Spot/forward rates, premium and discount, cross rates, as well as direct and indirect quotes.
- Swaps, options, and forward exchange rate contracts are the fundamentals of forex derivatives. NRI accounts, correspondent banking.
- UCPDC 600 Documentary Letters of Credit, various services for exporters and importers Foreign trade risks, the ECGC’s function, different types of insurance and guarantee coverage, or ECGC.
- Exim Bank’s role, the RBI’s role in exchange control, Indian regulations, FED’s mandate and regulations, FEMA’s mandate and regulations.
Some explanation for the contents of the module of international banking is given below:
Foreign Exchange: Converting currencies from the invoice currency to the exporters’ home currency is referred to as foreign exchange. Foreign Exchange is defined as “All deposits, credits, and balances payable in foreign currency as well as any draughts, traveler’s checks, LCs, and bills of exchange expressed or drawn in Indian Currency and payable in any foreign currency” by the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA), which was passed in 1999. A contract for the exchange of money from one currency for money from another at a set rate or on a predetermined basis is known as a foreign exchange transaction.
Exchange rate: The cost, ratio, or value at which one country’s money is exchanged for another country’s money.
Forex Markets: The forex markets are extremely active since, on average, the major currencies’ exchange prices change every four seconds, thereby registering 21,600 changes per day (15 times X 60 seconds X 24 hours)
Operation: These markets typically are open from “Monday to Friday” throughout the world, with the exception of the Middle East and some Islamic nations, which are open on Saturday and Sunday (with limits) to serve local requirements but are closed on Friday. The majority of Forex markets operate on an OTC (Over Counter) basis.
TOM: In this forex delivery, the money is settled on the following business day. The settlement date will be determined the following working day in both nations if either of the two countries’ respective holidays coincide with the case’s settlement date.
Spot: The second working day after or after the contract or deal date is when money is settled. The settlement date will be the following working day in both nations if either of the two countries’ settlement days falls on a holiday.
Forward: In a forward contract, money is delivered on any day that follows the SPOT date. Conversely, when the currencies are delivered at a date later than the spot date, the forward rate is used.
Fixed vs. Floating Exchange Rates: The official exchange rate set by the monetary authorities for one or more currencies is known as the fixed exchange rate. While under a floating exchange rate, the value of the currency is determined by supply and demand variables for a particular currency, it is typically tied to one or more currencies. While the world’s economies have used a floating exchange rate system since 1973, India only started using one in 1993.
Bid and Offered Rates: Bid and Offered rates are the terms used to describe the buying and selling rates.
