Overview of NBFI

2.1 About NBFI

A non-bank financial institution (NBFI) is as financial institution that does not have a full banking license or is not supervised by a national or international banking regulatory agency. NBFIs facilitate bank-related financial services, such as investment, risk pooling, contractual savings, and market brokering.<href=”#cite_note-0″>[1] Examples of these include insurance firms, pawn shops, cashier’s check issuers, check cashing locations, currency exchanges, and micro loan organizations.(reference:5)

Non-Bank Financial Institutions (NBFIs) are those institutions that are licensed and controlled by FIA of 1993. NBFIs give loans and advances for industry, commerce, agriculture or housing; carries on business of hire purchase transactions including leasing of machinery or equipment; involves in business of the underwriting or acquisition of, or the investment or re-investment in shares, stocks, bonds, debentures or debenture stock or securities issued by the government or any local authority; finances venture capital; gives loan for house building and property purchases and uses its capital to invest in companies. The major differences of NBFIs with commercial banks are that the former cannot accept any deposit which is payable on demand by cheques, drafts or orders drawn by the depositor and cannot deal in foreign exchange. Starting from the IPDC in 1981, a total of 29 NBFIs are now working in the country as of November 2009.

For NBFIs the prime sources of funding are loans from commercial banks and other financial institutions, term deposits from the public, funds from capital market by issuing shares, debentures, bonds etc. and loan facilities from the international agencies like ADB, IDA, IFC etc. NBFIs are mostly dependent on funds from the credit lines of the commercial banks at a relatively higher rate of interest ranging up to 15%. Moreover, they have to provide high and expensive collateral securities like fixed deposits at the time of borrowing fund from the commercial banks. Raising fund from capital market is a prospective way to reduce dependency on borrowed funds and boost up the activities of NBFI’s in an efficient manner. The lease financing practices in Bangladesh have grown significantly within the last 10 years. Competition among the leasing companies has grown stronger with the growth of the NBFIs, besides entrance of commercial banks in the lease financing market who have the advantage of lower costs of fund compared to the NBFIs. Currently, out of 29 NBFI, 22 specialize in lease financing. As per central bank data released in May 2010, lease financing constituted 54.5% of total long term assets, with the rest consisting mainly of term financing.(reference:9)

2.2 NBFI Position

Bangladesh Leasing and Finance Companies Association, a representative body NBFI has been formed in 1999, to serve as a forum for interacting among the NBFIs on matters which affect the industry and to act as the official voice of the sector. Out of 29 licensed NBFIs 26 have registered themselves as member of the association. The Association is active and has been playing a positive & creative role to protect the interest of the member and contributing in the formulation and implementation of various national financial policies.

2.3 Role and Function

The role and importance of non-bank financial intermediaries is clear from the various functions performed by these institutions. Major functions of the NBFIs are as follows:

1. Financial Inter mediation:

The most important function of the non-bank financial intermediaries is the transfer of funds from the savers to the investors.

Financial intermediation is economical and less expensive to both small businesses and small savers,

(a) It provides funds to small businesses for which it is difficult to sell stocks and bonds because of high transaction costs,

(b) It also benefits the small savers by pooling their funds and diversifying their investments.

2. Economic Basis of Financial Intermediation:

Handling of funds by financial intermediaries is more economical and more efficient than that by the individual wealth owners because of the fact that financial intermediation is based on

(a) The law of large numbers: Financial intermediaries operate on the basis of the statistical law of large numbers. According to this law not all the creditors will withdraw their funds from these institutions. And

(b) Economies of scale in portfolio management: Large size of the asset portfolios enables the financial intermediaries to reap various economies of scale in portfolio management. The main economies are:

· Reduction of risk through portfolio diversification:

· Employment of efficient and professional managers; and

· Low administrative cost of large loans and

· Low costs of establishment, information and transactions.

3. Inducement to Save:

Non-bank financial intermediaries play an important role in promoting savings in the country. Savers need stores of value to hold their savings in. These institutions provide a wide range of financial assets as store of value and make available expert financial services to the savers. As stores of value, the financial assets have certain special advantages over the tangible assets (such as, physical capital, inventories of goods, etc.). They are easily storable, more liquid, more easily divisible, and less risky. In fact, saving- income ratio is positively related to both financial institutions and financial assets; financial progress. Induces larger savings out of the same level of real income.

4. Mobilization of Saving:

Mobilization of savings takes place when the savers hold savings in the form of currency, bank deposits, post office savings deposits, life insurance policies, bills, bond’s equity shares, etc. NBFI provides highly efficient mechanism for mobilizing savings. There are two types of NBFTs involved in the mobilization of savings;

(a) Depository Intermediaries, such as savings and loan associations, credit unions, mutual saving banks etc. These institutions mobilize small savings and provide high liquidity of funds.

(b) Contractual Intermediaries, such as life insurance companies, public provident funds, pension funds, etc. These institutions enter into contract with savers and provide them various types of benefits over the long periods.

5. Investment of Funds:

The main objective of NBFIs is to earn profits by investing the mobilized savings. For this purpose, these institutions follow different investment policies. For example, savings and loan associations, mutual saving banks invest in mortgages, while insurance companies invest in bonds and securities.

3.4 Role of Bangladesh Bank

Non-banking financial institutions (NBFIs) have come under Basel-II framework on a test-run basis from January 1 this year as part of the central bank’s move to consolidate their capital base and minimize inherent risk.

The central bank of Bangladesh has already introduced draft guidelines on BAFI, which will come into force from January 01, 2012 with its subsequent supplements and revisions.

“The central bank has taken the move to boost financial base of the NBFIs and ensure their management efficiency in the long run through using the best global best practices,” a senior official of the Bangladesh Bank (BB) told BBN in Dhaka.

The Basel-II framework, the most widely used accord which sets the benchmarks for banks and other financial institutions across the globe – has come into effect for all Bangladeshi commercial banks from January 2011.

The framework is based on three mutually reinforcing pillars: ensuring MCR, SRP and market discipline.

The accord outlines the level of capital required by a NBFI against credit, market and operational risk based on the risk profile of the organization.

“The primary objective is neither to raise nor to reduce regulatory capital for the financial institutions. However, the capital requirements for a specific financial institution may increase or decrease depending upon its own risk profile,” the central bank said. (Reference: 8)

Therefore, the non-banking financial institutions must have to maintain sufficient liquidity to repay its depositors and trade off between the liquidity and profitability is must.

4.2.4 Intent:

Banks sanction loans for productive purpose. No advances will be made by bank for 5nproductive purposes though the borrower may be free from all risks.

4.2.5 Security:

The security offered for an advance is an insurance to fall financial institution upon in cases of need. Security serves as a safety value for an unexpected emergency. Since risk factors are involved, security coverage has to be taken before a lending.
