  • Global financial regulatory reforms and sovereign’s exemption
    • Pages: 190 - 202
      Abstract: Journal of Financial Regulation and Compliance, Volume 26, Issue 2, Page 190-202, May 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to underline the (hidden) risks posed after the crisis by the exemption of non-financial operators, especially sovereigns, from the regulatory reforms of over the counter (OTC) derivatives undertaken by G20 countries in the absence of accounting data on trading. Design/methodology/approach Recent financial regulatory improvements are reported to underline that the trading of OTC derivatives by sovereigns and local administrations does not take place under the new regulatory umbrella, because of the relative size of the institution, the lack of incentives to adhere to Centralized Counterparty Systems (CCPs) and most of all, the absence of proper accounting rules. Sovereigns and local administrations have the potential to undermine global financial stability. Findings The limited availability of accounting data on derivatives’ use by public administrations constitutes a barrier towards a full comprehension of risks involved. Sovereigns should be compelled to adhere to the CCPs and the collateralized system of trading; the short-term costs of adhering to CCPs are worth $20bn. Research limitations/implications The new regulatory system failed to explicitly consider the trading of sovereigns and this can reduce the effectiveness of regulation itself and can have negative impact on financial stability; in fact, omitting sovereigns from these regulations represent a significant risk oversight because they are systemically important players, although with a special political power. Originality/value Despite progress made in improving the transparency and resilience of OTC derivative markets after the subprime crisis, sovereigns and public administrations are exempted from the new regulation, posing severe risks to financial stability.

  • Is commercial bank lending in South Africa procyclical'
    • Pages: 203 - 226
      Abstract: Journal of Financial Regulation and Compliance, Volume 26, Issue 2, Page 203-226, May 2018.
      Purpose This paper aims to examine the relationship between commercial bank lending and business cycle in South Africa. This paper attempts to know whether commercial bank lending in South Africa is procyclical. Design/methodology/approach The model assumed that the lending behaviour is related to the business cycle. In this study, vector error correction model (VECM) is used to capture the relationship between bank lending and business cycle to accurately elicit the macroeconomic long-run relationship between business cycle and bank lending, as some banks might slow down bank lending due to some idiosyncratic factors that are not related to the downturn in the economy. This paper uses data from South African Reserve Bank for the period of 1990-2015 using VECM to understand the extent to which business cycle fluctuation can affect credit crunch in the financial system. The Johansen cointegration approach is used to ascertain whether there is indeed a long-run co-movement between credit growth and business cycle. Findings Results from the VECM show that there are significant linkages among the variables, especially between credit to gross domestic product (GDP) and business cycle. The influence of business cycle is seen vividly after a period of four to five years, where business cycle explains 20 per cent of the variation in the credit to GDP. South African banks tend to change their lending behaviour during upturns and downturns. This result further confirms the assertion in theory that credit follows business cycle and can amplify credit crunch. The result shows that in the long run, fluctuations in the business cycle can influence the credit growth in South Africa. Research limitations/implications The impulse analysis result shows that the impact of business cycle shock is very persistent and lasting. This also demonstrates that the shocks to the business cycle result have a persistent and long-lasting impact on credit. This study finds that commercial bank lending in South Africa is procyclical. It is suggested that the South African economy needs forward-looking policies that will mitigate the flow of credit to the real sector and at the same time ensure financial stability. Originality/value Most research papers rarely distinguish between the demand side and supply side of credit procyclicality. This report is presented to develop an econometric model that will examine demand side procyclicality. This study adopts more realistic and novel methods that will help in explaining the relationship between bank lending and business cycle in South Africa, especially after the global financial crisis. This report is presented with a concise and detailed analysis and interpretation.

  • The use of efficiency measures to compute welfare improving: an
           application for competition policy
    • Pages: 227 - 245
      Abstract: Journal of Financial Regulation and Compliance, Volume 26, Issue 2, Page 227-245, May 2018.
      Purpose Merger approving focuses on both market power and welfare gains. In general, the approval process does not include a comparative efficiency analysis. This paper aims to introduce this dimension and show its potential. Design/methodology/approach Based on the analysis of past bank mergers, the authors examine expected and actual efficiency gains. This paper measures the potential (ex ante) and ex post efficiency gains of bank mergers by using data envelopment analysis (DEA). Findings The authors find some (approved) mergers were promised and yielded efficiency gains while others did not. Research limitations/implications DEA does not allow testing statistically the significance of the presumed relationship between variables. Practical implications The authors conclude that some mergers that took place would not have been approved had an efficiency analysis been made. Social implications Regulators and/or competition authorities could approve mergers which do not increase efficiency. Originality/value To date, efficiency frontier analysis has not been performed for merger approval. It implies that the regulator or competition authority could allow mergers with no clear social gains.

  • Impact of regulatory reforms on compliance with mandatory disclosures by
           savings and credit co-operatives in Kenya
    • Pages: 246 - 270
      Abstract: Journal of Financial Regulation and Compliance, Volume 26, Issue 2, Page 246-270, May 2018.
      Purpose This paper aims to utilize institutional theory to examine the impact of the 2008-2010 regulatory reforms on compliance with mandatory disclosures by savings and credit co-operatives (SACCOs) in Kenya. Design/methodology/approach Two-stage least squares panel regression approach is utilized to analyse data covering 1,272 firm-year observations for 212 SACCOs over a six-year period, 2008-2013. An analysis of the pre- and post-regulation impacts on compliance with mandatory disclosure requirements is also performed. Findings The results, which are in support of the institutional theory, reveal that licensed SACCOs engage in higher compliance with mandatory disclosures, and this improves from the pre- to the post-regulation period. The results show that SACCOs under inquiry engage in lower compliance with mandatory disclosure requirements, especially in the post-regulation period. The findings also reveal a significant and positive association between SACCO size, co-operative governance and compliance with mandatory disclosure requirements. Research limitations/implications The study focuses on transition-level SACCOs in a single country. An extension into other jurisdictions with nascent, transitional and mature SACCOs would provide greater insights into the impact of disclosure regulation. Further, the study uses a self-constructed disclosure checklist which is subject to coding errors and biases. Practical implications The findings highlight the need for SACCO regulators and accounting professional body to devise incentives to improve the level of compliance with required disclosures. Originality/value The study contributes to the dearth of evidence on the efficacy of the introduction of mandatory disclosure requirements in a developing country where compliance is problematic because of difficulties with enforcement.

  • Institutional framework in developing economies
    • Pages: 271 - 286
      Abstract: Journal of Financial Regulation and Compliance, Volume 26, Issue 2, Page 271-286, May 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to establish the relationship between institutional framework of regulative (formal rules), normative (informal norms) and cultural-cognitive (cognition), and their effects on financial intermediation by microfinance deposit taking institutions (MDIs) in developing economies like Uganda. Design/methodology/approach Data collected from a total sample of 400 poor households and 40 relationship officers located in rural Uganda were processed using statistical package for social sciences and analysis of moment structures to establish the relationship between institutional framework of regulative, normative and cultural-cognitive, and their effects on financial intermediation by MDIs in developing economies. Findings The results showed that the three dimensions of regulative (formal rules), normative (informal norms) and cultural-cognitive (cognition) significantly affect financial intermediation by MDIs in developing economies like Uganda. In addition, as a unique finding, two new dimensions of procedural and declarative cognition emerged from cultural-cognitive framework to determine financial intermediation among MDIs in developing economies, specifically in Uganda. Research limitations/implications The study collected data from only poor households and relationship officers located in rural Uganda. It ignored peri-urban and urban areas in Uganda. In addition, the study focused only on MDIs and ignored other financial institutions. Besides, the study was purely quantitative, therefore, further research through interviews may be useful in future. Furthermore, the study was carried out in rural Uganda as a developing economy. Thus, future research using the same variables in other developing economies may be useful. Practical implications Managers of financial institutions and policy makers should know that market functions of financial intermediaries in developing economies are promoted by institutional framework of regulative, normative and procedural and declarative cognition that lowers transaction cost and promotes information sharing. Therefore, more efforts should be directed towards strengthening the existing institutional framework of regulative, normative and cognition to promote financial intermediation by financial institutions such as MDIs. Originality/value This paper is the first to test the relationship between institutional framework and their effects on financial intermediation by MDIs in developing economies. The results revealed existence of two new factor structures of procedural and declarative cognition in explaining financial intermediation by MDIs in developing economies like Uganda. This is sparse in financial intermediation literature and theory.

  • Household leverage and consumption during the Great Depression
    • Pages: 287 - 299
      Abstract: Journal of Financial Regulation and Compliance, Volume 26, Issue 2, Page 287-299, May 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this study is to explore the impact of household leverage on consumption in Denmark during the Great Depression in the 1930s. Design/methodology/approach A range of consumption functions are estimated on the basis of household-level data from the Expenditure and Saving Survey of 1931. Findings The estimations show significant negative marginal effects of various measures of leverage on homeowners’ non-durable consumption. The magnitude of the estimated effects suggests that leverage contributed significantly to the economic downturn during the Great Depression by depressing consumer spending of homeowners. Practical implications Gross debt levels of homeowners are not only of direct importance for financial stability but also have implications for macroeconomic stability, which again might affect the stability of the financial system. These findings seem to be in line with the focus on household leverage in the macroprudential oversight performed by regulators and central banks in many countries. Originality/value This paper is the first study of the leverage channel in the private consumption function using household micro data from the Great Depression.

  • Capital structure, ownership and crisis: how different are banks'
    • Pages: 300 - 330
      Abstract: Journal of Financial Regulation and Compliance, Volume 26, Issue 2, Page 300-330, May 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this study is to examine the issue of bank capital structure which has been widely debated in recent times, especially in view of the envisaged implementation of the revised Basel capital standards. An issue that has not been adequately addressed is the factors affecting capital structure of banks from a corporate finance perspective. To address this, the authors assemble data on publicly listed Indian banks for an extended time span and compare the findings with a comparable sample of largest non-financial firms. Design/methodology/approach In view of the longitudinal nature of the data, the authors use panel data techniques to examine the issue. Findings The analysis indicates that profitability, growth opportunities and risk are the factors that are most relevant in influencing bank capital. Second, the crisis appears to have exerted a perceptible impact on bank capital. Practical implications On balance, the findings refute the conventional wisdom that bank capital structure is purely a response to the regulatory requirements. Instead, the results would that banks’ capital decisions are influenced by several non-regulatory considerations as well, including government policies toward banks, which is particularly relevant in countries with predominantly state-owned banking systems. Originality/value First, the authors examine the relevance of bank ownership for leverage, an aspect not adequately addressed in emerging economy banking systems. Second, they consider the impact of regulatory pressure on bank leverage, which assumes relevance in the aftermath of the crisis, wherein banks have been hard-pressed for capital. And finally, they contribute to the thin literature on the interlinkage between capital structure and board structure for banks.
