- Demand deposit: payable on demand; that is, if a depositor shows up at the bank and requests payment by
making a withdrawal, the bank must pay the depositor immediately. For example, a checking account.
- Notice deposit: notice requirement. But the notice requirement is never enforced. So it is just like demand
- Fixed Term Deposits
- Borrowings from Bank of Canada is called advances
- Bak Capital →cushion against a drop in the value of its assets, which could force the bank into insolvency
- Obligation related to borrowed security: when an investment bank short sells a security, it generates cash
for itself and shows the obligation to repay the loan
Asset: Use of funds
- Cash esee → deposit i BOC, o iteest
- Deposits at other banks

deposited in your bank and the funds for this cheque has not yet been received (collected) from other
o This cheque is an asset for your bank because it is a claim on other banks for funds that will be paid
in a few days
- Securities, Loans, Fixed and other assets

- Money creation process from loans

- Money; medium of exchange is M1
o Cash at banks and in circulation
o Chequing accounts(deposits)

of default → if he ak deides $ is a easoale epet loa loss;

Measure how quickly corporation/other entity can liquidate assets and cover short
term liabilities
10% Capital Ratio (equity/assets)
o All banks would have the same restrictions
o To be more profitable, bank might make riskier loans (Sub Prim) or take loans off BS
o ‘iskie loas hae highe iteest ates →isk of aks → ak u
o Requires that the bank also be regulated in terms of its assets and its other non-deposit liabilities
o Otherwise there is still significant risk of bank failures and bank runs
- Liuidit → poess also oks i eese; bank uses up all its reserves
o Calls in loans to get cash
o Someone else wants their cash; bank closes door
o More banks in the system the more money is created
