Mandiri Bank, for example, has taken strategy to become Indonesia’s universal bank; this bank has also initiated to develop an integrated financial risk system in terms of sounding financial performance and increasing shareholder value. In Germany and most developed countries in Europe, universal banks have initiated its operations since the nineteen century. There is mounting evidence that in those countries, universal banks have taken an important part in the development of real sectors and the financial system. In those countries, the growing numbers of universal banking practices are really supported by the regulation of central bank k.
Despite, in The United States, they are strict to regulate universal banks by blocking commercial banks from engaging in securities and stock markets practices. They argued that the practice of universal banking might be harmful to the financial system. ((Boyd et.al, 1998) cited in Cheang, 2004) The “risk” might be the key reason why the central bank of The U.S is worried about the universal banking system. Since, if the center of bank allowed banks to adjust their operation to be universal banks, the relationship among, banks, financial and stock markets would be closer. Consequently, this would give uncertainty to the bank’s condition and performance. For example, if there were a disaster in the stock market, banks would get problems in their financial positions. Thus, they would tend to be insolvent.
In addition, universal banks would also threaten the market share of other specialized institutions, because more customers would choose universal banks that offer more option to their investment. Hence, more specialized institutions are likely to be ruined in the U.S financial industry.
One majoring factor, which is triggering a bank to be a universal bank, is to increase the profit by enlarging its market share. According to João A. C. Santos (1998) universal bank itself can be defined as the financial institution, which enlarges its service range in terms of offering a variety of financial products and services in one site. Thus, by operating universal banking, banks could get a greater opportunity to expand to another financial area, such as financial securities, insurance, hedge funds and etc.
Although the trend of banks has recently tended to universal banks, it is undoubtedly true that universal banks would also face further risks because a wide range of financial services is strongly associated with increased risks and escalating monitoring costs. These are the major concerns why banks have to implement more advanced technology in terms of financial risk management. Moreover, the practices of universal banks would cause significant risks to the economy’s payment system. Since the operation of universal banks connects closely to the financial and stock markets that very fluctuate in the short term.
