Mandiri Bank, for example, has taken a strategy to become Indonesia’s universal bank; this bank has also initiated to development of 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 their operations since the nineteenth century. There is mounting evidence that universal banks have taken an important part in the development of real sectors and the financial system in those countries. In those countries, the growing numbers of universal banking practices are really supported by central ban the k.
Despite this, in The United States, they are strict about regulating universal banks by blocking commercial banks from engaging in securities and stock market 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 options for their investment.

Thus, by operating universal banking, banks could get a greater opportunity to expand to another financial area, such as financial securities, insurance, hedge funds, 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.
