FIN 6404 Foundations of Finance Summer 2011 [a brief history of the revolution of the institutions]  Traditionally, commercial banks couldn’t take any risky activity because they managed the people’s  money. But as commercial banks got larger, they managed to convince the congress legislation.  The congress agreed, then commercial banks started to undertake what investment banks doing.  For a while, they made a lot of money, but they didn’t really understand the sophisticate of the  market. Then, the financial crisis occurred, all of them were in trouble. The government bailed the  banks out and reregulated the banks. (one full circle)  Q: There is no more investment bank now, what happened? Because during the financial crises:  Commercial banks are regulated by the Fed , they have constrains, so they have privileges: they  can borrow money from the Fed at 0% interest rate; Investment banks: if they need money during  the crisis (liquidity crisis), they want to borrow money from the Fed, they need to convert their  license from investment banks to commercial bank.  FDIC  Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Other financial institutions: [less important] Hedge funds Pension funds: they have lots of money, big enough to influence the market by their  investment decisions.   [Focus on the big picture on financial institutions] Risk is determined by: Leverage  --- cause the subprime crisis
