Please refer attached coursework brief for details:
Banks are effectively firms and their primary objective is maximising shareholder
wealth through profit maximisation. However, regulators impose strict operating
restrictions on banks as their objective is to control the bank’s liquidity and solvency in
an attempt to minimise systemic risk especially in the post crisis era.
Critically review how the tensions between these two objectives can be resolved
showing how banks can attempt to maximise their profits whilst operating under
these regulatory constraints.
Your conclusions should be based on evidence you have reviewed and you may draw
upon relevant theories and ideas and where appropriate use analysis, arguments and
justification by using examples and illustrations
