1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
A country’s financial sector is the major channel through which funds are mobilized for borrowing and lending transactions. A poorly regulated or managed financial sector or one with insufficient capital for the risks can increase a country’s vulnerability to financial crises.
Improved financial sector regulation and supervision ensures the financial institution take adequate steps to manage risks. Appropriate financial sector policies can stop help to establish deep and liquid domestics capital markets which will reduce the incentive for excessive borrowings. On general, improved financial sector regulation and supervision can help prevent crises by making national economics less vulnerable to adverse developments at home and abroad.
Financial sector crises have occurred in many countries in recent times; both in developed as well emerging market economics.
These crises have resulted in substantial macro-economic and fiscal costs.
Bank failures are widely perceived to have a greater adverse effect on the economy than the failure of the other types of businesses.
They are viewed to be more damaging than other failures because of the fear that they may spread in domino. Fashion through out the banking system, feeling solvent went as well as insolvent banks. Thus, the failure of an individual bank introduces the possibility of system. Wide failures or systematic risk. Bank failures have been and will continue to be a major public policy concern in all countries in the last two decades reflects primarily regulatory or government failure rather than market failures. One major element of regulation and supervision in the last of decade has been the issuance of a set of prudential measures aimed imparting strength to the banking and system and soundness through greater transparency and accountability.
The prevention of the re-occurrences of banking problems requires a better developed market assisted prudential regulations as well as appropriate incentives. For examples part of the strategy to strengthen the banking system in Nigeria include restructuring the system of inspection particularly the offsite surveillance, enhancing the role of external auditors and strengthening corporate governance, internal controls and audit procedures.
The financial system is described as the gamut of financial instruction, financial instruments and financial markets. The role of the financial system in the economy is appreciated the light of the important functions it performs in financial intermediation, capital formation management of payment systems and facilitating the effectiveness of monetary policy.
The most important functions of the financial intermediation, which facilitates the mobilization of resources from those who have (surplus units) and their transfer to those who do not have (deficit units) this influencing savings and investments and facilitating the achievements of the growth objectives of the economics of policy.
Banks constitute the payment systems, which consist of rules institutions and technical mechanism for the transfer of money for the settlement of personnel and business transactions.
