2.2 MEANING OF WHOLESALE BANKING OPERATIONS
The Wholesale Banking contains products sold to large and middle market
commercial companies, as well as to consumers on a wholesale basis. This
includes lending, treasury management, mutual funds, asset-based lending,
commercial real estate, corporate and institutional trust services, and
investment banking through Wells Fargo Securities. The company also owns
Baring ton Associates, a middle market investment bank. Wells Fargo
historically has avoided large corporate loans as stand-alone products,
instead requiring that borrowers purchase other products along with loans—
which the bank sees as a loss leader. One area that is very profitable to
Wells, however, is asset-based lending: lending to large companies using
assets as collateral that are not normally used in other loans. This can be
compared to subprime lending, but on a corporate level. The main brand
name for this activity is "Wells Fargo Foothill," and is regularly marketed in
tombstone ads in the Wall Street Journal. Wells Fargo also owns Eastdil
Secured, which is described as a "real estate investment bank" but is
essentially one of the largest commercial real estate brokers for very large
transactions (such as the purchase and sale of large Class-A office buildings
in central business districts throughout the United States).
The wholesale banking operations consist of the following transactions:
1. Opening of Account
2. Issue of Check book
3. International Debit / Credit Card
4. Issue of Demand Draft (DD)
5. Net banking
6. e-mail statement
7. phone banking
8. Insta Query
9. Insta Alert
12.Quarterly Account Statement
2.3 DEFINITIONS OF BANKING
A bank is a financial institution licensed by a government. Its primary
activity is to lend money. Many other financial activities were allowed
over time. For example banks are important players in financial
markets and offer financial services such as investment funds.
Banking can also be defined as engaging in the business of keeping
money for savings and checking accounts or for exchange or for
issuing loans and credit.
Transacting business with a bank; depositing or withdrawing funds or
requesting a loan.
Bank - a supply or stock held in reserve for future use (especially in
2.4 MEANING OF BANKING
An organization, usually a corporation, chartered by a state or federal
government, which does most or all of the following: receives demand
deposits and time deposits, honors instruments drawn on them, and pays
interest on them; discounts notes, makes loans, and invests in securities;
collects checks, drafts, and notes; certifies depositor's checks; and issues
drafts and cashier's checks.

3.2 Customer service in Banking Operations
Cheque Drop Box Facility
RBI's Committee on Procedures and Performance Audit on Public Services
has recommended that both the drop box facility and the facility for
acknowledgement of the cheques at the regular collection counters should be
available to customers and no branch should refuse to give an
acknowledgement if the customer tenders the cheques at the counters.
Issue of Cheque Books: The Committee has observed that some banks
do not allow depositors to collect their cheque book at the branch but
insist on dispatching the cheque book by courier to the depositor. Further,
it is stated by the Committee that the depositor is forced to sign a
declaration that a despatch by the courier is at the depositor's risk and
consequence and that the depositor shall not hold the bank liable in any
manner whatsoever in respect of such despatch of cheque book.
Committee has observed this as an unfair practice and advised banks to
refrain from obtaining such undertakings from depositors. Banks should
also ensure that cheque books are delivered over the counters on request
to the depositors or his authorized representative.
Statement of Accounts / Pass Books: The Committee has noted that
banks invariably show the entries in depositor’s passbooks / statement of
accounts as "By Clearing" or "By Cheque". Further, in the case of
Electronic Clearing System (ECS) and RBI Electronic Funds Transfer
(RBIEFTR) banks invariably do not provide any details even though
brief particulars of the remittance are provided to the receiving bank. In
some cases computerized entries use sophisticated codes which just
cannot be deciphered. With a view to avoiding inconvenience to
depositors, banks are advised to avoid such inscrutable entries in
passbooks statements of account and ensure that brief, intelligible
particulars are invariably entered in passbooks / statements of account.
Banks may also ensure that they adhere to the monthly periodicity
prescribed by us while sending statement of accounts.
3.3 Traditional banking activities: Banks act as payment agents by
conducting checking or current accounts for customers, paying cheques
drawn by customers on the bank, and collecting cheques deposited to
customers' current accounts. Banks also enable customer payments via other
payment methods such as telegraphic transfer, EFTPOS, and ATM. Banks
borrow money by accepting funds deposited on current accounts, by
accepting term deposits, and by issuing debt securities such as banknotes
and bonds. Banks lend money by making advances to customers on current
accounts, by making installment loans, and by investing in marketable debt
securities and other forms of money lending. Banks provide almost all
payment services, and a bank account is considered indispensable by most
businesses, individuals and governments. Non-banks that provide payment
services such as remittance companies are not normally considered an
adequate substitute for having a bank account. Banks borrow most funds
from households and non-financial businesses, and lend most funds to
households and non-financial businesses, but non-bank lenders provide a
significant and in many cases adequate substitute for bank loans, and money
market funds, cash management trusts and other non-bank financial
institutions in many cases provide an adequate substitute to banks for
lending savings to
3.4 Accounting for bank accounts
Bank statements are accounting records produced by banks under the
various accounting standards of the world. Under GAAP and IFRS there are
two kinds of accounts: debit and credit. Credit accounts are Revenue, Equity
and Liabilities. Debit Accounts are Assets and Expenses. This means you
credit a credit account to increase its balance, and you debit a debit account
to increase its balance.This also means you debit your savings account
every time you deposit money into it (and the account is normally in deficit),
while you credit your credit card account every time you spend money from
it (and the account is normally in credit).However, if you read your bank
statement, it will say the opposite—that you credit your account when you
deposit money, and you debit it when you withdraw funds. If you have cash
in your account, you have a positive (or credit) balance; if you are
overdrawn, you have a negative (or deficit) balance. The reason for this is
that the bank, and not you, has produced the bank statement. Your savings
might be your assets, but the bank's liability, so they are credit accounts
(which should have a positive balance). Conversely, your loans are your
liabilities but the bank's assets, so they are debit accounts (which should
have a also have a positive balance).Where bank transactions, balances,
credits and debits are discussed below, they are done so from the viewpoint
of the account holder—which is traditionally what most people are used to
3.5 Economic functions
1. Issue of money, in the form of banknotes and current accounts subject to
cheque or payment at the customer's order. These claims on banks can act
as money because they are negotiable and/or repayable on demand, and
hence valued at par. They are effectively transferable by mere delivery,
in the case of banknotes, or by drawing a cheque that the payee may bank
2. Netting and settlement of payments – banks act as both collection and
paying agents for customers, participating in interbank clearing and
settlement systems to collect, present, be presented with, and pay
payment instruments. This enables banks to economies on reserves held
for settlement of payments, since inward and outward payments offset
each other. It also enables the offsetting of payment flows between
geographical areas, reducing the cost of settlement between them.
3. Credit intermediation – banks borrow and lend back-to-back on their
own account as middle men
4. Credit quality improvement – banks lend money to ordinary
commercial and personal borrowers (ordinary credit quality), but are high
quality borrowers. The improvement comes from diversification of the
bank's assets and capital which provides a buffer to absorb losses without
defaulting on its obligations. However, banknotes and deposits are
generally unsecured; if the bank gets into difficulty and pledges assets as
security, to raise the funding it needs to continue to operate, this puts the
note holders and depositors in an economically subordinated position.
5. Maturity Transformation – banks borrow more on demand debt and
short term debt, but provide more long term loans. In other words, they
borrow short and lend long. With a stronger credit quality than most
other borrowers, banks can do this by aggregating issues (e.g. accepting
deposits and issuing banknotes) and redemptions (e.g. withdrawals and
redemptions of banknotes), maintaining reserves of cash, investing in
marketable securities that can be readily converted to cash if needed, and
raising replacement funding as needed from various sources (e.g.
wholesale cash markets and securities markets).
3.6 Banking channels
Banks offer many different channels to access their banking and other
• A branch, banking centre or financial centre is a retail location where
a bank or financial institution offers a wide array of face-to-face
service to its customers.
• ATM is a computerized telecommunications device that provides a
financial institution's customers a method of financial transactions in a
public space without the need for a human clerk or bank teller. Most
banks now have more ATMs than branches, and ATMs are providing
a wider range of services to a wider range of users. For example in
Hong Kong, most ATMs enable anyone to deposit cash to any
customer of the bank's account by feeding in the notes and entering
the account number to be credited. Also, most ATMs enable card
holders from other banks to get their account balance and withdraw

3.8 Mortgage Banking
Mortgage banking deals primarily with originating mortgage loans and
servicing them. Read more about it here as well as about what a career in
mortgage banking involves. Mortgage banking is meant for a single purpose,
to service the real estate finance industry. Mortgage banking deals
specifically with originating mortgage loans as well as servicing them.
Mortgage banks are state-licensed entities from which consumers can get
mortgage loans directly. Usually, mortgage banks avail funds from the
Federal National Mortgage Association, or FNMA, also known as Fannie
Mae, the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, or FHLMC, also
known as Freddie Mac, or any other large companies that service mortgages,
which are related to the secondary mortgage market. Here are a few pointers
about the nitty-gritty of mortgage banking.
Mortgage Banks Specialize in Mortgage Loans: Unlike a savings bank
that is federally chartered, in general mortgage banks specialize in only
providing mortgage loans. Hence, customers do not deposit their money in
these banks. As has been mentioned above, the secondary wholesale market
is their primary source of funds. Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae are examples
of the lenders in the secondary market.
Mortgage Banks Differ in Size: While some mortgage banks can be
nationwide, others can originate a volume of loan that can exceed that of a
commercial bank that is nationwide. Many of these mortgage banks utilize
specialty servicers like Real Time Resolutions to carry out tasks like fraud
detection work and repurchase.
Mortgage Banks have Two Sources of Revenue: The two main sources of
income are from loan servicing fees (if they are into loan sevicing0, and fees
from loan origination. Mortgage bankers, by and large, are choosing not to
service the loans they have originated. That is because they are entitled to
earn a service-released premium by selling them soon after the mortgage
loans are closed and funded. The investor in the secondary market that
purchases the loan has the ability of earning revenue for providing servicing
of the loan every month the borrower keeps the loan.
Different Banking Laws Apply to Mortgage Banks: Mortgage banks
usually operate under banking laws that are quite different, according to the
state they operate in. You will need to check each individual state’s financial
department or state banking in order to get list of mortgage bankers in each
state. While federal laws apply to the operation of a federal bank, in terms of
consumer protection, usually consumers have additional rights, which are
applicable according to each state.
Mortgage Bankers can be More Competitive: Since they only specialize
in lending and do not have to subsidize any of the losses that other
departments may have incurred, as in regular banking, mortgage bankers
have the ability of being really competitive when lending for mortgage.
However, they usually do not have the advantage of accessing adjustable
rate mortgages that are low cost, which federal banks are typically
associated with, and federal money access.
A Career in Mortgage Banking: Professionals in mortgage banking in the
job market today need to have a college degree in business or finance, or
some specific experience or training related to the field. Skills in good
customer service, an inherent ability with numbers, and computer skills are
also essential requirements for mortgage banking jobs. A mortgage banking
professional’s job involves reviewing credit scores, determining the kind of
loan that is most beneficial for the customer and guiding them through the
process of application as well as closing. The loan officer has to be very
organized and detail oriented, and need to be able to handle the large
amounts of paperwork and reporting that are required for getting loans
approved, up to the closing. A mortgage banking professional also has to
have thorough know-how about the regulations associated with federal
mortgage as well as the various types.
3.9 KYC (KNOW YOUR CUSTOMER)
As per KYC guideline the RBI has advised banks to follow KYC guidelines
of RBI mandates banks to collect three proofs from their customers they are
2 Proof of Identity
3 Proof of address

a photograph and documentary proof of personal identification and address
proof are required t be provided.The account Opening form Provides the
