Due diligence : a report on the Bank of Canada's handling of foreign gold during World War II by Duncan McDowall( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A document retrieved by World Jewish Congress researchers in Washington gave rise to the allegation that the Bank of Canada had been party, by means of paper transfer, to a complex gold transfer involving six tons of gold shuffled between Switzerland and Portugal in 1942. Later in the war, the document alleged, this same gold became part of a second questionable swap between Portugal and Sweden with Canada's central bank again playing the role of intermediary. The Canadian Jewish Congress echoed the opinion of the World Jewish Congress that the gold transfers involving the Bank looked like a classic money-laundering operation. The Canadian Jewish Congress therefore asked the Bank to undertake an investigation to ascertain its involvement in these transactions. The Bank immediately acquiesced, announcing not only that a thorough internal investigation would be undertaken but also that an outside historian would be asked to complete an independent analysis of the Bank's role in the wartime movement of gold. This is the report of that investigation. It reviews all documents related to gold transactions during the period from the founding of the Bank of Canada in 1935 through 1950, as well as documents from the Department of Finance & other departments and the European banks involved in the transactions. The investigation responds to public concern about possible Bank of Canada involvement in transactions related to looted Nazi gold during and after the Second World War

The Bank of Canada : an illustrated history = La Banque du Canada : une histoire en images by Jill Vardy( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and French and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the Bank of Canada opened its doors on 11 March 1935, it has played a central role in the economic life of Canada and its citizens. Yet, the Bank's role in Canadian society has not always been well understood. ... Since its inception, the Bank has grown and developed as a public institution and as a workplace. Over the years, the Bank has been home to some colourful characters and fascinating stories. Many of these stories have been preserved in the Bank's Archives and in its Currency Museum. We hope that these images and anecdotes will help you learn more about Canada's central bank and its place in Canadian society"--Foreword, p. ii

The Thiessen lectures by Gordon G Thiessen( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection presents lectures given by Gordon Thiessen during his time as Governor of the Bank of Canada. He describes the theoretical vision underlying Canada's monetary policy regime, discusses how it has worked in practice, and places both theory & practice in the context of the evolution of economic thought. The first lecture focusses on how the various types of fiscal market uncertainty influence the behaviour of economic actors and how uncertainty affects the transmission of monetary policy throughout the economy. The second lecture reflects on Canada's experience in using explicit targets aimed at low rates of inflation as the focus for conducting monetary policy. The third lecture reviews change in views on the role of monetary policy since the early 1960s work of the Royal Commission on Banking & Finance (Porter Commission). The final lecture is a selective overview of events critical to the evolution of monetary policy at the Bank of Canada from its founding in 1935 to 2000

A market microstructure analysis of foreign exchange intervention in Canada by Chris D'Souza( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and French and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper clarifies the role and the impact of foreign exchange dealers in the relationship between foreign exchange intervention and nominal exchange rates using a unique dataset that disaggregates trades by dealer and by type of trade. The paper tests a number of market microstructure hypotheses. Results suggest that central bank orders and other customer orders are treated similarly by dealers who are engaged in short-run speculative and risk-sharing-motivated interdealer trading. While private payoff-relevant information is contained in trades, speculative interdealer trading is based only on transitory non-payoff-relevant information. A central bank considering intervention must consider both the signal it wishes to convey to the market and the subsequent trading strategies utilized by dealers
Adopting price-level targeting under imperfect credibility by Oleksiy Kryvtsov( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper measures the welfare gains of switching from inflation-targeting to price-level targeting under imperfect credibility. Vestin (2006) shows that when the monetary authority cannot commit to future policy, price-level targeting yields higher welfare than inflation targeting. We revisit this issue by introducing imperfect credibility, which is modeled as gradual adjustment of the private sector's beliefs about the policy change. We find that gains from switching to price-level targeting are small. A welfare loss occurs, if imperfect credibility is highly persistent
Asset allocation using extreme value theory by Younes Bensalah( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines asset allocation strategies in an extreme value at risk (VaR) framework in which the risk measure is the p -quantile from the extreme value distribution. The main focus is on the allocation problem faced by an extremely risk-averse institution, such as a central bank. The optimal portfolio in terms of excess return over the risk-free rate per unit of risk is also described. An example of asset allocation is presented using a 1-year treasury bill and a 5-year zero-coupon bond. The allocation is conducted using different risk measures: duration, standard VaR, the quantile of the empirical distribution, and the quantile of the extreme distribution. An approximation procedure is described for the allocation of N -assets. An example of allocating eight Canadian treasuries and bonds is given (covering the whole Canadian term structure). The implications of the results on optimal allocation of capital under stressed market conditions are discussed. Some practical issues concerning the use of the results are described, such as who should allocate capital based on extreme values
Managing operational risk in payment, clearing, and settlement systems by Kim McPhail( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Awareness of operational risk has increased greatly in recent years, both at individual financial institutions and for payment, clearing, and settlement systems (PCSS). PCSS consist of networks of interconnected elements (i.e., central operators, participants, and settlement agents); operational problems at any one of the key elements have the potential to disrupt the system as a whole and negatively affect financial stability. The author describes the key features of systemically important PCSS in Canada and the oversight role of the Bank of Canada with respect to those systems. She also describes one approach that could be used to assess and manage operational risk in Canadian PCSS. This approach relies on a consistent definition of operational risk that can be applied across all elements of a PCSS. It uses a recent methodology adapted from the management of operational risk at individual financial institutions. This methodology, called the loss-distribution approach, assesses risk in terms of the potential outcomes of operational events owing to certain risk factors (such as systems problems, human error, process problems, and external events), their likelihood, and their frequency. Once operational risk databases are developed that record the frequency and severity of operational events, it will be possible to estimate parts of the loss distributions for PCSS. In the meantime, qualitative analysis provided by operations experts associated with the various elements of PCSS will be important for judging the potential impact and frequency of events. In a changing financial environment, it is hoped that this methodology could be used to supplement core aspects of operational risk management, such as sound corporate governance, internal controls, policies and procedures, knowledgeable people, and robust contingency plans
Are distorted beliefs too good to be true? by Miroslav Misina( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a recent attempt to account for the equity-premium puzzle within a representative-agent model, Cecchetti, Lam, and Mark (2000) relax the assumption of rational expectations and in its place use the assumption of distorted beliefs. The author shows that the explanatory power of the distorted beliefs model is due to an inconsistency in the model and that an attempt to remove this inconsistency removes the model's explanatory power. Using the theory of rational beliefs, the author constructs a model in which the inconsistency is not present, compares its performance with that of the distorted beliefs model, and gives a simple interpretation of the results obtained
