Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wqdvnt/singapore_commerci)
has announced the addition of the "Singapore
Commercial Banking Report Q3 2012" report to their offering.
The Singapore Commercial Banking Report provides industry professionals
and strategists, corporate analysts, banking associations, government
departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and
competitive intelligence on Singapore's commercial banking industry.
Since Q108, we have described numerically the banking business
environment for each of the countries surveyed by BMI. We do this
through our Commercial Banking Business Environment Rating (CBBER), a
measure that ensures we capture the latest quantitative information
available. It also ensures consistency across all countries and between
the inputs to the CBBER and the Insurance Business Environment Rating,
which is likewise now a feature of our insurance reports.
Like the Business Environment Ratings calculated by BMI for all the
other industries on which it reports, the CBBER takes into account the
limits of potential returns and the risks to the realisation of those
returns. It is weighted 70% to the former and 30% to the latter. The
evaluation of the Limits of potential returns' includes market elements
that are specific to the banking industry of the country in question and
elements that relate to that country in general.
Within the 70% of the CBBER that takes into account the Limits of
potential returns', the market elements have a 60% weighting and the
country elements have a 40% weighting. The evaluation of the Risks to
realisation of returns' also includes banking elements and country
elements (specifically, BMI's assessment of long-term country risk).
However, within the 30% of the CBBER that take into account the risks,
these elements are weighted 40% and 60%, respectively.
Further details on how we calculate the CBBER are provided at the end of
this report. In general, though, three aspects need to be borne in mind
in interpreting the CBBERs. The first is that the market elements of the
Limits of potential returns' are by far the most heavily weighted of the
