BEA705, Financial Institutions and Markets
Unit Description
Financial market shocks often spread rapidly across different asset classes and between countries.
This unit examines the structural reasons for these interrelationships, including financial
intermediation, risk management products and regulatory structure. Attention is paid to the
challenge of accurate measurement and effective management of the inherent financial risks in the
activities of financial institutions. In particular, topics covered include:
•
•
•
•
Principles of financial management for depository financial institutions;
Various types of financial risks confronted by financial institutions;
Concepts, models, techniques and approaches to mitigate these risks theoretically and
practically;
International bank management and international financial services with regulatory
frameworks.
Prior Knowledge &/or Skills OR Pre-Requisite Unit(s)
•
BEA683 Economics for Managers
In addition to material covered in prerequisite units, it will be assumed that students are familiar
with basic spreadsheet functions in Excel, how to use a financial calculator and the Harvard
referencing system.
Online help with Excel is available at http://www.utas.edu.au/it_training/
To know how to use a financial calculator is recommended as it is very fast to assist with solving
numerical problems. However, this skill is not essential if students can operate on a simple nonprogrammable calculator.
The Harvard referencing system is detailed at
http://www.utas.edu.au/library/assist/apps/harvard_sept.pdf.
Enrolment in the Unit
Unless there are exceptional circumstances, students should not enrol in this unit after the end of
week two of semester, as the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics (TSBE) cannot guarantee
that:
•
•
any extra assistance will be provided by the teaching team in respect of work covered in the
period prior to enrolment; and
penalties will not be applied for late submission of any piece or pieces of assessment that were
due during this period.
When does the unit commence?
The unit’s teaching schedule commences in the week beginning 13 July 2015.

Learning Expectations and Teaching Strategies/Approach
The University is committed to a high standard of professional conduct in all activities, and holds its
commitment and responsibilities to its students as being of paramount importance. Likewise, it
holds expectations about the responsibilities students have as they pursue their studies within the
special environment the University offers. The University’s Code of Conduct for Teaching and
Learning states:
Students are expected to participate actively and positively in the teaching/learning
environment. They must attend classes when and as required, strive to maintain steady
progress within the subject or unit framework, comply with workload expectations, and
submit required work on time.
These are some of the expectations we have of you as a student enrolled in this unit:
BEA705 is not offered as an online independent study unit and the face-to-face contact that you
have with teaching staff through lectures and workshops is considered a central element of the unit.
The in-class discussions of students and the lecturer's explanation using the white board during the
lecture are important but may not be recorded properly. Moreover, some technique problems may
occur resulting in uncompleted lecture records. Thus, it is strongly recommended that students
should not rely ONLY on the lecture notes and recordings for their full understanding. Attending the
lectures and workshops and taking notes in your own words will facilitate your study best.
Our observation is that students who attend lectures and participate in workshops are rewarded
with improved understanding and performance. Note that the attendance to workshops will count
for 4% of your final grade.
Work, Health and Safety (WH&S)
The University is committed to providing a safe and secure teaching and learning environment. In
addition to specific requirements of this unit, you should refer to the University’s policy at:
www.utas.edu.au/work-health-safety.

the assigned areas. Other readings will be posted on MyLO in conjunction with lecturer slides.
My Learning Online (MyLO)
Access to the MyLO online learning environment unit is required for this unit. The unit has its own
MyLO site.
To log into MyLO and access this unit, go to: http://www.utas.edu.au/mylo. To access the unit,
select BEA705.
For help using MyLO go to http://www.utas.edu.au/mylo.
Technical requirements for MyLO
MyLO can be accessed via Library computers and in computer labs on campus. See:
http://www.utas.edu.au/it/computing-distributed-systems/computer-labs-facilities-and-locations
For further technical information and help, contact the UTAS Service Desk on 6226 1818 or at
http://www.utas.edu.au/service-desk during business hours.
Learning to use MyLO
When you log into MyLO, you will see a unit called Getting Started with MyLO. Enter this unit to
learn more about MyLO, and to practise using its features.
BEA705, Financial Institutions and Markets
MyLO Expectations
1.
Students are expected to maintain the highest standards of conduct across all modes of
communication, either with staff or with other students. Penalties may be imposed if the Unit
Coordinator believes that, in any instance or mode of communication, your language or
content is inappropriate or offensive. MyLO is a public forum. Due levels of respect,
professionalism and high ethical standards are expected of students at all times.
2.
Submission of assessment tasks via MyLO presumes that students have read, understood and
abide by the requirements relating to academic conduct, and in particular, those requirements
relating to plagiarism. All work submitted electronically is presumed to be “signed-off” by the
student submitting as their own work. Any breach of this requirement will lead to student
misconduct processes.
3.
MyLO is an Internet service for teaching and learning provided by the University. It is
expected that you check your units in MyLO for updates at least once a day.
Using MyLO for BEA705
IMPORTANT!: Before you are provided with access to your unit’s MyLO resources, you must
complete the Student Agreement form. To do this:
1. Access the unit’s MyLO site.
2. Locate the Begin Here folder and click on it to open it. You can find the Begin Here folder by
scrolling down until you see Content Browser OR by clicking on the Content button.
OR
3. Once you have opened the Begin Here folder, click on the Student Agreement file.
OR
4. Read the terms, then check the I agree box. You should now be able to access all available
unit content on MyLO. You only need to do this once in each MyLO unit.
Other important resources on MyLO
Students are expected to regularly check on MyLO for any updates in relation to the unit. Essentially,
MyLO has been incorporated into the delivery of this unit to enhance students’ learning experience,
by providing access to up-to-date course materials, and allowing for online discussion. In addition to
the lecture slides which are uploaded on MyLO on a weekly basis, other unit-related materials such
as supplementary readings and assessment guides can also be accessed on MyLO. Further, students
are also expected to engage in an active discussion about issues related to the unit through the
BEA705, Financial Institutions and Markets
discussion forums or chat rooms that are available on MyLO: this is particularly helpful for distance
students who may utilise the facilities available on MyLO to contact their fellow distance students
and form groups to complete any group assessment tasks for this unit. In this regard, MyLO should
be treated as the unit's critical platform for learning and communication.
Student Feedback via eVALUate
At the conclusion of each unit, students will be asked to provide online responses to a number of
matters relating to the learning and teaching within that unit. All students are asked to respond
honestly to these questions, as all information received is used to enhance the delivery of future
offerings.
Details of Teaching Arrangements
Lectures
Lectures are held weekly, beginning in week 1 in the Centenary Building – Harvard Room 2. Your
lecture will be held on Tuesdays 12:00 noon to 13:50 in SB.AR15.L01.134.
While the lecture notes for BEA705 are available via MyLO, most of the diagrams (of which there are
many) and other concepts cannot be easily understood just by reading the lecture notes. In fact
some of the diagrams are incomplete and will be completed and labelled in the lectures.
Regular attendance in lectures is a first step toward a successful learning outcome. Students are
strongly encouraged to attend all lectures and are expected to spend at least an hour to read
through the related textbook chapters before they come to lectures. You should not expect to
instantaneously "understand" all the material in each lecture; that will almost certainly require you
to go away from the lecture and think carefully about what you have heard and been shown,
assimilate further material from the textbook and actively participate in the tutorial program.
Workshops
Workshops are provided primarily to improve your understanding of the unit's material. To benefit
most from them, you should come well prepared and should already have attempted the workshop
exercises. Missing the workshop classes and relying on reading the workshop solutions is a flawed
learning approach that in the past has resulted in students under-performing or failing the unit.
The workshop problems will be posted on MyLO one week in advance.
Workshops (WS) are held weekly, beginning in week 2 on Tuesdays 14:00 noon to 14:50 in
SB.AR15.L01.134.

question already. Otherwise, add your question as a new topic. Students are encouraged to support
each other using this forum – if you can answer someone’s question, please do. We will attempt to
respond to questions within 48 business hours. If your question is related to a personal issue or your
performance in the unit, please contact the appropriate teaching staff member by email instead.
WHEN YOU HAVE AN ISSUE THAT WILL IMPACT ON YOUR STUDIES OR THE SUBMISSION OF AN
ASSESSMENT TASK
If you have a personal question related to your studies or your grades, please contact teaching staff
by email.
For general questions about the unit, please add them to the Q&A forum on our unit’s MyLO site.
This way, other students can also benefit from the answers.
A NOTE ABOUT EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE
You are expected to check your UTAS email (WebMail) on a regular basis – at least three times per
week. To access your WebMail account, login using your UTAS username and password at
https://webmail.utas.edu.au/.
You are strongly advised not to forward your UTAS emails to an external email service (such as gmail
or Hotmail). In the past, there have been significant issues where this has occurred, resulting in UTAS
being blacklisted by these email providers for a period of up to one month. To keep informed, please
use your UTAS email as often as possible.
We receive a lot of emails. Be realistic about how long it might take for us to respond. Allow at least
TWO (2) business days to reply. Staff are not required to respond to emails where students do not
directly identify themselves, are threatening or offensive, or come from external (non-UTAS) email
accounts.
When you write an email, you must include the following information. This helps teaching staff to
determine who you are and which unit you are talking about.

BEA705, Financial Institutions and Markets
Submission of Assessment Items
Lodging Assessment Items
Assignments must be submitted electronically through the relevant assignment drop box in MyLO.
Students must ensure that their name, student ID, unit code, tutorial time and tutor’s name (if
applicable) are clearly marked on the first page. If this information is missing, the assignment will
not be accepted and, therefore, will not be marked.
Where relevant, Unit Coordinators may also request students submit a paper version of their
assignments. Students will be advised by the Unit Coordinator of the appropriate process relevant
to each campus (Hobart, Launceston or Cradle Coast).
Please remember that you are responsible for lodging your assessment items on or before the due
date and time. We suggest you keep a copy. Even in ‘perfect’ systems, items sometimes go astray.
Late Assessment and Extension Policy
In this Policy:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
(a) ‘day’ or ‘days’ includes all calendar days, including weekends and public holidays;
(b) ‘late’ means after the due date and time; and
(c) ‘assessment items’ includes all internal non-examination based forms of assessment
This Policy applies to all students enrolled in TSBE Units at whatever Campus or geographical
location.
Students are expected to submit assessment items on or before the due date and time specified
in the relevant Unit Outline. The onus is on the student to prove the date and time of
submission.
Students who have a medical condition or special circumstances may apply for an extension.
Requests for extensions should, where possible, be made in writing to the Unit Coordinator on
or before the due date. Students will need to provide independent supporting documentation
to substantiate their claims.
Late submission of assessment items will incur a penalty of 10% of the total marks possible for
that piece of assessment for each day the assessment item is late unless an extension had been
granted on or before the relevant due date.
Assessment items submitted more than five (5) days late will not be accepted.
Academic staff do NOT have the discretion to waive a late penalty, subject to clause 4 above.
Academic Referencing and Style Guide
Before starting their assignments, students are advised to familiarise themselves with the following
electronic resources.
The first is the Harvard Referencing System Style Guide, which can be accessed from the UTAS
library: http://utas.libguides.com/content.php?pid=27520&sid=199808. The Harvard style is the
appropriate referencing style for this unit and the guide provides information on presentation of
assignments, including referencing styles. In your written work you will need to support your ideas
by referring to scholarly literature, works of art and/or inventions. It is important that you
understand how to correctly refer to the work of others and maintain academic integrity.
BEA705, Financial Institutions and Markets
Failure to appropriately acknowledge the ideas of others constitutes academic dishonesty
(plagiarism), a matter considered by the University of Tasmania as a serious offence.
The second is the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics’s Writing Assignments: A Guide, which
can be accessed at: http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources .. This guide
provides students with useful information about the structure and style of assignments in the TSBE.
Review of Assessment and Results
Review of Internal Assessment
It is expected that students will adhere to the following policy for a review of any piece of
continuous/internal assessment. The term continuous/internal assessment includes any assessment
task undertaken across the teaching phase of any unit (such as an assignment, a tutorial
presentation, and online discussion, and the like), as well as any capstone assignment or take-home
exam.
Within five (5) days of release of the assessment result a student may request a meeting with the
assessor for the purpose of an informal review of the result (in accordance with Academic
Assessment Rule No. 2 Clause 22 – www.utas.edu.au/academic-governance/academicsenate/academic-senate-rules . During the meeting, the student should be prepared to discuss
specifically the marks for the section(s) of the marking criteria they are disputing and why they
consider their mark(s) is/are incorrect. The assessor will provide a response to the request for
review within five (5) days of the meeting.
If the student is dissatisfied with the response they may request a formal review of internal
assessment by the Head of School, with the request being lodged within five (5) days of the informal
review being completed. A Review of Internal Assessment Form is available at the following link:
http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources/forms. The form must be
submitted to the TSBE Office.
Review of Final Exam/Result
In units with an invigilated exam students may request a review of their final exam result. You may
request to see your exam script after results have been released by completing the Access to Exam
Script Form, which is available from the TSBE Office, or at the following link –
http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources/forms. Your unit coordinator
will then contact you by email within five (5) working days of receipt of this form to go through your
exam script.
Should you require a review of your final result a formal request must be made only after
completing the review of exam script process list above. To comply with UTAS policy, this request
must be made within ten (10) days from the release of the final results (in accordance with
Academic Assessment Rule No. 2 Clause 22 – www.utas.edu.au/academic-governance/academicsenate/academic-senate-rules . You will need to complete an Application for Review of Assessment
Form, which can be accessed from http://www.utas.edu.au/exams/exam-and-results-forms. Note
that if you have passed the unit you will be required to pay $50 for this review.
The TSBE reserves the right to refuse a student request to review final examination scripts should
this process not be followed.

BEA705, Financial Institutions and Markets
Academic Misconduct and Plagiarism
Academic misconduct includes cheating, plagiarism, allowing another student to copy work for an
assignment or an examination, and any other conduct by which a student:
(a) seeks to gain, for themselves or for any other person, any academic advantage or advancement
to which they or that other person are not entitled; or
(b) improperly disadvantages any other student.
Students engaging in any form of academic misconduct may be dealt with under the Ordinance of
Student Discipline. This can include imposition of penalties that range from a deduction/cancellation
of marks to exclusion from a unit or the University. Details of penalties that can be imposed are
available in the Ordinance of Student Discipline – Part 3 Academic Misconduct, see
http://www.utas.edu.au/university-council/university-governance/ordinances.
Plagiarism is a form of cheating. It is taking and using someone else’s thoughts, writings or
inventions and representing them as your own, for example:
• using an author’s words without putting them in quotation marks and citing the source;
• using an author’s ideas without proper acknowledgment and citation; or
• copying another student’s work.
It also means using one’s own work from previously submitted assessment items if repeating a unit.
If you have any doubts about how to refer to the work of others in your assignments, please
consult your lecturer or tutor for relevant referencing guidelines, and the academic integrity
resources on the web at http://www.utas.edu.au/academic-integrity/The intentional copying of
someone else’s work as one’s own is a serious offence punishable by penalties that may range from
a fine or deduction/cancellation of marks and, in the most serious of cases, to exclusion from a unit,
a course, or the University.
The University and any persons authorised by the University may submit your assessable works to
a plagiarism checking service, to obtain a report on possible instances of plagiarism. Assessable
works may also be included in a reference database. It is a condition of this arrangement that the
original author’s permission is required before a work within the database can be viewed.
For further information on this statement and general referencing guidelines, see
www.utas.edu.au/plagiarism/ or follow the link under ‘Policy, Procedures and Feedback’ on the
Current Students homepage.
