Describe in detail the types of off-balance-sheet activities undertaken by any bank?

commercial banks' desire to generate additional incomes also engage in the provision of a variety of services collectively called OFF-BALANCE-SHEET activites

1 Answer

Off-balance sheet activity describes an asset or debt not on the bank's balance sheet. A financial institution can enhance its revenue by providing additional services.

These kinds of activities often include asset management services. The securities managed are not on the bank's balance sheet as they are owned by the clients. Banks may provide other services that do not create assets or liabilities for the bank, such as depository or brokerage services.
