2 Liquidity Risk Having better understood the term liquidity we move to defining liquidity risk. 1 can help. Liquidity risk can be explained diagrammatically as the risk related to the previously mentioned inflows and outflows. A bank can have sources of new liquidity dry up; for instance the bank may not be able to issue new bonds or a lesser amount of new deposits are placed with the bank. On the outflow tap the risk could develop when higher than expected loan growth occurs or higher amounts of deposits are withdrawn than expected.

Any attempt to have a uniform set of minimum liquidity quantum can build up false comfort in the system as it will effectively not be able to take into account the quality and availability of the secondary liquidity. For instance, take a bank with a medium mismatch asset–liability profile but a large proportion of its assets in highly liquid and sellable assets. To require the bank to hold a large buffer when it can easily transform its assets to cash would be the wrong requirement. It could even have the opposite effect, at least when implemented, as the action of one bank to conserve or increase liquidity can collectively have the effect of reducing liquidity in the market as a whole.

All firms have liquidity risk in their operations but banks differ from other corporations in a fundamental way as their idiosyncratic risk can turn into a systemic risk with wider implications, whereas in other sectors a failure of one firm does not necessary impact on another. On the contrary, the failure of a competitor could benefit other firms within the industry. When banks address their liquidity risk it can actually affect other banks in a negative way, again making liquidity risk different from other types of risk.
