Abstract:   (1944 Views)

In this study a simulation analysis is applied to address the change in banks liquidity demand due to a shift in settlement method brought about by adopting Real Time Gross Settlement System. At the first stage of this research, we use a data generator model along with some information on the time distribution of coded cheques over a working day in order to produce intraday flow of payments. Then the output is fed to the Bank of Finland Payment Settlement Simulator (BoF-PSS) to estimate banks intraday liquidity needs in Satna. The results indicate the movement towards a real time gross-settlement system increases the liquidity demand of Iranian banks in payment system by about 66 percent.
