Dolenský, Ondřej ; Kunertová, Tereza (advisor) ; Svobodová, Magdaléna (referee)
(EN) The main aim of this diploma thesis is to critically assess the implications of the revised Directive on Payment Services (PSD2) for Banking and the Fintech Industry. In order to do so, the thesis firstly focuses on the current banking system together with the recent problems associated with the Global financial crisis of 2007-2008, which have given rise to substantial changes of the regulation of banking system at the EU level. Subsequently, the thesis compares the banking system with the rising financial technology (Fintech) industry and provides an overview of this industry together with regulation thereof. The provided overview of Banking and the Fintech Industry is followed by the analysis of the original Directive on Payment Services (PSD) and the PSD2, which also includes relevant case-law of the CJEU. Finally, the last part of the thesis assesses the possible implications of the PSD2, while it takes into account other relevant factors that may affect the potential development of the Fintech Industry. From the respective analysis it becomes apparent that the regulation of the banking system at the EU level has been strengthened in response to the Global financial crisis given that the insufficient regulation of banking was one of the main causes of the Global financial crisis....
The Influence of Foreign Bank Ownership on the Banking System in the Czech Republic
Čermák, Jakub ; Polák, Petr (advisor) ; Hejlová, Hana (referee)
The intention of the thesis is to analyse the Czech banking sector between the years 2003 and 2017 and focus on the behaviour of the foreign banks. Analysing exhaustive quarterly data from the CNB internal database, it is shown that during the studied period, the foreign banks controlled 90% to 96% of the total banking assets in the country. The lending activities of the foreign banks are found procyclical, in contrast to the countercyclical activities of the Czech banks. Contrary to the expectations, corporate loans of the foreign banks do not show a higher degree of procyclicality than the other types of loans. Furthermore, no evidence is found for the claim that the foreign banks' lending patterns follow the business cycles of the home countries of these banks. However, the relation between the GDP growth of the foreign banks' home countries and the foreign banks' loan growth became significant during the global financial crisis between 2008 and 2009. Out of the bank performance ratios, the equity-to-assets ratio is revealed to significantly influence the loan growth of the foreign banks.

Chabr, Jan ; Liška, Petr (advisor) ; Elek, Štefan (referee)
The letter of credit contract and the collection contract The diploma thesis deals with the topic of the Direct Debit Contract and the Letter of Credit. A Letter of Credit is a special payment instrument issued as a rule by a bank that the principal has undertaken to pay to the person in whose interest the Letter of Credit is open and designated as the authorized amount up to the amount agreed. The Direct Debit is the commitment of the collector of receivables to obtain from the third party a receipt of a sum of money or other Direct Debit. Current legislation, contained in the Civil Code, took over the legal regulation of the Letter of Credit and the Direct Debit from the Commercial Code without any major changes. Both institutes show a number of identical and different elements. From a practical point of view, it is not possible to look for serious application problems in the Letter of Credit or Direct Debit. Keywords: Letter of Credit, Direct Debit, Banking, Bank, Payment Instruments, The Collection Contract

Analysis of the impact of Retail bank’s price-setting policy change
Lehocký, Dominik ; Zouhar, Jan (advisor) ; Dlouhá, Zuzana (referee)
The environment of low interest rates results in a sharp competition in the banking industry. To stay competitive, banks must be able to respond to rival offers practically immediately. For this purpose, so-called price exceptions are being used. Their use, however, results in a large amount of administrative burden. To alleviate this administrative burden, the bankers were given some competencies regarding pricing. There is a concern, however that this change may be accepted as a flat-rate price cut. It is for this reason that it is necessary to analyse on real data how this change in the internal policy of Retail Bank is manifested. The problem, however, is that there are several factors that cannot always be recorded in the process of data collection. This is precisely why this analysis estimates the impact of new competences using multilevel models. These allow for a certain form of variability for specific groups of observations and consider the presence of unattended factors.
