In this paper, we study how a competitive banking firm can use a variable deposit rate to insure against profit risk from risky assets and how the utility of the bank manager is affected by this kind of risk management policy. Furthermore, we study the advantage of a risk management policy which is based on financial hedging. Finally, we answer the question which of these risk management policies the bank manager prefers.
