Europe and Japan have both adopted negative interest rate policies as part of their monetary easing measures. However, despite the benefits that are claimed to be associated with increased lending demand, significant concerns exist regarding an increased burden on private financial institutions as a result of the application to their excess reserves. In this paper, we focus on the risks associated with increased investment of surplus funds for the operation of financial institutions. We propose an agent-based model for interlocking specific bankruptcy based on changes in financial situations as a result of market price fluctuations involving assets held by financial institutions. To extend the proposed model to handle macro market shocks, we describe decision making regarding funds that are surplus to the operation of financial institutions. Additionally, we analyze the impact of price declines involving marketable assets on financial systems.
