  • 291. Liquidity Risk • Liquidity risk arises from funding of long term assets by short term liabilities, thus making the liabilities subject to refinancing. • Bank’s liquidity management is the process of generating funds to meet contractual or relationship obligations at reasonable prices at all times. • Liquidity Management is the ability of bank to ensure that its liabilities are met as they become due. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 292. Liquidity Risk Management • Liquidity positions of bank should be measured on an ongoing basis. • A standard tool for measuring and managing net funding requirements, is the use of maturity ladder and calculation of cumulative surplus or deficit of funds as selected maturity dates is adopted. Deepesh Mahajan

  • 294. Statement -Structural Liquidity • All Assets & Liabilities to be reported as per their maturity profile into 8 maturity Buckets: 1. 1 to 14 days. 2. 15 to 28 days. 3. 29 days and up to 3 months. 4. Over 3 months and up to 6 months. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 295. Structural Liquidity 5. Over 6 months and up to 1 year. 6. Over 1 year and up to 3 years. 7. Over 3 years and up to 5 years. 8. Over 5 years. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 296. Statement -Structural Liquidity • Places all cash inflows and outflows in the maturity ladder as per residual maturity. • Maturing Liability: cash outflow. • Maturing Assets : Cash Inflow. • Classified in to 8 time buckets. • Mismatches in the first two buckets not to exceed 20% of outflows. • Shows the structure as of a particular date. • Banks can fix higher tolerance level for other maturity buckets.

  • 298. Addressing the mismatches • Mismatches can be positive or negative. • Positive Mismatch: M.A.>M.L. and Negative Mismatch M.L.>M.A. • In case of +ve mismatch, excess liquidity can be deployed in money market instruments, creating new assets & investment swaps etc. • For –ve mismatch, it can be financed from market borrowings (Call/Term), Bills rediscounting, Repos & deployment of foreign currency converted into rupee. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 299. Currency Risk • The increased capital flows from different nations following deregulation have contributed to increase in the volume of transactions. • Dealing in different currencies brings opportunities as well as risk. • To prevent this banks have been setting up overnight limits and undertaking active day time trading. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 300. • Value at Risk approach to be used to measure the risk associated with forward exposures. Value at Risk estimates probability of portfolio losses based on the statistical analysis of historical price trends and volatilities. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 301. Interest Rate Risk • Interest Rate risk is the exposure of a bank’s financial conditions to adverse movements of interest rates. • Though this is normal part of banking business, excessive interest rate risk can pose a significant threat to a bank’s earnings and capital base. • Changes in interest rates also affect the underlying value of the bank’s assets, liabilities and off-balance-sheet item. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 302. • Interest rate risk refers to volatility in Net Interest Income (NII) or variations in Net Interest Margin(NIM). • NIM = (Interest income – Interest expense) / Earning assets. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 303. Sources of Interest Rate Risk Deepesh Mahajan
  • 304. • Re-pricing Risk: The assets and liabilities could re-price at different dates and might be of different time period. For example, a loan on the asset side could re-price at three-monthly intervals whereas the deposit could be at a fixed interest rate or a variable rate, but re- pricing half-yearly. • Basis Risk: The assets could be based on LIBOR rates whereas the liabilities could be based on Treasury rates or a Swap market rate. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 305. • Yield Curve Risk: The changes are not always parallel but it could be a twist around a particular tenor and thereby affecting different maturities differently. • Option Risk: Exercise of options impacts the financial institutions by giving rise to premature release of funds that have to be deployed in unfavourable market conditions and loss of profit on account of foreclosure of loans that earned a good spread. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 306. Risk Measurement Techniques • Various techniques for measuring exposure of banks to interest rate risks – Maturity Gap Analysis. – Duration. – Simulation. – Value at Risk. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 307. Maturity gap method (IRS) THREE OPTIONS: • A) Rate Sensitive Assets>Rate Sensitive Liabilities= Positive Gap • B) Rate Sensitive Assets<Rate Sensitive Liabilities = Negative Gap • C) Rate Sensitive Assets=Rate Sensitive Liabilities = Zero Gap Deepesh Mahajan
  • 308. Gap Analysis • Simple maturity/re-pricing Schedules can be used to generate simple indicators of interest rate risk sensitivity of both earnings and economic value to changing interest rates - If a negative gap occurs (RSA<RSL) in given time band, an increase in market interest rates could cause a decline in NII - conversely, a positive gap (RSA>RSL) in a given time band, an decrease in market interest rates could cause a decline in NII Deepesh Mahajan
  • 309. • The basic weakness with this model is that this method takes into account only the book value of assets and liabilities and hence ignores their market value. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 310. Duration Analysis • It basically refers to the average life of the asset or the liability. • It is the weighted average time to maturity of all the preset values of cash flows. • The larger the value of the duration, the more sensitive is the price of that asset or liability to changes in interest rates. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 311. • As per the above equation, the bank will be immunized from interest rate risk if the duration gap between assets and the liabilities is zero. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 312. Simulation • Basically simulation models utilize computer power to provide what if scenarios, for example: What if: – The absolute level of interest rates shift. – Marketing plans are under-or-over achieved. – Margins achieved in the past are not sustained/improved. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 313. – Bad debt and prepayment levels change in different interest rate scenarios. – There are changes in the funding mix e.g.: an increasing reliance on short-term funds for balance sheet growth. • This dynamic capability adds value to this method and improves the quality of information available to the management. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 314. Value at Risk (VAR) • Refers to the maximum expected loss that a bank can suffer in market value or income: – Over a given time horizon, – Under normal market conditions, – At a given level or certainty • It enables the calculation of market risk of a portfolio for which no historical data exists. VAR serves as Information Reporting to stakeholders. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 315. • It enables one to calculate the net worth of the organization at any particular point of time so that it is possible to focus on long- term risk implications of decisions that have already been taken or that are going to be taken. Deepesh Mahajan

  • 317. About the BIS Established on 17 May 1930. The BIS is the world’s oldest international financial organization. Head office is in Basel, Switzerland and representative offices in Hong Kong SAR and in Mexico City. The BIS currently employs around 550 staff from 50 countries. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 318. BCBS • Basel committee on Banking Supervision: • A set of agreements. • Regulations and recommendations on Credit risk , market risk and operational risk. • Purpose – to have enough capital on account to meet obligations and absorb unexpected losses. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 319. BASEL - I • In 1988, the Basel Committee(BCBS) in Basel, Switzerland, published a set of minimal capital requirements for banks, known as 1988 Basel Accord or Basel I. • Primary focus on credit risk • Assets of banks were classified and grouped in five categories to credit risk weights of zero ‘0’, 10, 20, 50 and up to 100%. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 320. • Assets like cash and coins usually have zero risk weight, while unsecured loans might have a risk weight of 100%. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 321. Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) • Expressed as a percentage of a bank's risk weighted credit exposures. • Also known as "Capital to Risk Weighted Assets Ratio (CRAR). • CAR = Capital / Risk. • Ratio is used to protect depositors and promote the stability and efficiency of financial systems around the world. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 322. Capital Base
  • 323. Purpose of Basel I • Strengthen the stability of international banking system. • Set up a fair and a consistent international banking system in order to decrease competitive inequality among international banks. • Achievement : To set up a minimum risk- based capital adequacy applying to all banks and governments in the world. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 324. Basel & Indian Banking System • Basel Accord I was established in 1988 and was implemented by 1992 in India. • over 3 years – banks with branches abroad were required to comply fully by end March 1994 and the other banks were required to comply by end March 1996. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 325. Basel & Indian Banking System • RBI norms on capital adequacy at 9% are more stringent than Basel Committee stipulation of 8%. • Commercial Banks , Cooperative Banks and Regional rural banks s have different RBI guidelines. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 326. Pitfalls of Basel I Limited differentiation of credit risk (0%, 20%, 50% and 100%) Static measure of default risk The assumption that a minimum 8% capital ratio is sufficient to protect banks from failure does not take into account the changing nature of default risk. No recognition of term-structure of credit risk The capital charges are set at the same level regardless of the maturity of a credit exposure. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 327. Simplified calculation of potential future counterparty risk The current capital requirements ignore the different level of risks associated with different currencies and macroeconomic risk. In other words, it assumes a common market to all actors, which is not true in reality. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 328. • Lack of recognition of portfolio diversification effects In reality, the sum of individual risk exposures is not the same as the risk reduction through portfolio diversification. Therefore, summing all risks might provide incorrect judgment of risk. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 329. Conclusion • Basel 1- Milestone in Finance and Banking History. • It launched the trend toward increasing risk modeling research. • However, its over-simplified calculations, and classifications have simultaneously called for its disappearance, paving the way for the Basel II Capital Accord. • It led to further agreements as the symbol of the continuous refinement of risk and capital. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 330. BASEL II Lecture 27 Deepesh Mahajan
  • 331. Basel II Norms • Basel II was intended : –to create an international standard for banking regulators. –to maintain sufficient consistency of regulations. –protect the international financial system. • Addition of operational risk in the existing norms. • Defined new calculations of credit risk • Ensuring that capital allocation is more risk sensitive. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 332. First Pillar • The first pillar sets out minimum capital requirement. The new framework maintains minimum capital requirement of 8% of risk assets. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 333. Second Pillar • Supervisory review process has been introduced to ensure not only those banks have adequate capital to support all the risks, but also to encourage them to develop and use better risk management techniques in monitoring and managing their risks. Deepesh Mahajan
  • 334. Third Pillar • Market discipline imposes strong incentives to banks to conduct their business in a safe, sound and effective manner. • It is proposed to be effected through a series of disclosure requirements on capital, risk exposure etc. so that market participants can assess a bank’s capital adequacy. • This is not introduced in India.

  • 340. Failure of BASEL II • Banks defined their own risk metrics and derivative investments. • Depends on good underlying data. • Most of the institutional cogs in the credit crisis aren’t covered. • No independent standard. • Wrong assumptions in case of mortgage- related risk calculations. • Inadequate level of capital required by the new discipline.
