ALM in Banking. Master Maintenance Asset liability Management
ALM basically refers to the process by which an institution manages its balance sheet in orderto allow for alternative interest rate and liquidity scenarios. ALM-is a first step in the long-term strategic planning process.-Considered as ALM is Appropriate for institutions planning function for (Banks, finance companies, leasing intermediate term companies, insurance companies, and others) ALM is concerned with strategic Balance sheet management Involving Managing Risk In a sense The various aspects of balance sheet Management of risks caused management deal with by changes in the interest planning, rates, Exchange rates and the Liquidity position of the bank As well as direction and Measure and Monitor control of the levels, changes risk, and provide and mixes of ALM Is approach to Quantify suitable strategies for these risks , that provides assets, liabilities, and capital their management. institutions with protection that makes credit risk, interest risk, and liquidity risk Acceptable. And--------The Role of Securitization--------- 3
The process will involve the following steps: •Firstly, Review the interest rate structure and compare the same to the interest/product pricing of both assets and liabilities. Interest rate. Foreign •Secondly, Examine the loan and the investment portfolios in the light of the foreign exchange/Liqui exchange risk and liquidity risk that might arise. dity risk •Thirdly, examine the probability of the credit risk and contingency risk that may Credit/contingency originate either due to rate fluctuations or otherwise and assess the quality of assets. Risk •Finally, review the actual performance against the projections made and analyze the reasons for any effect on the spreads. Actual performance The ALM technique so designed to manage the various risks will primarily aim to stabilize the short-term profits, long-term earnings and long run sustenance of the bank. *Credit risk: Risk describes the possibility in the repayment obligation by the borrowers of funds (delayed payment also facet of default risk) *Contingent risk :the off-balance sheet items such as guarantees,letter of credit ,underwriting Etc will give rise to the contingent risk. * 4

• Interest rate risk arises when the income of the bank is sensitive tothe interest rate fluctuations.•The banks results of operations are substantially dependent upon thelevel of banks net interest margins.• Interest rates are sensitive to many factors to influence the NII &NIM. Including the RBI’S monetary Policies, domestic and internationaleconomic and political conditions and other factors.• Changes in interest rates could affect the interest rates charged oninterest-earning assets and the Interest rates paid on interest-bearingliabilities in different ways 9
For each time bucket the GAP=interest rate sensitive assets (RSAs) --interest rate sensitive liabilities (RSLs). Gap Ratio = RSAs/ RSLs When interest rates change, the bank’s NII changes =>ΔNII = (RSAs - RSLs) x Δr ΔNII = GAP x Δr. A zero GAP will be the best choice either if the bank is unable to speculate interest rates accurately or if its capacity to absorb risk is close to zero. With a zero GAP, the bank is fully protected against both increases and decreases in interest rates as its NII will not change in both cases. This model measures the direction and extent of asset-liability mismatch through a funding or maturity GAP (or, simply, GAP). Assets and liabilities are grouped in this method into time buckets according to maturity.(the maturates are same and then select the gap period , which can be any where between month to a year .* Categorize :RSA &RSL are => requires balance sheet classification based on the rate sensitivity . Based on this banks should first able to forecast interest rate fluctuations .Identify RSA,RSL with in the first forecast period .thus all assets /liabilites are subject to repricing with in the planning horizon are categorize RSA.,RSL’S 10
During a selected gap period, the RSG will be positive when the RSAs are more than the RSLs, negative when the RSLs are in excess of the RSAs, and zero when the RSAs and RSLs are equal. Maintain a positive gap when the interest rates are rising; Maintain a negative gap when the interest rates are on a decline GAP analysis examines the sensitivity of the market value of Financial institutions Net worth(MVE) to change in interest rates . 11
Duration Analysis studies the effect of rate fluctuation on the market value of the assets and liabilities and net interest margins (NIM), with the help of duration. It also provides an approximate measure of market value interest elasticity. Duration analysis begins by computing the individual duration of each asset and liability and weighting the individual durations by the percentage of the asset or liability in the balance sheet to obtain the combined asset and liability duration. DUR gap = DUR assets – K liabilities DUR liabilities Where, K liabilities = Percentage of assets funded by liabilities DGAP directly indicates the effect of interest rate changes on the net worth of the institution. The funding GAP technique matches cash flows by structuring the short-term maturity buckets. 12
How the price of a bond changes in response to the interest rates Duration is defined as the average life of a financial instrument. Duration : A measure of the sensitivity of the price of a fixed income instrument to a change in interest rates . Duration is proportional to the interest rate risk Convexity is a measure of the curvature of how the price of a bond changes as the interest rate changes. Specifically, duration can be formulated as the first derivative of the price function of the bond with respect to the interest rate in question, and the convexity as the second derivative. Duration Analysis : Price risk and the Reinvestment risk The larger the value of the duration, the more sensitive is the price of that asset or liability to changes in interest rates. Bonds with higher durations carry more risk &have higher price volatility . 13
Scenario analysis: static. The sensitivity of an asset/liability can be assessed by the quantum of increase/decrease( Various scenarios) in the value of the assets/liabilities of varying maturities due to the interest rate fluctuations. Various Scenario Analysis :Discrete (continuous) distribution. Example :2%,3%,4%. 14
Simulation models help to introduce a dynamic element in the analysis of interest rate risk. These methods are used to simulate of variety different scenarios (Randomly-Distribution) for the portfolio of Target date Securities commonly used simulation techniques known as Monte Carlo – Methods , to value complex Derivatives and to measure risk . Simulation methods approximates the behavior of financial prices by using computer simulations to generate random price paths . What if scenarios, The absolute level of interest rates shift.

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. 16
Liquidity risk is the risk of being unable to raisenecessary funds (sufficient cash flows )from the market to meet operational and debt servicing requirements and to capitalize on opportunities for business expansion. Asset Liability Management (ALM) can be defined as a mechanism to address the liquidity risk faced by a Bank due to a mismatch between assets and liabilities either due to liquidity or changes in interest rates.Liquidity is aninstitution’s ability to Approaches :meet its liabilities Fund management ….managing surplus &either by borrowing orconverting assets.

Dimensions-Dimensions are used to arrange(Stratify)business data for processing and Reporting purposes.OFSAA Is Seeded with 6–Key processing Dimensions OU-Dimension Members-Each Dimension comprises of a list of BU-1 BU-2 BU-3 members who share common attributes or characteristic features. Head- count- 32 Attributes-Dimension attribute values are used to qualify dimension members. It provides for defining member characteristics. Curre used extensively in processing ncy 20
Dimensions are used to arrange business data for processing and reporting purposes. The General Ledger (GL) Dimension is used to store all GLs of the bank, in form of its members. GL Accounts used in the Financial Accounting systems of the organization, to store information of Profit and Loss and Balance Sheet items. Organizational Unit dimension stores all Org unit IDs of the bank, with their respective descriptions. An Organizational Unit is used as a segmentation and consolidating Reporting currency to Functional Currency. Financial element dimension stores all Financial Element IDs to be used in the Cash Flow Engine . Financial Element (FE) is used to distinguish business data based on its features. On an event date, OFSA computes the results of that event, the financial elements.
OFSAA supports 3 fundamentally different kinds of dimensionsKey Processing Dimensions: Are accessible as modeling dimensions for all of the OFSAA analytical engines. Are expressed as columns in nearly all of your business fact tables Support both attributes and hierarchies..Standard Dimensions: Standard dimensions may support attributes and/or hierarchies depending on how they are configured, but are not used as processing dimensions.Simple Dimensions(Code dimensions,)Simple dimensions are "lists of values" that support neither attributes nor hierarchies.Total 150 simple dimensions .
Hierarchies may be used to provide sophisticated stratification for either processing or reporting purposes. For example, an organizational hierarchy might start with a Division level containing Western Region, Eastern Region, and Southern Region; the next level down within the hierarchy might be state or county. A product hierarchy might begin with branches for Asset vs. Liability vs. Service products; under the Asset branch, you might define additional Overview of OFSAA Infrastructure branches for Mortgage Lending, Commercial Lending, Consumer Lending, etc. Hierarchies are used extensively in OFSAA models to assign methods to products and to support allocation methodologies.
FSI_D OFSAA- Application Process Data-Element HierarchyEliminate specified data /values at instrument Eliminate specified data /values at HierarchyLevel(FSI_D/Entity) before processing level( product/organization) before processing. Select any where in the hierarchy GROUP: Combination of Data- Hierarchy filters are widely used in cost Element filters allocation and segmentation rules
Group Filters may be used to combine multiple Data Element Filters Example: Data Element Filter #1 filtered on mortgage balances greater than 100,000 Data Element Filter #2 filtered on current mortgage interest rates greater than 6%, you could construct a Group Filter to utilize both Data Filters. In this case, the resulting Group Filter would constrain your data selection to mortgage balances greater than 100,000 AND current mortgage interest rates greater than 6%.
Based on yield curve The yield curve describes the relationship between a ,FI’s Can be issued particular redemption yield and a bond’s maturity. at Assets can be (Plotting the yields of bonds along the term structure will issued at higher give us our yield curve) maturity and liabilities issued at Yield curve usually plotted on Government –securities. lower maturity. It is important that only bonds from the same class of issuer or with the same degree of liquidity be used when plotting the yield curve. The yield curve is used as a benchmark for other debt in the market, such as mortgage rates or bank lending rates. The curve is also used to predict changes in economic output and growth, and it helps to give an idea of future interest rate change Current yield =coupon interest /Market price
Boot strapping :implied future rates, known as implied forward rates, or simply forward rates, can be derived from a given spot yield curve boot-strapping.) Zero –coupon yield curve :The zero-coupon (or spot) yield curve plots zero-coupon yields (or spot yields) against term to maturity YTM-yield curve : The curve itself is constructed by plotting the yield to maturity against the term to maturity for a group of bonds of the same class.Yield curve points are taken from zero coupon BondsZero –coupon bond : The holder of a zero-coupon bond only receives the Face value of thebond at maturity. A zero-coupon bond does not pay Coupons or interest payments, to thebondholder .YTM-Cash outflow(Equal to the price of the bond) =cash inflows(periodic interest couponare received on maturity) +Redemption Value (received on final maturity

Hybrid yield curves are built up from either one or more standard yield curves A Spread hybrid yield curve is defined as the difference between two standard yield curves. The "spread" type of hybrid yield curve may be useful in establishing liquidity risk or basis risk yield curves. Merged hybrid yield curves represent a blending of two or more underlying yield curves. In constructing a "merged" type of hybrid yield curve, you specify the percentage weighting applicable to each of the underlying standard hybrid yield curves. Moving average hybrid yield curves represent moving average data of a single underlying standard yield curve. These curves are typically used in Funds Transfer Pricing.

Product characteristic rules define payment, pricing and repricing characteristics for new business. They can used to specify calculation attributes for both existing accounts and new business.Product Profiles : Product Characteristic setup can be a time consuming process with more than 40 attributes, so Product Profiles allows to pre-define and save common product definitions and reference these definitions while defining Product Characteristic assumptions. Save common default values for the majority of required fieldsThe following Product Profiles are seeded during installation: Bond – Adjustable Rate, Bond – Fixed Rate, Credit Card, Discount Instrument, Lease, Loan – Adjustable Rate, Loan – Fixed Rate, Loan – Floating Rate, Loan – Negative Amortization, Savings, Term Deposit 39
Amortization : Paying off Debt in regular installments over a period of Time . Interest in arrears : Interest on loan which is due to be paid at the maturity date rather than periodically during the life of the loan . The interest leading up to the due date is payable but not yet paid . Interest in advance : borrowers can prepay the next years interest and claim it as a deduction when filing Taxes . Balloon payment : a type of loan which Is not fully amortized over its term . a balloon payment is required at the end of the term to repay the remaining principal of the loan . Negative Amortization: an increase in the principal balance of a loan caused by making payments that fail to cover the interest due Example : the periodic interest payment loan is 500,and a 400 payment may be paid contractually made .so remaining 100 is added to the Principal balance of the loan . OAS :is a discounting factor used for Market value & VAR (stochastic process ) Currency Exchange gain/loss: Model with Gross rates : Gross rates : used for prepayments & Amortization Net rates : used for income simulation &calculated for retained earnings in the auto balancing process

Mortgage: a mortgage is a loan secured by collateral of some of specified real estate property which obliges the borrower to make a series of payments. Mortgage is a contract , in which borrowers property is pledged as security for a loan , which is to be repaid on Installment Basis. (The mortgage gives the lender the right if the borrower defaults to ―foreclose ― on the loan and seize of the property in order to ensure that the debt is paid off ) The interest rate on the mortgage loan is called the mortgage rate or contract rate. Mortgage backed securities: MBS are backed by a pool of traditional residential mortgage loans called MBS . Asset Backed securities: Securities backed by loans other than traditional residential mortgage loans and backed by receivables are referred as ABS. 43

Devolvement and Recovery Behavior Split: with both absolute and Patterns: relative payment events. commonly used for estimating cash flows associated with Letters of Credit and Example : Guarantees. multiple sets of payment patterns These product types are typically under a single amortization code categorized as off balance sheet accounts. 45
Example of a loan that follows a seasonal payment pattern, in which the payment patterns for January, February and March are scheduled for interest- only payments. As revenues for the customer increase, the payment amount also increases. Therefore, the payments for April and May are 80% of the original payment, and June through September is 100% of the original payment. The payment decreases as the production season slows. The payment for October is decreased to 80% of the original payment, and the payments for November and December are decreased again to 50% of the original payment

Loan profile of a bank will generally in long term in nature . Large volume of funds will be blocked in project financing and asset financing activities of the Institution . Securitization is a an effective way to release the funds for further investments . Securitization denotes process of selling assets by the person holding it to an intermediary , who in turn will break such assets in to marketable securities . In securitization future cash flows from advances (like mortgages ) made by Bank are repackaged in to negotiable certificates and issued to the investors . This arrangement induces the liquidity to the highly liquid assets . In the process of securitization also reduces the Interest rate risk , associated to the rate fluctuation . Mortgage pass through security :is a security created when 1 or more holders of mortgages form a collection (pool) of mortgages and sell shares or participation certifications in the pool ( a pool may consist of several thousand or only a few mortgages) . When a mortgage is included in a pool of mortgages that is used as collateral for a mortgage pass through security , the mortgage is to be securitized . 53
Prepayment: A payment made in excess of monthly mortgage payment is called prepayment . Home owners do payoff all (entire outstanding balance) or part (partial pay down of Mortgage Balance) of their mortgage balance prior to the date. Prepayment Risk: One of the major business risks faced by financial institutions engaged in the business of lending is prepayment risk. Prepayments, the amount and the timing of cash flows from a mortgagee loan are not known with certainty. Borrowers might choose the Repay part or all of their loan obligations before the scheduled date. . Prepayment –Methods : we cannot estimate the prepayment as in the same monthly EMI’S . So project a cash flow , is to make some assumption about the prepayment rate over the life of the underlying mortgage pool . 56
Constant Prepayment Method: Calculates the prepayment amount as a flat percentage of the current balance. Conditional Prepayment Rate (CPR) CPR is a annual prepayment rate. To estimate monthly prepayments, the CPR must be converted in to a monthly prepayment rate, commonly referred to as the Single monthly mortality Rate (SMM) SMM= 1-(1-CPR)^1/12.Public Securities Association Standard(PSA)–Method: expressed as monthly series of CPR’s. Assumes Prepayments are low for a newly originated mortgaged balance and then will speed up as the mortgages become seasoned.Arctangent Calculation Method: Analyze the prepayment behavior.The Arctangent Calculation method uses the Arctangent mathematical function to describe the relationship between prepayment rates and spreads (coupon rate less market rate).Specifically: CPRt = k1 - (k2 * ATAN(k3 * (-Ct/Mt + k4)))where CPRt = annual prepayment rate in period t Ct = coupon in period t Mt = market rate in period t k1 - k4 = user defined coefficients 57
The arctangent formula describes the relationship between prepayments and the ratio of coupon rate to market rate.For 100% PSA1) 0.2% CPR =for the first month.2) Increased by 0.2%peryear per month for the next 30 months ..until it reaches 0.6%3) A 6% CPR for the remaining months
Curtailment: The prepayment could be the pay-off the entire outstanding balance or a partial pay down of the mortgage balance. When the pre -payment is not for the entire outstanding balance it is called curtailment . Refinance: Refinancing is the tendency of the borrower to pre- close a costly loan and see the property refinanced with a cheaper loan . Borrowers refinance for several reasons: to reduce the rate, reduce payments, reduce risk of future rate increases, and raise cash. Seasonality: Seasonality pattern is related to activity in the primary housing market, with home buying activity increasing in the spring, and gradually reaching a peak in the late summer. Home buying activity declines in the fall and winter. Mirroring this activity are prepayments that results from the turnover of housing as home buyers sell their existing homes and purchase new ones. 59
Early Redemption(Early withdrawal): The Repurchase of a bond by the issuer before it matures. Early redemption fees are often charged in the early years of many fixed rate ,capped rate or cash back mortgages, when they are repaid early. If you are working with deposit products, it is possible to define Early Redemption assumptions within the Prepayment Rule. 60
Conditional Assumptions can be applied only on detailed accounts (data stored in the Instrument Tables) and reference only the Cash Flow and Dimension columns that are part of the Instrument Tables. Conditional Assumptions are ignored when processing forecast balances. You can define prepayment methodologies using IF-THEN-ELSE logic based on the underlying characteristics of your financial instruments, such as dates, rates, balances, and code values. 61
Use currency exchange rate forecasts to account for the effects of currency fluctuations on income(RSA,RSL ‘s for change in NII) Use interest rate forecasts to project cash flows, including pricing new business, re-pricing existing business, calculating prepayments, and determining discount methods. Use Economic Indicator forecasts to include in behavioral modeling and scenario/stress analysis. Scenarios : You can also set minimum rates (or floors) on any rule created for Currency, Interest Rate. For example, if you want to run a -200bp rate scenario, with short term rates <2%, you can set the minimum rate to floor at 0%, although negative rates are allowed if desired.

Derivatives are used to minimize Interest Rate Risk by using hedging or speculation.With respect to the ALM process, options can be used for reducing risk and enhancing yield.Call option strategies are profitable in bullish(if the market rallies ) interest rate scenarios with the maximum loss restrictedto the upfront premium.Put options can be used to provide insurance against price declines, with limited risk if the opposite occurs. A futures contract is an agreement between a buyer and seller to exchange a fixed quantity of a financial asset at an agreed price on a specified date. Interest rate futures (IRF) can be used to control the risk associated asset liability GAP Interest rate swaps (IRS) represent a contractual agreement between a financial institution and a counterparty to exchange cash flows at periodic intervals, based on a notional amount. By arranging for another party to assume its interest payments, a bank can put in place such a hedge. Financial institutions can use such swaps to synthetically convert floating rate liabilities to fixed rate liabilities. Example :In case of a falling interest rate scenario, prepayment will increase.
With the Transaction Strategy rules you can Test the impact of various hedging strategies that are integrated with Basic scenario modeling assumptions. Hedging :Try to minimize Risk (IRR/ER), not bothered about profits. Arbitration :Generate profits –Is a process of where you try to take the advantage of market discrepancies (look profits by minimize risk ) These transaction strategies will be used to measured the interest rate risk using derivative instruments like Futures ,options, Forward contracts and swaps . 79
A futures contract is a type of derivative instrument, or financial contract, in which two parties agree to transact a set of financial instruments or physical commodities for future delivery at a particular price. If you buy a futures contract, you are basically agreeing to buy something that a seller has not yet produced for a set price. The futures market is extremely Liquid ,risky and complex by nature.Futures Position : A futures contract is an agreement between two parties: A short position - the party who agrees to deliver a commodity . A long position - the party who agrees to receive a commodity. The profits and losses of a futures contract depend on the daily movements of the market for that contract and are calculated on a daily basis 81
Futures can be used either to hedge or to speculate on the price movement of the underlying asset.Currency Futures: A transferable futures contract that specifies the price at which a currency can be bought or sold at a future date. Currency future contracts allow investors to hedge against foreign exchange risk.Interest rate futures : A futures contract with an underlying instrument that pays interest. An interest rate future is a contract between the buyer and seller agreeing to the future delivery of any interest-bearing asset. The interest rate future(IRF) allows the buyer and seller to lock in the price of the interest-bearing asset for a future date. 82
ProfitabilityThis financial contract gives aright to its holder to enter into atrade at or before a futurespecified date. 83
An option is a right to buy or sell an underlying asset at a future date at an agreed price.A financial derivative that represents a contract sold by one party (option writer) to anotherparty (option holder). Call Option :An option contract is called a ‘call option’, if the writer gives the buyer of the option the right to purchase from him the underlying asset. Put Option :An option contract is said to be a ‘put option,’ if the writer gives the buyer of the option the right to sell the underlying asset. Exercise Date :The date at which the contract matures. Strike Price(Exercise Price) :At the time of entering into the contract, the parties agree upon a price at which the underlying asset may be bought or sold. 84
American options :An options, can be exercised on any day during the expiration period are called American options. European options :can be exercised only on the last day(always) of the expiration period. Bermuda option : A type of exotic option that can be exercised only on predetermined dates, typically every month. Bermuda options are a combination of American and European options. Bermuda options are exercisable at the date of expiration, and on certain specified dates that occur between the purchase date and the date of expiration. 85
At-the-money: Exercise price is equal to the current spot price In-the-money: Call option : s>k strike price is below the current spot price of the underlying asset; Put option : k>s The strike price is above the current spot price of the underlying asset. Out-of-the-money: Call option : k>s the strike price is above the spot price of the underlying asset Put option : s>k the strike price is below the current spot price of the underlying asset. The buyer makes a loss if he exercises the option out-of-the-money. Position Limit: The maximum number of options contracts per investor. Exercise Limit: The maximum number of contracts that can be exercised per investor. 86
Both are used in Montecarlo analytics. FLOOR CAP If interest rates rise above the agreed cap rate then A floor is an agreement where the seller agreesthe seller pays the difference between the cap rate to compensate the buyer if interest rates falland the interest rate to the purchaser. below the agreed upon floor rate. A cap is usually bought to hedge against a rise ininterest rates and yet is not a part of the loan It is similar to a cap, but ensures that if theagreement and may be bought from a completely interest rate falls below a certain agreed floordifferent bank/writer. limit, the floor limit interest rate will be paid
Intrinsic Value :is the value of the profits that are likely from the option. The Intrinsic Value is also the value of an option takes when it is in-the-money. For a call it is max (0, S – k) For a put it is max (0, k – S) where S and k are spot price and strike price of the underlying asset respectively. Time Value The difference between the option premium and the intrinsic value. 88
Interest rate swaps Currency swaps Basis swap Forward rate swapsSwap :Refers to the simultaneous purchase and sale of currency(at agreedexchanged rate ) for different maturities or vice versa 89
There are two parties to a swap transaction, fixed rate payer/receiver and floating rate receiver/payer. A fixed rate payer is the provider of floating rate funds and Hence the purchasers(Buyer ) of the swap lose when interest rate falls and gain when interest rate rises. A floating rate payer is the provider of fixed rate funds and Hence the seller of the swap loses when interest rate rises and gains when interest rate falls 90
Plain Vanilla or coupon or Generic Swap: The plain vanilla swaps are those swaps where fixed rate obligations are exchanged for floating rate obligations over a specific period of time on a notional principal Basis Swap: A swap in which a stream of floating interest rates are exchanged for another stream of floating interest rates, is known as basis swap Interest rate swap : An interest rate swap is defined as an agreement between two or more parties who agree to exchange interest payments over a specific time period on agreed terms. The interest rates agreed may be fixed or floating. currency swap A currency swap is a contract involving exchange of interest payments on a loan in one currency for fixed or floating interest payments on equivalent loan in a different currency. Currency swaps may or may not involve initial exchange of principal. A plain vanilla currency swap is a fixed-fixed currency swap in which each party pays a fixed payment on the loan taken by them Forward Swaps Forward swaps are those swaps in which the commencement date is set as a future date. Thus, it helps in locking the swap rates and use them later as and when needed. Forward swaps are also known as deferred swaps . Amortizing Swaps If the interest rates are fairly stable then the floating payments are also reduced over time. This swap is particularly useful if a swap is undertaken to manage the risk arising from mortgage loans. 91
An interest rate swap (IRS) is a contract that exchanges interest payments between two differently indexed legs, of which one is usually fixed whereas the other one is floating. When the fixed leg is paid and the floating leg is received the interest rate swap is termed payer IRS and in the other case receiver IRS.
Stochastic Rate index :The purpose of the Stochastic Rate Indexing Rule is to establish relationships between a risk-free Interest Rate Code (IRCs) and other interest rate codes or Indexes used for re-pricing existing business and pricing new business. Example of non risk free (dependent) curves are: LIBOR ,Prime rate The Stochastic Rate Indexing rule is a required assumption rule, that you select within a Stochastic ALM Process to calculate Value at Risk and Earnings at Risk. 93
Static Analysis is the fundamental platform on which the ALM function of the Bank is built. It is generally observed that a large number of Banks that offer the conventional banking products are able to address their considerations of adequate liquidity and sources of short term funds with the Static ALM analysis. Banks are able to fine tune any assumptions in order to meet their strategic objectives. 94
Dynamic ALM: is practiced by Banks where the market environment is extremely active and very competitive and often require the bank to realign their business strategies. It is also useful when the complexity of operations is high. Accurate evaluation of current exposures of asset and liability portfolios to interest rate risk. Changes in multiple target variables such as net interest income, capital adequacy, and liquidity . Future gaps 95
