Risk management in financial institution

  1. 1. CHAPTER 23 Risk Management in Financial Institutions Copyright © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved.
  2. 2. Chapter Preview  We examine how financial institutions manage credit risk, default risk, etc. We explore the tools available to managers to measure these risks and strategies to reduce them. Topics include: ─ Managing Credit Risk ─ Managing Interest-Rate Risk © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-2
  3. 3. Managing Credit Risk  A major part of the business of financial institutions is making loans, and the major risk with loans is that the borrow will not repay.  Credit risk is the risk that a borrower will not repay a loan according to the terms of the loan, either defaulting entirely or making late payments of interest or principal. © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-3
  4. 4. Managing Credit Risk  Once again, the concepts of adverse selection and moral hazard will provide our framework to understand the principles financial managers must follow to minimize credit risk, yet make successful loans. © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-4
  5. 5. Managing Credit Risk  Solving Asymmetric Information Problems: 1.Screening and Monitoring: ─ collecting reliable information about prospective borrowers. This has also lead some institutions to specialize in regions or industries, gaining expertise in evaluating particular firms ─ also involves requiring certain actions, or prohibiting others, and then periodically verifying that the borrower is complying with the terms of the loan contract. © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-5
  6. 6. Managing Credit Risk  Specialization in Lending helps in screening. It is easier to collect data on local firms and firms in specific industries. It allows them to better predict problems by having better industry and location knowledge. © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-6
  7. 7. Managing Credit Risk  Monitoring and Enforcement also helps. Financial institutions write protective covenants into loans contracts and actively manage them to ensure that borrowers are not taking risks at their expense. © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-7
  8. 8. Managing Credit Risk 2. Long-term Customer Relationships: past information contained in checking accounts, savings accounts, and previous loans provides valuable information to more easily determine credit worthiness. © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-8
  9. 9. Managing Credit Risk 3. Loan Commitments: arrangements where the bank agrees to provide a loan up to a fixed amount, whenever the firm requests the loan. 4. Collateral: a pledge of property or other assets that must be surrendered if the terms of the loan are not met ( the loans are called secured loans). © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-9
  10. 10. Managing Credit Risk 5. Compensating Balances: reserves that a borrower must maintain in an account that act as collateral should the borrower default. 6. Credit Rationing:  lenders will refuse to lend to some borrowers, regardless of how much interest they are willing to pay, or  lenders will only finance part of a project, requiring that the remaining part come from equity financing. © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-10
  11. 11. Managing Interest-Rate Risk  Financial institutions, banks in particular, specialize in earning a higher rate of return on their assets relative to the interest paid on their liabilities.  As interest rate volatility increased in the last 20 years, interest-rate risk exposure has become a concern for financial institutions. © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-11
  12. 12. Managing Interest-Rate Risk  To see how financial institutions can measure and manage interest-rate risk exposure, we will examine the balance sheet for First National Bank (next slide).  We will develop two tools, (1) Income Gap Analysis and (2) Duration Gap Analysis, to assist the financial manager in this effort. © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall.

  14. 14. Income Gap Analysis: Determining Rate Sensitive Items for First National Bank © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-14
  15. 15. Income Gap Analysis: Determining Rate Sensitive Items for First National Bank Rate-Sensitive Assets = $5m + $ 10m + $15m + 20% × $20m RSA = $32m Rate-Sensitive Liabs = $5m + $25m + $5m + $10m + 10% × $15m + 20% × $15m RSL = $49.5m if i ↑ 5% ⇒ Asset Income Liability Costs Income = +5% × $32.0m = +5% × $49.5m = $1.6m − $ 2.5 © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. = +$ 1.6m = +$ 2.5m = −$ 0.9m Estimate of % of checkable deposits and savings accounts that will experience rate change 23-15
  16. 16. Income Gap Analysis If RSL > RSA, i ↑ results in: NIM ↓, Income ↓ GAP = RSA − RSL = $32.0m − $49.5m = −$17.5m Income = GAP × i = −$17.5m × 5% = −$0.9m This is essentially a short-term focus on interest-rate risk exposure. A longer-term focus uses duration gap analysis. © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-16
  17. 17. Duration Gap Analysis  Owners and managers do care about the impact of interest rate exposure on current net income.  They are also interested in the impact of interest rate changes on the market value of balance sheet items and on net worth.  The concept of duration, which first appeared in chapter 3, plays a role here. © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-17
  18. 18. Duration Gap Analysis  Duration Gap Analysis: measures the sensitivity of a bank’s current year net income to changes in interest rate.  Requires determining the duration for assets and liabilities, items whose market value will change as interest rates change. Let’s see how this looks for First National Bank. © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-18
  19. 19. Duration of First National Bank's Assets and Liabilities
  20. 20. Duration Gap Analysis  The basic equation for determining the change in market value for assets or liabilities is: or: © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-20
  21. 21. Duration Gap Analysis  Consider a change in rates from 10% to 11%. Using the value from Table 23.1, we see:  Assets: © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-21
  22. 22. Duration Gap Analysis  Liabilities:  Net Worth: © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-22
  23. 23. Duration Gap Analysis  For a rate change from 10% to 11%, the net worth of First National Bank will fall, changing by −$1.6m.  Recall from the balance sheet that First National Bank has “Bank capital” totaling $5m. Following such a dramatic change in rate, the capital would fall to $3.4m. © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-23
  24. 24. Managing Interest-Rate Risk  Strategies for Managing Interest-Rate Risk ─ In example above, shorten duration of bank assets or lengthen duration of bank liabilities ─ To completely immunize net worth from interest-rate risk, set DURgap = 0 © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-24
  25. 25. Managing Interest-Rate Risk  Problems with GAP Analysis ─ Assumes slope of yield curve unchanged and flat, but http://stockcharts.com/charts/YieldCurve.html ─ Manager estimates % of fixed rate assets and liabilities that are rate sensitive © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall. All rights reserved. 23-25
  26. 26. Chapter Summary  Managing Credit Risk: basic techniques for managing relationships and rationing credit were reviewed.  Managing Interest-Rate Risk: the essential techniques of measuring interest-rate risk for both income and capital affects were presented. © 2012 Pearson Prentice Hall.
