                 Wallet Sizing - How to measure client potential

   Wallet sizing is the exercise of estimating, via client interviews and market data, how
    much is the total amount of financial services to be acquired by a client.
   After establishing the wallet potential the client service team estimates how much of
    this wallet could be won and which strategy need to be set to achieve it.
   After agreeing on the client strategy joint targets are set by the relationship manager
    and the product teams that will be the basis of their performance review
   Client results are tracked via a MIS system that recognizes 100% of the revenues for
    the relationship manager despite of the product or country where it is booked.
   Capital & Credit decisions are made taking in consideration such wallet exercise
    among other metrics like Economic Profit, Rating outlook, Sector concentration etc...
   Main benefit of such wallet exercise is to be the basis of a client led strategy that
    emphasiszes long term relationship gains instead of short term product returns.

                                        Economic Profit as Fundamental Driver

Economic Capital (EC) = The economic capital expresses the risk on the transaction. Given a confidence level
  of 99.95% (equates to a A- rating), it is the maximum amount of loss likely to occur. It is determined using
  Monte Carlo simulation that allows for incorporation of portfolio specific features such as diversification by
                                            region and industry sectors.

Credit Income (Revenue on Facility or Relationship)

 - Operating Costs (Per Performance Contracts)

 - Provisions for Loan Losses (Expected Loss)

 - Taxes (@33%)

Net Income

 - Capital Charge (Ke * Economic Capital)

Economic Profit (EP)

RAROC = Net Income / Economic Capital

                                           In-Country Capital Allocation Committees

Guiding Principals:
   Total capital pot allocated per Region via a Steering Committee
   Capital reallocation per region effected by way of GCMC recommendation
   Capital pots per country allocated by Regional Capital Allocation Committee (CAC)
   Capital deployed via scheduled Regional and In-Country CAC’s
   No incremental capital to be allocated to client relationships generating revenue =< EUR 25 thd / exceptions
    considered case-by-case / new relationships must generate EUR 25 thd in year one.
   Defined decision rights for Regional and In-Country CACs
   Risk Weight Assets to be managed globally across all business units by Portfolio Strategy & Execution
   Where capital relates to a sector in breach of global portfolio parameter a special allocation approval is required
   Dedicated resources, like compliance & risk & portfolio management officers, will be put in place to manage the
    capital allocation process in conjuction with the business areas;
