`The current risk weighing of assets results, at best,
in   a   crude   measure   of   economic    risk,   primarily
because degrees of credit risk exposure are not
sufficiently calibrated as to adequately differentiate
between borrowers’ differing default risk.’

       Risk weighting based on risk weighting of sovereign in which the bank is incorporated
       Risk weighting based on the assessment of the individual bank
       Claims on banks of a short original maturity, e.g., less than six months, would receive a
       weighting that is one category more favorable than the usual risk weight on the
       bank’s claim
Why risk based pricing ?

l C r e d i t m a r k e t s a n d m a r k e t- d e t e r m i n e d p r i c i n g o f
   credit assets is a relatively recent in India
l Steep learning curve for market participants
l M i s- p r i c i n g m a y r e s u l t i n
     l adverse selection
     l earnings volatility for the financial institution
     l threaten economic viability of the bank/FI
     l impact the credit rating of the bank/FI
Why risk based pricing?

l Pricing: a tool to determine
   l proactive provisioning (as opposed to
     regulatory provisioning)
   l optimal allocation of capital
l How to earn adequate return on capital?
l Risk based economic capital allocation
l Input for the credit portfolio model
l Building block for RAROC
l Aids strategic planning
 • Necessary for value creation and preservation
 • Aligns the incentives of the business executives
    with the riskiness of their business
Credit exposure determination

l Measure all credit exposures in the bank’s
  various books (loan book, investment book,
  trading books)
l For derivatives positions, model the potential
  peak exposure, and express it as a Loan
  Equivalent Exposure
l Aggregate the exposures

  Need good systems that allows data capture
  and update of exposures at frequent intervals

   d i s t r i b u t i o n , f a t -t a i l e d d i s t r i b u t i o n
l Hurdle rate depends on the targeted return on
   capital set by the management
Risk based pricing: Implementation

l Lack of data on default rates and recovery rates
  of various rating categories
l Lack of quick remedies under judicial system
  leads to absence of trading in defaulted debt
Motivating Portfolio Management
l Changing Economics of Traditional Products
    l L e s s d e m a n d d u e t o d i s -intermediation
    l More supply due to capital mobility
    l Lower returns and increased importance of risk

l   New business opportunities, different
  l Syndicated lending
  l Project / structured finance
  l Leveraged finance
l New opportunities to manage portfolio, e.g.
  l Securitization
  l Credit derivatives
  l Secondary loan trading
Strategic Questions

 In addition to transaction underwriting skills,
 management focus on two strategic questions

  l Given the new business opportunities, what is
    the optimum business mix needed to reach the
    organisation’s objectives

  l Given the relative increased importance of risk,
    what is the optimum portfolio composition
Improvement Potential

l O p t i m i s e b a l a n c e- s h e e t s t r u c t u r e
     l using actuarial methods based reserving policy
     l fully leveraging aggregate risk capital within
       regulatory constraints
l Optimize business mix by
     l measuring (risk adjusted) performance
     l allocating risk capital between business units
     l managing concentrations
l Improve tactical, risk-adjusted pricing of credit
Questions for Consideration

l What is the risk of a given portfolio?
   l What are its expected losses?
   l How much risk capital is needed?

l What is the impact of changing the portfolio mix?
   l What is the marginal and absolute risk contribution
     of a new position?
   l What diversification benefits comes from changing
     mix? Industry mix?

l What factors, if any, affect the portfolio’s risk
