Scrutiny has increased and changed
Scrutiny has increased and changed

  • Training

  • Minimum acceptable credit quality

  • Investment Regulations require assessment of treasury risks

  • Benchmarking – risk(s) versus return

  • Scrutiny of strategy and activity – increased frequency

  • Wider range of instruments

What we consider
What we consider

with a critical subjective overlay

What are we concerned about
What are we concerned about?

  • A loosening of criteria to accommodate process driven solutions -

  • “..... not rely solely on the current credit ratings of counterparties but also includes the following overlays:

  • Credit watches and credit outlooks from credit rating agencies

  • Credit Default Swaps spreads to give early warning of likely changes in credit ratings

  • Sovereign ratings to select counterparties from only the most creditworthy countries”

  • Rejection of lowest common denominator approach to ratings in order to “not give undue preponderance to just one agency’s ratings.”But what if that agency’s view is right?

  • An emerging CIPFA led focus on investment concentration.

Overnight interest rate swap ois sonia
Overnight Interest Rate Swap (OIS) & SONIA

  • OIS = Overnight Interest Swap

  • A transaction between banks on a NOTIONAL sum, not the physical.

  • Settlement at the end of the Swap is for marginal difference around a given interest rate, not full interest.

  • Marginal credit risk.

  • SONIA – Sterling Overnight Interest Average

  • An index of the average overnight rate that is used as the reference rate for OIS.
