Presentation Transcript
  • Interest Rates are determined by supply and demand, are moving all the time, and can be difficult to forecast.
  • The yield curve is generally upward sloping
  • Interest Rate Risk: The uncertainty surrounding future interest rates.
    • Unforeseen parallel shifts in the yield curve
    • Unforeseen changes in the slope of the yield curve

Our Focus

where we are going
Where We are Going
  • Dollar Gap
    • Method to understand the impact of interest rate risk on bank profits
    • Simple, and requires some ad-hoc assumptions
    • Not discussed in Bodie-Kane-Marcus
  • Duration
    • Method to understand the impact of interest rate risk on the value of bank shareholder equity
    • More elegant and mathematically intense
    • The focus of the reading in Bodie-Kane-Marcus
    • Used extensively as well by bond traders
interest rate risk
Interest Rate Risk
  • Banks assets
    • Generally long-term, fixed rate
  • Bank liabilities
    • Generally short term, variable rate
  • Impact on profits:
    • Rates increase
      • Interest received stays fixed
      • Interest paid increases
      • Profits decrease
interest rate sensitive
Interest-Rate Sensitive
  • An asset or liability whose rate is reset within some “short period of time”

e.g. 0-30 days, 1-year, etc.

  • Interest rate sensitive assets:
      • Short-term bond rolled over into other short-term bonds
      • Variable rate loans
  • Interest rate sensitive liabilities:
      • Short-term deposits
interest rate risk example
Interest-Rate Risk Example
  • Assets: 50 billion
    • 5B IRS; rate = 8% per year
  • Liabilities: 40 billion
    • 24B IRS; rate = 5% per year
  • Profits ($billion)
    • 50(.08)-40*(.05) = 2
parallel shift in yield curve
Parallel Shift in Yield Curve
  • Suppose all rates increase by 1%
  • Assets
    • IRS (5B): rate = 9%
    • Not IRS (45B): rate = 8%
  • Liabilities
    • IRS (24B): rate = 6%
    • Not IRS (16B): rate = 5%
profits after rate increase
Profits After Rate Increase
  • Interest Expenses ($billion)
    • 16(.05)+24(.06)=2.24
  • Interest revenues ($billion)
    • 5*(.09)+45*(.08)=4.05
  • Profits
    • Before: 2 billion
    • After:4.05-2.24=1.81 billion
    • Decrease: 0.19 billion or 9.5% drop in profits


gap analysis
Gap Analysis
  • Gap = IRSA – IRSL
  • IRSA = dollar value of interest rate sensitive assets
  • IRSL = dollar value of interest rate sensitive liabilities
  • From Previous Example
    • IRSA (millions) = 5
    • IRSL (millions) = 24
  • Dollar Gap (millions): 5 – 24 = -19
  • Change in profits= Dollar Gap´Di
  • From previous example:
    • Change in profits (millions)

-19 ´.01 = -0.19

gap analysis1
Gap Analysis
  • If the horizon is long enough, virtually all assets are IRS
  • If the horizon is short enough, virtually all assets become non-IRS
  • No standard horizon

what is the right gap
What is the right GAP?
  • One of the most difficult questions bank managers face
  • Defensive Management
    • Reduce volatility of net interest income
    • Make Gap as close to zero as possible
  • Aggressive Management
    • Forecast future interest rate movements
    • If forecast is positive, make Gap positive
    • If forecast is negative, make Gap negative
problems with gap
Problems with Gap
  • Time horizon to determine IRS is ambiguous
  • Ignores differences in rate sensitivity due to time horizon
  • Focus on profits rather than shareholder wealth
building a bank
Building a Bank
  • Suppose you are in the process of creating a bank portfolio.
  • Shareholder equity: $25 million
  • You’ve raised $75M in deposits (liabilities)
  • You’ve purchased $100M in 30-yr annual coupon bonds (assets)
bank equity and interest rates

30-yr bonds

FV: $100M

Coupon rate: 1.8%





Paying 1% per year

Bank Equity and Interest Rates

Annual profits: $1.8M - $0.75M = $1.05M

Rate on bonds is fixed – no matter how rates change.

Rate on deposits resets every year.

gap analysis2
Gap Analysis
  • IRSA – IRSL = 0 – 75M = -75M
  • Assume rates increase by 10 basis points
  • We must now pay 1.1% on deposits
  • Change in profits: -75M(.001) = -75,000
    • Profits down 7% = 75K/1.05M
gap analysis3
Gap Analysis
  • One Solution: To protect profits from interest rate increases, sell your holdings in the long term bonds and buy shorter term bonds
  • But since yield curve is usually upward sloping (liquidity risk-premiums), shorter term bonds will usually earn lower yields.
  • Result: Lower profits
manager s objective
Manager’s Objective
  • Managers should probably not be concerned about protecting profits.
  • Instead, should be concerned about protecting value of shareholder equity: the value shareholders would get if they sold their shares.
market value of bank assets
Market Value of Bank Assets
  • Before Rates Increase: Assets =$100M
  • After rate increase?
    • Bank is earning 1.8% on 30-yr bonds
    • Other similar 30-year bonds are paying a YTM of 1.9%
    • Market value of bank assets:
      • N=30, YTM=1.9%, PMT=1.8M, FV=100M
      • Value = $97.73M
market value of bank liabilities
Market Value of Bank Liabilities
  • Liability of $75.75M due in one year
    • Principal and interest
    • Depositors will “redeposit” principal with you at new rate in 1-year
  • Market Value of liabilities = amount I would have to put away now at current rates to pay off liability in one year = present value
  • Before rates increase: 75.75/1.01=$75M
  • After rates increase: 75.75/1.011=$74.93M
market value of equity
Market Value of Equity
  • PV(assets) – PV(liabilities)
  • One way to think of it:
    • Assume 1 individual were to purchase the bank
    • After purchasing the bank she plans to liquidate
    • When she sells assets, she will get PV(assets)
    • But of these assets, she will have to set aside some cash to pay off liabilities due in 1 year, PV(liabilities)
market value of equity1
Market Value of Equity
  • One way to think of it (continued)
    • When considering a purchase price, she shouldn’t pay more than PV(assets)-PV(liabilities)
    • But current shareholders also have the option to liquidate rather than sell the bank
    • Current shareholders shouldn’t take anything less than PV(assets) - PV(liabilities)
interest rates and bank equity
Interest Rates and Bank Equity
  • Before rates increase: equity=$25M
  • After rates increase: 97.73-74.93=$22.8M
  • Change in equity: 22.8M-25M = -2.2M
  • A 10 basis point increase in rates leads to a drop in equity of 8.8% (22.8/25-1=-.088)
  • Sell long term bonds and buy short-term bonds
    • Problem: Many assets of banks are non-tradable loans (fixed term) – more on this later.
    • Some bank loans are tradeable: securitized mortgages
    • How much do we want to hold in long vs. short bonds?
  • Refuse to grant long-term fixed rate loans
    • Problem: No clients – no “loan generation fees”
    • Bank wants to act as loan broker
  • What should be our position in long versus short-term bonds?
  • How much interest rate risk do we want?
  • Longer term bonds earn higher yields, but the PVs of such bonds are very sensitive to interest rate changes.
  • We need a simple way to measure the sensitivity of PV to interest rate changes.
modified duration
Modified Duration
  • Duration: a measure of the sensitivity of PV to changes in interest rates: larger the duration, the more sensitive
  • Bank managers choose bank portfolio to target the duration of bank equity.
duration and change in pv
Duration and Change in PV
  • Let DPV = “change in present value”
  • The change in PV for any asset or liability is approximately
  • From before:
    • Original PV of 30-year bonds: $100M
    • When YTM increased 10 bp, PV dropped to 97.73
    • DPV=97.73M -100M = -2.27M
  • Duration Approximation
  • From before:
    • Original PV of liabilities: $75M
    • When rate increased 10 bp, PV dropped to 74.93M
    • DPV=74.93M -75M = -0.074M
  • Duration Approximation
  • Change in bank equity using duration approximation:
  • Before, the change in equity was -2.20.
modified duration1
Modified Duration
  • Modified Duration is defined as

where “D” is called “Macaulay’s Duration”

macaulay s duration
Macaulay’s Duration
  • Let t be the time each cash flow is received (paid)
  • Then duration is simply a weighted sum of t
  • The weights are defined as
  • Annual coupon paying bond
    • matures in 2 years, par=1000,
    • coupon rate =10%, YTM=10%
  • Price=$1000
  • Time when cash is received:
    • t1=1 ($100 is received), t2=2 ($1100 is received)
