Structural Features of Callable Debt

Maturity Date

The latest and final possible date at which the security will be retired and principal will be redeemed at par.

Lockout Period

The amount of time for which a callable security cannot be called. For example, with a 3 noncall 1-year (“3nc1”) debt security, the security cannot be called for the first year. During this time, only coupon payments are made

Type of Call Feature

The type of call options embedded in a callable security

  • Fannie Mae issues callable debt instruments
  • with a variety of maturity dates along the yield
  • curve.
  • Fannie Mae issues callable debt with lockout
  • periods of three months to as long as 10 years.
  • Fannie Mae callable debt issues incorporate one
  • of the following call features (after the lockout
  • date):
  • American-style (continuous);
  • European-style (one-time);
  • Bermudan-style (only on a predetermined schedule of dates);
  • Canary-style (on a predetermined schedule of dates until designated called period ends).

slide12

How do we value and price callable debt?From our perspective, a five year maturity where we have the ability to call the note in one year with four years remaining.Hence, valuation components are two fold: * Our bullet cost of funds, one to five years. * Cost of the option that allows us to call a four year bond, one year forward. This is where it gets more complicated……

slide13

Bullet and callable spreads for 5 Y bullet and new issue 5nc1Y 1X callable note

Callable spreads are driven by those two factors, 5 Y bullet spreads and the value of the call option.

slide14

No market for options on Agency rates…..we utilize option pricing on swap rates as the two markets are highly correlated

slide15

Option terminology….Black (Yield) vol: Market quoted implied volatility used to translate volatility to priceNormal (BP) vol: Yield volatility multiplied by the forward rate. A measure that “normalizes” yield volatility with level of rates.

5nc1 Y Example….Forward Rate…. As implied by current yield curve. Volatility quote is based on the strike set at the forward.Implied volatility sets the expected range of future rates. The higher the volatility assumption, the wider the expected range.

slide16

The Call Spread is dictated by the volatility assumption that is used to value the embedded option.

slide17

Calculating the par priced, callable bond coupon is an iterative process. The coupon (strike) where the value of the high coupon bullet is offset by the value of the option.

The relationship of the callable coupon to the forward rate (“Moneyness”) is driven by shape of the curve.

“Moneyness” can dictate the overall risk profile of the callable note….duration measure.

“Moneyness” can dictate the overall risk profile of the callable note….convexity measure.

slide21

Bermudan pricing is the same process, the only difference is the use of a volatility surface instead of a single volatility assumption.

The Bermudan volatility for a 5nc1Y is 32.1% compared to 36.4% for the 1X callable. However, the Bermudan coupon is still 6 BPs higher than the 1X bond.

slide22

Different sectors of the volatility surface reflect the market’s view on future rates and monetary policy.

slide23

Implied volatility levels fluctuate with rate levels though the relationship has reversed since 2009.

slide24

The volatility on strikes that are not ATM can vary. Below is 1x4 normal volatility with strikes +/- 200 bps.

The difference between the ATM volatility and the one used for varying strikes is referred to as “skew”. Right now, high (low) strikes trade at a higher (lower) implied volatility compared to the ATM. AOAS is set to normal volatility.
