...scene where they took scene details. I drove the vehicle to Industrial Area Police Station That is all I can state. R.O.C NAME : GEORGE S. OGUTU DATE : 5/7/2012 TIME : 1.30 P.M. SIGNED : ___________________ CREDIT RISK Most financial institutions devote considerable resources to the measurement and management of credit risk. Regulators have for many years required banks to keep capital to reflect the credit risks they are bearing. This capital is in addition to the capital, described in Business Snapshot 20.1, that is required for market risk. Credit risk arises from the possibility that borrowers and counterparties in derivatives transactions may default. This chapter discusses a number of different approaches to estimating the probability that a company will default and explains the key difference between risk-neutral and real-world probabilities of default. It examines the nature of the credit risk in over-the-counter derivatives transactions and discuss the clauses of derivatives dealers write into their contracts to reduce credit risk. It also covers default correlation, Gaussian copula models, and the estimation of credit value at risk. Chapter 23 will discuss credit derivatives and show how ideas introduced in this chapter can be used to value these instruments.

...Commercial Banking The first category of credit risk models are the ones based on the original framework developed by Merton (1974) using the principles of option pricing (Black and Scholes, 1973). * the default process of a company is driven by the value of the company’s assets and the risk of a firm’s default is therefore explicitly linked to the variability of the firm’s asset value. * The basic intuition behind the Merton model is relatively simple: default occurs when the value of a firm’s assets (the market value of the firm) is lower than that of its liabilities. * The payment to the debt holders at the maturity of the debt is therefore the smaller of two quantities: the face value of the debt or the market value of the firm’s assets. * Assuming that the company’s debt is entirely represented by a zero-coupon bond, if the value of the firm at maturity is greater than the face value of the bond, then the bondholder gets back the face value of the bond. * However, if the value of the firm is less than the face value of the bond, the shareholders get nothing and the bondholder gets back the market value of the firm. The payoff at maturity to the bondholder is therefore equivalent to the face value of the bond minus a put option on the value of the firm, with a strike price equal to the face value of the bond and a maturity equal to the maturity of the bond. Following this basic intuition, Merton derived an explicit formula for risky bonds which......

Credit Risk

...Credit risk is the current and prospective risk to earnings or capital arising from an obligor’s failure to meet the terms of any contract with the Bank or otherwise to perform as agreed. Credit risk is found in all activities in which success depends on counterparty, issuer, or borrower performance. It arises any time bank funds are extended, committed, invested, or otherwise exposed through actual or implied contractual agreements, whether reflected on or off the balance sheet. Quantity of Credit Risk Indicators The quantity of credit risk is derived from the absolute amount of credit exposure and the quality of that exposure. How much credit exposure a bank has is a function of: • The level of loans and other credit/credit-equivalent exposures relative to total assets and capital and The extent to which earnings are dependent on loan or other credit/credit-equivalent income sources. • Banks that have higher loans-to-assets and loans-to-equity ratios and that depend heavily on the revenues from credit activities will have a higher quantity of credit risk. To determine the quantity of credit risk, the quantitative and qualitative risk indicators should be reviewed. These indictors can be rapid growth, high past-due levels, exceeds historical norms, or changes in trends or changes in portfolio mix. The following evaluation factors, as appropriate, should be used when assessing the quantity of credit risk. As assessment of low, moderate, or high......

And if not well managed, this kind of risk may drag a bank into great trouble or even bankruptcy, which can be proved by various bank failure cases. For banks, managing credit risk is not a simple task since comprehensive considerations and practices are needed for identifying, measuring, controlling and minimizing credit risk. In this dissertation, the credit risk management practices of major British banks are examined through the quantitative research on all Major British Banking Group members and qualitative analysis on the four sample banks....

Allow for input from staff and consider that input wisely and compare it to your written change plan. Often, a competitor’s idea of change that worked doesn’t mean it will work for you. Tools and techniques to help companies transform quickly. 1. Represent the “human side” systematically: Any significant transformation creates “people issues.” New leaders will be asked to step up, jobs will be changed, new skills and capabilities must be developed, and employees will be uncertain and resistant. Dealing with these issues on a reactive, case-by-case basis puts speed, morale, and results at risk. A formal approach for managing change — beginning with the leadership team and then engaging key stakeholders and leaders — should be developed early, and adapted often as change moves through the organization. This demands as much data collection and analysis, planning, and implementation discipline as does a redesign of strategy, systems, or processes. The change-management approach should be fully integrated into program design and decision making, both informing and enabling strategic direction. It should be based on a realistic assessment of the organization’s history, readiness, and capacity to change. 2. Begin with top: Because change is inherently unsettling for people at all levels of an organization,......

Another major source of credit risk could be concentration risk, which arises when a bank’s credit portfolio tend to be non-diversified i.e. large single borrower exposure or lending exposure to clients having similar economic factors (single sub-sector, industry, geographic region etc.) that would adversely impact the repayment ability of mass obligor during any possible economic downturn. To ensure the portfolio health, the bank has distributed the overall credit concentration among different segments/industry/trading.

...CREDIT RISK In the process of financial intermediation, the gap of which becomes thinner and thinner, banks are exposed to severe competition and hence are compelled to encounter various types of financial and non-financial risks. Risks and uncertainties form an integral part of banking which by nature entails taking risks. Business grows mainly by taking risk. Greater the risk, higher the profit and hence the business unit must strike a trade off between the two. The essential functions of risk management are to identify, measure and more importantly monitor the profile of the bank. While Non-Performing Assets are the legacy of the past in the present, Risk Management system is the pro-active action in the present for the future. Managing risk is nothing but managing the change before the risk manages. While new avenues for the bank has opened up they have brought with them new risks as well, which the banks will have to handle and overcome. When we use the term “Risk”, we all mean financial risk or uncertainty of financial loss. If we consider risk in terms of probability of occurrence frequently, we measure risk on a scale, with certainty of occurrence at one end and certainty of non-occurrence at the other end. Risk is the greatest where the probability of occurrence or non-occurrence is equal. As per the Reserve Bank of India guidelines issued in Oct. 1999, there are three major types of risks encountered by the banks and these are Credit Risk, Market Risk......
