Errors Found in Study Notes P2.T6. Credit Risk
Hello @The Great Khan This is because we were not able to completely update the focus review videos this year so some of the content that was removed from the curriculum may still be included in the videos. We feel that it is better to publish the previous videos rather than to not publish them at all because much of the content is still relevant for this year's exam. Thank you, Nicole

CVA Questions
I did not talk about hedging, i hope that is clear with my previous post. I think a cds on yourself issued by yourself is essentially worthless. It might theoretically be worth something if your LGD is greater than zero, but I doubt that this is an instrument that is used by anybody anywhere. My point with the buying back of bonds and derivatives is, that you can realize a profit from an...

Cash-funded vs. syntethic CDO (borrower consent/notification)
Hi All, I wanted to raise the following topic and share my insights about Cash-funded vs. syntethic CDO and whether one of these requires the borrower notification/obtaining borrower consent? This could be of one of these tricky questions in the exam (similarly engineered questions have turned up at the exam in Nov. 2016) David, it would be much appreciated if we can have your take on this?...

VaR question (Part 2 exam - members put other question you can recall)
I am stuck with this question too, I was thinking if 5% of loss on 25 loans (1% recovery rate) then that should be time 1.645 but the answer does not match!

GARP Part 2 Questions 76 and 33 (garp16-p2-76) (garp16-p2-33)
Just to add to the helpful comments already here: Question 76 is asking for the unconditional PD in year 4, which can be also answered by subtracting th 3-year cumulative PD from the 4-year cumulative PD: (1-5.5%)^4 - (1-5.5%)^3 = 4.64%.

Collateral can increase exposure?
I think Gregory is just illustrating an outlier possibility related to "the need to post collateral and parameters such as minimum transfer amounts create some risk above the threshold." The portfolio value -15 implies this party has posted collateral but the collateral amount is not continously accurate (per MTA and other parameters) such that $18 has actually been posted and $3 is due to be...

hazard rate (garp16-p2-33)
Hi @frmqiu Yes, the language in question 2016.P2.Q33 was reported earlier in the year as imprecise. I recall that GARP agreed with our feedback. @Deepak Chitnis is correct that the solution implicitly is the discrete conditional PD, but the phrasing suggests it wants a joint probability. Please see here for more detail

Merton drift in DD
Hi All, P2.T6.R43 I am trying to conceptually understand how the DD value is calculated statistically. The numerator is the expected value of the price, and the denominator is the standard deviation. My question relates to the numerator. Assume T-t=1 ln(Vo/K) is the current log "return" at T=0. We then add what I assume is the expected drift until maturity (r-(sig^2)/2). How am I supposed...

2016 GARP PQ - Question 52 -Netting
Hi @no_ming In this question, the type of instruments don't really matter as the question is giving you the mark-to-market value ("current market value"
of the positions. Credit exposure is max(value, 0). So the credit exposure here without netting is 54, but with netting it is only 21: Without netting: max(0, +21) + max(0, -33) + max(0, +33) = 54 With netting: max(0, 21 - 33 + 33) = 21

Considerations about commitment fee and EAD
Hi to all! If I understood correctly, banks apply a commitment fee (fixed percentage) on the undrawn portion of a credit line to hedge the further expected loss associated with that credit exposition. So you have to pay more if you are using a small drawn portion of the credit line. Now, given the fact that a firm with an high rating (such as AA or A) will only use a small part of the credit...

Credit Exposure
Hi @Stuti It's the same square root rule that let's us scale volatility/VaR per sqrt(ΔT) but therefore importantly it is conditional on the same i.i.d. assumption, namely that the returns of the credit risk factor are independent. Further, this is the simplest possible credit exposure profile; i.e., a single i.i.d. credit risk factor. For example, in a swap, sqrt(ΔT) tends to characterize...

CDS pricing question!
Hi @no_ming Yes, on one level, that's correct: the question implies an increase in price and, if we naively assume that the price determines the collateral posted (as the question implies), then the price increase implies additional collateral is posted. As discussed, most of the price movement should be fundamental (i.e., changes in the reference's credit quality) but, as is always the case,...

Real world application: Deriving default probabilities from observed CDS spreads
Hi there, I have to solve a problem which is actually a real world application of Malz, Chapter 7 - Bootstrapping default probabilities given an observable CDS spread curve. Please refer to the excel attached: I have created an excel spreadsheet that should do the calculation. What it basically does is - given an observable CDS spread curve - modelling the cash flows of a hypothetical CDS...

Hi @taunk , Yes, typo on my end. You're right. Explanation became a little too wordy so I missed my own typo
. Thanks for correcting!

Marginal CVA
Hi @ami44 In regard to to Gregory's Table 12.6 above, I would just add: On the total line, there is only a summation of standalone CVAs (392,973) which is maybe not so useful except as as unrealistic, undiversified CVA (but diversification here, just exactly as @ami44 says, is a dynamic really due to the netting agreement in the netting set) versus the "actual" (i.e., diversified at the...

Delivery squeeze
Hi @ami44, Just adding a little more to the CDS-bond basis = CDS spread - Asset swap spread An asset swap exchanges the coupon of a corporate bond for LIBOR plus a spread. Reproducing an example from Hull: Let's take a situation where the asset swap spread on a particular bond = 150 bps. There are three likely scenarios: 1) Bond Price = Par value of $100. The swap involves Company A paying...

Thank you, so it is kind of sensitivity analysis rather than the actual mechanism which i was confused about.
