    Funded vs Un-Funded

    Hi @WhizzKidd To which chapter are you referring, sorry? (it's one of Gregory's obviously....). I think of "funding costs" as the cost of cash or the borrowing cost of cash. This can be explicit or implicit (opportunity cost of cash invested elsewhere). If you purchase a bond, you need to pay for it, or borrow cash to pay for it. Or, if you want to purchase a commodity, you need to fund the...

    GARP.FRM.PQ.P2 2016 GARP PQ - Question 5 - CDS (garp16-p2-5)

    @bpdulog Sure thing! Although I've revised all of Hull P1, I haven't gotten to the Hull P2 XLS revisions yet. I agree about the (lack of) a pricing change. I tested at several different maturities and I wish I had more time to explore the exact reason why there is basically no change. My expectation actually (was) to see an inflation trend; e.g., extending adds a cost, sort of like a term...

    CVA

    Hi @FrmL2_Aspirant If lambda, λ, is the hazard rate then 1 - exp(-λ*T) is the cumulative default probability and the difference between the 1- and 2-year cumulative PDs, [1 - exp(-2*T)] - [1 - exp(-1*T)], is the unconditional default probability during the second year (as seen from today).

    Credit Exposure Profiles

    Hi @WhizzKidd I think you mean Gregory Chapter 8? (Oh, I notice it is also CR-13 in the FRM syllabus). Both of your examples (IRS and CDS) have in common that we presume their initial value is zero to both counterparties (why would either buyer/seller enter into the derivative contract if it had negative PV?). So, if you enter a contract with zero PV and, in the early years, you are paying...

    Merton Value of Equity Formula

    Hi @bpdulog Above the formula in the text is "Pt(T) the price at t of a zero-coupon bond that pays $1 at T." So we followed Stulz here with P(T) = F*exp(-rT); i.e., the face value of the debt discounted to the present value as a risk-free price. More broadly, this formula is the essence of the first step in Merton (see my long note here for explication on both steps ): equity is treated as a...

    Hi @bpdulog Yes, it is true that "Aren't they [i.e., the counterparty in a cross currency swap who is paying the higher interest rate] just receiving back the initial currency exchange and doesn't the gain depend on what the FX rates are at the end of the transaction?" but there is always the premise that at initiation the swap is a fair deal with initial market value of zero to both...

    Credit Exposure

    Thanks Shakti. So when we say for Forward Rate Agreements the EE profile is increasing function of time( sqrt(t)) ..The underlying factors that influence final netted payment excluding the time value of money is a function of time. Because when we say EE profile ..we are talking on the term structure of PV of EE? Is my understanding correct on this Thanks in Advance Biju

    delaurentis - chapter 2 - recovery

    I think the key takeaway here is that, assuming this is a large bank with millions of transactions, you won't be able to figure out a specific positin's recovery rate because that data gets lost. The reason why, I think, is that if a bank has 1000s of exposures with a single client, then they will just take the average LGD for that client as opposed to calculating each individually

    Dividing CVA by Duration --> gives Credit Spread

    Hi David, In Malz material Example 7.7 - the material reads "We assume a flat swap curve for all maturities : with a continuously compounded spot rate of 4.5%" so the swap rate is assumed to be close to spot rate and hence it is 4.5% in the below equation : how do you easily spot whether this is spot rate or Swap rate..

    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."
