Thanks for your reply, however, Schweser book says: The standardized approach to estimating securitization exposures treats assets rated Baa3 or better similar to other credit riks. Riskier assets have higher risk weights applied, and if an asset has no external rating, then there is...
If a bank retains the equity tranche of a securitization where the notional of the tranche is $10 mio and the tranche has a long term B- credit rating, what is the capital charge under the SA for securitization exposures?
c- $1.2 mio
d- $10 mio
I respond to your above question: for 96% confidence level, we are in the "no default" zone, as such Var is zero and ES is also zero.
We have a loss when the confidence level is 98% up to 99.9% because the bond will default by then, incurring a loss....am I right?
A bond with a face value of $10.0 million has a one-year probability of default (PD) of 1.0% and an expected recovery rate of 35.0%. What is the bond's one-year 99.0% expected shortfall (ES; aka, CVaR)?
a. $3.25 million
b. $6.5 million
c. $9.1 million
d. Not enough information: need...
I am aware of the formula but I can understand that when we "principal map", we assume a zero coupon bond with the average of maturity, right? Also, can you please elaborate about the following formula: The Returns (%) VaR = 1% yield volatility * 1.645 deviate * 2.885 mod...
Assume a flat yield curve with spot rate of 4.0% at all maturities and normally distributed yield volatility of 1.0%. We are mapping a two-bond portfolio. Both bonds have a $100 million face value and pay an ANNUAL 4% coupon. One bond has a one year maturity; the other has a five...
Hope you are well.
Can you please explain below comment:
"a counterparty may also request to receive cash from options positions that are in-the-money by having them revised to at-the-money".
How are you?
Would you please elaborate more the notion of capital charge. I came across different definitions such as "the cost to a company of borrowing money", "a monetary amount, calculated by multiplying the money the business has tied up in capital, by the weighted average cost...

It says that undiversified VaR is the sum of all VaRs of the individual positions in the portfolio when none of those positions are short positions.
I couldn't understand the effect of "short positions" in the calculation of VaR...
Below is an example taken from Qbank. Can you please explain the outcome?
Assume a portfolio consists of two loans of $1,000 with a correlation between loans of 0. Also, assume the only two outcomes for...
Hope you are well.
When we talk about recovery rate, we refer to the creditors (liability side of the bank) and not the debtors (asset side of the bank).
I am a bit confused because I came accross an exemple where it mentions the recovery rate of the firm's traded bonds. This...
