  3. A significant challenge for a CRO is to stay on top of a complex combination of factors which drive risk • The ability to efficiently integrate all the components of risk as well as to effectively operate in markets while serving customers as well as satisfying regulatory requirements is a direct function of the quality of the people, the associated culture, as well as incentives and experience Customers Investors People Culture Incentives Experience Market Risk Credit Risk Regulators Rating Agencies Equity Analysts Markets Operations Risk Black Diamond Risk Management

  4. METHODOLOGIES POLICIES INFRASTRUCTURE A significant challenge for a CRO is to build a proactive risk management function that can be benchmarked in terms of: Black Diamond Risk Management

  5. METHODOLOGIES POLICIES INFRASTRUCTURE For example, a proactive risk management function would include building a Credit Portfolio Management Group (CPMG) • The CPMG has become part of the landscape through which proactive risk management functions are actively managing their Credit Portfolio Proactive Risk Management Black Diamond Risk Management

  6. Policies • Ongoing Policy Assessment from a CRO’s perspective involves asking several critical questions. These include: • Is the tolerance for risk consistent with the Business Strategies? • Do the risk authorities reflect a desired tolerance for risk? • Is risk properly disclosed internally and externally? Business Strategies Risk Tolerance Appropriate Policies Independent First-Class Proactive Risk Management Authorities Disclosure Black Diamond Risk Management

  7. Strategy and Risk Tolerance • A Significant challenge for a CRO is to ensure that there is a formalized process to discuss and debate the tradeoffs amongst the various business units to opportunistically increase their risk. • The tolerance for risk is ideally tied to a well articulated and transparent business model.

  8. Example 1: August 1998: • Equity prices dropped sharply • Equity Volatility increased • Liquidity dried up (Flight to quality) • Correlations broke down • Credit spreads widened • Credit quality deteriorated August ‘98 WideCreditSpread HighVolatility LowLiquidity Black Diamond Risk Management

  9. A key challenge for CRO’s during Aug 1998 was to adjust the tolerance for risk in advance of extreme negative markets. For example: VaR July 22 Risk Authorities 58mm Oct 02 38mm 29mm Oct99 Nov 97 Mar98 Jul98 Aug98 Feb99 Jun99 Jul99 Aug99 Sep99 Oct98 Black Diamond Risk Management

  10. Risk Disclosure • A test of best practice risk management is an organization’s ability to provide disclosure which makes the risk transparent to managers. • Analytically rich disclosure is critical to a strong risk management process. • Risks and financial flows should be well understood by managers and other stakeholders.

Certain types of disclosure have now become standardExample 2: Daily Net Trading Revenue vs. Value at Risk ALCO Limit - Upper Boundary Daily Net Trading Revenue Potential Predicted Positive Revenue C$ Millions Potential Negative RevenuePredicted ALCO Limit - Lower Boundary August 27, 1998 Nov Dec Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Black Diamond Risk Management

  12. There are many significant methodological challenges for a CRO • Ongoing assessment of methodologies involves such questions as: • Is the design and implementation of VaR as well as stress testing methodologies appropriate? • Are the mathematical models properly vetted? • Are the positions properly valued? • Are the risk methodologies tied into performance measurement?

  14. Example 4: A credit risk challenge for a CRO is to appropriately characterize credit risk in the trading book and integrate it with credit risk in the banking book • Ex: Credit Limit exposure for derivatives is typically measured through using a single Worst Case (W) or 2/3 W exposure and then combine it with credit risk limits in the banking book against the same obligor Worst Case Terminal Exposure (WT) “ Worst Case” Credit Exposure path Cumulative Average Worst Case (FE = 2/3 WT) “Expected” Credit Expected Terminal Exposure If W set at a 2 sigma Exposure path = WT /5 Cumulative Average Expected Exposure (=2/3 x WT /5) Best Case (0) Time (T) 0 T Black Diamond Risk Management

For example, the credit risk for a Credit Derivative can be modeled as a put (utilizing a Merton Style “structural form” model) • where P is the current value of the put, N(.) is the cumulative standard normal distribution, and • and  is the standard deviation of the rate of return of the firm’s assets.

Liquidity is a key element that is difficult to incorporate • Yield to maturity and credit spreads can be calculated according to well known technology: Black Diamond Risk Management

  18. CROs have benefited from significant progress made in measuring market & credit risk and are now attacking Operational Risk…. but have not yet found a generally accepted Unified Risk Measure The market has reliable risk measures for individual portfolios, but no highly reliable measure for total risk across the trading book and banking book .

  19. Valuation and Performance • The implementation of best practice calls for methodologies that accurately value transactions and quantifies the return to risk relationships of the individual as well as portfolio of transactions.
