Netting agreements and the credit exposures of OTC derivatives portfolios

The rapid expansion of the over-the-counter derivative market has prompted dealers to lessen their credit risk exposure by adopting bilateral closeout netting agreements. This article shows that netting agreements will not only reduce current credit exposure but under certain circumstances will also dampen fluctuations in the volatility of dealers' exposures. Thus, netting agreements may limit potential credit exposure, or the possibility that credit exposure will increase over a fixed time horizon.

The price risk of options positions: measurement and capital requirements

This article evaluates supervisory approaches to the measurement and capital treatment of the price risk of options positions. The authors find that approximate value-at-risk rules tend to provide better estimates of potential losses than simple strategy-based rules. The value-at-risk rules are particularly effective when they adjust for nonlinear changes in options prices. The authors also consider the reporting burdens posed by the different approaches and the consistency of the rules with existing and proposed supervisory frameworks.

We find that, for contracts affected by restrictions, the change in market activity following restrictions differs between contracts. More important, the effect of a restriction varies among dual traders in the same market. For example, dual traders who ceased trading the S&P 500 index futures ...

Bank capital requirements for market risk: the internal models approach

The increases prominence of trading activities at many large banking companies has highlighted bank exposure to market risk-the risk of loss from adverse movements in financial market rates and prices. In response, bank supervisors in the United States and abroad have developed a new set of capital requirements to ensure that banks have adequate capital resources to address market risk. This paper offers an overview of the new requirements, giving particular attention to their most innovative feature: a capital charge calculated for each bank using the output of that bank's internal risk ...
