The Denominator: Capital at Risk
• Market-based approach (BT model)
– Measure the maximum adverse change in the
market value of the loan resulting from an
– Use duration model to measure price effects.
• Experientially-based approach (BA model)
– Calculate UL using a multiple x LGD x
exposure x standard deviation of default rates.

The Market-based Approach to
Measuring Capital at Risk
L = -DL x L x R/(1+RL) (13.9)

## (Dollar capital risk (Duration (Risk amount or (Expected discounted change in

the
exposure or loss of the loan loan exposure) credit premuim or risk factor on
the
amount) loan)

L = -\$ 27,000

The Experientially-based Approach to
Capital at Risk Measurement
• If 99.97% VAR (AA rating) and normal
distribution, then the multiplier is 3.4.
• But, most banks use a large multiplier
because loan distributions are not normal.
• BA uses multiplier = 6.
• If LGD=.5, Exposure=\$1m, Loan
=.00225, then UL=6 x .00225 x .5 x \$1m
= \$27,000 (same as market-based approach)
Saunders & Allen Chapter 13 7
Calculating the RAROC of the
Loan Example
• Spread = .2% x \$1m = \$2,000
• Fees = .15% x \$1m = \$1,500
• EL = .1% x \$.5m = (\$500)
• Tax rate = 0%
• RAROC = \$3,000/\$27,000 = 11.1%
• If cost of capital < 11.1% then make loan.

The RAROC Denominator and Correlations

## Ri – RF = i (Rm - RF) (13.15)

where Ri = the return on a risky asset,
RF = the risk-free rate,
Rm = the return on the market portfolio,
i = the risk of the risky asset,
and
i = im/2m = imim/2m = imi/m (13.16)
where im = covariance between the returns on risky asset i and the market portfolio m,
m = standard deviation of the return on the market portfolio,
im = correlation between the returns on the risky asset i and
the market
portfolio

Ri - RF = Rm - RF

RAROC = Hurdle Rate (13.18)

Incorporating Unsystematic Risk
• Equation (13.18) is the traditional Sharpe ratio for a loan. But, if all
idiosyncratic risk is diversified away, then no need for RAROC.
RAROC deals with untraded and unhedgeable assets (loans).
• Banks specialize in info-intensive relationship lending that cannot be
hedged in capital markets. Risk of loan should be divided into: (1)
liquid, hedgeable market risk component and (2) illiquid, unhedgeable
component.
• The correlation of the unhedgeable component with the bank’s
portfolio will determine the loan’s price. So different banks (with
different portfolio correlations) will have different pricing (credit risk).
