Definition Va. R is defined as the predicted worst-case loss at a specific confidence level (e. g. 99%) over a certain period of time. Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 7

Va. R 1% Profit/Loss Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 8

Meaning of Va. R A portfolio manager has a daily Va. R equal $1 M at 99% confidence level. This means that there is only one chance in 100 that a daily loss bigger than $1 M occurs, under normal market conditions. Va. R 1% Zvi Wiener 9

Why Capital Requirements • Government Protection • Debt financing • In Israel this is not binding! • But it will be!! • Traded assets constitute a small portion • 339 -9, 339 -10 defines who must use Va. R Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 15

Unifying Approach • One number • Based on Statistics • Portfolio Theory • Verification • Widely Accepted • Easy Comparison Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 16

Capital Requirements Minimal required capital Supervision factor, 3 k 4 Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 17

Qualitative Requirements • An independent risk management unit • Board of directors involvement • Internal model as an integral part • Internal controller and risk model • Backtesting • Stress test Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 18

Quantitative Requirements • 99% confidence interval • 10 business days horizon • At least one year of historic data • Data base revised at least every quarter • All types of risk exposure • Derivatives Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 19

Types of Assets and Risks • Real projects - cashflow versus financing • Fixed Income • Optionality • Credit exposure • Legal, operational, authorities Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 20

Risk Factors There are many bonds, stocks and currencies. The idea is to choose a small set of relevant economic factors and to map everything on these factors. • Exchange rates • Interest rates (for each maturity and indexation) • Spreads • Stock indices Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 21

How to measure Va. R • Historical Simulations • Variance-Covariance • Monte Carlo • Analytical Methods • Parametric versus non-parametric approaches Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 22

Historical Simulations • Fix current portfolio. • Pretend that market changes are similar to those observed in the past. • Calculate P&L (profit-loss). • Find the lowest quantile. Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 23

Example Assume we have $1 and our main currency is SHEKEL. Today $1=4. 30. Historical data: P&L 4. 00 4. 20 4. 30*4. 20/4. 00 = 4. 515 0. 215 4. 20 4. 30*4. 20/4. 20 = 4. 30 0 4. 10 4. 30*4. 10/4. 20 = 4. 198 -0. 112 4. 15 4. 30*4. 15/4. 10 = 4. 352 0. 052 Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 24

Variance Covariance • Means and covariances of market factors • Mean and standard deviation of the portfolio • Delta or Delta-Gamma approximation • Va. R 1%= P – 2. 33 P • Based on the normality assumption! Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 29

Monte Carlo Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 31

Monte Carlo • Distribution of market factors • Simulation of a large number of events • P&L for each scenario • Order the results • Va. R = lowest quantile Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 32

Monte Carlo Simulation Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 33

Weights Since old observations can be less relevant, there is a technique that assigns decreasing weights to older observations. Typically the decrease is exponential. See Risk. Metrics Technical Document for details. Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 34

Stock Portfolio • Single risk factor or multiple factors • Degree of diversification • Tracking error • Rare events Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 35

How Va. R is used • Internal Risk Management • Reporting • Regulators Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 40

Backtesting Verification of Risk Management models. Comparison if the model’s forecast Va. R with the actual outcome - P&L. Exception occurs when actual loss exceeds Va. R. After exception - explanation and action. Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 41

Backtesting Green zone - up to 4 exceptions OK Yellow zone - 5 -9 exceptions increasing k Red zone - 10 exceptions or more intervention Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 42

Stress Designed to estimate potential losses in abnormal markets. Extreme events Fat tails Central questions: How much we can lose in a certain scenario? What event could cause a big loss? Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 43

Real Projects Most daily returns are invisible. Proper financing should be based on risk exposure of each specific project. Note that accounting standards not always reflect financial risk properly. Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 52

Example • You are going to invest in Japan. • Take a loan in Yen. • Financial statements will reflect your investment according to the exchange rate at the day of investment and your liability will be linked to yen. • Actually there is no currency risk. Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 53

Airline company • fuel - oil prices and $ • purchasing airplanes - $ and Euro • salaries - NIS, some $ • tickets $ • marketing - different currencies • payments to airports for services Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 54

Airline company • loans • equity • callable bonds Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 55

Airline company Base currency - by major stockholder. Time horizon - by time of possible price change. Earnings at risk, not value at risk, since there is too much optionality in setting prices. One can create a one year cashflow forecast and measure its sensitivity to different market events. Zvi Wiener FRM 5 -Va. R 56
