16 Theory Broadly defining the credit culture Broadly laying out the external-internal environment Lookups Statutory issues & Regulatory Market, present environment Studies Industry, survey etc Setting up Risk Appetite Fixation of internal norms & prudential ceilings Deciding on risk rating Implementation Laying out procedures, appraisal standards, schematic issues July 5, 201016RBI CAB Pune

17 Credit Culture This is the way we handle credit Establish Business Priorities Choose Credit CultureStrategies July 5, 201017RBI CAB Pune Credit Policy determines the credit culture

18 July 5, 2010RBI CAB Pune18

19 Based on Corporate priorities Based on Corporate priorities Credit Culture could be one of four types Credit Culture could be one of four types CORPORATE PRIORITY CULTURE Emphasis on asset quality, long term growth Values Driven (Conservative, Prudent) Short term gains Earnings Driven (Regardless of risk) Market share, Size Volume Driven /Aggressive No clear priorities Unfocussed July 5, 201019RBI CAB Pune

20 A Delicate Balancing Act Overriding objective of credit policy Healthy Balance between Credit Volumes, Earnings & Asset Quality Within the framework of Regulatory prescriptions, Corporate goals - social responsibilities July 5, 201020RBI CAB Pune

21 Credit expansion Steady expansion, sustained, continuous & prudent growth Steady rise in profits but emphasis on Quality Assets Profitable Relationships Statutory and Regulatory line This philosophy seeks to instill a value driven credit culture July 5, 201021RBI CAB Pune

23 RBIs Guidelines on Risk Management Systems in Banks require a typical Credit Policy to cover: Standards of presentation of credit proposals, financial covenants Rating standards and benchmarks Prudential limits on large credits and asset concentrations Standards for Loan collateral, Loan Review Mechanism Pricing of loans, risk monitoring and evaluation Legal and regulatory compliances Delegation of credit sanctioning powers Prohibition on lending July 5, 201023RBI CAB Pune

24 No ambiguity in postulations- chance for different understanding interpretations Loan policy must clearly mark the boundaries Government RBI Bank Loan policy should ideally list out restrictions that credit grantors can refer Loan policy must provide for exceptions- list out if possible Loan policy must also lay down the levels of authority for certain credit decisions Regulatory reviews, inspections also provide opportunities for aligning loan policy to regulatory thinking July 5, 201024RBI CAB Pune

25 Sector specific guidelines should also contain Dos and Donts based on present environment, statutory and regulatory guidelines e.g. Financing Real Estate, Capital Markets, bill discounting, NBFC lending etc Ban on lending to units producing ozone depleting substances is an instance of statutory restriction While assessing the adequacy of a loan policy these Dos and Donts should be weighed by the credit grantor Deterrents to non compliance to these dos and donts July 5, 201025RBI CAB Pune

26 July 5, 201026RBI CAB Pune

27 Target markets, industry and business sectors are identified Sectoral study Trends in consumption, impact on a sector Growth potential, capital investment, Delinquencies Conclusions Translating experiences into policy Industry Study Products, Capital investment, Sunrise/sunset Turnover, Labour, locational concentration Market, fashion trends etc Seasonality Regulatory environment July 5, 201027RBI CAB Pune

28 July 5, 201028RBI CAB Pune

29 Policy not to stop with managing transaction risks Has to address intrinsic risk also Portfolio perspective The risk inherent in certain lines of business is known through industry analysis Industry analysis to look at three vital factors Historic elements Predictive elements Lending elements July 5, 201029 RBI CAB Pune

30 Historic Risk Elements should look at: Financials: capital, cash flows, w.c. cycle Stability: demand, growth Longevity of the industry: demand, trend need etc Predictive Risk Elements would include: Structure: constitution Diversity: concentration Entry barriers- political, financial, feasibility Product Life cycle- ever in demand, seasonal etc Economic Vulnerability, Political / Regulatory risks, Environmental issues and Covariance factors July 5, 201030 RBI CAB Pune

31 Lending elements Collaterals-availability, acceptability Security- legal issues, Valuation – Delivery – Loan or an advance Industry study should be periodically reviewed and factored into the policy July 5, 201031RBI CAB Pune

32 In real life policy setting industry analysis may or may not be documented on these rigorous lines In any case a careful consideration of all three risk elements go into the industry limits fixed by each bank This is based on the lending experience and business expectations that the bank has It is intrinsic risks in sectors like real estate and capital markets that explains the regulatory concern about build up of asset concentrations in these areas Inspection and Audit to help verification/validation whether the intrinsic risk in industries with higher exposure limits have been assessed by the bank July 5, 201032RBI CAB Pune

33 Identify focus areas broad confines of strategy, study, restrictions etc. Identify macro economic trends, regulatory stance banks own experience core competencies Retail for instance became a focus area for banks after the interest rate deregulation and the slow down in corporate borrowings SMEs, Agriculture and Micro Finance are today perceived to be major business opportunities July 5, 201033 RBI CAB Pune

34 Each bank has its strong points and core competencies Public sector banks have a strong rural and semi urban presence and a history of success in agricultural and rural credit Banks in Western India have a predominant presence in sugar sector Credit Policy to draw on such strengths It should also leverage on sector specific regulatory incentives and relaxations extended from time to time July 5, 201034 RBI CAB Pune

35 July 5, 201035RBI CAB Pune

36 Prudential limits limiting magnitude of credit risk Dispersion of credit risk- prevents concentration Determinants- Credit culture Risk appetite Regulatory dictates Prevailing Industry and Economic Conditions Loan policy should articulate the rationale behind the limits, for better appreciation and understanding July 5, 201036 RBI CAB Pune

37 Financial Limits Single & Group Substantial Exposure Maximum limit Aggregate limit Industry wise Sector specific Individual Corporate Partnership Proprietorship Aggregate linked to capital funds July 5, 201037 RBI CAB Pune

38 Financial benchmarks with conditions under which deviations can be permitted Single and Group borrower limits not exceeding what is prescribed by RBI- permissible deviations Substantial Exposure limit (10% borrowers < 600% of capital) Industry and sector wise ceilings Limits on sensitive sectors subject to asset price volatility High risk and low priority sectors Maturity profile of the loan book July 5, 201038RBI CAB Pune

39 Limit setting is unique to each bank It has to balance risk control against growth imperatives The limits set should reflect the legacy issues in the portfolio There should be higher limits for areas where Bank has a natural advantage Lower limits and ban in sectors where the Banks prior experience has been adverse Limit setting is dynamic and on-going July 5, 201039 RBI CAB Pune

41 Tool for the measurement of credit risk To enable an informed and considered credit decision as good or bad To appropriately price loan products BCBS defines credit rating as summary indicator of risk inherent in individual credit signifying the risk of loss due to default of a counterparty by considering qualitative and quantitative information

42 Policy should provide for rating of all loan accounts- very little exceptions The rating should consist of 8-9 parameters (minimum) Policy to specify minimum entry rating i.e. Hurdle Rate Policy to lay down exceptions to Hurdle rate Policy to lay down procedures to handle accounts which fall below hurdle rating Annual review of ratings- Quarterly, half yearly updates Study of Rating migration Pricing linked to Rating Mapping of external ratings to internal ratings July 5, 2010RBI CAB Pune42

53 Knowledge is the most potent of risk mitigant Does the policy provide for dissemination of knowledge on credit? Is the policy in itself, - Comprehensive, Articulate, accurate and User friendly? July 5, 201053RBI CAB Pune
