2 Credit risk case study in a Chinese bank Credit risk case study in a Chinese bank Credit Risk Management Research Agenda

3 Credit risk case study in a Chinese bank Credit risk case study in a Chinese bank To explore the characteristics and causes of credit risk in Chinese commercial banks, analysis is made of 800 million RMB bad debts, which are written off between 1998 and 2005 in state-owned commercial banks in a Chinese city. To explore the characteristics and causes of credit risk in Chinese commercial banks, analysis is made of 800 million RMB bad debts, which are written off between 1998 and 2005 in state-owned commercial banks in a Chinese city. Given the specific financial background in China, studies are carried out in the field of the causes of credit risk which can be classified into 3 categories: Given the specific financial background in China, studies are carried out in the field of the causes of credit risk which can be classified into 3 categories:

5 Credit risk factor analysis

6 It is necessary to establish an all-dimensional evaluation system since the current system is focusing too much on financial indicators. The system should include the following 4 modules: It is necessary to establish an all-dimensional evaluation system since the current system is focusing too much on financial indicators. The system should include the following 4 modules: 1. Business performance evaluation: Based on the data provided by annual financial statements, the evaluation ratios are calculated which represent the repaying capacity, assets operation and development as well as financial performance of enterprises. By making good use of these ratios, we carry out comprehensive evaluation of enterprises. Thus financial analysis is improved and the development edge of enterprises are valued in quantified terms.

7 2. Individual industry risk: The current credit evaluation system does not take industry risk into consideration though in market economy, the rise and fall of an industry has a direct bearing on the prospects of enterprises within the industry and helps shape the development of enterprises in related industries. The rise and fall of an industry has increasingly become an important index of macro economy, acting as a significant guide for investment decision and credit allocation. As for Chinese market economy characterized by evident cyclical macro-control the economy waxes and wanes with not only market conditions but also government policies. The prospects of industries are neither deterministic nor predictable which has a direct impact on the safety of loans granted by banks.

8 3. Government risk evaluation government intervention is a major cause of bad loans in Chinese commercial banks because of which local government policies and actions should be made account of during the process of credit risk evaluation. Many a case indicate that local government intervenes strongly during the whole process of credit even in the dealing of bad loans. Making use of administrative power, governments clamp down on banks to grant credit to particular projects Making use of administrative power, governments clamp down on banks to grant credit to particular projects Governments appropriate credit and change the destination of it Governments appropriate credit and change the destination of it Governments transfer credit assets and avoid paying debts in the name of reorganization, merger and bankruptcy; Governments transfer credit assets and avoid paying debts in the name of reorganization, merger and bankruptcy; Governments establish varieties of barriers when banks dun for debts and deal with collateral legally. Governments establish varieties of barriers when banks dun for debts and deal with collateral legally. 4.Enterprise moral risk evaluation: evaluating creditability by examing enterprise s performance on carrying tax obligation, complying with contracts, presenting statements faithfully and paying debts on time.

10 Companies are exposed to significant levels of credit risk emanating from different sources Accounts Receivables Other Notes Receivables Buyer and Franchise Financing With Recourse Financing Project Finance Structured Transactions Leases with Recourse Derivatives Exposures FX, Interest Rate Risk, Commodities etc. Collateral Risk Parent or Third Party Guarantees Commercial and Standby Letters of Credit Note also that Critical Suppliers to the company may pose specific credit risk

11 Credit Risk Management Research Credit Risk Background An uncertain and volatile economic environment significantly impacts this ability An uncertain and volatile economic environment significantly impacts this ability The desire to grow and turn in outstanding results has a tendency to put pressure on the checks and balances within businesses The desire to grow and turn in outstanding results has a tendency to put pressure on the checks and balances within businesses Thorough identification and accurate measurement of credit risk, supported by strong risk management can help improve the bottom line Thorough identification and accurate measurement of credit risk, supported by strong risk management can help improve the bottom line

12 Each financial product has different credit risk characteristics - Creditors right ( loans, finance and option) - Credit (Swap, forward) Risk Exposure, Default Correlation and recovery rate differs from each other, especially in a portfolio. Default correlation is necessary to be considered. Default correlation and recovery rate may correlate with risk exposure as well. Assess the complexity of credit risk

13 Credit Policies & Procedures Analysis & Risk Management Governance, Control and Implementation Measurement Methodologies Technology & Data Integrity Credit Strategy & Risk Tolerance A complete and coherent risk management framework contains the following elements

17 Foundation: Credit Rating and Underwriting Standards Risk Identification, Origination, Credit Administration, etc. Short Term: Managing Expected Loss Risk Identification, Transaction Structuring, Approval & Pricing Decisions, Reserving, etc. Near Term: Managing Economic Capital / Credit VaR Portfolio Risk Concentration, Risk Based Limits, etc. Vision: Managing Risk/Return Pricing decisions,Performance measurement, business and customer segmentation, compensation, etc. A business model view of Credit Risk Infrastructure components

18 Businesses have to contend with Expected and Unexpected Losses Expected Losses Expected Losses –Anticipated –Cost of doing business –Charged to provisions –Captured in pricing –Relatively easier to measure Assessing expected loss includes determining exposure, default probability and severity Assessing expected loss includes determining exposure, default probability and severity Unexpected Losses Unexpected Losses –Unanticipated but inevitable –Must be planned for –Covered by reserves –Allocated to businesses –Difficult to measure Assessing unexpected loss requires making qualitative judgments around potential volatility of average losses Assessing unexpected loss requires making qualitative judgments around potential volatility of average losses

21 Credit rating system, all individual borrower (debtors?) has their own credit rating, which partially determines their asset price and discount rate. Credit rating system, all individual borrower (debtors?) has their own credit rating, which partially determines their asset price and discount rate. The borrowers (debtors?) in the same credit rating should have the same migration and default possibility. The borrowers (debtors?) in the same credit rating should have the same migration and default possibility. Movement in asset-return is caused by both systematic risk and individual risk (?) (individual credit risk for each debtor). Systematic risks are reflected in country and industry index, individual debtors stock earning ratio should be similar their asset return. Movement in asset-return is caused by both systematic risk and individual risk (?) (individual credit risk for each debtor). Systematic risks are reflected in country and industry index, individual debtors stock earning ratio should be similar their asset return. Spot and forward interest rate is normally fixed, hence the model is not sensitive to the interest rate movement.

24 Credit derivatives can be treated as a tool to transfer risk from one party to another Credit derivatives can be treated as a tool to transfer risk from one party to another In market risk management, overall risk has been transferred ( interest rate risk, foreign exchange risk, securities risk, and etc.) In market risk management, overall risk has been transferred ( interest rate risk, foreign exchange risk, securities risk, and etc.) Within Credit Risk management, only credit related risks can been transferred Within Credit Risk management, only credit related risks can been transferred Credit Derivatives

25 High dependency in company default is the hot topic in credit risk analysis. This is critical in the portfolio investment in company debts and credit derivative pricing. High dependency in company default is the hot topic in credit risk analysis. This is critical in the portfolio investment in company debts and credit derivative pricing. Default dependency is influenced by both micro and macro factors. Default dependency is influenced by both micro and macro factors. As companies are running in similar macro economy environment. If the cause to default is caused by macroeconomic factors, e.g. interest rate, inflation rate, inflation rate and utility price, the dependency is called default correlation. As companies are running in similar macro economy environment. If the cause to default is caused by macroeconomic factors, e.g. interest rate, inflation rate, inflation rate and utility price, the dependency is called default correlation. If the company defaults because of its own management or production, e.g. goods supply and asset holdings, the dependency is called default contagion.
