1 Harnessing the Network of Banking Intelligence Shortening the lifecycle for trading new structured products Guillaume Aubert Misys Structured Products Expert Head of Business Solutions EMEA Misys Treasury & Capital Markets

2 Harnessing the Network of Banking Intelligence Exotic and Structured Products Opportunities and Issues Opportunities –Significant growth in structured products volume Equity, FX, Interest Rates, Credit, Hybrids –Significant evolution in products complexity Yesterday's exotics becoming todays vanilla: Variance swaps, Index CDOs… –More profitable than vanilla instruments Higher yield / spread –Gain competitive advantage with innovation Branding exercise –Number if players is extending regional banks, hedge funds..

3 Harnessing the Network of Banking Intelligence Exotic and Structured Products Opportunities and Issues Current Issues –Managed in spreadsheet - Operational Risk Lack of real control/visibility on trading activity/exposure Manual and costly processing No Audit-trail –Managed in multiple systems - Reconciliation Nightmare FO / BO By Asset Class (Hybrid Products) –Insufficient valuation/risk framework – Market/Credit Risk Approximate valuation Insufficient assessment of counterparty/market exposure –Limited reactivity/creativity in a highly competitive environment Business ideas/opportunities are there IT or Product Control is not ready

15 Harnessing the Network of Banking Intelligence - Components -Formulas New Product: Building Components and Formulas

16 Harnessing the Network of Banking Intelligence Components and Formulas - Components -Formulas

17 Harnessing the Network of Banking Intelligence Control and Security Trade Input and Access

18 Harnessing the Network of Banking Intelligence Trade Input and Access Reduce and Track Operational Risk –Simplified Trades Entry Allows quick entry of complex trade and prevents booking error –Configurable trade derivation/enrichment Fully controlled by static data instead of hard-coded –Read-Only Fields Protecting a formula ensures the product remains as initially designed and does not get altered at the time of trade entry –Restricted Access to products family Only authorized users must have access to specific complex products. The system must protect against unauthorized access

19 Harnessing the Network of Banking Intelligence Callable Trigger PRDC cont When structured products becomes as easy as vanilla…

20 Harnessing the Network of Banking Intelligence Trade Lifecycle and Integration For free ?!

21 Harnessing the Network of Banking Intelligence Trade STP Trade events management is inherited from the components types: –Market Underlying =>Reset events –Credit Underlying=>Default event, Post-Default Lifecycle –Option=>Exercise event –Barrier=>Crossing event –etc… Accounting and P&L events are also inherited from component types: –All cash flows components => Cash events –interest components => Accrued Interest –Fee components => Amortizations –etc… Confirmation and Documentation: –A generic structured product framework allows for direct and automated mapping of the product parameters and formulas into a document template

22 Harnessing the Network of Banking Intelligence Interfaces and Reporting A typical problem in interfacing and reporting structured products is the complexity of data model and the non- compatibility of the data model from one product to the other Implemented solution: –Product meta-description that summarizes the instruments in a flat, simplified and standardized model –Mapping between the product parameters and the flat representation can be a simple configuration –Example: the Callable Trigger PRDC presented earlier can be viewed for reporting/interfacing purposes as:

23 Harnessing the Network of Banking Intelligence Valuation Models Trends…

24 Harnessing the Network of Banking Intelligence Valuation Models Trends Until recently pricing model integration was for the most part product specific: –One Financial Product => One Pricing Model implementation Trend is shifting to a generic approach for several reasons: –Structured Product and Pricing Models are getting more and more sophisticated –Latest model development such as affine models provides ideal tool for generic and multi-asset calibration –Deployment of grid computing framework –Time-to-market with generic models is much more efficient

25 Harnessing the Network of Banking Intelligence What about Models Integration? Product independent pricing model implementation in the structured product engine requires: –Automatic detection of the risk factors This is possible by analyzing underlying, and payment currencies –Proper separation of the different methods called during the valuation process: Calibration Instruments Underlying process modeling Numerical Procedure –More importantly: easy translation of the product features (pay-off formulas, path-dependencies, Callable option..) So that these features do not need to be re-implemented at the pricing model level (in a tree or a MC simulation), and can be automatically interpreted by the pricing model from the product description –Grid enabled at the pricing level For ex: MC simulation path
