Q.1. Explain the Functions of Integrated Treasury of a Bank. Answer: Traditionally, the forex dealing room of a bank managed the foreign exchange dealings mainly arising out of merchant transactions (FX buying from & selling to customers) and consequent cover operations in inter-bank market. The domestic treasury / investment operations were independent of forex dealings of a bank. Treasury operations were treated as cost centre, specifically devoted to reserve management (CRR &SLR) and consequent fund management. Treasury also undertook investment in both Government and

Liquidity & Funds Management: It involves (i) analysis of major cash flows arising out of asset-liability transactions (ii) providing a balanced and well-diversified liability base to fund the various assets in the balance sheet of the bank (iii) providing policy inputs to strategic planning group of the bank on funding mix (currency, tenor & cost) and yield expected in credit and investment. c.

Asset Liability Management & Term Money: ALM calls for determining the optimal size and growth rate of the balance sheet and also prices the Assets and Liabilities in accordance with prescribed guidelines. Successive reduction in CRR rates and ALM practices by banks increase the demand for funds for tenor of above 15 days (Term Money) to match duration of their assets. Page 1 of 10

Risk Management – Integrated treasury manages all market risks associated with a bank’s liabilities and assets. The market risk of liabilities pertains to floating interest rate risks and asset & liability mismatches. The market risk for assets can arise from (i) unfavorable change in interest rates (ii) increasing levels of disintermediation (iii) securitization of assets (iv) Emergence of credit derivatives etc., While the credit risk assessment continues to rest with Credit Department, the Treasury would monitor the cash inflow impact from changes in asset prices due to interest rate changes by adhering to prudential exposure limits.

e. Transfer Pricing: Treasury is to ensure that the funds of the bank are deployed optimally, without sacrificing yield or liquidity. An integrateda Treasury unit has an

Q.2. Distinguish between Collateralized Borrowing & Lending Obligation, Repo and reverse Repo

Answer: “Collateralized Borrowing and Lending Obligation” is popularly known as CBLO. It is recently developed money market instrument in India (developed by CCI Land approved by RBI) for the benefit of the entities who have either been phased out from interbank call money market or have been given restricted participation in terms of ceiling on call borrowing and lending transactions and who do not have access to the call money market. CBLO is a discounted instrument available in electronic book a entry form for the

The participants open a Constituent SGL (CSGL) Account with CCIL for depositing securities which are offered as collateral / margin for borrowing and lending of funds. Eligible securities are Central Government securities including Treasury Bills. A repo or repurchase Agreement is an instrument of money market. Usually reserve bank (federal bank in U.S) and commercial banks involve in repo transactions but not restricted to these two. Individuals, banks, financial institutes can also participate in repurchase agreement. Repo is a collateralized lending i.e. the banks which borrow money from Reserve Bank to meet short term needs have to sell securities, usually bonds to Reserve Bank with an agreement to repurchase the same at a predetermined rate and date.

of the cash (usually Reserve Bank) the securities sold by the borrower are the collateral against default risk and for the borrower of cash (usually commercial banks) cash received from the lender is the collateral. Reserve bank charges some interest rate on the cash borrowed by banks. This rate is usually less than the interest rate on bonds as the borrowing is collateral. This interest rate is called ‘repo rate’. The lender of securities is said to be doing repo whereas the lender of cash is said to be doing ‘reverse repo’. In a reverse repo Reserve Bank borrows money from banks by lending securities. The interest paid by Reserve Bank in this case is called reverse repo rate. Borrower of funds is called as seller of repo and lender of funds is called as buyer of repo.aWhen the term of the

Q.4. Explain with the help of an example the concept of ‘Cap’ and ‘Floor’ in relation to an Interest Rate Option.

Answer:

This cap/floor calculator has been developed by the World Bank’s Treasury staff as a flexible tool for calculating indicative pricing for interest rate caps, floors and collars. This manual provides step-by-step details of how to use the cap/floor calculator. If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact the World Bank astaff at the numbers

For IBRD loans, the interest payment date must fall on either the 1st or the 15th of the month. The interest payment date corresponding to the last interest payment period is capped or collared. In most cases, this date would be at least six months after the First Payment Date, should fall on an interest payment date on the underlying loan, and should not exceed the final maturity date of the underlying loan. (See example under “First Payment Date”). The Last Payment Date cannot precede the First Payment Date. To create a caplet (an interest rate cap on a single interest period), the Last Payment Date should be identical to the First Payment Date. The annual interest rate volatility is the Page 6 of 10

program will use to calculate the cap or floor premium. The borrower is required to enter the schedule of outstanding loan principal amounts to be capped or collared, beginning on the interest payment date preceding the first interest payment period to be capped or collared. The Cap/Floor Calculator requires market data on money market and swap rates comprising the yield curves for the three major currencies offered â&#x20AC;&#x201C; USD, EUR and JPY.

Q.6. Case study: An Indian company is planning to invest $100 million in USA. The return on investment is expected to be 50%. The spot rate is Rs45 per $. One year forward rate is Rs46.00 per $. The company can access rupee funds in India at 15%. An American Bank has offered to supply $100 million at a rate of Rs44 per $ and swap the same amount at Rs44 per $ after one year. The bank will charge Interest at 10 % on the loan. Explain whether the company should accept the bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offer. Assume that there is no restriction for repatriation of funds in both dollars and rupees.

In this problem, suppose, company accesses the rupee funds, the cost of the borrowings is more while comparing to the borrowings from the American Bank. American Bank provides a fixed of offer and swap rate. So, it is safe to obtain the bank loan. Therefore, Indian company can borrow loan from American Bank.
