  • Interest income is the most important source of revenue for most of the banks. The aim of this paper is to assess the impact of dierent interest rate scenarios on the banks' interest income. As we do not know the interest rate sensitivity of real banks, we construct for each bank a portfolio with a similar composition of its assets and liabilities, called 'tracking bank'. We evaluate the eect of 260 historical interest rate shocks on the tracking banks of German savings banks and cooperative banks.

  • The maturity decision will reflect your view of the direction of short- term interest rates over the coming weeks or months. You’ll want a longer average maturity or duration when interest rates are falling and a shorter one when they’re rising. A working knowledge of economics will help you sort through the market drivers that determine the direction of interest rates.

  • One of the core tenets of Scrum is that the duration of the Sprint is never extended – it ends on the assigned date regardless of whether the team has completed the work it committed to. If the team has not completed their Sprint Goal, they have to stand up at the end of the Sprint and acknowledge that they did not meet their commitment. The idea is that this creates a very visible feedback loop, and teams are forced to get better at estimating what they are capable of accomplishing in a given Sprint, and then delivering it more...

  • As a matter of sound investment practice, FHLBanks should be able to measure the price sensitivity for individual securities and for the entire portfolio. In general, techniques used to measure the risk of individual securities are also appropriate for the entire portfolio.

  • A security stress test involves evaluating the price sensitivity of a security, or a portfolio, over a number of different interest rate changes. To identify and measure portfolio risk, maintain duration of equity limits, and adhere to sound investment practices, FHLBanks are required to estimate the value of their investment portfolios for different parallel interest rate changes. However, since parallel shifts rarely occur, FHLBanks should, in general, also measure portfolio value changes for non-parallel shifts, such as yield curve steepening and flattening scenarios.
