  • Technology is a powerful force of change in our world. We live longer and arguably better lives than our great-great-grandparents because of advances in medical, communication, and transportation technology. As we enter this new century there is apparently no end in sight for the transformative potential of human innovation. However, there is now ample evidence that the real legacy of invention is defined in equal parts by its benefits to society as well as its costs. There is no technology that comes without some level of risk.

  • Brewer, Minton, and Moser (2000), we evaluate an equation relating the determinants of C&I lending and the impact of derivatives on C&I lending activity. The major finding in this study is that the interest-rate derivatives allow commercial banks to lessen their systematic exposure to changes in interest rates, which enables banks to increase their lending activities without increasing the total risk level faced by the banks. This consequently increases the banks’ abilities to provide more intermediation services.

  • The dominant nature of this long-short or spread trading activity explains why hedge funds do so well in market downturns (i.e. it is not directional). But it also explains why leverage needs to be relatively high: investing in a strong stock market generates strong returns, while investing in a low-risk spread in a long-short strategy does not. So the trade has to be levered up a number of times in order for the spread trades to generate competitive returns (while keeping the benefit of avoiding directional risk in the market).

To estimate portfolio sensitivity, FHLBanks generally use, at a minimum, duration. Because of the presence of options in most portfolios, duration may not be an effective risk measure.
