Overview

Credit and credit risk permeates every corner of the financial world. Previously credit tended to be acknowledged only when dealing with counterparty credit risk, high-yield debt or credit-linked derivatives, now it affects all things, including such fundamental concepts as assessing the present value of a future cash flow. The purpose of this book is to analyze credit from the beginning—the point at which any borrowing entity (sovereign, corporate, etc.) decides to raise capital through its treasury operation. To describe the debt management activity, the book presents examples from the development banking world which not only presents a clearer banking structure but in addition sits at the intersection of many topical issues (multi-lateral agencies, quasi-governmental entities, Emerging Markets, shrinking pool of AAA borrowers, etc.).

This book covers:

  • Curve construction (instruments, collateralization, discounting, bootstrapping)
  • Credit and fair valuing of loans (modeling, development institutions)
  • Emerging markets and liquidity (liquidity, credit, capital control, development)
  • Bond pricing (credit, illiquid bonds, recovery pricing)
  • Treasury (funding as an asset swap structure, benchmarks for borrowing/investing)
  • Risk and asset liability management (leverage, hedging, funding risk)

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
“This is an important and timely book that demonstrates the motivation and mathematics underlying the role of Treasury in banking. From first principles, the theory of development banking, emerging market finance, and funding is derived based on the underlying interest rate products available.”
Jamie Walton, Global Head of Rates, FX and Emerging Markets Quants, Morgan Stanley

“An outstanding description of what banking is all about. From the point of view of a treasury in a development bank, Biagio performs a deep analysis of the essential activities of banking, so useful in a moment when, after times of delusion, credit and funding are again recognized to be the heart of finance. Everyone in this field will find this book detailed, useful, and yet enjoyable.”
Massimo Morini, Head of Interest Rate and Credit Models, Banca IMI
