While derivative instruments brsent immense opportunity for making a quantum leap in noninterest income and also for hedging market risk, it exposes the Bank to various risks. The Bank has adopted the following mechanism for managing different risks arising out of derivative transactions.
In terms of the structure, operations in the Treasury Branch are segregated into following three functional areas, which are provided with trained officers with necessary systems support and their responsibilities are clearly defined.
I) Front Office — Dealing Room. Ensures Compliance with trade origination requirements as per Bank’s policy and RBI guidelines.
II) Mid-Office --- Risk Management, Accounting Policies and Management
III) Back Office- Settlement, Reconciliation, Accounting.
Mid Office monitors transactions in the trading book and excesses, if any, are reported to Risk management Department for necessary action.

Daily Mark to Market position is reported to Risk Management Department, for onward reporting of the risk profile to the Directors’ Committee on the Assets and Liability Management.

Various Risk Limits are set up and actual exposures are monitored vis-à-vis the limits. These limits are set up taking in to account market volatility, business strategy and management experience. Risk limits are in place for risk parameters viz. PV01, stop loss, counterparty credit exposure. Actual positions are measured against these limits periodically and breaches if any are reported promptly. The Bank ensures that the Gross PV01 position arising out of all non option derivative contracts is within the 0.25% of net worth of the Bank.

The hedge transactions are monitored on a regular basis. The notional profit or loss calculated on Mark to Market basis, PV01 and VaR on these deals are reported to the Assets Liability Committee (ALCO) every month. Hedge effectiveness is the degree to which changes in the fair value or cash flows of the hedged items that are attributed to a hedged risk are offset by changes in the fair value or cash flows of the hedging instruments. This exercise is carried out periodically to ensure hedge effectiveness.
d) The hedged/un-hedged transactions are recorded separately. The hedged transactions are accounted for on accrual basis. All trading contracts are mark-to-market and resultant gross gain or loss is recorded in income statement.
