Get to know the ‘big picture’ of markets and institutions. When markets are calm, you can get away with focusing on your products, your markets, and your customers or trading partners. Securites a crisis, however, everyone and everything reacts to the same macro forces. To take one example from the ”09 crisis, the deterioration of the housing market tuc,man stress on structured mortgage products and on the balance sheets of financial institutions, which, in turn, led to the collapse of a seemingly unrelated market, namely that for municipal auction rate securities.
Weakened financial institutions were securitoes in a position to support the auctions, which were failing as investors abandoned nearly all short-term investments in structured products. Financial businesses lose incoke by bets on some market going bad, but they most often fail because they lose their financing. For example, at the start of the financial crisis, many hedge funds that invested exclusively in mortgage-backed securities on a levered basis were forced to unwind and cease operations.
This was in part due to portfolio losses, but mostly due to depletion of capital from having to post more and more collateral in support of their borrowing. An even more important example, of course, was the threat to broker-dealers during the crisis, whose repo and commercial paper funding evaporated.
Be aware of money market spreads, basis swaps, and credit risk. This spread, which can be thought of as the cost of locking up funds for three months relative to borrowing at the overnight fed funds rate, became a key metric of financial stress during the crisis.
OIS in a basis swap. More broadly speaking, this all means that credit risk, seecurities at short maturities and even for historically solid counterparties, can no longer be assumed away.
Learn how the practice of discounting has changed. Until relatively recently, the cash flows of swaps were discounted at rates derived from par swap rates. This was securitise a perfectly sound methodology in theory, but so long as LIBOR was not too different from the cost of funding, the methodology was good enough.
During the crisis, however, when LIBOR rose way above the cost of funding, discounting at par swap rates gave significantly misleading results.
As a result, the most sophisticated practitioners completed their conversion to a two-curve pricing methodology, and, in JuneLCH Clearnet converted to OIS discounting. Follow regulatory changes to derivatives markets. The Dodd-Frank law and other regulatory initiatives set out to require that certain swaps be cleared and that others be subject to new rules and capital requirements. Despite the tuckmman passage of time, however, many of the details of the new regulatory regime, including the criteria for mandated clearing and the extent of capital requirements for non-cleared swaps, remain in flux.
As a result, significant uncertainties exist with respect to the costs of using and of making markets in swaps. Tools for Today’s Markets, Third Edition, was revised, among other reasons, to discuss these and other issues that have assumed greater importance as a result of the financial crisis.
Both working professionals and newcomers to the broad, complex, and competitive field of fixed income tukman appreciate the approach of authors Bruce Tuckman and Angel Serrat in this Third Edition, securitise Fixed Income Securities, Third Edition begins with an overview of global fixed income markets, focusing on those in the United States, Europe, and Japan.
