Description:

This paper explains that, even though transformation of deposits into loans generates a return but engenders financial risks and particularly an interest rate risk, the Basel II Committee does not provide any standardized method to manage this crucial risk. The author adapts the Markowitz portfolio selection theory on the banking, particularly on the commercial balance-sheet. This model is tested on Credit Foncier de Monaco and finds that this tool maximizes under constraints the risk-adjusted performance and determines the optimal allocation of the assets. In conclusion, the theoretical objectives are compared with the actual results. Numerous formulas are used throughout the paper and seven appendices are included.

From the Paper:

"The bank uses options to hedge against the exercise of inserted options. The interest rate option is the right for the holder to borrow from (put) or lend to (call) the writer an underlying at the strike rate against a premium at each date (American option), at predetermined dates (Bermuda option) or at maturity (European option). The basis strategy of the bank is long call or short put in case of decrease of interest rates and short call and long put in case of increase of interest rates."
