Higher gap ► Higher the insterest rate risk If Gap>0 Asset Sensitive Position (RSA>RSL) If rates increase ► NII If rates decrease ► NII If Gap<0 Liability Sensitive Position (RSA<RSL) If rates increase ► NII If rates descrease ► NII 12 Applying the Repricing Model ∆ NIIi = (GAPi) ∆ Ri = (RSAi - RSLi) ∆ ri Example: In the 3-month bucket, gap is…… If rates rise by 1%, ∆ NIIi = 13 If we consider the cumulative 1-year gap, CGAP= \$15 mln ∆ NIIi = (CGAPi) ∆ ri = T ≤ 3-month 3-month < T ≤ 6-month 6-month< T≤1-year 14 CGAP Ratio • May be useful to express CGAP in ratio form as, CGAP/Assets. Provides direction of exposure and Scale of the exposure. • Example: • CGAP/A = \$15 million / \$270 million = 0.056, or 5.6 percent. Reminder?
