Modeling advanced fund transfer pricing with an application of hull-white interest-rate tree in Turkish banking sector

Shakirov, Begzod
The Financial Crisis in 2008 has revealed the need for a more advanced management of liquidity risk in financial institutions. This thesis aims to introduce and implement an advanced Fund Transfer Pricing (FTP) model into banking industries of the developing countries. The methodology of the FTP model, constructed in this research, measures the cost of a product’s cash-flows by splitting them into a deterministic and a stochastic component. The cost of the deterministic part is assessed as an equivalent of the credit-default premium of an institution, whereas the cost of the stochastic component is modeled by a Brownian Motion. Moreover, in order to forecast the future outlook of FTP rates, a simulation of benchmark Interest Rates with an application of Hull-White model has been performed. The information provided by the expected cost of funding could be a guide to the management of a financial institution. The cost of Basel III liquidity metrics have also been applied into the model, which is one of the main contributions of this thesis to the field of Financial Mathematics. This thesis ends with a conclusion and a preview to future investigations and applications. 


Memorandum on a new financial architecture and new regulations
Mittnik, Stefan; Nell, Edward; Platen, Eckhart; Semmler, Willi; Chappe, Raphaele (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2009-6-1)
The financial crisis is global and is deeply rooted in a decade-long misuse of the financial market for rent-seeking. The financial industry has largely abandoned its role as a service industry, supposedly charging reasonable fees for the services of spreading risk and allocating capital and credit. Instead it provides a market for corporate control –mergers and acquisitions– and a casino for betting on or hedging practically any kind of risk –the derivatives market–.
Determinants of non-core liabilities in the turkish banking system
Demirölmez, Beren; Tunç, Gül İpek; Department of Economics (2017)
After the 2008 global financial crises, composition of bank liabilities has begun to draw more attention due to its important role in diagnosing financial vulnerability. According to literature, non-core liabilities are amongst the best indicators of financial crises and because of the more frequent data availability, they also provide real time signaling observation. Although there are various studies about non-core liabilities, there is only a very limited number of country specific studies. Therefore, ou...
Bankalarda Likidite Stres Testi ve Türk Bankacılık Sektörü için Bir Uygulama Önerisi
Delikanlı, İhsan Uğur; Kutlukaya, Mahmut; Uslu Kutlukaya, Esra (Iktisat Isletme ve Finans Dergisi, 2013-5-1)
The importance of liquidity risk for financial institutions has been better conceived after the global financial crisis. Therefore, in this paper a liquidity stress testing framework is proposed that could enhance the disclosure of financial institutions. First of all, a literature review related to liquidity risk and liquidity stress testing is given. In the following section, the regulatory framework in Turkey and Basel standards for liquidity risk are covered and the need for a liquidity risk stress test...

Banks are considered as the marginal and sophisticated investors of financial markets. This is evident in the Haddad and Sraer (2020) study that examines the US government bond excess returns. This study extends the Haddad/Sraer analysis to the Turkish government bond market. According to the forecasting results, exposure ratio provides explanatory power over bond excess returns, especially for longer maturities. On the other hand, output gap and industrial growth present strong in-sample forecasting power ...
Modeling correlation structure for collateralized debt obligations and determining the underlying credit default swap spread equations
İlalan, Deniz; Hayfavi, Azize; Omay, Tolga; Department of Financial Mathematics (2015)
Pricing complex financial derivatives such as collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) is considered as the main reason triggering the 2008 financial crisis. The correlation structure related to the credit risks involved in a portfolio for pricing issues have been tried to overcome via a Gaussian copula framework first introduced by David Li. This approach regards the correlation among the credit risks as normally distributed, enabling us to derive analytical solutions. However, despite its simplicity, this G...
