Preliminary scope of work
Kreditní riziko protistrany se ukázalo být hlavním zdrojem ztrát během nedávné finanční krize a proto je velmi důležité se jím úspěšně zabývat. Nedostatek Baselu I a II ležel v ohodnocení kreditního rizika, které bylo založeno na modelu nazvaném Value at Risk. Toto ohodnocení dovolovalo bankám použít nižší kapitálové požadavky a také ohodnocení různých aktiv jako více likvidních, a tedy méně rizikových. Tento způsob byl chybný a proto jsme byli svědky například pádu Lehman Brothers. V mé práci se budu snažit adresovat tento náročný problém a vypátrat implikace, které bude mít nová regulace Basel III na kreditní riziko.
Preliminary scope of work in English
The counterparty credit risk proved to be one of the leading sources of losses during the recent financial crisis and thus it is of great importance to deal with it successfully. The shortcoming of Basel I and II was the estimation of counterparty risk, which was based on a computation technique called Value at Risk. The estimation allowed banks to use lower capital charge and also it assessed various assets to be more liquid, hence less risky. This assessment was wrong and so we witnessed for instance the fall of Lehman Brothers. In my thesis I will try to address this challenging problem and investigate the implications that the new regulation rules of Basel III will have on counterparty risk.
