Nomination - Best Econometric Thesis Award (βETA)

In order to improve the statistical models of Open Source Investor Services, Michael Hogers researched the relation between default rates and loss given default for US mortgages. The thesis has been nominated by coordinators of the Econometric Institute of Rotterdam and represents the Quantitative Finance specialisation. The thesis shows that while macro variables and default rates share common cycles for conventional US mortgages, a unique cycle is observed for loss given default, implying that the relation between the default rate and loss given default is weak for conventional US mortgages.

PD model for Dutch SMEs

OSIS has developed a statistical model to predict the probability of default (PD) of Dutch SME’s in line with the Basel definition of default. In doing so we overcome the lack of data that small banks and alternative lenders have and allow them to receive recognition from regulators and institutional investors. We hope this model will support small banks and alternative lenders to become a competitive and growing source of financing in the Dutch SME market.


IFRS 13 Residential Mortgage Valuation

We determine a fair market value of Dutch Residential mortgages, in accordance with IFRS 13, using loan level data provided by the originators.

IFRS 13 does not specify a detailed approach to use for valuing assets and therefore there is no market standard for the valuation of mortgages. The market value is the price that a knowledgeable and willing seller and buyer would agree in an orderly arm's length transaction at the reference date. IFRS 13 essentially requires that such market participants would follow the aforementioned approach in valuation and use it as a basis to agree on the transaction price.

The Dutch Central Bank (DNB) has published guidance on the fair value determination of Dutch mortgages for prudential purposes. Our valuation method aims to meet both IFRS and prudential requirements. We take into consideration: amortization types, time to interest reset, NHG guarantees, current loan to values and product specific options (caps/floor) including the option of the borrower to prepay without penalty.
