Deposit Decay Modelling & Liquidity Stress Testing in PolyPaths

As a reminder, PolyPaths has a flexible framework for modelling Deposits where users can define a repricing formula based on either rate level or rate changes period-over-period. Alternatively, our Deposit Decay API allows users to integrate own internal models that forecast dynamic decay rates into PolyPaths. Once modelled, Deposits as well as other securities, can be run using PolyPaths ALM, which has several features including capabilities to measure liquidity risk. Within ALM users can customize Strategies which allow different outlooks on the balance sheet such as targeting growth levels, changing the mix of asset or liability types, or using strategies in forecasting liquidity stress.

Pathways Issue No. 42

The March 2023 issue of Pathways is now available! In this month’s issue, Daniel Wang explores how VaR can be leveraged across large data sets where LIBOR data may terminate while SOFR may not cover an entire lookback period. To handle this, PolyPaths has introduced built-in and extendible fallback logic, allowing users to designate fallback curves and volatility surfaces that can be used as proxies for historical intervals for which the primary driver curve or vol may not be available.
