The demand for OIS discounting has grown significantly since 2007 where companies found it increasingly difficult to raise funds at the benchmark funding term. As Libor-OIS spreads widened, funders were forced to look to the overnight market which lead to a surge in OIS volume and speculative interest due to ongoing market volatility. Today, the shift in funding terms continues to be driven by market changes in the calculation of daily margin postings and newly imposed rules of collateralization for swaps and futures. As institutions are in the process of migrating to new market standards, questions still remain as to the impact on existing portfolios as well as how to effectively manage instruments with longer dated maturities when spreads in LIBOR v. OIS rates begin to diverge.

The On-Demand Webinar presented by Anna Barbashova in March 2012 reviews the following scenarios:

  • How a swap portfolio’s value differed under each approach, at four snapshots in time:
    • Pre-crisis c.2007
    • At the height of the crisis (Sept. 2008)
    • Two years post-crisis (Sept. 2010)
    • Today
  • If a swap’s “moneyness” (at the money, vs. in or out of the money) makes a difference
  • How a swap’s maturity factors into the calculations
  • The impact of OIS Discounting on risk sensitivity calculations
    • Which risk numbers are right?
    • Should I rethink my hedges?
