Two values Market value = price of you sell it changes daily Book value = your value net of amortization changes daily Three computations Interest accrual (coupons) Accretion (earnings) Amortization (expense) What Did I Earn? Earnings = accrual plus (net amortization + accrued) Amortization from notes bought above par decreases earnings

Accretion from notes bought below par increases earnings Accounting for the Portfolio Buying securities Accounting for securities At par = $1 for $1 face (price of 100) at par Below par = below $1 or 100 at a discount Above par = above $1 or 100

at a premium All affect the principal only The book value at maturity must equal face value (100) Straight line amortization/accretion Earnings from securities are from: Earning from the changes in principal (premium/discount) Earning from interest accrued in a coupon (accrued interest) Market Value Changes Daily Market value is quoted as principal only Market value equals:

Current price x face value 101.22 x $100,000 = $101,220 98.3 x $100,000 = $ 98,300 Certificates of Deposit always priced at 100 Market will always equal face amount 100 x $100,000 = $100,000 Fair Market Value When do I report it? What is change in market value? Pricing

Require an independent source Gains and Losses realized and unrealized Structured securities can be tricky Calls, step-ups, floaters, indexed, TIPS, pools Mortgage backed securities need more particularly subjective/judgmental pricing Prepayment speed assumptions, PSA rates Small issue pricing comparables Earnings

Earnings = amortization + accrued Note bought at a premium 1. 2. Monthly amortization = daily amort. * # days plus Coupon earnings = coupon rate * face/12 Note bought at a discount 1. Monthly accretion = daily accretion * # days plus What did I earn? Income equals: Total Accrued + Net Amortization

Investment Earnings recognizes coupon flow (accrued) recognizes original price of security (principal) Accrual basis does not include cash coupons Reporting Issues

How Do I Buy a Security? Security Transactions Banks Broker/Dealers Can sell depository CD or be a broker Can sell securities of different types Advice and Management Investment Advisers

Find, competitively bid and purchase for you Can not sell anything Act as your investment officer Buying A Security Set the time horizon and amount Get competitive bids/offers Award the winner Inform the losers Write the trade ticket Access to the Market Brokers/dealers access the markets Market distribution process

A broker puts buyer and seller together A dealer sells securities fromCorporate an US Treasury US Agencies entities inventory - Primary dealer structure - -Selling groups - - banks and investment bankers Purchases and Sales Settlement Cash (same day) Regular (next day) Bid (sale) vs. Offer (buy)

Independent safekeeping Settlement Parties involved: YOU Broker Banks Timing is critical Documents are critical Settlement Require delivery versus payment (DVP)

Send every broker your delivery instructions It is the law No broker safekeeping Get the instructions from your bank Instructions are your ABA number and account Document by trade ticket and confirmation ? Clearing confirmation shows security arrived Safekeeping receipt shows bank is holding the security ABA 11-12345611 for account of ------ District

Delivery and Settlement Language Federal Reserves FedWire DTC (Depository Trust Corporation) PTC (Participatory Trust) Delivery versus Payment Free Delivery DK (Dont know the trade) Bankers Bankers selling a traditional depository CD

Banks acting as a broker If your bank holds your securities they can not be your broker Banks are not advisers Does not perfect DVP Still need multiple brokers for competition New factors for depository CD: Terrorism Act documentation Collateralized versus FDIC funds

Bank CD Trade Settlement Getting yields from multiple banks Check for details Day count, coupon pay dates, good maturity Get Policy Certification If not FDIC, need Depository Collateral Agreement Terrorism documentation takes time Broker or Dealer

Broker No inventory Transaction based FINRA Regulation Capitalization Retail Institutional Dealer Maintains

inventory FINRA Regulation Primary Dealer Reports to NY Fed Capital monitored Open market Primary Dealer List www.ny.frb.org Broker/Dealer vs. Adviser Broker/Dealers sell a security

Advisers SEC registered as advisers Must have a CRD # Can not charge on a transaction/security Portfolio perspective Only an adviser can do competitives for you Advisers SEC registered under 1940 Act A money manager who advises and can not sell a security

Discretionary vs non-discretionary management public is always non-discretionary because of cash flows A broker can not be an adviser A broker can not do your competitive bidding Where is Your Protection What danger do you really have????? Peer Experience and References Credit Lines Capital Adequacy

FINRA Registration and CRD Report State Securities Registration Market Involvement Public Sector Involvement References Audited Financial Statements provided annually So what do I do? Finding brokers to use Peer group ideas and references Use at least 3 bank/broker Feel comfortable with the person

Use at least one primary and all institutional brokers Its a telephone market no need to meet Establishing a relationship Talk about your policy and limits Get basic information Backup person and numbers Delivery instructions Send your policy and certifications Modified certifications

And then what? Making an investment Set your time horizon Tell the brokers what you need/want I need the best rate not past xx/xx/xx in an agency or treasury Wait for them to do the research Set the maximum maturity date

They will bring back alternatives for you to chose from Make the decision Inform them all what you bought (the cover) Feedback is important And then.? You chose on date and yield Do not go past your due date if it is set Chose the highest yield (true or govt yield) Settling the security

The broker has your delivery instructions Tell your bank it is coming (trade ticket) Broker will send the bond to the bank Investment Steps Set your maximum date (your time horizon) Set your maximum money to invest Have a general idea of where rates are Look at value in all markets available Look at them all !

Check the alternatives authorized for you: CD T-Bill FNMA disco FNMA note FHLMC note SLMA note TVA note 3.01 % 3.85 % 4.01 % 4.00 % 4.07 %

4.09 % 4.12 % What are your considerations? The Buying Decision Determine the maximum maturity (time horizon) Offers will differ in maturity and type Do not go beyond that maturity Request offers short of or on that date Are they all authorized? Do they fit diversification?

Do I know what they are? Chose the best yield Active Strategies Expand on the Same Basics Advantages Improved yields Utilize market opportunities Techniques

yield curve analysis (rate anticipation) riding the curve spread and sector analysis market timing swaps Larger Entities Some core cash Fund types provide additional opportunity Annual review required Rewards and responsibilities One or more constant dollar pools Bank sweep accounts Flex for large bond funds Ladder of securities matching liabilities

Steps in Developing Market View 1. Perspective on world and geo-political situation 2. View of business environment 3. Market and economic conditions Yield curve movement Relative value 4. Your unique situation a So what do I do about all this Do your cash flow Write your policy Choose at least two brokers and qualify them Create a short term ladder

Create a longer term ladder Out to 4-6 months if rates are favorable to go further If not move extra funds to the high point in rates Do competitive bidding Do delivery versus payment Get started! Be careful Get started Good luck! Linda T. Patterson Patterson & Associates Austin, TX [email protected]
