Assume a 8-year, $5,000 par value bond paying a 10% coupon annually and a YTM of 12%.  The prime rate is 7%.  There will be a charge of $60 in fees and will have a 14% compensating balance imposed.  The reserve requirement is 11%.  The Treasury Note is yielding 1.25%.  If the loan defaults, the bank will lose 65% of its money.  Assume there is a concern of an increase in yields of 4%.  The ROE is 4.5%.

This loan is combined in a portfolio with a second loan that contains a face value of $3,000.  This second loan has a Moody’s KMV Return of 3.5% and Moody’s KMV Risk of 12%.  The correlation of the two loans is -0.65 and the bank is willing to take a maximum of a 20% loss.  The national average allocation for the first loan is 35% and the national average allocation for the second loan is 65%.
