IFB Bank's Risk Management Guidelines

1. Credit Risk Management Guidelines:

  • Loan-to-Value (LTV) Ratios: IFB Bank enforces a maximum LTV ratio of 80% for residential mortgages, ensuring a cushion against potential market value declines.
  • Debt Service Coverage Ratio (DSCR): Commercial borrowers must maintain a DSCR greater than 1.2x, signifying adequate income to cover loan repayments.

2. Liquidity Risk Management Guidelines:

  • Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR): Adhering to regulatory standards, IFB maintains an LCR of 100%, ensuring sufficient liquidity to meet short-term obligations.
  • Net Stable Funding Ratio (NSFR):** Our NSFR is maintained at a minimum of 100%, aligning available and required stable funding over a one-year stress period.

3. Market Risk Management Guidelines:

  • Value at Risk (VaR): IFB Bank's 1-day VaR limit, at a 95% confidence level, does not exceed $10 million, mitigating potential market volatility impacts.
  • Stress Testing Thresholds: Stress tests simulate adverse market movements (e.g., a 30-40% equity price drop) to ensure resilience.

4. Operational Risk Management Guidelines:

  • Loss Tolerance Levels: Operational loss tolerance is capped at $5 million annually, beyond which strategic corrective measures are undertaken.

5. Reputational Risk Management Guidelines:

  • Social Media Monitoring: Negative social media mentions are quantified, with interventions initiated beyond a certain threshold.

6. Systemic Risk Management Guidelines:

  • Capital Adequacy Ratios: IFB adheres to Basel III requirements, with CET1 capital ratio at 4.5%, Tier 1 capital ratio at 6%, and a total capital ratio at 8%.
  • Leverage Ratio: A leverage ratio of at least 3% is maintained as a safeguard against excessive leverage.

7. Legal and Compliance Risk Management Guidelines:
