Page 3 of 3 3 The resulting table shows the valuations of the FI using a multiple of TBV, taking into consideration the US Treasury classified as AFS and HTM: While the calculation above yields a different answer, the value of the company is not different. Before moving securities from AFS to HTM, the FI should consider the limitations your FI will have with not being permitted to liquidate HTM to meet funding needs (although the HTM securities are still available for pledging, but pledging the HTM securities for funding needs will cause the balance sheet to increase and thus utilize more capital) or to reposition the FI's interest rate risk position. Chatham's Approach Chatham's approach to Balance Sheet Risk Management (BSRM) advisory starts with the FI providing three key data points: 1. What is the FI's interest rate view? 2. What is the FI's NII and EVE current position? 3. What is the FI's target interest rate risk position? Working with the FI's management team, Chatham uses the answers to these questions to develop BSRM strategies that meet the FI's objectives. Our strategies can include both cash instrument and/or derivative instrument solutions. Path of Least Accounting Resistance (POLAR) When proposing derivative-based solutions, Chatham follows its well-regarded POLAR (Path of Least Accounting Resistance) framework that considers the critical hedge accounting constraints that are associated with the FI's particular balance sheet structure to achieve the most accounting- friendly and economically viable solution.
