 May 26-28 2010: Invited Talk at the International Monetary Fund, Washington DC, Workshop on “Operationalizing Systemic Risk Monitoring“.  Sheri’s IMF talk included updates on her “Too Interconnected To Fail: Financial Contagion and Systemic Risk In Network Model of CDS and Other Credit Enhancement Obligations of US Banks” paper.  These included the CDS network based on FDIC 2010 data that incorporates the CCP ICE.  The network is found to be no more stable in the face of failure of big broker dealers than the pre ICE case resulting in tax payer bail out being necessary again; also it was indicated that ICE is undercapitalized; the IMF market data based banking stability index contains no more information than say the VIX index and is mostly coincidental with the crisis rather than capable of yielding early warning signal; the need to urgently repeal any incentives (in Basel II and III) for credit risk transfer via the use of credit derivatives or other rating based credit risk guarantees that reduce capital requirements on bank assets from 8% to 1.6 % via risk weighted  was reiterated again as there is no evidence that the CDS market can deliver the credit risk mitigationsought for it under the Basel framework    IMF Conference Proceedings  Slides Sheri Markose (University of Essex)
