  Equity derivative - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An equity derivative is a derivative whose pay-offs depend on the value of an underlying share, basket of shares, or stock market index.
These are traded in the wholesale market, but are often used as the basis of guaranteed equity products, which offer retail buyers a participation if the equity index rises over time, but which provides guaranteed return of capital if the index falls.
Forward prices of equity indices are calculated by computing the cost of carry of holding a long position in the consitutuent parts of the index.

Non-marketable equity securities are subject to a periodic impairment review, including assessment of the investee's financial condition, the existence of subsequent rounds of financing and the impact of any relevant contractual preferences, as well as the investee's historical results of operations, projected results and cash flows.
For these derivatives, the effective portion of the gain or loss is reported as a component of other comprehensive income in stockholders' equity and is reclassified into earnings in the same period or periods in which the hedged transaction affects earnings, and within the same income statement line item.
In addition to the debt and equity investments that are offset by related derivatives, a portion of the company's trading asset portfolio consists of equity securities that are maintained to generate returns that partially offset changes in liabilities related to certain deferred compensation arrangements.

 FASB: Transition Provisions: Indexed Debt Hedging Equity Investment
Statement 133 defines derivative instruments based on their characteristics; the resulting definition includes certain instruments that were not previously separately accounted for as derivatives.
Upon transition, the embedded equity-based derivative that (1) was not previously separately accounted for as a derivative under generally accepted accounting principles before the date of initial application of Statement 133 and (2) meets the definition of a derivative under Statement 133 qualifies for the cumulative-effect-type adjustment described in paragraph 52(b) (as amended).
The embedded derivative, subsequent to the adoption of Statement 133, may be designated as the hedging instrument in either a fair value or cash flow hedging relationship, provided the appropriate criteria are met.

 FRB: Legal Interpretations -- Application of section 9 of the Federal Reserve Act regarding equity hedges for state ...
The OCC also recently determined that a national bank, subject to certain conditions and OCC review and approval, may acquire equity securities solely for the purpose of hedging the bank’s exposure arising from customer-driven equity derivative transactions lawfully entered into by the bank.
These conditions and restrictions provide that, among other things, a state member bank may acquire an equity security solely for purposes of hedging the bank’s exposure arising from one or more equity derivative transactions entered into by the bank with, and at the request of, an unaffiliated third party.
An “equity derivative transaction” is a contract that provides for the bank to pay or receive an amount that is based, at least in part, on the price or total return of an individual equity security, a group of equity securities, or an index of equity securities.

In this situation, the carrying value of the host contract and the fair value of the embedded derivative on the report date may be combined and presented together on the balance sheet in the asset or liability category appropriate to the host contract.
As for the separate freestanding derivative contracts the bank enters into to manage its market risk, these derivatives must be carried on the balance sheet as assets or liabilities at fair value and "marked to market" at least quarterly with changes in their fair value recognized in earnings.
The fair value of the freestanding derivatives should not be netted against the fair value of the embedded equity derivatives for Call Report balance sheet purposes because these two derivatives have different counterparties.

Derivative contracts not explicitly covered by any of the columns of the conversion factor matrix are to be treated as "other commodities."
To avoid double counting such exposures in the assessment of capital adequacy and, perhaps, assigning inappropriate risk weights, counterparty credit exposures arising from the types of instruments covered by these guidelines may need to be excluded from balance sheet assets in calculating a bank's risk-based capital ratio.
However, voting common stockholders' equity capital generally will be expected to be the dominant form of Tier 1 capital and banks should avoid undue reliance on other Tier 1 capital elements.

In determining the current credit exposure for multiple derivative contracts executed with a single counterparty, a bank may net derivative contracts subject to a qualifying bilateral netting contract by offsetting positive and negative mark-to-market values, provided that: (1) The qualifying bilateral netting contract is in writing.
Once the credit equivalent amount for a derivative contract, or a group of derivative contracts subject to a qualifying bilateral netting contract, has been determined, that amount is assigned to the risk category appropriate to the counterparty, or, if relevant, the guarantor or the nature of any collateral.
For derivative contracts that are subject to a qualifying bilateral netting contract, the current exposure is, generally, the net sum of the positive and negative mark-to-market values of the contracts included in the netting contract (or zero if the net sum of the mark-to-market values is zero or negative).

As in the case of the OCC’s decision to allow national banks to hold equities as part of their equity derivatives business, it appears that at least two of these decisions were made in secret, with dissent from key OCC staff, and in order to obtain regulatory advantage over the Federal Reserve.
Accordingly, I would request that the GAO examine the basis for the OCC’s decision to permit national banks to purchase equity securities to hedge their equity derivative transactions and give the Committee a legal opinion as to whether this activity is permissible under existing law.
