1.0 Answer Question 1

Assume an immediate and sustained 1 percent across-the-board rise in interest rates. Based on a review of Exhibit 3, discuss how one would use interest rate-sensitivity gap information to estimate the impact of rising interest rates on the earnings of Norwest Corporation.

Interest sensitivity gap is used to measure how the interest change will affect the asset sensitivity and liability sensitivity.

01) = -$9.90 million

* 3 years to 5 years,

∆NII = ($1,194 million) (0.01) = $11.94 million

Based on the table exhibit 3 given or the calculation above, we noticed that there is “negative” values for the first three periods of Norwest Corporation. However, the following years are showing the “positive” value. When the interest rates rise, it unfortunately will affect the net income of Norwest Corporation. This means that, Norwest Corporation has face interest rate rise for first three periods. In addition, when the interest rate rises, the earning of Norwest Corporation will increase the asset sensitive due to the interest revenue generated by assets will increase more than the cost of borrowed funds. On the other hand, if the interest rates rise, the earning of Norwest Corporation will reduce the liabilities sensitive. Thus, when the interest rate rise, the net interest margin Norwest Corporation will reduce because the rising cost associated with interest sensitive liabilities will exceed the increase in interest revenue. From the above, we can says that the larger the GAP difference, the greater the impact on the earnings of Norwest Corporation.
