1 Capital Markets Notes n. 1 - January 2002 INVESTMENT GRADE FINANCIAL CORPORATE BONDS: TERM STRUCTURE ESTIMATION AND RELATIVE VALUE Enrico Bernini Dean Fantazzini
3 IntesaBci 1 INTRODUCTION The corporate bond market in the euro area is constantly increasing as a proportion of the international debt market. The main industry represented in the corporate debt market is still financial services with a net issued amount of almost EUR 140bln in Apart from the increasing number of financial bonds issued by many institutions like other non financial firms the development in the liquidity of these securities as actively traded bonds in secondary markets is also remarkable. Because of this, the issue of pricing has become relevant for traded corporate debt. For this purpose it is essential to be able to calculate a fair value that can be compared to the spot market price of a corporate bond. That is, to be able to calculate a fair curve that can be compared to the spot market prices of a set of corporate bonds of the same credit class but with different times to maturity The aim of this paper is twofold. On one hand we estimate a fair credit spread curve for every investment grade class of financial corporate bonds listed in the euro area. On the other hand we provide a relative value framework: a rich-cheap analysis tool that allows us to discern if a listed corporate bond presents a premium instead of a discount or a fair price. In addition, we are interested in assessing the critical factors an analyst has to consider in order to read, interpret and correctly evaluate the results of this model. The paper is composed as follows. In section 2 we shall discuss the estimation methodology we apply to obtain corporate spread fair curves. In section 3 we present the relative values of corporate bonds for every investment grade class in the euro area. Section 4 states the conclusions we have reached. THE ESTIMATION OF TERM STRUCTURES The term structure estimation is the starting point of what is often called rich-cheap analysis namely the relative valuation of an asset with respect to a comparable fair value. The object of the term structure estimation is to establish the discount factor function, which provides a reliable zero-coupon rate for any given maturity of a bond. We shall consider several term structures, one for each investment grade corporate rating class, plus the government curve. The last one provides a basis to which the corporate rates are compared. 2 The German government bond (i.e. Bund) are assumed to be the risk-free rate securities 1 Source: IntesaBci elaborations on CapitalData Bondware data. 2 On this point it is important to state how much delicate is this necessary assumpion. Referring to a government curve we ask for a credit spread no biasing condition. Most of benchmarks in the government bond market are rich. The direct effect would be to produce higher corporate spread levels, ceteris paribus. As a consequence we select government bonds that may be either benchmark for their maturity or not, in order to obtain a reliable curve for our corporate spread evalutation purposes.
4 2 IntesaBci for the whole euro area financial market. The zero curve for these securities is estimated by third order basis spline functions (i.e. 3 rd Order B-splines). The sample The selection criteria In order to be representative as a sample, it is a strict requirement that the issues under consideration are liquid. Considering that not all of them are listed on a debt market in Europe it is essential to define a selection criterium to identify the most liquid corporate bonds. For each credit class the bonds are selected according to the following set of criteria: i) age: namely, how much time has passed from the date of issue; ii) bid-ask spread: the higher the uncertainty on its fair price, the higher its bid-ask spread; iii) amount issued: the greater the issued debt amount on the primary market, the greater should be its active trading on the secondary market, whatever that market is (i.e. over-thecounter or a listed stock exchange). This therefore acts as a reasonable and effective proxy of its liquidity. In particular: the term to maturity is never less than a year and the age is never less than three years; no bid-ask spread constraints are applied to the selection; 500bln euro is the minimum amount required for Standard&Poor s AAA and AA credit ratings, while a reduced size of 100bln euro for A and BBB. This is in order to collect a sufficient and effective number of issues for each credit class. For the last two classes an exception is made: these samples also consider European bonds issued in euros in Great Britain. 3 These filter conditions together eliminate most of the illiquid issues on the euro area financial corporate bond market, as an effective requirement to obtain a robust and significant estimation for every credit spread curve we obtain. The sample definition The whole investment grade bond sample is composed of the four main traditional rating classes on issues, reported here per credit class referring to their Standard&Poor s Credit Ratings. 4 3 E.g. Imperial Tobacco Finance, UK domicile. 4 S&P Rating Services and Moody s Investors Service: AAA-Aaa, AA-Aa, A-A and BBB-Baa.
5 IntesaBci 3 When an S&P rating was not available on any considered issues the Moody s Investor s Service ratings have been used to allocate the bond into its homogeneous credit class. In order to raise a sufficient number of corporate bonds for each class, single credit subclasses are considered together. This allows us to obtain a consistent and reliable estimation of the zero curve and relative value results. 5 The bonds considered in the analysis belong to the Banking or Financial Services sectors, as classified by Reuters3000 Fixed Income. Our other sources of data were Bloomberg Corporate 6, JPMorgan Bond Indices and Merrill Lynch EMU Financial Index. Every bond in our sample is listed by Reuters Composite, which has provided listing and homogeneity of data for all the securities considered. A complete list of the collected securities is in Appendix 1 The Sample Securities. 7 The sample of bonds for each credit class also includes four Euribor contracts with maturities of 1, 3, 6 and 12 months in order to provide regularity to the zero curve we obtain in the time-to-maturity domain. This is due to the low liquidity level of corporate bonds with time-to-maturity of less than one year. 8 The presence of these securities allows us to greatly improve the robustness and signficance of estimated spline coefficients, reducing their statistical standard errors. The 55 AAA corporate bonds collected in the sample span a time period of over twelve years, from Osterreicheische Postparka 5 1 / 4 % coupon with maturity at 11 November 2002 to BNG 4 1 / 2 % coupon, with maturity at 10 March The 30 AA corporate bonds collected in the sample also span a time period of over twelve years, from Bayerische Hypo 5 7 / 8 % coupon with maturity at 10 October 2002 to Generali Finance 4 3 / 4 % 12 May The 41 A corporate bonds collected in the sample cover a period of over fourteen years, from Reiffeiesen Zentralbank 4 7 / 8 % 27 March 2003 to Fortis Lux Finance 6 3 / 8 % coupon, with maturity at 16 February The 33 BBB corporate bonds collected in the sample cover a time period of almost ten years, from Credit Lyonnais 8 3 / 4 % 6 November 2002 to BCP Finance Bank Ltd 6 1 / 4 % 29 March This investment grade class has a shorter time-to-maturity due to the increased credit risk associated with these issues. As a result of this it has been difficult to find bonds in this credit class with a longer maturity. 5 As a consequence, the ten individual sub-classes are not analysed in this work. But with the growing of the corporate bond market in the euro area, specific term structure estimation will early become a reality and interesting results are already available by the authors. 6 On Bloomberg: MER Go, then Corporate Go to start with. 7 Other kinds of data such as Liquidation Status and Redemption, relevant in rich-cheap analysis have been collected for further analysis. A part from sub-class splitting, other researches have to be addressed towords other features of corporate and financial bonds such as Liquidation Status and Redemption, on which a fair price might be conditional to. 8 Such illiquidity would produce a strong short term swing in the curve. For details on this point, cf. Bernini E. and Fantazzini D., 2001, Stima di Strutture a Termine: il Caso dei Corporate Spread Finanziari, Collana Ricerche 01/01 IntesaBci, September (p.39-40).
6 4 IntesaBci The data presented in this paper were last updated on 30 November Estimation of zero curves Since the credit spread curves usually present a more regular shape in relation to the bond yield-to-maturity curve, we have reduced the order of the used splines by a lower grade of their degree of freedom. As a result, a quadratic spline (rather than a cubic one) has been chosen to estimate the spread zero curve. As quadratic spline functions require fewer nodes this has improved the estimation. 9 The advantage of this approach is that it has reduced the root mean squared errors, i.e. a better estimation of the sample data. The estimated zero curve functions we obtain are regular and they are showed in figure 1.

The root mean squared error (RMSE) between theoretical and market yield-to-maturity is a measure that gauges the ability of the proposed model to accomodate any single sample of data. The same measure of dispersion has been considered with regard to prices. A AA AAA Table 1 summarises the root mean squared error we obtained for each credit class, confirming (as expected) monotony in its values: the higher the credit stance, the lower the 9 Cf.

Similarly, we define the fair yield-to-maturity as that corresponding to the fair price for a given maturity. A corporate bond is rich if its yield to maturity is lower than the fair yield-tomaturity, and cheap otherwise. The corporate premium or discount is defined by the difference π = [(ytm fair ) (ytm real)] where, ytm fair = ytm real = yield to maturity correspondent to the estimated fair price yield to maturity that corresponds to the real market price such that: if π is positive (i.e. ytm fair > ytm real) the corporate is rich because of its lower yield to maturity with respect to its fair one. This corresponds to the simple fact that the corporate bond price is higher than the estimated fair price. Similarly, if π is negative (i.e. ytm fair < ytm real) the corporate is cheap on the basis of the same reasoning. This convention allows us to recognise positive premia and negative discount factors π, and therefore whether a considered security is rich or cheap.

Benchmark corporate bonds are usually rich in price, due to their liquidity premium. Market prices tend to be higher than their fair prices over time: their difference is almost always positive and it tends to fluctuate around a positive constant delta defined as the average of
9 IntesaBci 7 these differences over a period in time. New issued corporate bonds tend to be rich when they are issued, because of their large tradable outstanding, becoming cheap after varying periods of time. These and other features, such as liquidation status and redemption for example, constitute relevant variables to be considered in relative value analysis. This is the analysis that we suggest could be adopted by traders and practitioners in this field. CONCLUSIONS In this paper we have estimated the term structure of government, corporate and credit spreads and explained how it is possibile to define relative values for euro investment grade financial corporate bonds, with respect to the relevant yield curve. For this purpose two factors were important: the yield curve estimation methodology we have employed and the sample we have defined for this purpose. On one hand we considered the B-spline methodology to achieve reliable term structures, i.e. likelihood, smooth and regular curves. On the other hand we have defined five distinct and independent sets of data as the bond sample dataset: one for government debt and one for each investment grade credit rating class. With respect to the considered methodology, the introduction of a multi-curve model, based on the joint estimation of term structures, has allowed us to make a parsimonious estimation of the curves due to a larger set of available data (as opposed to a single-curve estimation alternative). Regarding the whole sample of data we built an updated dataset composed of the four main investment grade corporate bonds plus a euro area government bond set. This was because of their liquidity and because they are commonly used for credit spread estimation. Robust and stable results on curve estimations were achieved for every single investment grade class in this work. The estimation of zero-coupon rate curves has allowed us to evaluate the corporate bond fair prices, making rich-cheap analysis feasibile. For every rating class curve it was possible to evaluate the relative price of a bond with respect to its fair curve, and also to define a global dispersion property of a set of bonds with the same credit rating. This means that a credit spread curve provides an ideal model that can effectively explain collective bond prices dynamic behaviour over time. Features like liquidation status, redemption, debt seniority and prices dynamic behaviour, constitute new relevant variables to be considered in further relative value researches.
