Risk management and financial instruments information continued Interest bearing Investments The credit risk associated with interest bearing investments is managed by MACC as follows: ! The setting and review of credit limits as they relate to recognised external credit assessment institutions ratings. ! The setting and review of credit limits as it relates to exposures to individual entities. ! The monitoring of limit usage for both the credit ratings and the individual entities. MACC has a maximum exposure equal to the carrying amount of each financial asset, including derivatives, on the Statement of Financial Position. Units held in unlisted unit trusts Fund managers are selected pursuant to a strategic asset allocation approved by the MACC Commissioner (TIO Board: 2014). Fund managers manage applicable credit risk in accordance with their product disclosure statements. Their approach to credit risk is one of the factors in the selection process and their compliance with their product disclosure statements is confirmed annually. Loans and advances The credit risk associated with TIO Banking business retail financial loan assets including securitised loans were managed by the TIO Board as follows: ! Clearly defined credit policies. ! The established credit policies set out specific requirements for different loan types based on the purpose for which they are made and includes an assessment of a counter partys repayment capacity and security (where applicable). ! The established policies specify the acceptable terms and conditions for all loan types. ! The Credit Policy incorporates Delegated Lending Authorities (DLA) according to different classes of security and the lending officers experience. ! The regular monitoring of compliance with the credit risk policy. The TIO Banking business operations manages all loan arrears on a daily basis. The nature of credit risk varies between business and retail loans and is managed accordingly. With the securitisation program in place over some home loans, TIO has taken out insurance contracts on every loan that has been securitised to cover the risk of borrowers defaulting on their loan repayments. Although credit risk associated with these loans is insured with a third party, there is the residual risk that TIO may not be eligible in some exceptional cases to seek recovery under the policy.
