Resource description

The purpose of the paper is to discuss four pitfalls commonly found in the application of RAROC to loan management. These are, respectively, the use of a single hurdle rate, the timing of profit recognition, the time horizon for equity allocation, and the under-identified benefits of portfolio diversification. Without explicit recognition of these pitfalls by senior bank management, the application of RAROC to risk-adjusted performance measurement can lead to misleading information
