Bazel II. development

Development of our mass appraisal model using factor analysis is in progress. The well documented methodology enables us to appraise the value and validity of real estate collaterals with more accuracy. By using this method, we can determine the actual value of real estates even if they are located in areas where very few transactions occur thus real prices are scarce.

Our database covering the whole country and the methodological development of FHB Index make FHB able to provide help to the banking sector to comply with collateral re-valuation regulations under Basel II [Government Decree No 196/2007 on the Management of Credit Risk and the Calculation of Credit Risk Capital Requirement]. The procedure – which conforms to international standards and can also be supported by documented methodology if required by authorities – is highly useful: based on the modern, internal valuation methodology capital requirement of credit risk can be reduced substantially, thus excess capital can be freed.
