Federal Intermediate Credit Banks (FICBs) provide short and intermediate term credit to agricultural producers. The asset/liability management technique used to eliminate interest rate risk exposure at the institutions consists of variable rate loan pricing;The asset and liability activities of an individual bank are modeled using portfolio theory and the technique of quadratic programming. A series of efficient frontiers is generated indicating the risk minimizing combination of asset and liability activities;The issue of interest rate risk management is also examined with a duration model measuring the pattern of interest rate changes between the asset and liability side of the balance sheet. Asset and liability durations are calculated and the duration gap reviewed.
