Clearing Fund for IRS
On the business day (*1) immediately preceding the last business day of each week, the portion of the amount of loss (risk equivalent under stressed conditions) that may arise under extreme but plausible market conditions (stressed condition) exceeding the amount of Initial Margin (excess risk amount) is calculated with respect to the positions of each IRS Clearing Participant as of 16:00 on such day. The required amount of clearing fund shall be the amount equivalent to the expected loss arising at the time of simultaneous default of two IRS Clearing Participants (including other IRS Clearing Participant in the same corporate group as the relevant Clearing Participant) whose excess risk amounts are the largest and the second largest, prorated according to the Required Initial Margin Amount of each IRS Clearing Participant (after any increase) (if such amount is less than 100 million yen, then the minimum clearing fund requirement shall be100 million yen).(*2)
*1 No calculation will be performed if the number of business days in a week is less than 2.
*2 The total required Clearing Fund for IRS amount contributed by all Clearing Participants was JPY38.8B (as of 30, December, 2016)

Stress Scenarios to be Used for Calculation
Stress scenarios are set by using Principal Component Analysis and historical scenarios. Expected amount of losses that may arise on the part of each Clearing Participant will be calculated with respect to these stress scenarios (the risk equivalent under stressed conditions).
