ANNEX 1

Terms of Reference

REVIEW OF THE FINANCIAL AND RISK POLICIES OF THE BANK

  1. BACKGROUND :

1.1    The African Development Bank (ADB) is a regional multilateral development finance institution established in 1963 with a mandate to further the economic development and social progress of African Countries, individually and collectively. It has 54 regional member countries and 26 non-regional shareholders from Asia, Europe and the Americas. It cooperates with a large network of international development partners.

1.2    The stated Vision of the ADB is to be the leading development finance institution in Africa, dedicated to assisting African Regional Member Countries in their poverty reduction efforts. Client Focus, Quality, Teamwork and Best Practices are the four corporate values essential to the realization of the Vision.

1.3    Over the past years, the Bank has positioned itself as the first lender to the African continent and true development partner for Regional Member Countries.

1.4    The 7th General Capital Increase (GCI-VII) was approved by the Bank’s Board of Governors in October 2019, more than doubling the Bank’s capital base to about $208 billion. The Bank is revising its Financial Sustainability Framework to ensure that the approved GCI resources last over the agreed GCI implementation horizon, and to establish a high level of operating efficiency through an effective administrative cost-control mechanism, while ensuring that the Bank’s AAA credit rating is not endangered.

1.5     The financial policies and the financial sustainability framework drive the strategic management of the Bank’s resources and development related activities. Management and the Board of Directors regularly make decisions relating to lending volumes, mix of lending instruments, trade-offs between sovereign and non-sovereign operations, loan pricing, net income distributions and review of the Bank’s capitalization level. Such decisions have the ultimate goal of maximizing the Bank’s development impact in a financially sustainable manner, and are informed, amongst others, by its strategic operational priorities, identified lending opportunities (pipeline of operations) regional member countries’ financing needs, the Bank’s financial position and rating agencies assessment.

1.6     The financial sustainability model therefore integrates into a coherent framework, all the decision elements and underlying financial assumptions that have a bearing on the Bank’s sustainability of capital resources and operating efficiency.

1.7    The major building blocks of the financial sustainability framework includes the Asset and Liability Management policies, internal financial ratio limits and capital adequacy framework of the Bank. The review of these policies and practices will therefore facilitate the development of a robust Financial Sustainability Framework.

  1. SCOPE OF THE SERVICES

2.1    Review the relevance and make recommendations of the following policies :

  • Interest rate risk management (strategy, hedging, benchmark, metrics, etc.) ;
  • Currency risk management (strategy, hedging, benchmark, metrics, etc.) ;
  • Liquidity risk management (strategy, hedging, benchmark, metrics, etc.) ;
  • Counterparty credit risk management (strategy, hedging, benchmark, metrics, etc.).

2.2    Review the Income Model of the Bank and provide recommendations on internal ratios for the Bank’s financial sustainability, Bank’s income generation performance, capital adequacy, efficiency, etc.

2.3    Review the Bank’s Capital Adequacy framework and recommend strengthening where appropriate.

  • Review the existing financial and risk policies of SRP/MBP and propose any relevant recommendations or method to compute the required economic capital to cover the risks associated with the pension and medical plans. The study should cover the potential impact on capital adequacy ;
  • The review should be conducted in the context of LIBOR transition and include an assessment and recommendations related to the impact of LIBOR transition on the Bank’s financial and risk policies.

2.4    Review the relevance of the Bank’s internal financial ratios and limits and how they compare with rating agencies and international regulators such as BASEL.
