In Oracle Financial Services Asset Liability Management (ALM) 5.5 and lower, the Time Bucket range changes in a Leap Year when the As of Date is not the last day of the month.

For example:

As of Date: 06/28/2011.

In February 2012, the date range changes from:

01/29/2012 to 02/28/2012 (30 Days)
02/29/2012 to 03/27/2012 (27 Days)

Before the leap year, the End Date was always on the 28th. After the leap year, the End Date is always on the 27th:

BucketStart DateEnd Date
6 11/29/2011 12/28/2011
7 12/29/2011 01/28/2012
8 01/29/2012 02/28/2012
9 02/29/2012 03/27/2012
10 03/28/2012 04/27/2012

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Go to Asset Liability Management
