The changing landscape of derivatives trading in recent years has led to shrinking margins, greater volumes and higher capital costs associated with derivatives trading. In addition to calculating fair value, banks must now account for what many practitioners are calling ‘the XVAs’ (a term which includes CVA, DVA, FVA and other adjustments) to truly capture the costs of conducting derivatives business. As a result, the question of profitability within derivatives trading is in the spotlight. Understanding and holistically managing trade profitability with a complete understanding of the trade lifecycle is a critical need.

In this research paper, Satyam Kancharla, Numerix Senior Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer, discusses the concept of Trade EVA (Economic Value Added) along with other industry best practices for integrating risk into pre-trade analytics and looking at derivative trade profitability more holistically.

Highlights include:

  • The Changing Landscape of Trade Profitability
  • Examining the Tradeoff between Counterparty Risk and Funding Risk/Costs
  • EVA (Economic Value Added): A Brief Introduction
  • Trade EVA and the Development of a Trade Profitability Framework
  • EVA and the XVA Measures
  • Best Practices for Process Re-engineering and Implementation
  • Best Practices for Visualizing EVA
