To survive and thrive in the post-crisis era of derivatives trading, banks are incorporating new pricing adjustments into derivatives prices to account for counterparty risk and funding costs. These pricing adjustments, such as CVA, FVA and other “XVAs”, allow banks to more accurately capture the true risk, profitability and capital consumption of their derivatives businesses. However, sometimes the XVAs may appear to overlap (such as DVA and FVA) and the pricing adjustments may not be intuitive.
This On-Demand XVA Master Class Virtual Seminar builds on our popular Master Class Series to demystify the XVAs and analyze how these adjustments are handled and in the real world as well as how various XVAs behave under different market conditions and how to approach them consistently.
Presentation explores derivatives FVA from a real-world treasury perspective, how it impacts your balance sheet and how you need to address it.
Presentation reviews risky discounting, outlines the limitations of this approach, and discusses a framework for a consistent approach to XVA Calculation.
