Why You Should Attend

The Evolution of XVA, Margin, and Derivative Pricing and Risk Management

To ensure we meet your expectations and maximise your return on training investment, we favour a classroom/workshop style set up for the delivery of our courses. Please note we have therefore limited number of spaces available and these will be assigned on a first come, first accepted basis. We recommend early booking to avoid disappointment.


‘KVA and the price of capital is the latest concern of the XVA desk’

How will you benefit?

With most banks now familiar with CVA and coming to grips with FVA, some firms have started turning their attention more fully to the impacts that capital and fluctuations in RWAs are having on the pricing of trades throughout their respective life-cycles. This course offers an introduction to the concept of KVA with a focus on how it should be incorporated within the business of the broader XVA desk.

Pre-course questionnaire:

A detailed questionnaire will be sent to all course participants to establish exactly where the group training needs lie. The completed forms will be analysed by the course leader/trainer and followed by telephone if further clarification is required. As a result we can guarantee that the course is pitched at exactly the right level and that the issues that you regard as relevant are addressed. The course material will reflect these issues and will enable you to digest the subject matter after the event in your own time.
