Quantitative Methodologies for Derivative Pricing and Valuation

Derivative valuation and pricing is essential for firms that are involved in trading. The valuation process needs to be effective to ensure that potential risks are incorporated into pricing analysis. Many institutions now have control over CVA and DVA however, the increased pressure on these areas, and the introduction of further changes to the XVA desk from Basel III, mean the processes need to be evaluated to ensure institutions cover all areas effectively and ensure they price derivatives efficiently and risk free.

This GFMI conference will discuss the key methodologies to calculate value adjustments. Delegates will understand whether the current strategies for calculating CVA and DVA remain effective or if institutions need to change them in light of new regulations. Institutions will understand the latest calculations, such as FVA and KVA, and ensure they adapt their infrastructure to best manage XVA and correctly price their derivatives.

Key Topics

  • Discuss the current best practices in managing CVA and DVA
  • Understand the use of FVA and strategies to incorporate new KVA calculations
  • Evaluate the latest regulatory changes to affect XVA
  • Evolve your infrastructure to best manage XVA and increase the efficiency of derivative pricing
  • Incorporate the latest technology to streamline your derivative pricing
