Why You Should Attend

Advanced XVA Methodology: Practical Resource Optimisation

How will you benefit?

The global evolution of derivative pricing in the past few years has completely transformed how banks carry out valuation. What started with CVA now brings in DVA, FVA, and future challenges such as KVA and MVA. These changes have an impact across multiple departments and jurisdictions, bringing treasury and collateral management into contact with trading desks and risk managers. Implementing these changes and optimising these new operations means that banks are now starting to talk about the ‘XVA desk’ – a model beyond the siloed approach where CVA, DVA, collateral management, FVA, and RWA optimization can be carried out in an efficient and unified context. Whilst it is a notoriously tricky topic, banks need to get to grips with these topics, and going on from there learn to report and practically control the risks arising from these complex but inter-related issues, with special reference to fast/gapping market movements and stressed markets.
