With the introduction of the new accounting standard, IFRS 13, the requirement to calculate complex variables, such as CVA and DVA has renewed emphasis. IFRS 13 has significant implications for all entities, including corporates and those in the financial services sector that hold derivatives, which are measured at fair value. CVA and DVA also result in additional challenges when performing hedge effectiveness testing under IAS 39.  This whitepaper examines these challenges and also the different approached for testing hedge effectiveness.

According to IFRS 13, model-based fair value measurements have to take into account all risk factors that market participants would consider, including credit risk. In order to reflect the credit risk of the counterparty in an OTC-derivative transaction, an adjustment of its valuation has to be made. Therefore, depending on the type of derivative, not only does the market value of the counterparty’s credit risk (CVA) need to be taken into account, but also the company’s own credit risk (debit valuation adjustment - DVA) has to be considered in order to calculate the correct fair value. This whitepaper explores the different Fair Value Adjustments and valuation techniques under IFRS 13.
