The client wanted to gain a better understanding of the mechanics of CVA pricing, especially on transactions involving multiple currencies. The firm’s widening credit spread dramatically increased CVA charges levied by dealers. Therefore the client wanted more transparency and a second opinion on these CVA charges.
The client requested Quantifi to calculate CVA charges on 880 derivative transactions. Quantifi generated a matrix of CVA prices, expressed as an upfront charge and basis points in a matter of days, in time for the client’s internal presentation to senior management. Quantifi also analysed the differences between its results and the dealer quotes, helping the client to better understand CVA pricing dynamics. The client is now able to challenge counterparties on CVA pricing as well as more efficiently manage credit capital.
