Making Strides in Counterparty Credit Risk

Financial institutions are making substantial progress in improving their Counterparty Credit Risk management practices. This is in response to changes in accounting rules and new prudential and market regulations, which have tightened substantially following the financial crisis. Collectively, these changes are having a deep impact on the market and the way firms price and manage the risk associated with derivatives.
