Managing Complexities of CVA, DVA and FVA
Regulation including Dodd-Frank, Basel lll, MiFID ll and EMIR are increasing the cost of capital and driving the need to more accurately measure the risks and profitability of OTC derivatives. At Quantifi's London seminar, senior practitioners discussed the triad of valuation adjustments (CVA, DVA, FVA) which have to be taken into account when measuring profitability, the developments in model optimisation and the impact of proposed regulation on counterparty risk

A First View on the New CVA Risk Capital Charge

In July 2015, the Basel Committee of Banking Supervision (BCBS) published a consultative paper on credit valuation adjustment (CVA) risk to improve the current regulatory framework. In February 2016, first improvements of this framework have been introduced within the QIS instructions for the QIS based on December 2015 results.

Interest on the topic of Funding Valuation Adjustment (FVA) was renewed, particularly in light of the JPMorgan’s Q4 2013 earnings report, which for the first time included FVA.


CVA, DVA and Bank Earnings

Credit Value Adjustment (CVA) is the amount subtracted from the mark-to-market (MTM) value of derivative positions to account for the expected loss due to counterparty defaults. CVA is easy to understand in the context of a loan – it is the loan principal, minus anticipated recovery, multiplied by the counterparty’s default probability over the term of the loan. For derivatives, the loan amount is the net MTM value of derivative positions with that counterparty.
