Deloitte and Quantifi Explore the Different Fair Value Adjustments and Valuation Techniques under IFRS 13

Read More

This joint whitepaper explore the challenges, risk factors, calculation techniques, and concepts for measuring financial instruments under IFRS 13. IFRS13 has significant implications for all firms, including corporates that measure financial assets at fair value. With the introduction of IFRS 13, the requirements for calculating complex variables including CVA and DVA remain. 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. read more

Quantifi & EY Seminar Reveals Challenges and Benefits of XVA

Read More

“Given the still-evolving regulatory requirements and the changes in accounting standards, banks are continuing to upgrade the methodologies and operating processes around the fair value adjustments for derivatives collectively described as XVA. Some of the issues faced by banks relate to the observability of both inputs and secondary market prices for OTC derivatives required in order to validate the valuations. This is particularly true of some of the valuation adjustments which are not, as yet, widely reported such as the Funding Valuation Adjustment. In an environment where banks are increasingly capital and liquidity constrained these questions assume even greater importance: banks need to measure returns on businesses in order to determine which are consistently producing the appropriate returns on the financial resources required to support them.” Shankar Mukherjee, Director, EY read more
