Información importante


This course explains and describes the valuation adjustments in derivatives pricing in relation to counterparty risk, collateral, funding, and capital. The ideas are built up sequentially and workshops are used to develop the key ideas including modeling, legal aspects, portfolio effects and the resulting calculation of CVA, DVA, FVA, ColVA, KVA, and MVA.

Particular attention is paid to current market practice (analyzed by survey results), the impact of regulation (e.g. Basel III) and accounting standards (IFRS 13). Future changes such as mandatory clearing and bilateral margining requirements are also covered. Participants will be able to take away all worked examples and additional exercises and models implemented using Excel functions and macros.

This course is also available remotely via LFS Live.

Lo mejor It is a great course as the teacher makes Xva accessible although the topic is quite complex. I came out with a good overview on the topic çhistory, economic relevance and development.

A mejorar Nothing.
