A New Model for Default Correlation

In the talk we present a new, intuitive but mathematically powerful model of dependent defaults and derives a general framework for pricing products whose values depend on credit correlation between the counterparty and the reference entity. The dependence framework is a natural extension of the Gaussian factor approach, which can be applied in the context of reduced form credit risk models, allowing i.a. for stochastic hazard and recovery rates. The prices of plain vanilla credit default swaps and default swaptions are derived as particular examples costs.

This panel will focus on the practical aspects of CVA through it's ever changing complex evolution. Now the compliance deadline has passed we will examine the impact of regulatory changes and capital charges on running a CVA desk. The latest CVA modelling techniques will be discussed, as well as a more holistic view of the whole process rather than focusing on the math models only. Discussions will also include reviewing how to manage, calculate & price CVA across portfolios and the balance sheet. Furthermore, we explore the need for CVA computational, acceleration & speed ups and the much debated evolution of funding value adjustments. 

  • Discussing the latest strategies for XVA management, pricing adjustments & desk organization
  • How are CVA desks changing in regards to FVA, and should FVA & CVA be managed on the same desk? Multiple or Central CVA desks?
  • Can we reconcile the different views on FVA computation
  • What does the industry need to agree on and can these differences be resolved?
  • Explore how to manage, calculate & price CVA across portfolios and the balance sheet.
  • Reviewing CVA across portfolios: A more holistic view.
  • What are the latest strategies on trading techniques?
  • How will capital charges and the impact of regulatory changes influence the business and what is the current role of the Clearing Houses?
