Presented at the Asia Risk Congress | September 2017

This presentation entitled “Efficient MVA by Backward Differentiation” was given by Dr. Alexandre Antonov of Numerix at the Asia Risk Congress in Singapore on September 26th.

The presentation addresses:

  • Initial margin (IM) and its projection to the future; MVA as a future IM interest
  • Complexity of the MVA: one needs the portfolio sensitivities calculation for each scenario and observation date
  • Particular difficulties with structured products: brute force MVA calculation time is unacceptably long
  • Known approximations to the MVA
  • A new efficient method for the exact MVA calculation based on the future differentiation
  • Numerical experiments for a Bermudan Swaption MVA: massive acceleration using the new method with respect to the brute force
