The interest rate derivative markets are undergoing a profound change, evolving from a single-curve pricing approach to a multi-curve approach. The swap markets have effectively already moved to a dual-curve approach, with many market participants seeing clear evidence of collateral discounting in market prices. And one of the largest participants, the London Clearing House, uses OIS discounting for pricing over $218 trillion in notional of its interest rate swap portfolio.

But many market practitioners are experiencing challenges in moving to the new multi-curve approach, as they come to realize that they must completely rethink their pricing and valuation approaches from the ground up.

On June 8, 2012, Anna Barbashova of Numerix examined the impact of OIS discounting on valuation approaches, and how valuation best practices have changed in the new multi-curve framework.

Ms. Barbashova reviewed:

  • Curve construction practices in different jurisdictions in a multi-curve framework

    • OIS discounting curve construction in USD and EUR markets

    • Construction of projection curves

    • Construction of basis curves

  • Cross currency considerations

    • Cross currency curve construction

    • Cross currency swap pricing

  • Pricing of non-linear interest rate structures

    • Swaptions and swaption volatility surfaces

    • Caps and floors and their volatility surfaces
