XVA has been of great interest—and of equally great concern—to OTC derivatives market participants in recent years due to increasing awareness of the heavy costs, capital requirements, as well as the implementation and management challenges involved. Additionally, practices in trading, risk management, accounting and regulation of OTC derivatives continue to evolve in response to what seems like an ever-changing environment.

On Tuesday, April 23rd Numerix will host an interactive XVA Forum being held at WeWork BKC in Mumbai. Andrew McClelland, PhD, Director of Quantitative Research at Numerix will begin the discussion with an overview of XVA and the related challenges the industry is focused on today.

The presentation will include an examination of XVA Greeks, the role of Algorithmic Differentiation, and how to account for the costs of collateral transformation / liquidity transformation. The modeling of basis spreads and how those are reflected in the cost of capital utilization (KVA) will be discussed, in addition to Initial Margin requirements, ISDA SIMM & clearing house rules, and how the associated costs can be reflected in pricing (Margin Valuation Adjustment - MVA).

A panel of industry leaders will then offer their expert insights and points of view on the following:

  • The different states of maturity and gaps in XVA adoption in India and in Asia
  • The most dominant XVA management challenges facing the Indian market today
  • The long-run benefits of pricing in XVAs now, rather than waiting
  • The workability of optimizing and hedging XVA costs
  • The core factors to consider when setting up an XVA desk
