The Next Chapter of FRTB: What to Know About FRTB’s New CVA Capital Framework

Now that the Fundamental Review of the Trading Book’s (FRTB) Market Risk framework is finalized, the next piece of the FRTB puzzle to be finalized is the Credit Valuation Adjustment (CVA) framework. Expected to be finished by the end of this year and considered a substantial upgrade to the existing CVA capital regulation, the new FRTB-CVA regulation aligns with the general FRTB approach of accounting for market fluctuations in exposures. This differs from Basel III’s CVA capital calculations, which only justifies fluctuations in credit spreads for counterparties when computing CVA VaR. As such, FRTB-CVA is expected to offset and reverse obstacles from the current Basel III framework.

However, no Quantitative Impact Studies (QIS) have focused specifically on the new FRTB-CVA framework, and the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) has recently removed the option to use an Internal Model Approach (IMA) when calculating CVA capital. So banks are rightfully wondering how exactly the FRTB-CVA framework will impact them – will CVA capital charges increase?

On April 27th featured speaker Franck Rossi FRTB Specialist and Director of Product Management at Numerix, provided a primer on the new FRTB-CVA regulations and discussed how banks will be affected now that IMA-CVA is no longer an option. He covered the current Basel III framework and the issues associated with it, and then examined key issues practitioners should be thinking about as they begin implementing the new FRTB-CVA framework.

Mr. Rossi addressed the following topics:

  • Introduction to XVAs
    • ​Bilateral trading vs Central Counterparty (CCP) clearing
    • ​XVA measures and calculation framework
    • ​How customers are dealing with CVA
  • Basel III Current framework
    • Standardized Approach (SA)
    • Internal Model Method (IMM)
    • Issues
  • FRTB Market Risk and now FRTB-CVA
    • Indicative timeline

      • Basic Approach (BA-CVA)
      • FRTB-CVA
    • ​BA-CVA calculations
    • FRTB-CVA
      • Regulatory CVA
      • SA-CVA
