Roundtable Discussion: The 'State of the State' of XVA Front-Office Risk Management

Webinar 6/13 | Numerix leadership, together with XVA consulting expert James Sehgal of Invicta, debated their perspectives on the hot button issues driving XVA adoption today.

For both the sell-side and buy-side, the key to XVA is to understand how the pricing of derivatives costs are being transferred, however, the measurement, management and optimization of XVA is challenging to define and operationalize. Although XVA has been widely discussed over the past five years, the mandate has shifted to no longer only be about revenue generation, but also revenue preservation.

On June 13th, Numerix hosted a live roundtable discussion to debate the hot button issues driving XVA adoption today. Numerix leadership together with XVA consulting expert, James Sehgal of Invicta debated their perspectives on the following topics:

  • The new factors driving XVA adoption today
  • How XVA has transformed
  • Roadblocks to managing and optimizing XVA costs
  • Hedging XVA – is it necessary, or even possible?
  • The XVA desk: essential, or not necessarily?



  • Walk away with a modern take on how and why XVAs are being used today.
  • Be empowered to ask the right questions about how your trading operation is calculating, understanding and using XVAs.
  • Learn why the choice to ignore XVAs is no longer an option.
