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 Wednesday, April 17th Numerix will host an interactive XVA Forum being held at the PARKROYAL on Pickering in Singapore. Andrew McClelland, PhD, Director of Quantitative Research at Numerix will provide an overview of XVA and the related challenges the industry is focused on today. Dr. McClelland’s presentation will include an examination of:

  • XVA Greeks
  • The role of Algorithmic Differentiation
  • The costs of collateral transformation / liquidity transformation
  • The modeling of basis spreads
  • The cost of capital utilization (KVA)

Dr. McClelland will also discuss Initial Margin requirements, ISDA SIMM & clearing house rules, and how the associated costs are reflected in pricing (Margin Valuation Adjustment - MVA).

The presentation will be followed with open floor Q&A.
