Presented at QuantMinds International | May 2018

This presentation entitled “AD-on-LSMC for MVA and CVA Greeks: Simplifications and Efficiencies ” was given by Andrew McClelland of Numerix at QuantMinds International in Lisbon on May 17th.

The presentation addressed:

  • Pathwise methods for CVA Greeks and future value Greeks for MVA both require differentiation of continuation values over model parameters
  • When using LSMC, algorithmic differentiation can be applied in reverse mode (CVA) and forward mode (MVA) for efficiency
  • Careful inspection of the regression algorithm reveals specific dependencies, namely those of coefficients on contemporaneous states, which vanish as the sample size grows large
  • Ignoring these dependencies dramatically simplifies propagation and yields significant reductions in the computational expense with minimal impact on accuracy
  • A set of illustrative examples involving Bermudan swaptions
