Valuation Adjustments for Improved Risk Management


The project aims to address significant challenges arising from the mathematical modelling, numerical computation and risk management, in the form of valuation adjustments, of financial contracts. Valuation adjustments represent a major focus of the on-going regulatory reform related to the recent global financial crisis. X-Value Adjustment (XVA) refers generally to these different valuation adjustments. The purpose of XVA is two-fold: To hedge possible losses due to a counterparty default event, and to determine the amount of capital required by the institution under the new regulations. The "X" in XVA can be many letters, as institutions have to deal with CVA (credit value adjustment), FVA (funding value adjustment), KVA (capital value adjustment), MVA (margin value adjustment), etc. This is reflected in the EID's title. As these adjustments require deep understanding in terms of the mathematical modelling and efficient computation, we will work at the forefront and consider huge financial portfolios and different market scenarios, including extreme cases.
