Why You Should Attend

7th Annual Practical KVA and CVA Forum

This event will demonstrate the latest best practice is in terms of combining CVA and KVA to give a better idea of how to price in credit risk and capital for derivative trades. This event will also show the developments in CVA desks organisation, so that banks can avoid onerous capital costs. There are no other events with this precise focus.

Once the hottest topic in the financial sector, CVA (Credit Valuation Adjustment) is now much better understood by banks across Europe. Banks have now set up these desks and know how they would like them to run within their businesses. The major change this year, however, is that banks are increasingly focusing on the cost of capital that their derivative desks are generating. This is especially relevant due to the capital constraints that many European banks have displayed in recent years. As such firms are now actively discussing KVA (Capital Valuation Adjustment) as a potential solution.
