We are delighted to host a half-day hybrid event on the XVA Debate which will discuss the recent accounting regulations (driven by the new regulatory environment post-2008). 

Valuation adjustment is the umbrella name for adjustments made to the fair value of a derivatives contract to take into account funding, credit risk and regulatory capital costs. Dealers typically incorporate the costs associated with XVAs into the price of a new trade.

Despite the importance of XVAs, both the theory of XVAs and our understanding of how they impact dealers’ balance sheets, asset liquidity and capital markets remain in their infancy.

This policy roundtable is an opportunity for academics, policy experts and the industry to meet and discuss recent developments in this area. This hybrid event is free to attend.
