CVA/DVA Pricing with F3
While having the ability to calculate Credit Value Adjustment (CVA) or Debt Value Adjustment (DVA) on your portfolio is important, it can be quite difficult to achieve. However, with FINCAD's solution, you can calculate CVA (or DVA) on any trade or netting set.
F3's innovative approach to CVA pricing treats it as a specific calculation application, in principle no different from pricing complex derivatives. This allows CVA to be calculated using the same models and generic Monte Carlo pricing engine as for any other exotic trade. The generic design can handle all types of financial contracts.
First Order Sensitivities Available - Universal Risk Technology™
By leveraging F3's generic pricing engine to calculate CVA, the benefits of its Universal Risk Technology (URT) can be exploited. This patent-pending technology provides fast first-order sensitivities without using finite difference methods ("bumping"). With this technology, the computational time for the sensitivities depends only very weakly on the number of risk factors being evaluated.
F3 allows you to use unlimited market data and risk factors in its cohesive pricing framework to capture the sensitivities of CVA to all market quotes, parameters, and notionals. These can be used to calculate hedge factors, pre-trade estimates of incremental CVA, and more.
Get the Speed You Need - Faster Calculations
We all know that performance matters and with F3 you get the speed you need to price CVA on a wide range of instruments. F3 leverages software optimization techniques like lazy evaluation and object re-use that will provide fast calculations.
