GARP Risk Review, July/August 2007

Abstract:     
Michael Pykhtin and Steven Zhu offer a blueprint for modelling credit exposure and pricing counter-party risk. They focus on two main issues: modelling credit exposure and pricing counter-party risk. In the part devoted to credit exposure, we will define credit exposure at contract and counter-party levels, introduce netting and margin agreements as risk management tools for reducing counter-party-level exposure and present a framework for modelling credit exposure. In the part devoted to pricing, we will define credit value adjustment (CVA) as the price of counter-party credit risk and discuss approaches to its calculation.
