Abstract

Funding costs and counterparty credit risk adjustments have become increasingly important contributions to the total value of derivatives positions. Based on a recently developed derivatives pricing framework that incorporates these two effects in a unified way, we discuss the relationship of the funding cost adjustment to the balance sheet. We also demonstrate two ways in which the funding cost adjustment can be eliminated, resulting in symmetric derivatives values.
