Abstract

A recent paper by Professors Hull and White argues that the Funding Value Adjustment is not a cost for the derivative desks. They suggest that the correct discounting rate is always the risk-free rate, thus excluding any possible accounting for the actual funding rate paid by the bank. Their main statements and an in depth analysis on each one are shown in what follows, reaching an opposite result.

Keywords: FVA, DVA, CVA, funding
