Counterparty Credit Risk and Credit Value Adjustment:A Continuing Challenge for Global Financial Markets Jon Gregory
Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, grade: 1,7, University of Hohenheim (Financial Management), course: Master seminary Counterparty credit risk, language: English, abstract: The current interest in the topic of counterparty credit risk (CCR) and its exposure measurement began with the upcoming of the financial crisis, or to be more precise the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers. Before then, the default of a counterparty of that size was out of the realm of possibility. The default of a counterparty that formerly was assumed as too big to fail prompted the need for a reconsideration of credit risk (Moser 2014, p. 429). Among the scope of topics associated with CCR, the determination of the exposure amount is seemingly trivial, but turns out to be highly complex due to the impact of risk mitigants, and the uncertainty involved. Canabarro and Duffie define counterparty exposure as the larger of zero and the market value of the portfolio of derivative positions with a counterparty that would be lost if the counterparty defaults and there is zero recovery. If the contract value is positive for the bank at the point of the counterparties default, the banks net loss equals the contracts market value. If the contract value is negative, the bank does not gain anything but has a net loss of zero. From a regulatory point of view the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) aims to identify the exposure at default (EAD) which is up stake in the case of a counterpartys default, which then has to be backed due to capital requirements. In this main section of the paper an indepth analysis on the characteristics of credit risk exposure and its quantification will be conducted. At first, the used metrics will be outlined, their characteristics described, and the risk mitigants netting and collateral considered. Last, it will be analyzed for which application the presented measures are suitable and whether they shall be calculated by riskneutral or historical data.

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2018 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 10, , language: English, abstract: This article presents a new model for valuing a credit default swap (CDS) contract that is affected by multiple credit risks of the buyer, seller and reference entity. We show that default dependency has a significant impact on asset pricing. In fact, correlated default risk is one of the most pervasive threats in financial markets. We also show that a fully collateralized CDS is not equivalent to a risk-free one. In other words, full collateralization cannot eliminate counterparty risk completely in the CDS market.
