A pragmatic and unified approach for calculating CVA, PFE and VaR
This presentation will look at an approach for calculating CVA, PFE and Historical Simulation VaR using a consolidated toolbox in terms of risk factor drivers, positions, and underlying statistical assumptions. Implications of using real-world statistics compared to risk-neutral statistics in risk modelling will be touched upon. A brief overview of system design implications when dealing with an exploding number of revaluations will be given.

The Challenge of Unknown Unknowns in Risk Modeling
”There are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns – the ones we don’t know we don’t know.”
