Two curves, one price

The financial crisis multiplied the yield curves used to price interest rate derivatives, making traditional no arbitrage pricing no longer valid. By taking into account the basis adjustment bootstrapped from market basis swaps and using a foreign currency analogy, consistent pricing can be achieved.

Both the basis and the quanto adjustments find a simple financial interpretation in terms of counterparty risk.
