Asia Risk Congress 2010: CVA ‘less relevant’ for domestic banks


"[CVA will] probably be less relevant for Asian banks operating in this region, than for global banks that are actually market makers for OTC derivatives," said Brian Lo, head of market risk at DBS in Singapore, speaking at the Asia Risk Congress 2010 in Hong Kong on November 16. But Lo believes CVA is important for banks active in the derivatives market. "It is really a question of whether we are pricing in credit risk correctly for OTC derivatives," he said.
