Goldman Sachs cuts CVA capital 39% in 2018

Goldman Sachs' credit valuation adjustment (CVA) capital requirement dropped by $1.2 billion – more than one-third – to $2 billion over the course of 2018. The dealer made more than half of these savings, $674 million, in the final quarter.   

This drop was far in excess of the aggregate cut in CVA capital reported by all eight US global systemically important banks (G-Sibs).

Total CVA capital across this group fell 13% to $14 billion year-on-year, to reach its lowest level since end-2015
