Abstract

Credit valuation adjustment in Basel III is studied from the perspective of the mathematics involved. A bank covers mark-to-market losses for expected counterparty risk with a CVA capital charge. The CVA is known as credit valuation adjustments. In this paper it will be argued that CVA and conditioned value at risk (CVaR) have a common mathematical ancestor. The question is raised why the Basel committee, from the perspective of CVaR, has selected a specific parameterization. It is argued that a fine-tuned supervision, on the longer run, will be beneficial for counterparties with a better control over their spread.
