The way monoline insurers estimate the FAS 157 credit value adjustments (CVA) on their ABS CDO insurance portfolios vastly overstates the benefits. We propose a simple method that is more accurate, especially when the counterparty default risk is high. The counterparty default recovery rate is also a critical input.
