Adjustments for the cost of regulatory capital

Portfolio valuation adjustments for derivative portfolios have become increasingly sophisticated over recent years. One of the newest and potentially largest adjustments is for the cost of regulatory capital – so-called KVA.


“The ultimate test of a KVA is whether it genuinely reflects the price at which a willing counterparty would enter into a transaction.”

Colin Martin, KPMG in the UK


We delve deeper into the detail of KVA and why it is more complex than it seems at first glance.

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision recently published proposals on the interaction between IFRS 9 Financial Instruments and the Basel regulatory capital requirements for banks.

This article discusses the proposals and their possible implications.
