Counterparty Credit Risk - A comprehensive overview of counterparty credit risk (CCR) by Gary Dunn

About the training

#understanding of counterparty risk   #practical examples   #understanding different approaches   #understanding of counterparty risk mitigation tools limitations

This course covers all aspects of counterparty credit risk (CCR) in OTC derivatives. A short background on the evolution of the OTC market and the recognition of CCR is followed by detailed discussions on netting, collateral, SIMM, measuring exposure, default probabilities and credit curves, regulatory capital requirements, risk intermediation, and CCPs. CVA, DVA and the other valuation adjustments are also covered along with wrong-way risk. The course is intended particularly for risk managers, audit, and regulators and will include a number of practical exercises and examples designed to make the course interactive. It will also look at how different mitigation techniques may lead to new problems, for example, central clearing, collateralization, and initial margin requirements.
