New Elective Course for Fall 2018 – “Counterparty Credit: Valuation and Adjustments, Capital, and Funding”
I am very excited to announce the new full-semester elective course “Counterparty Credit: Valuation and Adjustments, Capital, and Funding” (MATH-GA 2805.001) that will be taught by Leif Andersen on Wednesdays 7:10pm-9pm, starting in September 2018. There is high demand in the financial industry for quants equipped with the knowledge of modelling counterparty credit. The goal of this course is to systematically and rigorously fill this gap.
Here is the course description:
This class explores technical and regulatory aspects of counterparty credit risk, with an emphasis on model building and computational methods. The first part of the class will provide technical foundation, including the mathematical tools needed to define and compute valuation adjustments such as CVA and DVA. The second part of the class will move from pricing to regulation, with an emphasis on the computational aspects of regulatory credit risk capital under Basel 3. A variety of highly topical subjects will be discussed during the course, including: funding costs, XVA metrics, initial margin, credit risk mitigation, central clearing, and balance sheet management. Students will get to build a realistic computer system for counterparty risk management of collateralized fixed income portfolios, and will be exposed to modern frameworks for interest rate simulation and capital management.
