Counterparty Credit Risk

Counterparty credit risk models for exposures for calculating credit value adjustment (CVA)

Counterparty credit risk is that the counterparty to a contract will not live up to its contractual obligations. The Financial Toolbox™ provides functions to compute credit exposures and collateral amounts from mark-to-market OTC contract values and to calculate exposure profiles from credit exposures.
