A note on a PDE approach to option pricing under xVA

  title={A note on a PDE approach to option pricing under xVA},
  author={Falko Baustian and Martin Fencl and Jan Posp{\'i}sil and Vladim{\'i}r Sv{\'i}gler},
In this paper we study partial differential equations (PDEs) that can be used to model value adjustments. Different value adjustments denoted generally as xVA are nowadays added to the risk-free financial derivative values and the PDE approach allows their easy incorporation. The aim of this paper is to show how to solve the PDE analytically in the Black-Scholes setting to get new semi-closed formulas that we compare to the widely used Monte-Carlo simulations and to the numerical solutions of…

Monotone methods in counterparty risk models with nonlinear Black–Scholes-type equations
A nonlinear Black–Scholes-type equation is studied within counterparty risk models. The classical hypothesis on the uniform Lipschitz-continuity of the nonlinear reaction function allows for an


Funding Costs, Funding Strategies
The economic value of derivatives depends on the funding costs encountered by the issuer. In this paper we derive general relations between the costs of running specific funding strategies while the

Accelerating CVA and CVA Sensitivities Using Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods
Randomization of Sobol' sequences, a technique shown to increase the convergence rate of QMC on a particular class of integrands, is found to be most effective on test cases with small numbers of dimensions.

Unifying pricing formula for several stochastic volatility models with jumps
In this paper, we introduce a unifying approach to option pricing under continuous-time stochastic volatility models with jumps. For European style options, a new semi-closed pricing formula is
Partial Differential Equation Representations of Derivatives with Bilateral Counterparty Risk and Funding Costs
We derive a partial differential equation (PDE) representation for the value of financial derivatives with bilateral counterparty risk and funding costs. The model is very general in that the funding
Swap Rates and Credit Quality
This article presents a model for valuing claims subject to default by both contracting parties, such as swaps and forwards. With counterparties of different default risk, the promised cash flows of
Stock Price Distributions with Stochastic Volatility: An Analytic Approach
We study the stock price distributions that arise when prices follow a diffusion process with a stochastically varying volatility parameter. We use analytic techniques to derive an explicit
