  author={Chaofan Sun and Ken Seng Tan and Wei Wei},

The replacement closeout convention has drawn more and more attention since the 2008 financial crisis. Compared with the conventional risk-free closeout, the replacement closeout convention incorporates the creditworthiness of the counterparty and thus providing a more accurate estimate of the Mark-to-market value of a financial claim. In contrast to the risk-free closeout, the replacement closeout renders a nonlinear valuation system, which constitutes the major difficulty in the valuation of…

Nonlinearity Valuation Adjustment
We develop a consistent, arbitrage-free framework for valuing derivative trades with collateral, counterparty credit risk, and funding costs. Credit, debit, liquidity, and funding valuation
Credit Risk: Modeling, Valuation And Hedging
The main objective of Credit Risk: Modeling, Valuation and Hedging is to present a comprehensive survey of the past developments in the area of credit risk research, as well as to put forth the most
Counterparty risk pricing: impact of closeout and first-to-default times
In the absence of a universally accepted procedure for the credit valuation adjustment (CVA) calculation, we compare a number of different bilateral counterparty valuation adjustment (BVA) formulas.
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
Funding Valuation Adjustment: A Consistent Framework Including CVA, DVA, Collateral, Netting Rules and Re-Hypothecation
In this paper we describe how to include funding and margining costs into a risk-neutral pricing framework for counterparty credit risk. We consider realistic settings and we include in our models
Counterparty Risk for Credit Default Swaps: Impact of Spread Volatility and Default Correlation
We consider counterparty risk for Credit Default Swaps (CDS) in presence of correlation between default of the counterparty and default of the CDS reference credit. Our approach is innovative in
Arbitrage‐free XVA
We develop a framework for computing the total valuation adjustment (XVA) of a European claim accounting for funding costs, counterparty credit risk, and collateralization. Based on no‐arbitrage
Pricing Derivatives with Counterparty Risk and Collateralization: A Fixed Point Approach
A fixed point approach is proposed to analyze the mark-to-market contract value with counterparty risk provision, and it is shown that it is a unique bounded and continuous fixed point via contraction mapping, which leads to an accurate iterative numerical scheme for valuation.
We develop an arbitrage‐free valuation framework for bilateral counterparty risk, where collateral is included with possible rehypothecation. We show that the adjustment is given by the sum of two
