Joint associations’ response to BCBS consultation on the CVA review
October 5, 2015
On October 1, ISDA responded jointly with other associations (GFMA/IIF) to the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision consultation on the review of the credit valuation adjustment (CVA) framework. In the response, the industry i) welcomes the BCBS decision to revisit the current CVA framework and to incorporate CVA into the revised market risk framework (ie, within the Fundamental Review of the Trading Book); and ii) believes that the proposed framework is a step in the right direction towards achieving the BCBS goals of risk sensitivity and simplicity, subject to certain modifications. The response then provides a number of recommendations that, if considered together, will facilitate the swift and smooth finalization of the CVA framework review.
