IFRS 13 webinar: CVA, DVA, FVA and the implications on hedge accounting

Published on: 26 Sep 2014

With the introduction of IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement, more emphasis has been placed on valuation adjustments such as credit valuation adjustment (CVA), debt valuation adjustment (DVA), funding valuation adjustment (FVA), as well as other evolving valuation practises such as overnight index swap (OIS) discounting.

IFRS 13 has significant implications for all firms, including corporates that measure financial assets at fair value. As a result, these changes also impact hedge designation and effectiveness testing. Deloitte, in partnership with Quantifi, presented a webinar on 27 August 2014 which looked at the challenges, risk factors, calculation techniques, and concepts for measuring financial instruments under IFRS 13, as well as the hedge accounting implications.

This webinar covers the following topics:

  • Challenges and implications of measuring financial instruments under IFRS 13
  • Fair value adjustments - CVA, DVA, FVA
  • Impact of valuation adjustments and OIS discounting on hedge accounting
  • Risk factors and requirements for calculating CVA, DVA, and FVA (XVA).
