Why should MVA be important to you?

Efficiently calculate margin valuation adjustment (MVA) to determine the lifetime costs of posting initial margin.


High-performance MVA analytics

The phased introduction of bilateral initial margin (IM) continues to affect institutions of gradually decreasing size, and the need for a centralised MVA calculation solution continues to be felt across the market.

The new rules require the posting of IM for new bilateral OTC derivatives trades. The funding of IM comes at a cost, which will vary over the lifetime of the trade and be calculated on the whole netting set of the counterparty relationship. MVA is the expected cost of funding IM until maturity of the longest trade in the netting set.

With triCalculate, users get accelerated, web-based MVA calculations on the Standard Initial Margin Model (SIMM™).
