In recent years, accounting regulations and regulatory oversight have mandated that firms measure and manage their CCR exposure. These requirements generate a significant burden as regards data aggregation and the creation of complex measurement models. In addition, a major organisational development has been the creation of 'CVA desks' dedicated to active management of CCR. Further, the financial crisis has ensured that regulatory developments, as well as measurement and management techniques, are constantly evolving in this area. This course moves beyond the identification of counterparty credit risk and focuses on the way it is measured today, while understanding that 'the only constant is change'.
