  • Modern price models for derivatives: xVA Pricing (CVA, DVA, FVA, KVA, MVA & ColVA)
  • Restructuring of CSA contracts
  • Model selection and validation
  • Bilateral collateralisation
  • The standardised method to measure counterparty risks with SA-CCR
  • CVA Risk Capital Charge
  • Fundamental review of the trading book
  • The interest risk in the banking book

Individual analysis supported by the LPA’s own pricing library

Our LPA pricing library (LAPalc) is available for structuring and analysis of your financial instruments.  LPACalc supports you in independent model validations and individual analyses. It is also used for the evaluation approaches listed above.  LPACalc contains extensive market data, but can also be linked with in-house systems and data sources.

For many years now we have been assisting banks, savings and other financial institutions in analysis and adjustment for product structuring (product management), treasury, trade, risk management and risk controlling.  The growing requirements with regard to banking and capital markets regulation make our know-how more valuable than ever.  Let us generate long-term added value jointly by developing comprehensive and bespoke solutions and so minimise the effects of regulatory changes.
