Hi David. I have a question. May sound silly, but I want some clarity. Risk Free Value = Risky Value + CVA. As the name indicates, Risk Free value is for assuming Zero risk. Not sure how can it have a risky component. Can you please advice? Thanks.
Hey David,

CVA under Basel III

1.what is different between Regulatory CVA and CVA under accounting and pricing?
I found some literatures that define CVA under accounting as, capital that cover expected losses due to CVA volatility while some say, is the cost of credit risk? which is which?
2. The CVA under Basel III, is being replaced by FRTB-CVA or being complemented?
Hello David,
I would like to thank you for this platform:) I am 19 years old, and in my 2nd year in college. I took financial accounting and corporate finance, and am a math major (I have done calc 3). Is it common for students like me to take the FRM? Cause I love this stuff (I spend upwards of 8 hours daily working through the material) but I'm so, so overwhelmed.... I plan to take the Oct/Nov exams. Any advice?
Hi @Nicole Seaman, hope everything is ok. With you and your family. I just wanna ask whether there will be an instuctional video and learning spreadsheet for P1.T4 credit risk and capital allocation. As there are some quantitative concepts that I did not understand reading from GARP books.
Hey guys, is anyone having problems with the note's formulas? The numbers are over each other, which makes it impossible for me to understand them. I even tried copying them and paste them on another files, but some are only mathematical signs and it takes to long. Please let me know where I could open them or in what type of file.

Best regards,
Agree. Wondering if there's a list with the formulae appearing correctly.
Hello. Hope you and your family stay healthy. Kindly provide me answer posted below

Assume that a 2 year corporate bond pays a coupon of 6 % per annum semi annually and has a yield of 8%. The yield for all maturities on risk free bonds is 4% per annum (expressed with continuous compounding). Assume that defaults can take place every year (immediately before coupon payment) and the recovery rate is 50%.

Hello David, can you help me solve this question?

Consider a ten-year mortgage loan secured by residential real estate, with an EAD of Euro 250,000 and an estimated LGD of 10 %. Supposing the customer’s PD is 2%, compute the capital requirement under the Basel II IRB approach, the standardized approach of Basel II, and under Basel I? Please explain step by step

In the FRTB, the liquidity horizon are 10,20,40,60, 120 but also see 10,20,60, 120, 250. Are these typos or relate to FRTB and Basel^
