InteDelta Delivery Lifecycle for CVA

The InteDelta Delivery Lifecycle for CVA is a structured delivery methodology designed to take into account the specific needs of implementing CVA within an organisation. This incorporates areas of key importance to the successful implementation of a CVA process such as:

  • Definition of the overall mandate of the CVA desk within the organisation
  • Definition of the required policies and risk methodologies needed to support the management of CVA
  • Putting together the business case for making the necessary investment in CVA processes (covering elements such as P&L volatility reduction, exposure reduction, capital benefits etc)
  • Assessment of the technology solutions available to provide CVA functionality (taking into account both in-house technology and the market leading CVA vendor solutions)
  • Implementation of the integrated business and technology changes for CVA in optimal timeframes

This approach is fully aligned with the overall InteDelta Delivery Lifecycle, therefore leveraging the consistency of approach and tools provided under this structure.

In line with this structure, the core of the InteDelta Delivery Lifecycle for CVA involves delivery of a modular set of services in order to take organisations through the end to end process of change in the area of CVA: from diagnosis and definition; through to benefits assessment; and finally implementation.

For many of these modular steps, we have developed industry proven tools to support our clients in the given stage of the process. In most cases, these tools have been specifically developed with the needs of CVA initiatives in mind.
