Basel III will introduce changes that are expected to significantly increase the capital charge on uncollateralised exposures, and regulators are pushing mandatory clearing of derivatives to mitigate counterparty risk.

As a result, banks have sharpened their CVA pricing and modelling infrastructure, and most have dedicated traders dynamically hedging their CVA for what it really is: a (very) complex exotic risk.
