Fast stochastic forward sensitivities in Monte Carlo simulations using stochastic automatic differentiation (with applications to initial margin valuation adjustments)

Decrease your risk by being informed. This may be great sleepytime reading (better yet, a way to defeat insomnia), but it’s important to never rest or relax in a competitive environment. Know your stuff, and use it.

A typical application of stochastic forward sensitivities is the exact calculation of an initial margin valuation adjustment, assuming the initial margin is determined from a sensitivity- based risk model. The ISDA Standard Initial Margin Model is an example of such a model.
