We first introduce the basic concepts of the brand new conic finance theory. Conic finance delivers a consistent two-price theory fundamentally modelling the acceptability of risks. Conic pricing (or bid and ask pricing) of credit risk shows how counterparty credit risk when conservatively valued at the bid price results in larger CVA than would occur under risk neutral pricing. On the other hand when it comes to the debt valuation adjustment, since it is a liability, it must be priced at the ask. This mitigates and can even eliminate the DVA.
