    The financial crisis of 2007/08 caused catastrophic consequences and brought a bunch of changes around the world. Interest rates that were known to follow or behave similarly of each other diverged. Furthermore, the regulation and in particular the counterparty credit risk began to to be considered and quantified. Consequently, pre-crisis models are no longer valid. Indeed, this work sets the basis to define a valid model that considers the post-crisis world assumptions for the Mexican swap market. The model used in this work was the proposed by Fujii, Shimada and Takahashi in [Fujii et. al., 2010b]. This model allow us to value interest rate derivatives and future cash flows with the existence of a collateral agreement (with a collateral currency). In this document we build the discounting and projection curves for MXN interest rate derivatives considering the collateral currencies: USD, EUR and MXN. Also, we present the pricing when the derivative is uncollateralized. Finally, we show the effect of the cross-currency swaps when valuing through different collateral currencies.

    In this short note we provide an analytical formula for the conditional covariance matrices of the elliptically distributed random vectors, when the conditioning is based on the values of any linear combination of the marginal random variables. We show that one could introduce the univariate invariant depending solely on the conditioning set, which greatly simplifies the calculations. As an application, we show that one could define uniquely defined quantile-based sets on which conditional covariance matrices must be equal to each other if only the vector is multivariate normal. The similar results are obtained for conditional correlation matrices of the general elliptic case.
