Computations of implied copulas are a central element in producing loss distributions of bespoke portfolios and pricing their tranches. This process is made feasible by the availability of index tranche pricing data. Luigi Vacca shows how it is possible...
Consistent calibration of a credit index and its tranches across maturities with a single arbitrage-free model is a difficult problem. Here, Damiano Brigo, Andrea Pallavicini and Roberto Torresetti show that a simple loss dynamics based on the generalised...
Stewart Inglis and Alex Lipton describe dynamic and static factor models for credit correlation, and show how the static model can be calibrated to the market and used for the pricing of standard and bespoke tranches including tranchelets
Riccardo Rebonato proposes an extension of the Libor market model (LMM) that recovers the stochastic, alpha, beta, rho (SABR) caplet prices almost exactly for all strikes and maturities. The dynamics of the volatility are chosen so as to be consistent...
The existing generation of credit derivatives models is unsatisfactory because they generally contain arbitrage, cannot describe the dynamics of the process, and are hard to extend beyond vanilla products. Martin Baxter has created a new tractable family...
In response to industry fears of a collateral crunch, regulators have revised the proposed rules on margining for uncleared over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives.You can find out more by downloading this white paper here.
