Validation techniques and performance metrics for loss given default models

David Li, Ruchi Bhariok, Sean Keenan, Stefano Santilli

It discusses the use of quantitative metrics such as the confusion matrix, the expected loss shortfall, and the loss capture ratio as part of a periodic validation/approval process.
