Estimating correlation parameters in credit portfolio models under time-varying and nonhomogeneous default probabilities
This paper proposes new maximum likelihood estimation methods that offer greater flexibility than current methods and can account for finite portfolio sizes, scarce default data and time varying, nonhomogeneous default probabilities.
Stressing of migration matrixes for International Financial Reporting Standard 9 and Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process calculations
This paper demonstrates that correlation estimates are sensitive to model assumptions and estimation methodology by comparing three methods used to stress rating transition matrixes.
This paper analyzes how soaring demand in the lending market shortly before a financial crisis can affect one of the main parameters in the internal ratings-based approach: the asset correlation.

A correlated structural credit risk model with random coefficients and its Bayesian estimation using stock and credit market information
Using historical equity and credit market data, this paper illustrates the validation of a structural correlated default model applied to Black–Cox setups.
This paper presents a simple model for joint defaults and shows how it can be applied to pricing and risk-managing instruments that are sensitive to credit correlation.
Collateralised debt obligations have largely gone under the radar since the 2007 financial meltdown, when their market collapsed. Nearly every attempt at explaining the cause of their failure pointed towards flawed assumptions in pricing models and…
