Portfolio Credit Risk Modeling
Portfolio credit risk analysis is a relatively new field of study. In the early nineties, analysts developed a wide range of models to extend the market practice of using value at risk (VAR) as a measure of portfolios’ potential losses. In this chapter, we compare different portfolio credit risk models that emphasize a common framework and we highlight how these models can be used for both regulatory and managerial purposes.
