Summary: Financial positions subject to risk of default typically involve three components: risk which is traded, diversifiable or neither. The project will analyse the relationship of these default risk components by rigorously modeling default dependence between obligors and harnessing the information in liquid market prices, such as credit spreads. On the basis of risk capital allocation, it will eliminate the arbitrariness in pricing non-traded risks. This will yield an integrated credit risk management methodology ready for the next generation of regulatory requirements currently under discussion by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision.
