Niklas Wagner – Credit Risk
- Focuses on new products and their applications in the financial services industry
- Addresses important credit risk issues, including the growing market of credit derivatives
- Examines issues specific to certain geographic areas, such as Latin America, Argentina, and the United States
- Discusses recent cases of corporate bankruptcy, including Tyco, Worldcom, Enron, and Parmalat
- Covers default and recovery risks, credit ratings, and applications within the Basel II framework
- Uses numerous models, such as single-name credit risk, Black-type, stochastic intensity, generalized multifactor, and Monte Carlo, to explain rates, risk, and pricing
Featuring contributions from leading international academics and practitioners, Credit Risk: Models, Derivatives, and Management illustrates how a risk management system can be implemented through an understanding of portfolio credit risks, a set of suitable models, and the derivation of reliable empirical results.

- Addresses the relationships between the DJ iTraxx credit default swap (CDS) index and the stock market as well as CDS spreads and macroeconomic factors
- Investigates systematic and firm-specific default risk factors, compares CDS pricing results from the CreditGrades industry benchmark to a trinomial tree approach, and applies the Hull-White intensity-based model to the pricing of names from the CDX index
- Analyzes aggregate default and recovery rates on corporate bond defaults over a twenty-year period, the responses of hazard rates to changes in a set of economic variables, low-default portfolios, and tests on the accuracy of the Basel II framework
- Describes benchmark models of implied credit correlation risk, copula-based default dependence concepts, the fit of various copula models, and a common factor model of systematic credit risk
- Studies the pricing of options on single-name CDSs, the pricing of credit derivatives, collateralized debt obligation (CDO) price data, the pricing of CDO tranches, applications of Gaussian and Student’s t copula functions, and the pricing of CDOs
