Errors Found in Study Notes P2.T6. Credit Risk

Hello @The Great Khan This is because we were not able to completely update the focus review videos this year so some of the content that was removed from the curriculum may still be included in the videos. We feel that it is better to publish the previous videos rather than to not publish them at all because much of the content is still relevant for this year's exam. Thank you, Nicole

2. Retail vs. corporate credit default (time of default)

Hi David, I would like to ask the following: some reading in Part II (either Malz, Crouhy, Stulz Golin or Hull) mentions something about the time of default. Could be another author as well but I guess it must be somewhere in the aforementioned books. It goes something like this: for corporates the probability of default is highest at the end of the loan whereas the probability of default for...

4. delaurentis - chapter 2 - recovery

I have read it many times now and still not 100 percent sure. But I guess the main point he makes is that Recovery depends heavily on the jurisdiction and type of contract and that this information is lost if you look at a Recovery from a generalized or global point of view. So from a model perspective (regarding estimation of Recovery) it would be very hard to incorporate the specific...

5. CVA Questions

To make it as simple as possible and to give you another practical example where is no upfront payment like in a long option position: 1) Suppose you are a Swap Dealer at a Banks Swap Desk. We assume there is no DVA. A client with lets say a BB rating wants to enter into a fixed rate payer swap. There is no CSA in place. To make the deal favorable for your desk you have to consider CVA. CVA...

I am stuck with this question too, I was thinking if 5% of loss on 25 loans (1% recovery rate) then that should be time 1.645 but the answer does not match!

10. GARP Part 2 Questions 76 and 33 (garp16-p2-76) (garp16-p2-33)

Just to add to the helpful comments already here: Question 76 is asking for the unconditional PD in year 4, which can be also answered by subtracting th 3-year cumulative PD from the 4-year cumulative PD: (1-5.5%)^4 - (1-5.5%)^3 = 4.64%.

11. Collateral can increase exposure?

Hi @frmqiu Yes, the language in question 2016.P2.Q33 was reported earlier in the year as imprecise. I recall that GARP agreed with our feedback. @Deepak Chitnis is correct that the solution implicitly is the discrete conditional PD, but the phrasing suggests it wants a joint probability. Please see here for more detail

17. Merton drift in DD

Hi All, P2.T6.R43 I am trying to conceptually understand how the DD value is calculated statistically. The numerator is the expected value of the price, and the denominator is the standard deviation. My question relates to the numerator. Assume T-t=1 ln(Vo/K) is the current log "return" at T=0. We then add what I assume is the expected drift until maturity (r-(sig^2)/2). How am I supposed...

Hi @no_ming In this question, the type of instruments don't really matter as the question is giving you the mark-to-market value ("current market value" of the positions. Credit exposure is max(value, 0). So the credit exposure here without netting is 54, but with netting it is only 21: Without netting: max(0, +21) + max(0, -33) + max(0, +33) = 54 With netting: max(0, 21 - 33 + 33) = 21

Hi to all! If I understood correctly, banks apply a commitment fee (fixed percentage) on the undrawn portion of a credit line to hedge the further expected loss associated with that credit exposition. So you have to pay more if you are using a small drawn portion of the credit line. Now, given the fact that a firm with an high rating (such as AA or A) will only use a small part of the credit...

29. Credit Exposure

Hi @Stuti It's the same square root rule that let's us scale volatility/VaR per sqrt(ΔT) but therefore importantly it is conditional on the same i.i.d. assumption, namely that the returns of the credit risk factor are independent. Further, this is the simplest possible credit exposure profile; i.e., a single i.i.d. credit risk factor. For example, in a swap, sqrt(ΔT) tends to characterize...

Hi @no_ming Yes, on one level, that's correct: the question implies an increase in price and, if we naively assume that the price determines the collateral posted (as the question implies), then the price increase implies additional collateral is posted.

31. Real world application: Deriving default probabilities from observed CDS spreads

Hi there, I have to solve a problem which is actually a real world application of Malz, Chapter 7 - Bootstrapping default probabilities given an observable CDS spread curve. Please refer to the excel attached: I have created an excel spreadsheet that should do the calculation. What it basically does is - given an observable CDS spread curve - modelling the cash flows of a hypothetical CDS...
