CREDIT RISK FRONTIERS

When the financial crisis started in 2007 and exploded in 2008, markets experienced one of the most severe shocks ever. During this time, it became clear that there were some serious problems with credit risk modeling in general and credit derivatives in particular.

In the wake of this event, many involved in this field were left asking: What issues and challenges should be addressed? And what lessons can be learned from the credit mess? Credit Risk Frontiers offers answers to these and other questions by presenting the latest research in this field and examining important issues exposed by the financial crisis.

PRAISE FOR CREDIT RISK FRONTIERS

"The role of credit derivatives in the current financial crisis has been widely discussed by regulators, investors, academics, and the general public. In this comprehensive book, the editors put together an impressive array of contributions written by the well–known experts in the field. It would be helpful to anyone who wants to understand the theoretical and practicalaspects of credit derivatives and their role in the broader financial context. I recommend it highly."
Professor Alexander Lipton, Co–head of the Global Quantitative Group, Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Visiting Professor, Imperial College

"This is a collection of papers dealing with credit risk modeling and credit derivatives with great clarity. The coverage is extensive, from expert opinions on the current credit crisis to cutting–edge research on the credit market, including the valuation of CVA and counterparty risk, which is one of the hottest issues in the current environment. The volume should be read not only by credit specialists but also academics and students in particular who wish to work in this area."
Masaaki Kijima, Graduate School of Economics, Kyoto University
