Credit risk attributes (Merton Structural Model Framework) Default probabilities (Mark to Model valuation under the risk neutral measure) Loss Given Default Loan Equivalent Exposure Based on Usage Given Default Correlation structure based on KMV asset return factor model estimated over period Expected credit migration based on bond migration data Expected benchmark portfolio performance meets business plan objectives Benchmark subject to selected prudential, and generally nonbinding, policy and business constraints Scenario based optimization model is implementation of Conditional Value at Risk (CVAR) approach discussed in Rockafellar, R.T. and Uryasev, S., Optimization of Conditional Value at Risk, mimeo, September 5, 1999; and in related papers Focus on CVAR as risk measure Addresses skewed credit return distribution Addresses risks of greatest concern to the bank CVAR Coherent Mathematically tractable and intuitive wrt decomposition and analysis of risk drivers
