Correlation at First Sight

Abstract

The synthetic collateralized debt obligation (CDO) market has, over the last year, seen a significant increase in liquidity and transparency. The availability of published prices such as TracX and iBoxx tranches permits the calibration of model parameters, which was not achievable a year ago. This paper details what we believe has become the market standard approach in CDO valuation. The valuation model is introduced and analysed in depth to develop a better practical understanding of its use and the implications of parameter selection and calibration. In particular, we examine the idea that correlation within a copula model can be seen to be an equivalent measure to volatility in a standard B&S option framework and, correspondingly, we seek to calibrate smile and skew.
