Dynamic hedging of synthetic CDO tranches with spread risk and default contagion
The paper is concerned with the hedging of credit derivatives, in particular synthetic CDO tranches, in a dynamic portfolio credit risk model with spread risk and default contagion. The model is constructed and studied via Markov-chain techniques. We discuss the immunization of a CDO tranche against spread- and event risk in the Markov-chain model and compare the results with market-standard hedge ratios obtained in a Gauss copula model. In the main part of the paper we derive model-based dynamic hedging strategies and study their properties in numerical experiments.
