Managing Credit Risk With Credit And Macro Derivatives


  • Udo Broll
  • Gerhard Schweimayer
  • Peter Welzel


We use the industrial organization approach to the microeconomic s of banking, augment Ed by uncertainty and risk aversion, to ex a mine c r edit derivatives and macro derivatives as instruments t o hedge c r edit risk for a large commercial bank. In a partial-analytic framework we distinguish between the probability of default and the loss given default ,model different forms of derivatives , and derive hedge rules and strong and weak separation properties between deposit and loan decisions on the one hand and hedging decisions on the o t her . We also suggest how bank-specific macro derivatives could be designed from common macro index as which serve as underlings of recently introduced financial products.
