Calibrating risk-neutral default correlation

Abstract

The implementation of credit risk models has largely relied on the use of historical default dependence, as proxied by the correlation of equity returns. However, as is well known, credit derivative pricing requires risk-neutral dependence. Using the copula methodology, we infer risk neutral dependence from CDS data. We also provide a market application and explore its impact on the fees of some credit derivatives.
