The writer makes a speciality of a mode to cost Collateralized Debt responsibilities (CDO) tranches. the unique strategy is constructed via Castagna, Mercurio and Mosconi in 2012. The Thesis offers an extension of the unique paintings by means of generalizing the Gaussian dependence when it comes to Copula capabilities. specifically the version is rewritten for the explicit case of the Clayton copula. the strategy is utilized to cost the tranches of a CDX. through evaluating the tranches costs, it really is attainable to note that the Clayton technique results in smaller fairness and mezzanine tranches. The senior and great senior tranches degrees are larger while the dependence is modeled by way of a Clayton copula.

2 Gaussian Copula Let that ) be a vector of normally distributed random variables, such . Let is the correlation matrix of be the standard normal vector, such that . Being standardization a transformation of strictly increasing function, the copula of is the same of . This copula is given by: 37 where and refers to the joint distribution function of . The Gaussian copula does not have a closed form but can be expressed as an integral over the density of . Consider the 2-dimenional copula where is the correlation between the two random variable for | | .

A two-state of world is assumed, where the obligors default with probability , when , and survive with probability , when . That is: { where is the probability of default. Being the portfolio a set of credit-risky assets, the portfolio loss is then a random variable , defined as ∑ The simplest situation corresponds to assume uniform default probability and lack of dependence between obligors. According to these assumptions, it is possible to write: Assuming a uniform default probability and the lack of default correlation, the portfolio loss ∑ corresponds to a convolution of that follow a binomial distribution Bernoulli variables .

This is the fundamental theorem in copula framework, because ensuring that for any multivariate distribution, the univariate margins and the dependence structure can be separated, and the dependence structure is an implicit characteristic of the copula function. Some more properties of copula functions follows. ) Let random variables with copula functions , Let be be a vector of . Then for any strictly increasing set of is again a copula of the so built random vector, a copula. The copula C is non-decreasing in each argument.
