This course covers many aspects of credit portfolio theory and the modeling of credit instruments in RiskFrontier. Participants are guided through detailed portfolio calculations, including Monte Carlo simulations and asset correlations. The major quantitative components are discussed, including lattice valuation, risk and return measures, portfolio standard deviation and tail risk, simulation, credit migration, correlation, recovery, and portfolio optimization. We also focus on the model validation studies.
