### Abstract

We present a simple bottom-up dynamic credit model that can be calibrated simultaneously to the market quotes on CDO tranches and individual CDSs constituting the credit portfolio. The model is most suitable for the purpose of evaluating the hedge ratios of CDO tranches with respect to the underlying credit names. Default intensities of individual assets are modeled as deterministic functions of time and the total number of defaults accumulated in the portfolio. To overcome numerical difficulties, we suggest a semi-analytic approximation that is justified by the large number of portfolio members. We calibrate the model to the recent market quotes on CDO tranches and individual CDSs and find the hedge ratios of tranches. Results are compared with those obtained within the static Gaussian Copula model.

The latter procedure is similar to calibration of the local intensity model to CDO tranches, with function Y (N, t) playing a role similar to that of the local intensity =-=[4, 22]-=-. In this section, we will first assume that the function Y (N, t) is given and describe the calibration to the single-name survival probabilities. Then, we will turn to calibration of the function Y ... |
