With the recent development of non-standard credit derivations, it has become increasingly important to develop pricing models for these illiquid products which are consistent with the pricing models and the market quotes of related liquid instruments.
Svenja Hager aims at pricing non-standard illiquid portfolio credit derivatives which are related to standard CDO traces with the same underlying portfolio of obligors. Instead of assuming a homogeneous depedence structure between the default times of different obligors, as it is assumed in the standard market model, the author focuses on the use of heterogeneous correlation structures.
