The Basel II Risk Parameters

: 2006

: 978-3-540-33087-5


The focus of this book is on the estimation and validation of the three key Basel II risk parameters, probability of default (PD), loss given default (LGD), and ex- sure at default (EAD). Since the new regulatory framework will become operative in January 2007 (at least in Europe), many banks are in the final stages of imp- mentation. Many questions have arisen during the implementation phase and are discussed by practitioners, supervisors, and academics.
