Stressing Transition Matrices

Page content

Release of version 0.4.1 of the transitionMatrix package focuses on stressing transition matrices

Stressed Density

Further building the open source OpenCPM toolkit this realease of transitionMatrix features:

  1. Feature: Added functionality for conditioning multi-period transition matrices
  2. Training: Example calculation and visualization of conditional matrices
  3. Datasets: State space description and CGS mappings for top-6 credit rating agencies

Conditional Transition Probabilities

The calculation of conditional transition probabilities given an empirical transition matrix is a highly non-trivial task involving many modelling assumptions. This version of the transitionMatrix includes a canonical implementation that assumes a Gaussian single factor process as the driver of the joint rating dynamics. The technical documentation is available under in Open Risk Manual under the transition matrix category.

Predefined Credit Rating System Descriptions

This release includes also the state space description (labels, mappings to CQS etc.) for the six largest credit rating agencies (NB: by European market share)
