Credit risk has only recently in history translated into modelling for a complete view of credit risk on a portfolio basis. Before new post-2007-crisis regulations emerged, new modelling techniques have been devised, not all of them successful, to ensure that the overall credit-risky positions were well understood and made more conform to what a financial institution thinks of itself and of its mission. In this course, we provides an overview of credit risk and a review of the modern techniques to model and quantify credit risk components such as probability of default and loss given default, in all areas of lending. There are no formal prerequisites.
