Credit Risk Management

Credit risk is the possibility that the value of financial transactions or a credit portfolio deteriorates through the worsening of the creditworthiness of debtors. We offer a package system "CreditGauge"registered trademark, with which the user can measure the credit risk of a credit portfolio. Various functions are implemented in CreditGaugeregistered trademark, to enable the user to compute a wide range of risk measures. For instance, using CreditGaugeregistered trademark, the user can calculate EL (Expected Loss), which is the average credit loss occurring within a year, and VaR (Value at Risk), which is the maximum credit loss within a certain confidence interval. These risk measures are calculated based on the rating of debtors and the fundamental data of a credit portfolio, including EAD (Exposure at Default) and LGD (Loss Given Default).
