Understanding the 3 Types of Credit Risk

 Understanding the 3 Types of Credit Risk

Three main risk categories are default, exposure at default, and probability of

default. Each of these categories has their own key differences. Understanding these

different types is necessary when deciding how to evaluate your portfolio. The

probabilities of default are the basis for evaluating the risk. Exposure at default is

the riskiest, as it will cause the largest loss for the financial institution. Listed below

are the three categories. Once you understand them, you'll be able to decide how to

allocate your resources accordingly.

Probability of default

The Probability of Default is a financial term used to quantify the chances that a loan

applicant will default on their repayments. It is based on the characteristics of an

applicant, as well as the economic and financial factors influencing that individual's

ability to repay the loan. There are many factors that affect this metric, and the

probabilities of default vary across different companies. Here are some of the most

common ways that a lender may assess a loan applicant's risk.

Probability of default is calculated by comparing a borrower's current financial

performance to the potential future financial situation of the borrower. The higher

the probability of default, the higher the interest rate a lender is likely to charge.

Higher interest rates correspond to a higher probability of default. It is a key risk

parameter in credit risk management and can help a borrower get a loan at a

favorable interest rate.

The PD is determined by a number of factors, including the borrower's past

performance, country of operation, and market share. The PD value is usually one

year or less, and banks use this value as a basis for regulatory capital requirements.

Internal and external credit risk rating systems estimate the likelihood of default for

each entity. High-risk rating classes are identified by higher probability values.

These models are often interpreted as a form of trigger mechanism.

Loss given default

The amount of money that a lender is likely to lose if a borrower defaults on their

loan is called the loss given default (LGD). This is calculated as a percentage of total

exposure at the time of default, and it is an important measurement of risk. This

calculation includes the client's exposure, as well as the borrower's existing assets

and liens. LGD is usually expressed as a percentage of total exposure, and it is an

important metric for financial institutions to estimate their potential loss. The LGD is

tied to the collateral security used for the loan. When the lender defaults on a loan,

he or she is obligated to pay back all of the principal and interest that were due on

the loan.

The probability of default is a key metric for quantitative risk analysis. The

probability of default is a measure of how likely a borrower will default on their loan.

The exposure at default represents the total value of the loan at the time of default,

minus the proceeds of repurchase. The loss given default is a proportion of total

exposure and will vary by industry. This calculation may not be relevant to all loans,

but it is crucial to understand the implications of default.

Exposure at default

EaD stands for exposure at default and is the calculated value of a company's

expected loss if a borrower fails to repay his or her loan. It varies from company to

company and is determined by calculating the risk already drawn on the loan, plus

the proportion of undrawn risk. A bank calculates an EAD value for each loan and

uses it to estimate its overall risk of default. It also measures changes in exposure as

the borrower repays the loan.

In the United States, the federal government and central banks guarantee a portion

of this exposure. The FDIC, for example, guarantees the deposit portion of this

exposure. The National Credit Union Administration guarantees all other exposure.

For this exposure to be considered conditionally guaranteed, the national bank must

assign it a 20 percent risk weight. It must also ensure that the obligor performs all of

his contractual principal and interest payments.

The best estimate of an EAD from a national bank or Federal savings association is

used as the benchmark for determining the economic loss a firm may incur if the

obligor fails to make his or her payments. It represents a typical obligor in the loss

severity grade. Further, the EAD is an estimate of a company's potential loss over the life of the loan.
