Book Description

Held at Oakland University, School of Business Administration, Department of Accounting and Finance.

This book provides a summary of state-of-the-art methods and research in the analysis of credit. As such, it offers very useful insights into this vital area of finance, which has too often been under-researched and little-taught in academia. Including an overview of processes that are utilized for estimating the probability of default and the loss given default for a wide array of debts, the book will also be useful in evaluating individual loans and bonds, as well as managing entire portfolios of such assets.

Each chapter is written by authors who presented and discussed their contemporary research and knowledge at the Third International Conference on Credit Analysis and Risk Management, held on August 21–22, 2014 at the Department of Accounting and Finance, School of Business administration, Oakland University. This collection of writings by these experts in the field is uniquely designed to enhance the understanding of credit analysis in a fashion that permits a broad perspective on the science and art of credit analysis.
